I had really enjoyed watching this episode, especially the hilarious part of Sang Hyun, Ji Won and Han Byeol trying to capture the large coconut crab they had found. While the crab was just sitting immobile on top of the net and not making any attempt to escape, the nervous trio were scrambling to stuff it into the plastic bag. This scene certainly had me in stitches and is best watched from the clip itself.
Sang Hyun finally managed to push the crab on to the net and excitedly calls out to Han Byeol to bring over the plastic bag.
I could not help laughing out loud at this part when Sang Hyun recoiled each time Ji Won pushed the net towards him.
At one point the net fell out as it did not completely go into the bag but they finally managed to stuff it in.
Though they had a good catch of a few fishes, crabs and a big scallop, they had to give up half the amount to the filming crew according to their prior agreement with the PD. What they had left was certainly insufficient for 7 people. Crabs have little meat and even that scallop shell contained only a small amount of edible flesh.
Still hungry after sharing what they had, Su Bin got upset which made the others feel a bit awkward.
Sang Hyun was asked to say something in view of the sombre mood …… “We have made a promise ….”
I suppose what he meant is that they were committed to the show in spite of the difficulties they have to face.
Sang Hyun covered up his face with a gauze type material to prevent mosquito bites while sleeping, but had left his hands bare. He could not sleep well, perhaps due to the uncomfortable environment. When asked by the crew, he said that looking up at the moon while sleeping made him think about his wife. He must have missed her.
In the middle of the night, they were woken up by sudden strong winds.
Sang Hyun sits next to the fireplace as he felt cold.
Their new challenges were to find the Manta rays and catch fishes which were more than 30 cm in size. If they succeed, they would receive stone money. Byeong Man takes Su Bin and Han Byeol with him for the first task while the rest would go fishing. It was also Su Bin’s dream to see the Manta Rays but unfortunately the worsening weather was not conducive. The team was disappointed and had to give up after waiting underwater for 30 minutes.
While Ryu Dam and Jeong Jin set up a trap for the wild chickens, Sang Hyun and Ji Won repaired the raft.
The discomfort from his knee problem was obvious this time.
He had earlier put on his knee protective gear as the rainy weather made his knees ache.
With the raft successfully repaired with reinforced binding, Sang Hyun and Ji Won takes it for a ride. The raft was a bit submerged with their combined weight but they managed to keep it balanced. Ji Won was nervous and a bit worried about them becoming food for the sharks.
Contrary to our earlier guess that the raft was attached to some piling, the things sticking up at the corners were actually their cameras. But I think they were never in any great danger while in the water as a couple of boats with the filming crew and others could be seen nearby. I’m sure the PD would have also ensured that their safety would never be compromised, especially with the members who cannot swim.
Feeling the exhilaration of their raft being pulled along by the wind. Just look at that happy smile.
Ji Won joins Ryu Dam and Jeong Jin on the boat while Sang Hyun enjoys fishing from his raft.
Just not their lucky day as they did not manage to catch any fishes and the Manta ray sighting was also unsuccessful.
Everyone was delighted to see the kite flying high up in the air but unfortunately the string broke and they lost it.
At that moment, it started to rain heavily and they were told by the PD that the local weather had forecast a typhoon the next day. If the weather were to worsen, they would have to withdraw but fortunately the rain stopped after some time.
No success with the wild chickens which eluded them by perching high up on the trunk and flying off into the nearby trees.
In this week’s episode 6, the typhoon strikes ……
