Shortly after Kang Daniel and TWICE’s Jihyo were confirmed to be dating, the rumor began spreading that TWICE’s Momo and Kim Heechul were also in a romantic relationship. Both SJ Label and JYP Entertainment firmly denied the rumors, saying the two are just close friends.
During the August 17 broadcast, Kang Ho Dong commented, “The most ‘hot topic’ person isn’t here yet,” referring to Kim Heechul. Min Kyung Hoon joked, “I think he might not be able to come in today.” Just then, Kim Heechul shocked everyone with his sudden and efferverscent entrance.
Lee Soo Geun, to tease Kim Heechul, said nonchalantly, “Oh, you came?” while not-so-subtly doing the choreography to TWICE’s “Cheer Up.”
Kang Ho Dong told Kim Heechul what Min Kyung Hoon had said and Min Kyung Hoon added, “Honestly, I was disappointed in Heechul.” He then jokingly grabbed Kim Heechul by the lapels and said, “How could you do this to me?”
This scenario was a continuation of the “plot twist” in Kim Heechul and Min Kyung Hoon’s music video, “Sweet Dream” (which also starred Momo).
Min Kyung Hoon and Kim Heechul quickly made up their fake fight and Kim Heechul said to him, “I like you best.” Min Kyung Hoon then put his hand over Kim Heechul’s heart and said, “You sure?”, making everyone crack up. In the end, Kim Heechul said, “If I ever do date someone, I’ll tell you first.”
The guests on this week’s episode were comedians Lee Yong Jin, Lee Jin Ho, and Hwang Je Sung.
