Knowing Bros Recap: Episode 54
Episode 54: December 10, 2016
*Note: This is a new show that I’ve just added to my recap lineup, so there will be a bit of trial and error until I get used to writing for this show’s format. That’s why today’s recap is a bit on the shorter side.
The show starts with Kim Hee-chul and Min Kyung-hoon’s “Sweet Dream” playing in the background. Kim Hee-chul walks in calling Min Kyung-hoon the music gangster. Kyung-hoon messaged him in the middle of the night to say they were at number one. It’s his first time in ten years being at the top of the charts.
Lee Sang-min adds that <Knowing Bros> was recently voted in top three for favorite broadcasts in a poll by Gallup Korea. “Kim Hee-chul, “Yeah, but we were number one.” *fist pump with Min Kyung-hoon*
Kim Hee-chul put a letter from a fan in Kim Young-chul’s desk. He put it in his desk so that he can get a little bit more screentime. The fan says she got into college after getting strength from watching . She drew a picture of all the MCs.
Today’s guests are Han Seung-yeon and Chun Jung-myung, which is a random combo.
Min Kyung-hoon, “Hello! We used to do radio together.” Han Seung-yeon, “Who me?” Min Kyung-hoon, “Yeah, aren’t you Kara’s Han Seung-yeon?” She doesn’t remember him because it was eight years ago.
Her recently ended drama <Age of Youth> actually had a few scenes where the characters watched <Knowing Bros>.
Chun Jung-myung is having difficulty speaking informally to everyone. He says he has stage fright. Kim Hee-chul, “That’s why when we went to the clubs, he just danced just a little like this.” Kim Hee-chul tells him to slap Kang Ho-dong and get over his fear of speaking informally.
The MCs tell Han Seung-yeon to chose who’s the best boyfriend, pretend they all have the same amount of money, aren’t divorced, and are all twenty.
Han Seung-yeon, “HAHAHAAA. How are you guys twenty?” She chooses Lee Sang-min because he’s sexy when talking about cars.
Now, Chun Jung-myung has to choose who he’d want to date if he were a woman. Chun Jung-myung, “Kang Ho-dong, I like sturdy men.”
Han Seung-yeon is 29 and her childhood goal is to get married before she’s 40. After being prompted, she says she definitely doesn’t want to marry Seo Jang-hoon because he’s too tall. There’s a 47 cm difference. Seo Jang-hoon, “Don’t worry, you’re not my type either. I think Kang Min-kyung is pretty.”
Chun Jung-myung’s childhood dream was Seo Jang-hoon. He wanted to be a basketball player. He tries “shooting baskets” with the “hoops” being the MC’s heads. He hits Lee Soo-geun and Kang Ho-dong in one try.
He says he doesn’t want to be desk partners with Kim Young-chul because he was so loud in the dressing room that he thought he was fighting.
