The most recent episode of the MBC sitcom High Kick: The Short Legs Strike Back, aired on December 8, showed Kang Seung Yoon and Park Ha Sun in a new light. A really new light.

Kang took the loyalty bit literally and seriously, as he transformed into a loyal ‘dog boy’ for Yun Yu Sun, a ‘pet boy’ completely different from the role Jang Keun Suk took on for You’re My Pet.

Though Yun never thought too kindly of Seung Yoon, in this episode, Seung Yoon managed to turn Yu Sun’s heart around by caring for her.

Seung Yoon sniffed out medicine herbs for Yu Sun when she was out to collect them, and even apprehended a robber that tried to rob her home when she wasn’t there. The way he also didn’t hesitate in carrying Yu Sun to the hospital when she had collapsed from a stomachache was enough to melt Yu Sun’s heart.

So where does the dog bit come in? The weirdest and funniest bit of it all was the way Seung Yoon managed to do all this while acting like a dog. He sniffed his nose, bit the robber with his teeth, lolled his tongue when he ran and also caught Frisbees with his mouth.

While Seung Yoon got himself tangled in loyalty and (perhaps) love, Park Ha Sun let herself loose with an all new look.

Park took her normally calm style and roughed it up with a shocking new funky red reggae look, thanks to hairdresser′s mistake. But although she was at first taken aback at her change, her friend Park Ji Sun suggested she use the new look as an opportunity to relieve her stress. Park took up the offer, and they rushed to get clothes that would match their new hair and their new mindset.

The two emerged with a rocker look in thick smoky eye makeup, leopard-patterned pants and leather rider jackets, and ventured to a nightclub for the first time in their lives. At first they pushed themselves into a corner and moped, but soon they found themselves jumping onstage and dancing passionately.

Ha Sun danced to the music as if she was the queen of shuffle dance, and Ji Sun added to the fun by showing off some of her own moves.

Netizens took to the message boards after the broadcast to comment, “I’m looking forward to what Park Ha Sun will change into next time,” “It was fun to see Park Ji Sun and Park Ha Sun go rogue for a while” and “I’ve witnessed the birth of ‘Shuffling Ha Sun.’”
