Broadcaster Yoo Jae-suk accurately predicted singer Kim Jong-kook’s reaction.
On this day, the production team called the members one by one, and said that they should arrive between 8 and 11 o’clock on the day of filming. Later, Yang Se-chan was the first member to arrive at the set, and it was 8:01. Yoo Jae-suk arrived second. The production team explained the rule, “Usually, you get off work after working 8 hours at the company. However, coming first doesn’t mean leaving work first. Yang Se-chan came to work first at 8:01. It’ll be 4:01 after 8 hours. One person at 4:01. 5 people at the average time of 5 people. The last one will leave the office according to the time he/she arrives.”
Yoo Jae-suk was furious, saying, “You can’t do that.” The production team said, “Thanks to you two, the time to get off work and the average time have been shortened.” Yoo Jae-suk then called Ji Suk-jin, urged him to come quickly and lied that a penalty would be given depending on the arrival time.
Yoo Jae-suk predicted, “Jong-kook would say ‘It’s okay. It doesn’t matter. I can come last’. It’s not fun.“
Yoo Jae-suk called Kim Jong-kook on the phone and asked, “Where are you?” Kim Jong-kook said, “I’m slowly heading there,” and Yoo Jae-suk said, “You have to come quickly.” Kim Jong-kook said, “Who wants to go to work early?” and Yoo Jae-suk said, “The penalty will be decided in the order of coming. Come quick”.
However, Kim Jong-kook responded, “I expected it to some extent, but are we going to die in that penalty?” Hearing this, Song Ji-hyo burst into laughter and said, “I said the exact same thing earlier.” Yoo Jae-suk added, “I’m in a good mood right now, so I’m speaking to you in this tone.”
After hanging up the phone, Yoo Jae-suk grunted. Haha said, “All we can do is talk behind his back.” Eventually, Jeon So-min, Song Ji-hyo, Haha, Ji Suk-jin, and Kim Jong-kook arrived at the filming site in this order.
