SSAK3 Shares Potential Future Plans After Promotions End On “How Do You Play?”
On the August 8 episode of MBC’s “How Do You Play?”, the SSAK3 members wrapped up their brief but bright promotions.
During the show, Yoo Jae Suk asked Lee Hyori about “Refund Expedition,” the dream girl group that she had named in an earlier episode. He said, “I heard you have a meeting tomorrow” and she said, “We’re just having a meal together.”
The members also talked about Koyote receiving one of the songs that SSAK3 had considered for their debut. SSAK3 said, “We thought of Koyote when we heard it, so we’re glad [it went to them].” Yoo Jae Suk asked Lee Hyori if Lee Sang Soon, who composed SSAK3’s debut track “Beach Again,” was getting a lot of requests to make songs, but she said, “Not really. He thinks that all his luck was spent on this one song. He’s easily satisfied.”
Lee Hyori expressed regret at their last music show performance and said, “We’re nominated for first place on ‘Music Core,’ so shouldn’t we go on again?” Yoo Jae Suk said, “I’m not a singer,” and she retorted, “So have you been faking until now? You have no sincerity.” But Yoo Jae Suk countered, “BLACKPINK was nominated for first place last time, but they weren’t there. We’re all busy.”
The SSAK3 members also reminisced about their twenties. Yoo Jae Suk said, “I had no money back then.” Lee Hyori, who was part of the hit girl group Fin.K.L., said, “I had money but I had no time.” Rain said, “I had no friends.” Lee Hyori agreed and said, “Top stars don’t really have a lot of friends.”
SSAK3 also participated in a self-produced “Weekly Idol” segment hosted by Kwanghee (who hosts the real “Weekly Idol”). The members teased their host by not listening to his instructions but impressed everyone by managing to do a sped-up version of their choreography and the relay dance.
The members also did the “aegyo song,” and Rain reinterpreted the lyrics to, “You’re so pretty. But I’m married and I have two daughters.” Nonplussed, Lee Hyori said, “This sounds like an affair song now.” After Yoo Jae Suk’s version, Lee Hyori quipped, “We said that we wouldn’t be obvious about the fact that we’re married, but it’s so obvious. Our group image has taken a major hit.”
Yoo Jae Suk said, “I texted Sang Soon about making us a winter song.” Lee Hyori then shocked everyone by saying, “I have plans to get pregnant. If we don’t get a baby, then we can promote again in the winter. I’m taking traditional medicinal herbs right now.” Although completely taken aback, Yoo Jae Suk said, “If we can help, we’ll help.” Lee Hyori joked, “Send me a box of pregnancy tests as a farewell present.”
The episode ended with SSAK3 taking the win on a music show. The members held an encore stage with all the performers and celebrated the win together. Rain was chosen as the one to keep the trophy and said, “We could receive another one in about ten years.”
