Watch full episode (raw):
Sang Hyun’s team sets off with enthusiasm on their healing trip with Tae-An, Chungcheong-do as their first destination to cool their intense body heat. But on arrival at the seaside, they seemed rather disappointed. Especially for Tae Gyu, this place being the filming location of the 2008 drama ‘A Tale of Legendary Libido’ in which he had acted in but which held no good memories for him.
On the benefits of eating octopus, Dr Han explains that it is a good health food for people of all ages.
Being rich in both taurine and iron, it is good for liver function, treatment of fatigue and anemia, and for growing children.
The members board the boat to get to the fishing traps for the octopus. Empty conch shells are used because the octopus mistake them for their home and crawls into them. The captain said that they can eat the octopus immediately after washing with sea water and dipping into chilli paste so the members gave it a try, but it looks really gruesome to eat them alive.
Unfortunately Tae Gyu developed severe seasickness and they had to sail back. Before they boarded the boat, they had been offered motion sickness medicine but he had refused to take it. The reason Sang Hyun was screaming at one part was because Tae Gyu wanted him to feel his icy cold hands on his face.
Seems an interesting way of cooking using a DIY roast pit but unfortunately, it did not work in this instance. The members were disappointed that the meat were still raw even after 2 hours of ‘roasting’. Perhaps if the meat had been placed directly over the hot pit instead of in the compartment next to it, the heat would have been strong enough.
The trip for Ji Won’s team was meant to recharge their energy. Besides feeling that energy from the earth when they attempted the underground roast pit, they would go on an early morning hike for the fresh air and to watch the sunrise.
Halfway up, their guide introduced to them a game of trust and to wake their other senses besides using one’s sight. So they would partner each other, with one person guiding the other who had his eyes closed. At the summit, they would also communicate with nature by making a wish. I think there are people who would even hug a tree to feel its energy and be one with nature, which is quite a lovely way of recharging. And so is watching the sunrise.
Though the members joked about wishing for money, their true wish is for health and happiness for themselves, their families and everyone around them. Tae Hui had also wished to be able to continue acting while Hyun Woo had wished for happy things and to do drama. I think Sang Hyun would have been really happy if he were here too.
