Great episode, showcasing the members’ competitive streak, HaMyungKook’s amusing reunion, and Monday Couple’s sweet moments. If we add Kang Ho Dong into the mix, this would have been epic! Is it possible? Say it is!
Our guest this week is X-man’s regular screaming ajusshi: Park Myung Soo, along with singer IU. Game is to correctly guess the ratio of Lamb vs Wolf, chosen by all 9 people. First place team gets to change their cards, after knowing the current ratio. It’s a big advantage to win the games.
Right off the bat, they’re already dancing to the old steps. Old habits never die. Comparison? Now: Less hair, more wrinkles. 😉
The battle between the elders, Myung Soo asks what Suk Jin has to offer RM. hehe. I love their signature air kick.
The trusting team of Dad Suk Jin, Daughter Ji Hyo, and Future Son-in-law Gary. They’re the total opposite of the deceptive game Red team is playing with each other. Even IU is wary of revealing her choice. Who shall be the ultimate victor?
During the car ride, Sparta laughs to Myung Soo’s creative mantra for Running Man. Why does he and Haha cover their mouths like proper saguek ladies?
Blue Team is late, so Myung Soo wonders, “Why do you keep such people around? Just get rid of them.” Having learned their lessons about Impala’s unpredictable actions, Haha and Sparta warn him not to provoke his bad side. Myung Soo declares, “It’s the lion’s nature to go for the weakest!” The rest dies in laughter.
When Blue Team does arrive, some icy remarks are passed back and forth between the elders, and Sparta whispers, “This sounds like Dangyunhaji!” Cue Grasshopper gets into position. But the battle finishes pretty quickly because our Impala might just be a little hurt from Myung Soo’s attack: “The lion will hunt down the lamb. You have weakness written all over your face!”
The members feel bad and rush to Impala’s side. Aw.
First game is to find weird things in the museum. Gary’s epic fail, mistaking a zebra for a pony. Seriously, I am dying! xD A grown man using the word pony is just too funny!
Gary is the last member on the Blue Team that has yet to finish. He gives his bag over to Ji Hyo and the PD asks, “Song Ji Hyo might look at your card.” He replies, “It’s okay. When it comes her, I have nothing to hide.”
EEEEEEEEEEE!!! Good lord, this man. He makes me blush.
The second game consists of being a waiter. One member howls while the chair descends into a container of water. The other two members have to gather all the chairs in the restaurant before the howling stops.
Third game is my favorite cause it’s exciting and everyone has a chance to shine. But of course, name-tag ripping in an enclosed ring is Sparta’s favorite game.
First round. Competitors entering the ring without knowing who they are facing from the other two teams.
Gary teams up with Myung Soo against Giraffe:
Myung Soo getting thrown around. haha! He loses.
Gary clinches the win for the Blue team. Whew. He makes a pretty risky move by sliding down. If Giraffe had a tight grasp on his name tag, he would’ve lost!
What kind of pose is this gentlemen? XD
Elated Ji Hyo screams, “We want you, Kang Gary!” Omiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!
She mutters that he was awesome. Smugly, Gary confirms: “That’s just how I usually am.” Yesh, you dark horse!
2nd Round with the ladies against HaHa. Ji Hyo is always so nice to the females. I am still upset how she purposely allowed her back exposed to Min Jung last week. It was so obvious.
Myung Soo tries to interrupt the game but Suk Jin hilariously flies out and the two is involved in a childish brawl.
After eliminating Haha, the ladies play it fair. The fastest person to rip off the name tag wins. Of course, Ji Hyo’s experience and tight grip leaves IU without a second to blink before it’s over.
Third round. Impala joins Sparta to take down Grasshopper. That’s not how this should be!
Sparta busies himself with a form of art. Tying the victim’s sleeves neatly into a knot. So mean! 😛
Fourth round. IU joins Myung Soo against Impala but our elder is not a joke. He quickly gets rid of Myung Soo while IU beats him because of Kwang Soo’s interference. GOSH! LEE KWANG SOO! I want to see what tricks Impala has up his sleeves!
Fifth Round. Ji Hyo and the two kids. She allies with Haha. Wow. She’s really fierce in this round, even the way she protects Haha’s back is defensive. Look at the gang face she has on.
Still Kwang Soo eliminates Haha, leaving Ji Hyo to attack him nonstop.
Dishing out a leg….
The funny thing about this sequence is the shot of Gary’s VJ. He’s in awe of Ji Hyo!
Still on top!
*Step step some more*
For a brief 2 seconds, Kwang Soo is able to roll away…but Ji Hyo crawls like she’s in a horror movie to corner him and rip off that stubborn name tag. Our girl really wants her gold today, okay?
Kwang Soo assuring his noona that he’s okay with a hug. Aw.
Last match. Sparta roars to scare Grasshopper.
Really intense battle. The desire to win is visually arresting.
The finals. Everyone stands on a board in front of a pool. Those with the correct ratio of lamb vs wolf remains dry, while the rest goes for another round of swimming.
Funny how Impala is the decision-maker because in this world, he’s Ji Hyo’s dad. Of course, he’s going to help…
Despite being in different tents, Monday Couple manages to choose the same ratio. I love when they hug! And how cute are they picking lamb? Don’t be fooled by the lamb’s furry coat! Once that layer is off, you’ll face muscles and brains!
And this is how our Golden Lamb Couple is born, well, I like to call them that! It is also a nice touch how they got the ratio right the first round and get it right the last round.
