Second Mission in Episode 44
By winning the first mission, Jang Hyuk received the running ball and made his own team. The next mission was a dining mission. Each team had to choose an Itaewon restaurant with the best food and atmosphere. The teams also had to plan the overall concept. The idea was the team’s restaurant that the employees like the most would win. The winning team would receive 2 running balls.
The winning team’s dining expenses would be fully paid. Meanwhile, the losing team would have to settle the bill themselves. To obtain the employees’ preferences, the teams could use telephones to survey the employees. Yoo Jae-suk called one of the employees which Kim Jong-kook was interested in. The straightforward Jang Hyuk asked what she thought about Kim Jong-kook and made everyone laughed.
Jang Hyuk made a call to an employee. He was too serious when asking the questions and made a trial-like atmosphere. He forgot to introduce himself and went straight to the questions. Ji Seok-jin commented that the employee who answered the phone was a bit scared of him.
After the telephone survey, each team went to Itaewon to choose the get-together location and prepared everything before the employees got off work. They had to make the restaurant posters themselves. Employees were free to choose which one they wanted to go to. Whichever had the most employees between 7 – 8 pm would win. Jang Hyuk’s team received help from Shin Seung-hwan who was familiar with the Itaewon neighborhood. His team’s concept was food and decided to go to a place with meat.
After strolling around Itaewon, Jang Hyuk’s team decided on a BBQ restaurant. Meanwhile, Kim Jong-kook’s team decided on a pancake shop as the get-together location. Each team then created their advertisement to attract the employees to their places.
The employees left the office and chose where they wanted to go. They arrived at the dinner get-together location and were welcomed by team members. Jang Hyuk’s team cooked the meat for the employees. Meanwhile, Kim Jong-kook and Haha gave their special performances.
At 8 pm, the CEO would go to the winning group. In the end, the CEO went to the BBQ restaurant where Jang Hyuk’s team was. Meanwhile, the maknae FD visited Kim Jong-kook’s team, and they failed the mission. Jang Hyuk’s team gathered 63 people while Kim Jong-kook’s team gathered 32 people. Jang Hyuk’s team won and received 2 running balls.
