Jang Seo-hee and Yoon Gun visited a premier bridal boutique. Jang Seo-hee tried four wedding dresses to pick one for her wedding dress pictorial shoot. Yoon Gun’s favorite was the first one with mesh details that revealed Jang Seo-hee’s bare back. However Jang Seo-hee chose a cute one with a ribbon.
Jang Seo-hee said, “Since husband is a younger man, a cute one will be better”.
Yoon Gun had a different opinion but still respected Jang Seo-hee’s choice. He said, “The first one highlighted wife’s curves. But I think it’s a good idea to go with what she likes”.
Jang Seo Hee and Yoon Gun would act like a husband and wife as they live together during the variety show. On the first episode that aired on May 7, Jang Seo Hee revealed her strict character where she either likes it or hates it. At that time she said, “I’m not interested in cooking,” and to her word her husband Yoon Gun responded, “Cooking is something I will have to learn.”

This is how the kkakdugi project started and it made both Jang Seo-hee and Yoon Gun exhausted. Although they spent an arduous day making the side dish, Jang Seo-hee was able to witness the fun of cooking, showing another side to her than on the first episode.
