Lee Soo Kyung became the second female guest (Tae Yeon was the first) to appear in the history of Family Outing and her appearance saw Family Outing obtain a season high rating of 28.0%, with the 30% mark in sight.
Lee Soo Kyung was the object of affection among the guys. On this episode, the family members were tasked to make kimchi. Yoo Jae Suk, Kim Jong Kook, Kim Su Ro and Lee Soo Kyung formed the kimchi team while Dae Sung, Park Ye Jin, Lee Hyori, Lee Chun Hee and Yoon Jong Shin took charge of the oysters.
The guys who had Lee Soo Kyung on their team couldn’t hide their delight and kept singing songs while plucking cabbages. They even gave their victory speech with the cabbage as their trophies. In contrast, Dae Sung and Yoon Jong Shin who was on the other team had disappointment etched on their faces. And thus they were given the cold stare by Ye Jin and Hyori.
Both team also competed in a game with the guys carrying the girls and making turns. Before the game, Hyori said, “Compared to strength, strong chemistry is more important. We have already partnered many times so we can definitely do it well.” But Yoo Jae Suk expressed, “Gravity is more critical, weight, etc”, which left Hyori feeling deflated. In the end, because of Lee Soo Kyung slightly slimmer figure, Hyori did lose to the power of gravity in the end.”
Despite the harsh winter, the family members made kimchi for the villagers which left viewers feeling warm in their hearts. Meanwhile for competing programs, KBS Happy Sunday (IMC, 1N2D) obtained 17.0% with 1N2D single-show rating clocking in at 28.4%. MBC Sunday Sunday Night We Got Married continued its slump with 11.8% before its 1000th episode next week.
