TV Highlights: Saturday May 13, 2017

*Note: TV Highlights is a series where I summarize content and feedback on the most popular clips from shows airing on the previous day. I only post about clips that have over 100,000 views on Naver’s TV Highlights. On Naver TV, there are usually less than ten video clips a day that reach that many views, so these posts are the best of the best. The ratings mentioned in this post are taken from Neilson Korea – nationwide stats.

Armpit Sweat Park

Psy demonstrates his dance for “New Face” which involves a lot of throwing his arms in the air giving audiences a good view of his armpit sweat. Kim Heechul also gives his try at the dance who says he memorized it after one take.

Kim Young-chul also makes a jab at how he’s on equal footing with Psy because they’ll be seeing each other on Inkigayo soon since they both are promoting their songs.
