KARA’s Youngji proved herself as the queen of iron bar.
The February 20 broadcast of KBS 2TV’s Lunar New Year special program “Game of Thrones” featured a whole slew of celebrities. Divided up into two teams led by Lee Hwi Jae and Kim Joon Ho, respectively, team “Superman Returns” and team “1 Night 2 Days” battled it out in a number of games for the coveted throne.
Representing team “1 Night 2 Days,” Youngji, SISTAR’s Bora, Lady Jane, and Soobin took on f(x)’s Amber, G.NA, AOA’s Jimin, and Kim Sook in an iron bar challenge. Whoever is able to hang onto the bar the longest would win.
However, the game was going on a lot longer than planned, so it was stopped halfway, and the rules were revised. Before, the girls were allowed to hang from the bar in any way they chose, but for the second round, they only used their arms. The remaining girls, G.NA, Soobin, Youngji, and Amber started a new round. G.NA and Soobin soon dropped off, leaving Youngji and Amber.
Although Amber is known to have great strength, and is nicknamed “G.I. Amber” for doing 42 push-ups in TV show “Real Men,” Youngji surprisingly came out the victor. She impressed viewers with her competitive spirit as she continued to hang onto the bar even after Amber dropped off.
