This edition was a little special. With the intention of incorporating the celebration of chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving), ASC invited fans to participate in this 90-minute long special episode, along with BTOB. In addition to regular MCs Eric Nam and LED Apple’s Hanbyul, Chocolat’s Tia also returned as a special MC for the episode and viewers were also treated to a rare sight of the MCs in hanboks (Korean traditional costumes).

Like previous episodes, before the rehearsal goes underway, the MCs and guests were given short briefings.

(A/N: See that bag of McDonald’s french fries on the table? The studio didn’t provide it, so it was most likely brought in by BTOB themselves. It’s heartening to know that despite maintaining their toned physiques, they still managed to indulge in some fast food.)

And the rehearsal begins (with some ‘drama’)!

As chuseok is a holiday where family members gather together to celebrate, MC Eric got upset when the subject was brought up and even fake cried on the floor. Oh well, what better consolation than a hug from Minhyuk and Peniel.

And moving on from the ‘drama’…

Selected members of the audience and BTOB were divided into two groups for a game of charades, with MC Hanbyul and MC Eric leading one team each.

To keep up with the festive mood, jegijagi (Korean traditional game) was being played too. Two members of the audience were picked and were paired up with the BTOB members. (A/N: jegijagi is the Korean version of our ‘chapteh’)

Tickets to Justin Bieber Concert in Korea

As this is a chuseok special, three tickets to Justin Bieber’s concert in Korea were given to three members of the audience. It was cute to note that Ilhoon seemed really interested in winning the ticket too.
