October 1’s episode of the romance variety show includes the new virtual couple’s first meeting. Bomi and Choi Tae Joon meet up for the first time while wearing helmets to disguise their identities, and then take a scooter ride to a cafe.
Bomi takes off her helmet first in the cafe, and Choi Tae Joon recognizes her. He says in his private interview about the moment, “I thought she was really pretty in real life.”
He then takes off his own helmet, and Bomi looks a bit confused and unsure when she sees his face. She says hello to him with a polite nod, and then asks hesitantly, “Ji Chang Wook?” Choi Tae Joon laughs as he says he’s not.
Bomi looks horrified at herself, and stands up to say to him, “I’m so sorry!”
Choi Tae Joon tells her it’s fine as he laughs, but Bomi still looks really embarrassed, so he mentions that Ji Chang Wook actually happens to come to the cafe a lot.
In her private interview, Bomi explains that she spent a lot of time looking online to try to figure out who her virtual husband would be by searching for celebrity friends of the cafe’s owner. “I was 200 percent sure it would be Ji Chang Wook,” she admits. “That’s why I asked him that right away. So I felt so apologetic.”
Choi Tae Joon admits in his interview, “I was a bit sad. It would have been great if she had recognized me right away, but I realized it was possible she wouldn’t know me.” He then finds the silver lining by saying, “All this person knows about me is what she sees of me today, so all I have to do is do a good job.”
