*Happy sigh* The things that our dear celebrities do for our viewing enjoyment. 😉
I wasn’t planning on blogging again about Cool Kiz on the Block: Swimming after my initial post (here), but KBS World TV released Ep. 121 and well…I just couldn’t resist sharing it with you. Yes, call me incorrigible. lol I suppose this variety show will become a regular corner, at least until the swimming segment ends. 🙂

Musings: As the team members get to know each other better, their growing closeness becomes more apparent. After all, who would have ever imagined that Lee Jae Yoon would motion with his finger for Kang Ho Dong to show off his “legendary” strength as one of the nation’s most beloved athletes? For that matter, who would have ever imagined that Kang Ho Dong’s voice would go up an octave as he shrieked for Jae Yoon to assist with the bar? Or Jae Yoon’s when it was his turn? *chuckles*
Then there’s the joking and ribbing of how millions of married women all over Korea are cheering whenever “The Real Body” appears on the screen…sans top. Needless to say, the editing of the footage is quite skillfully done to underscore the humor. And Jung Hyung Don‘s random yet hilarious question to Jae Yoon as to why he’s still wearing his shirt just cracks me up whenever I think about the scene. Seriously, between Hyung Don and Ho Dong, the variety show world has at its disposal an invincible duo that’s capable of generating laughter from anything.
*happy sigh* Yes, these celebrities/athletes sure know how to entertain us. 🙂
What I most appreciate about this episode, though, aside from all the fun, is the showcasing of “fin swimming.” Personally, I had never heard of this aspect of the swimming world and seeing Jang Ye Sol, the reigning world-record holder, demonstrate her sport and compete with the team was quite a feast for the eyes. Talk about speed and fluidity of motion! *momentarily speechless*
Anyhow, I hope some of you get to watch this episode if you haven’t already. You won’t be disappointed. 😀
