Episodes 192, 193, 194: Sentimental Spring Camping Trip
As they paired up, they rolled a dice to choose what public transportation they will use to reach the mission place. Dong Jun and Ji Hyo got the train together with Jae Suk and Seung Soo and Gary and Sang Hwa.
As the train arrived, they ran immediately to the terminal bus and received a random mission to complete. Dong Jun and Ji Hyo were tasked to eat spicy food and were prohibited to drink water.
Dong-jun really took good care of his noona since Ji Hyo can’t handle spicy food. Dong Jun took a few more bites to cover Ji Hyo’s task, but after taking one, he couldn’t get over it.
The next random mission was to submerge their faces in water for three minutes.
He took a few deep breaths to practice, and then they soaked their faces in the bowl. This time, Ji Hyo asked Dong Jun to do his best to complete the mission. But, as soon as he submerged his face, he pulled out because the water was too cold.
The following random mission was for the man to lift his partner and hold them up for a few minutes. Dong-jun lifted Ji Hyo up, and then she laughed, stating “He’s shaking.” He held out for a couple of minutes until proclaiming, “I can’t use my arms anymore!”
When night fell, the seven teams slept in a camping tent. The first team to reach the camping spot first would get a huge advantage. Ju Hwan and Kwang Soo were the first to arrive while Dong-jun and Ji Hyo were second. Even though it was pouring rain, Ji Hyo and Dong Joon were grateful to see that second place earned them comfort.
As Dong-jun and Ji Hyo showed nice chemistry, viewers started wondering whether those two had a special relationship. But, there was no news to strengthen this thought. So, it was clear they were just good friends.
Episode 236: Manly Race
This episode guest starred various handsome guys with Shinhwa (Eric, Min-woo, Jun-jin, Dong-wan, Hye-sung, and Andy) versus ZE:A (Lee Hoo (aka Moon Jun-young), Hwang Kwang-hee, Kim Tae-heon, Kim Dong-joon, Jung Hee-chul, and Park Hyung-shik). As Dong Jun had already partnered with Ji Hyo in a previous episode, he told the boys, “All of you be quiet because noona’s going to fall asleep in the car soon.”
