In this week’s episode, Eric Nam is travelling on Jeju Island with his virtual wife Solar of MAMAMOO. As he drives them in their rental car, he asks Solar to open up his backpack. “I went to Costa Rica,” he says. “And I brought you something small.” Eric Nam recently traveled to Costa Rica with Sam Kim and Song Yu Vin for the new variety show “The Friends.”
Solar pulls out a bag of pineapple chocolates that Eric Nam bought her on his trip, and then Eric Nam passes her a crumpled-up brown paper bag. “It’s really not much!” he says. “It just made me think of you.”
Solar pulls two painted wooden alphabet blocks out of the wrapping, which are both in the shape of a Y. Since Solar’s real name is Kim Yong Sun and Eric Nam’s real name is Nam Yoon Do, he bought them both matching Y decorations. The two laugh at how quickly Solar guesses the meaning, and Solar says, “Let’s put them up at home! Thank you!”
Solar shares in her private interview, “I never even imagined it. It was so great. It felt like he had been thinking about me.”
“I’ve been going overseas a lot lately, and I’m always thinking to myself, ‘What would Solar want?’” explains Eric Nam. “I usually hate souvenirs, but now that there’s someone for me to buy them for, I’ve changed my mind about them.”
