The controversy over how to eat grain powder among The Rainbow Club members of “I Live Alone” is drawing attention.
In MBC’s “I Live Alone,” which aired on August 12th, Hwasa left the city to go on an MT trip with “Team Hwasa” dancers. In the episode, she became captain Hwasa, not the youngest Hwasa of MAMAMOO and the Rainbow Club, and led the dancers to enjoy the trip.
The team arrived in a valley and showcased an eating show by enjoying grilled pork belly, ramen, and various vegetables. They also spent time playing various games.
At this time, Hwasa appeared with mixed grain powder, saying, “One of the things I’m hooked on these days is the old-style mill-flavored mixed grain powder.” Hwasa scooped in a large amount of mixed grain powder in the bowl, and after mixing brown sugar in, she added water.
The Rainbow Club member Key, who was watching the scene, said, “Oh, so Hwasa is from the water team.” Code Kunst asked, “What do you usually put in then?” When Key said, “I use milk,” Park Na-rae and Jeon Hyun-moo were extremely surprised, saying, “You put milk?” Key was surprised as well, “It’s like grain latte. Haven’t you guys tried it with milk?”.
At the same time, the Rainbow members said, “If you put milk in, you can’t feel the taste of old sentiment.” In fact, Hwasa put a lot of sugar, water, and ice to recreate the grain powder that grandmothers used to make in the past.
After the episode was broadcast, an untimely controversy over grain powder spread in the online community. Netizens commented their combination of water and sugar or milk and honey according to their tastes. Some netizens is drawing attention as they do not understand those who don’t eat mixed grain powder with water, while others are also confused by those who don’t eat mixed grain powder with milk.
