E9 Scorecard

MVP Award

Stephanie: MVP is going to be hard. Hmm… unless we go with Hyori. Cherry Cordial: I know, another week where there's no clear winner. And, yes, I did consider Hyori again, since I said more than once that I'll miss her. Stephanie: She cooked, picked Ho-dong's pocket, and led the game really well. OH. And most importantly — she was on camera with NO MAKE UP. CC: I know! I was so proud of her. CC-BFF 09 002 kfangurl: I was impressed by that too... though Uee also didn't wear makeup right? CC: I think so. Don't know why it made such an impression that Hyori didn't. kfangurl: She didn't go under the falls though... which I thought was a little odd since, up to that point, she didn't miss out on any of the stuff the team has done. Stephanie: I'd say if there were any place that you should pull your star card it was jumping into a freezing cold pool. Like, “Uh. No. Not gonna, can't make me.” kfangurl: HAHA! CC: I was expecting her to have a go, too, since everyone else did. Stephanie: Well, I think jumping in the pool really was like a BFF team-building exercise, and she's not officially a friend. CC: I did think it was odd, but thought it was all about the BFF team, too. KFG-BFF E9 068 kfangurl: That's how I rationalized it too, though I would've given her serious points if she'd done it. CC: Yep, there would've been a clear winner then. As it is, she's a contender, based on it being her last episode. Stephanie: I think even without the dive, she's pretty clear above everyone else. CC: And when she told Ho-dong it was the last time, I felt so sad. Stephanie: Cherry and I were talking about that — we started out really not liking Hyori and, in the course of these episodes, have gotten to really like her. That's skills. KFG-BFF E9 016 kfangurl: I liked how she kept hugging Ho-dong and how Ho-dong kept looking distressed by it. CC: Yes, she showed that she could be sweet to him too, not just bicker. Although, you saw how worried Ho Dong was when she was sweet. kfangurl: Yes, she doesn't seem malicious at all. She always comes across as just playing, but playing hard. She's no softie, that Hyori. Stephanie: So — I think in honor of her last episode we should totally give it to her. She earned it. Otherwise, I'm just going to vote Hyun-joong again — don't make me do it! kfangurl: Yes, I'll vote Hyori. She's one kickass gal. CC: lol, what a threat, Steph. OK, you got me. I'll vote for Hyori!

Favorite Quote

kfangurl: My favorite quote happens when the team members all try to persuade Ho-dong to sleep inside. Hyori, barely concealing a cheeky grin, pipes up to Ho-dong’s embarrassment:

“Oppa, want me to sleep next to you?” AND, she proceeds to demonstrate, too. Snicker.

Stephanie: I snorted when Hyun-joong says:

“Do you want to trade kimchi for Si-yoon’s autograph?” I just think it’s so funny he offers up Si-yoon instead of himself.

Cherry Cordial: While guessing Uee’s Up words, Si-yoon says, “You are really pretty.” Then Hyori says to him:

Hyori [flirtatiously]: You look really pretty saying that. Ho-dong [to Hyori]: You are pathetic. Hyori [pouting]: I don’t get to see handsome men these days.

Hyori, for the record, I completely agree with you!

Favorite Screenshot

kfangurl: I couldn’t get over this cute moment, where Si-yoon pulls Hyun-joong to him in an embrace. Giggle. And, SQUEE!!! KFG-BFF E9 001 Stephanie: Seriously guys. How could I choose anything other than Si-yoon hugging Hyun-joong. Wait. What? kfangurl already snagged that one?? G-dang it! Fine. Second choice? KFG-BFF E9 061 For the obvious fan-girl moment. Cherry Cordial: With my new appreciation for Hyori, mine has to be her reverse psychology when she offers to sleep next to Ho-dong if he insists on sleeping outside. KFG-BFF E9 054 Kinda sweet in her unique, Hyori way. Question: Who would have been WAY more excited to find two stars on your doorstep?


And Now for Our Goodbyes
