The first recording for upcoming SBS TV variety show ‘Barefoot Friends’ took place earlier this month, where the cast members of Kang Ho Dong, Yoon Jong Shin, Kim Bum Soo, Kim Hyun Joong, Yoon Si Yoon, Yoo Se Yun, Super Junior’s Eunhyuk, and After School’s UEE had an extraordinary first meeting with one another that was different from the norm.
The 8 cast members got to know each other first through a computer. Each member had to record an introductory video about themselves, before sending that video through email to two other members whom they were most curious about.
Reactions from the members after seeing the videos varied greatly, as the production team explained, “The cast members kept lavishing praise on how good looking that one member was after seeing his/her video. Another video however left the members in stitches, with jokes aplenty.”
In contrast to the other members who were able to type swiftly, Kang Ho Dong who was a self-professed computer illiterate was noticeably apprehensive as he typed his email letter by letter, and left everyone in joy just by looking at him.
