Korean version of “Too Hot To Handle”: “naughty touch” from a male participant drew intense reactions
The MC of this dating reality show was shocked at this super daring action of a male participant.
Korean broadcasting station iHQ recently broadcasted new romance reality show “Eden – Descendants Of Instinct”, the Korean version of “Too Hot To Handle” which previously drew attention with a teaser video released on June 14th.
In the new episode, male cast members Lee Seung Jae, Kim Chul Min, Lee Jung Hyun, Yang Ho Seok, and female cast members Sun Ji Hyun, Kim Joo Yeon, Lee Yoo Na, and Kim Na Yeon, were engaged in a pair dodgeball match, all to win rights for bed assignments.
For this game, Lee Seung Jae and Kim Na Yeon, Yang Ho Seok and Seon Ji Hyun, Lee Yoo Na and Lee Jung Hyun, as well as Kim Cheol Min and Kim Joo Yeon were paired together. The rule stated that the pair would be eliminated if women were hit by the ball, so each man tried to protect his partner by putting them behind him.
Ho Seok, in particular, actively attempted to shield Seon Ji Hyun, and put his arms behind and around her. The two tried to move together as if they were one body, while MC Simeez watched them through VCR.
Badly wanting to win the game, Yang Ho Seok accidentally touched Sun Ji Hyun’s buttlocks while trying to protect his partner. Seeing this, F.T.Island’s Lee Hong Ki, who hosted the show, got embarrassed and shouted “Time”, interrupting the game.
Meanwhile, MC Yoon Bo Mi laughed out loud, constantly saying “Oh my” and asking if the footage will be suitable for airing. Lee Hong Ki then copied Yang Ho Seok’s hand shape, asking: “Why are you holding it like this?” A caption titled “Naughty hand” also appeared on the screen. In the end, Yang Ho Seok’s team won the game, and Seon Ji Hyun shared about her partner’s touch during a subsequent interview: “I was too busy flying around, I didn’t notice.”
“Eden, Descendants Of Instinct” is a love reality program in which eight men and women find their love based on their conditions and excitement toward each other. Living in the same Eden House, they will look for their true love without knowing each other’s age and wealth. The show airs every Tuesday at 10:30pm (KST).
