Previously on back to the future, we got a glimpse back to A Pink’s pre debut days. We also had some random circus performances but lets not talk about that again. This week, in the final episode of A Pink’s Showtime, the members will be emptying their wallets and their tear glands as they exchange presents and gifts with each other.
Chapter 1 – The Art of Gifting
Today in A Pink Tower (actually CUBE HQ but we don’t care about anyone else right? /Eunji snigger), the members have all been asked to gather in separate rooms. The question of the week is whether the A Pink members have ever been moved to tears. The immediate answer to that appears to be…umm…not really. Well to be extremely honest, Nam Joo and Eunji does say that thinking about the other members makes them emotional on occasions but bawling their eyes out? Hasn’t happened.
Well then! In that case, lets change that! (Not sure why we want to move them to tears but just go along with it) Each of the members are asked to pick a random soul mate. They then have to get their soul mate a special something that is guaranteed to touch their hearts. Ha Young’s soul mate for today is her trusty room mate Naeun. Naeun, on the other hand, will be touching the heart of our dear leader Chorong. Leader Rong will pass down her leader-y gifts to Nam Joo. Nam Joo gets the toughest challenge, having to get something for Bomi (Previous viewers of A Pink News will know that Bomi has promised not to cry too much on TV). Bomi’s soul mate happens to be her close friend Eunji, which should make things easy for her. Finally, Eunji is tasked with taking care of their giant junior, Ha Young.
The members have known each other for over 4 years so this should be easy right? If anyone tells me that picking out gifts are easy, I will slap them over the head with some grade B salmon for being either a lying weasel or just thoughtless. Thankfully, I won’t be slapping A Pink heads with some priceless salmon since they all struggle to think of something to get, Eunji expressing her pains on the piano. Naeun, on the other hand, tears up just thinking about Chorong. (Too early!). So what is Chorong doing at this time? She has also started crying while trying to record a message to Nam Joo. At this rate, we’re going to have a flooding issue in A Pink Towers before the end of this episode.
No point sitting around just thinking about it, time to get your feet sweaty and give their wallets a bit of an exercise. The members all head out to various places to buy some gifts. The members continue to pour over what each of their soul mates would like. Eunji, in particular, seems to be deep in thought, busily searching for stuff on her phone. After some thought, Eunji starts to talk about how Ha Young craves affection and loves being around people. Eunji thinks it might be because she lived away from her family at an early age and so Eunji wants to be like a mother for our little junior.
Nam Joo is also raking her brains, she knows how hard it is to make Bomi cry. She decides to get out the nuclear weapon of the gift world, a hand written letter. Nam Joo says she loves writing and that Bomi loves reading great writing/quotes, so this is hopefully going to be a sure fire way to get those tear glands chugging along. The other members are also busy picking out their gifts (Making sure to check the price as well). How will their soul mates respond to their gifts?
