Shinhwa and SHINee Engage in a Fierce Game of Gonggi
The rivalry between the senior and junior idol groups continued on June 9’s broadcast of jTBC’s Shinhwa Broadcast.
After losing Eric, Shin Hye Sung and Lee Min Woo through a variety of games, the Orange Team ended up with only three members, while the Pearl Aqua Blue Team (Pearl Team) had a total of eight members.
The next round of games was gonggi (Korean jacks), where the player picks up a certain amount of pebbles for each round.
At the fifth round, the player must throw the five pebbles in the air and catch as many as he can with the back of his hand.
The player’s team gains ‘years’ depending on the amount of pebbles he is able to grab from throwing the pebbles off the back of his hand. If the player drops or touches the wrong pebbles, his turn is over.
With only three members remaining on the Orange Team and the punishment for losing being flicked in the forehead by Onew′s finger, Kim Dong Wan, Jun Jin, and Taemin began practicing, not caring about what the Pearl Team was doing.
Although it was a silly childhood game, all of the members on both teams took it very seriously, drawing laughter from viewers after seeing eleven grown men, bustling with muscles, sitting on the ground playing with pebbles.
In the end, the Pearl Team gained 22 years, which the Orange Team could not match up to.
Kim Dong Wan ended up getting flicked in the forehead by Onew and the Shinhwa member rolled on the ground, grasping his forehead in pain.
The competition between the Orange Team and Pearl Team will continue on June 16.
