Barefoot Friends Episode 6: The Scorecard (3/3)
MVP AwardStephanie: This week’s MVP is going to be really hard. It's spread out so much this week. kfangurl: Well, we have Hyun-joong rocking the shrimp-catching in Part 1. Cherry Cordial: Yeah, Hyun-joong did really well at the beginning, but then it got more spread out. He did well in the photos, using his idol fame with the Japanese tourists. But Jong-shin did well there too, with his English. kfangurl: Si-yoon did well with the tourists too. Stephanie: Yeah, in the second part Si-yoon came forward and Hyun-joong stepped back. I loved Si-yoon this episode. He was so freaking cute. CC: Yes, he was... and his studying paid off again, even though his team lost. Stephanie: And he opened the episode... kfangurl: With his screams. Stephanie: It's so funny how my adoration switches per episode from Si-yoon to Hyun-joong. I'm so fickle. kfangurl: But is that an MVP thing, the girlish screams and wobbly legs? CC: Nah, screams and wobbly legs are cute, but not MVP material. kfangurl: I liked the sageuk talk though. That was spontaneous and fun and witty. CC: Yes, it was. Actually helping the team, which he did in the race, should count, though. Stephanie: I feel like we should hand out a pity MVP. I think Jong-shin should be tossed in there because we know he's going to be KILLED by his wife when the cameras are turned off. kfangurl: AWWWW. Poor Jong-shin. I do pity him. Stephanie: Like an MVP in memoriam. CC: LOL, at least a nomination... Stephanie: He did work very hard in the bird race too. And spoke tons of English in the picture challenge. kfangurl: His English did come in as very useful. Stephanie: I think he's a backseat MVP. You don't think of him right away — but when you do — you remember all the stuff he did. And right now, he's probably already dead. CC: ROFL. Yeah, I see what you mean. kfangurl: LOL! Death by wife-glare. Stephanie: I think it’s the least we could do for him. CC: OK, I'll agree to that, now that we've listed all his contributions. And his death... kfangurl: So in memoriam, Jong-shin the MVP... Stephanie: YAY! kfangurl: He was a good man.
Favorite Quotekfangurl: My favorite quote this episode is this little exchange that happens in the van, after Team Jong-shin gets the flurry of anxious phone calls from their managers, all urging them to hurry to the airport because they each have full schedules the next day.
Bum-soo: “I'm in trouble. I have an appointment for a facial massage.” Jong-shin: “Forget about the radio show. You should make it for the massage.”HA! Priorities, y’know. Stephanie: I laughed out loud when Jong-shin got the message mid-challenge that his fee for the show had been deposited into his account.
Jong-shin: “I got my energy back. I just got paid!”Cherry Cordial: When Si-yoon’s team is on the way to the bird market, as he’s studying his notes and making a battle plan, he narrows his eyes at the camera and says:
Si-yoon: “Bring it on! I got it!”Go Si-yoon! Fighting!
Favorite Screenshotkfangurl: My favorite screenshot has to be Hyun-joong breaking into a random spontaneous dance when his team finds their final tourist for their picture challenge, who happens to be from Hong Kong. Skipping and flailing his arms about wildly, Hyun-joong chants:
“Hong Kong! Hong Kong! Hong Kong!” Too funny.Stephanie: My Favorite? I was going to go with one of the bird shots, but really? I love Jong-shin’s kids. So freaking cute. Cherry Cordial: Since Stephanie gave up the bird shots, I get my pick of the cute photos that Si-yoon’s team took, and I choose the last one. After multiple attempts, they’re sweaty and tired, but successful. What about you? Which were your favorite moments in this episode?
