On the recent episode of MBC’s “Infinity Challenge,” aired on June 13, the cast members wrap up their “severe part-time” jobs from around the world and convene in Bangkok for some relaxation time.
The members, upon arriving in Thailand and meeting the producer, get angry, after having been deceived once again with false promises of a chill vacation. Park Myung Soo says, “If this wasn’t being broadcast, I’d be spraying curses left and right, but…”
But the producer reassures them that they are free to relax now, and tells the cast that he has a special Thai massage prepared: a peace offering. Of sorts. The members have no idea what they’re getting into.
Jung Joon Ha doesn’t seem to fully comprehend what is happening right away.
The trendy Thai “face slapping” massage, popular among Thai celebrities, is exactly what it sounds – and looks – like. The masseuse repeatedly applies slaps intended to both firm up skin and reduce wrinkles.
Although they are getting face massages, the “Infinity Challenge” members seem extremely distressed. Apparently getting slapped to the rhythm of Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry,” SHINee’s “Ring Ding Dong,” or T-ara‘s “Bo Peep Bo Peep” is of no comfort at all.
Haha is almost as surprised as Yoo Jae Suk:
