“That shell looks like you!” says Gary with a laugh. He then yells, “The sea looks like you!”


Although the two of them work well together as they try to complete their missions, they later have to go up against one another in a competition.


In a race in the sand between Gary, Song Ji Hyo, Yoo Jae Suk, and Haha, both Gary and Song Ji Hyo get ahead of their opponents because the others are restricted by the footwear they have to put on halfway through.

The pair sprints towards the flag at the finish line, and it looks like Song Ji Hyo has a slight lead. But to everyone’s surprise, Gary dives for the flag, grabbing it and leaving Song Ji Hyo with only the cloud of sand he’s left in his wake.

As Gary celebrates his victory, Song Ji Hyo yells in frustration after him.
