However, he didn’t feel enough confidence to wear the jacket and kept it in his closet for a long time. Ji Suk-jin showed them to the SF9 members and asked them to buy the jacket and pants.
Ji Suk-jin asked Chanhee to wear the pants, saying they were made by a famous brand. Surprisingly, the pants looked very good on him and matched his stage outfit. Rowon tried on the jacket and looked astonishingly handsome and stylish on it. A very different image compared to Ji Suk-jin’s look when he wore the jacket. The pants and jacket suited very well as their stage costume.
On the other hand, Song Ji-hyo brought a flamethrower that she received as a present from her manager. She said that her manager ordered the flamethrower from a foreign country for her to solve a bug problem in her house.

Jinyoung introduced GOT7’s latest single, You Calling My Name, and danced in front of the entire cast. His dancing style is calm and charming, yet manly and charismatic. Haha said that it was no wonder that Jeon So-min fell for him.
There was also another funny scene in this episode. Jeon So-min had been learning and practicing Korean traditional dance for three months, and she was very eager to show it to GOT7’s Jinyoung. She removed her jacket, even though other members said that it wasn’t necessary. She said that since hand and arm movement are very important, she needed to take off her jacket and show the movement to the viewers. However, as soon as she lifted her arms, the entire cast could see her sweaty armpit. Yoo Jae-suk acted fast and asked for her to stop the dance immediately. The scene was very funny, and Jeon So-min couldn’t help but feel embarrassed.
