The chemistry between Gary and his son Ha Oh and singer Song Ga In were off the charts on this past weekend’s episode of The Return of Superman.
According to Nielsen Korea, episode 392 of KBS 2TV’s The Return of Superman, which aired on May 10, brought in ratings of 13.8 percent, putting it at number one for its time slot. On this particular episode of the popular reality-variety show, rapper and television personality Gary and his son Ha Oh were shown having the time of their lives with Ha Oh’s favorite singer, Song Ga In.
Ha Oh spent the morning bragging to the cameramen in his house that Ga In would be coming over that day. Ha Oh, who previously made everyone burst into laughter by suddenly calling out Ga In’s name while cheering on his dad, is an avid fan of the singer and regularly listens to her music. To prepare for Ga In’s visit, the father and son duo even made posters to welcome the trot star into their home.
Afterwards, Ha Oh and Gary were seen donning pink – Song Ga In’s fan club color – and rolling out a pink carpet for Ga In. However, when the moment finally came for Ha Oh to meet his idol, he suddenly became shy and hid behind his father. Ga In approached Ha Oh first and told him that she was a fan of his, after which Ha Oh slowly started to warm up to her. He then expressed his feelings for his beloved Ga In by presenting her with a mask, a letter he wrote with Gary, and kimchi that was sent by his grandfather.
Ga In further captured Ha Oh’s heart during the visit with her enthusiastic and animated reactions. Thanks to every little action and comment from Ha Oh being met with awe and excitement from Ga In, Ha Oh had a permanent smile on his face. Watching Ha Oh laugh non-stop, even when the duo were just drawing pictures together, undoubtedly warmed the hearts of viewers.
Gary, Ha Oh, and Ga In’s phenomenal chemistry continued on during the “dinner show” they put on in the living room. Gary’s performance, in particular, caught the attention of viewers as it was the first time in three years that he had performed as Gary the rapper. The version of “The Girl Who Can’t Break Up, The Boy Who Can’t Leave” by the hip-hop legend Gary and the trot legend Song Ga In was a fresh twist on the original song, and the video of the performance is destined to stand the test of time.
The Return of Superman airs on Sundays at 9:15 p.m. (KST) on KBS 2TV.
