Recap: “A Pink’s Showtime” Ep 5 – I Can Hear Your Voice

Previously on Eunji and Minki’s Showtime, the ladies treated Minki to a day filled with food, questionable clothes and great scenery.  This week, the A Pink ladies will put their friendship to the test. Are the ladies as close to each other as they think they are or will their telepathy fall on deaf ears?

Dull And Important Disclaimer Stuff: Lordbordem is the official penguin of the Soompi team, and as such Lordbordem talks of himself in 3rd person. As a penguin, Lordbordem does not see the world in the same way that those dastardly human editors do. Lordbordem’s opinion definitely does NOT reflect the opinions of the rest of the human Soompi Team or Soompi itself. Seriously, don’t trust a penguin.

A thought and prayer for Ladies Code.

Before we begin, I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere condolences regarding Ladies’ Code’s EunB, who unfortunately passed away a few days ago. One of my colleagues, timmydee, expressed it better than I can so I will direct you to his remembrance post, Appreciation Post: A Farewell to EunB of Ladies’ Code. Also please spare a thought and prayer for RiSe and Sojung, both of whom we hope make a full recovery. Thank you for your support.

Chapter 1 – I Can Sort Of Hear Your Voice~

I don’t think I ever mentioned what one of my favorite songs was. It’s this really great song by Delispice called “Chau Chau.” Most people might not recognize the song from the title alone but the lyrics are pretty iconic. The song has been featured in numerous TV show dealing with telepathy due to its lyrics. The simple repetition of “I can hear your voice” just has this impact on you. So why am I mentioning this? That’s because this week’s A Pink Showtime is all about telepathy! (Yeah yeah, round-a-bout way of getting to the topic but pfft~ I needed an excuse to mention that song).

A Pink

This week’s question is simple enough. How well do the members know each other? I like to wager that they would all think they know each other quite well. But you can’t have a test without some dangling carrots and the carrots available today are very nice. The members will each say a wish and the staff will fulfill a wish every time the ladies pass a telepathy test. Simple enough? Nothing is ever as simple as it seems when it comes to A Pink.

They do a quick trial to see what their chances are. Favorite fruits? Watermelons, Apples, and Chorong’s “Just scream out whatever and hope it gets drowned out.” Hmm this might not be as easy as it seems. They do one more test. Say a number that comes to mind. Do we get the solidarity of thought we all want to see? Nope, it just confirms that everyone is a special little flower with their own thoughts. This is not going to be easy.

Anyway, what do the A Pink members want to wish for? It starts off simple enough. Eunji just wants a break. She hasn’t slept properly in 3 months and just wants a good night’s sleep. Naeun wants some shaved ice desserts (Or Bingsu for everyone who knows what that means). I guess it wouldn’t be A Pink if there wasn’t at least one food related wish.

Next is Bomi and she wants….puppies? Bomi talks about how they once raised two puppies before (On the show that barely anyone watched). However, Chorong correctly points out that it will be bad for the puppy as they would be too busy to take care of it properly. However a wish is a wish and they let her keep that wish.

Hayoung is next and she wants to go on a trip. She wants to go to the lovely leisure city of Chuncheon. Chorong, however, wants to know why Hayoung is so obsessed with Chuncheon. Has she hidden something cool there? Has she spotted something really tasty there? Why Chuncheon of all places? Well they have BBQ chicken over there according to Hayoung. Hayoung also talks about wanting to go to Ga Pyeong. Chorong tells her they’ve already been there to do the Bungee and asks if she wants to do that again.  Hayoung is quick to say no. Chorong then asks WHO she wants to go on a trip with. Hayoung hesitates for a bit before mentioning her members.  Of course our dear members are quick to notice this slight hitch and start to interrogate the flustered junior.

Secret trips aside, it’s now time for Chorong’s wish….*silence….Looks like she hasn’t thought of one. Bomi and Eunji try to help out(?) by singing “Mr Chu” and then get all giddy when they get to the “Hope your eternal love comes true” part. Jokes aside, Chorong’s actual wish is to purchase some much needed equipment for their practice room, from speakers, to a new toilet and some practice microphones. That’s going to be a very expensive wish if it comes true.

Last of all, it’s Namjoo‘s turn and she just wants to let her hair down and have some fun. She wants to scream her lungs out and let some stress out. Bomi then recommends going into the practice rooms and screaming in there. Namjoo, however, wants to go to karaoke.
