I didn’t watch a bit of it at all yesterday due to the F1 race in Singapore. So just posting the pictures and letting them tell the stories. If you didn’t know, yesterday saw the four couples receiving their farewell vacation mission and executing it. Exactly who will stay or leave the show will be revealed next week. ONLY Andy and Solbi are confirmed to depart by the PDs at this point.
The lettuce couple, Kim Hyun Joong and Hwang Bo decided on a mini Olympics tournament between them as their farewell vacation mission. Coincidentally, the day where they collected their 100th wedding photos was also the day they got their farewell vacation mission. Hyun Joong expressed, “I know this cannot be forever but it’s just too sudden. Since it’s the last, I have to show more and do my best for Hwang Bu-in”. With that, Hyun Joong wore couple tees and competed with his wife in 100m, high jump and marathon. Hwang Bo was particularly impressed with Hyun Joong clearing 140cm in the high jump.
Hyun Joong joked, “I might have to go to Taerung (Olympic Training Village). See you in London in 4 years time. Hyun Joong remarked, “I wanted to show her the suave side of me”. Even the sudden downpour did not stop them from competing against each other in the marathon. They expressed, “It’s our first time together in the rain but it was very enjoyable to run together. Although we hate the rain, but since it’s the last time, let’s run like no tomorrow.”
For their farewell vacation, they decided on Shin Ae going to Alex’s first solo concert. Before that, Shin Ae prepared an event for Alex, a party and baking a cake for his birthday with some help from her friends. This is what Shin Ae wrote on the card, “To Alsun-i. Happy birthday. Really, congratulations! Tired from all the concert preparations, and so busy but I couldn’t do anything for you during those times..sorry. Alsun-i will be able to do well. You’re the Alsun-i that is good at everything right?” (credit to thenatstory@soompi)
Still simmering and at cold war following their ramen cooking incident, Crown J and Seo In Young decided to execute the farewell vacation mission by doing something that each liked best. They headed to Han River where Crown J wanted to rollerblade but In Young was clearly not mildly interested.
Andy and Solbi decided to go to Namsan Tower (scene where Alex and Shin Ae reunited) where they recollected the past 8 months where they have spent quality together as a make-believe couple. Many complained about the PDs shortchanging them as their duration lasted just 12+ minutes. Regardless, Solbi was already tearing like mad during the black room interviews. Prepare for bucketloads of tears next week with Andy also tearing during the preview.
Lastly before I go, just would like to know among you who visit my blog, your preferred replacement couple. Already on standby and ready to move in.
