( Host : Yoo Jae Suk, Member : Yang Se Hyeong, Son Dam Bi, Jang Do yeon, Kang Ki Young, Jennie (Black Pink), Song Kang, Im Soo Hyang, Kim Sang Ho)
In this episode, Village Survival the Eight, performed the first episode in the village of Michuri, which is in the north of Gyeonggi Province. Another name for this Variety Show is 8-1000 미추리(Michuri) which means that there will be eight people looking for 1000 만원 (ten million won) in the village of Michuri.
The eight people did not know about the existence of the money. They were only told to go to the village, and they were ordered to choose one item provided by the Staff to be carried as a hint tool. On the day that was determined the eight people went to Michuri's village from their own home, carrying clothes in their suitcases because they would stay in the village.
Of the eight people who came first to the village were comedians Yang Se Hyeong, brother of Yang Se Chan (Running Man member). He passed the bridge with a small river flowing beneath it. The weather was very sunny, while carrying his suitcase he walked towards the opening location.
A staff member attaches a microphone to his shirt. He then began to talk about his childhood in the village of Ssari. When he came home from school he often picked chili from his neighbors to be mixed into noodles. A moment later another person came. He is a singer and actor Son Dam Bi.
Yang Se Hyeong told Son Dam Bi that they had met at her house. Son Dam Bi had forgotten about that, then Yang Se Hyeong tried to remind and refresh her memory again about their first meeting.
When they were busy talking, from the direction of the bridge a tall-bodied woman walked to the opening location. He is comedian Jang Do Yeon. Yang Se Hyeong came to greet her while helping to carry his bag. After that the three of them were engrossed in conversation. Son Dam Bi and Jang Do Yeon are close because they have been in the same program.
From the bridge another tall man walking toward them, it seems like he is carrying a lot of luggage. He is an actor Kang Ki Young, He greeted the three of them. They asked him why he brought a lot of luggage. Kang Ki Young said that he was carrying his camping equipment. He really didn't know nothing about the program. And he prepared the equipment needed for survival in outside.
I also thought the same when I heard the title village survival, but apparently the meaning of survival here is not too hardcore like having to spend the night in the wild. In this program they provided a comfortable home to stay for one night.
The next person to come is Jennie Black Pink, knowing that Jennie came Yang Se Hyung immediately ran to greet and help carry her luggage. Jennie greets some locals who happen to pass by on the bridge, then she greets Yang Se Hyung who runs to greet her.
Next a tall and handsome young actor came over the bridge to the opening location. He is Song Kang, Jang Do Yeon immediately runs to greet him. He imitated Yang Se Hyung who ran to greet Jennie.
A beautiful actress Im Soo Hyang becomes the next person to come to the opening location, then followed by veteran actor Kim Sang Ho they both bring luggage because they will stay in the village. They all then engage in conversation with each other
From a distance came someone wearing a set of green sport clothes. He is Yoo Jae Suk who will be acted as Michuri's village head as well as the host of the show.
Yoo Jae Suk said that he was dressed like that because he had arrived earlier in the village, and also he said while waiting for them to come he had been gardening wearing the clothes.
After introducing eight members of Michuri's survival village show. Yoo Jae Suk said that the place was isolated, he had asked permission from local residents to isolate the place. The goal will be explained later when they arrive at the house where they will stay.
Yoo Jae Suk told them not to bring food or snacks during the show, So he would search everyone's luggage to find food or snacks. In Im Soo Hyang's suitcase he found some snacks then confiscated it from her. Im Soo Hyang's facial expression doesn't seem sincere when she gives Yoo Jae Suk her snack's.
Next Yoo Jae Suk found a shinchan action figure when he searched Song Kang's luggage, actually it was Jennie who told Yoo Jae Suk about it, she found it when she saw Song Kang luggage with her sharp eye's.
Song Kang said that the toy was brought here to accompany him. Yoo Jae Suk looks like he's thinking about something, and when he checks Jennie's bag then finds a doll toy that Jennie brought too. Yoo Jae Suk mention about the trend of young people now, is it possible this toy that Song kang and Jennie bought today are famous right now.
Jennie said that the doll belonged to her dog, possibly she accidentally put it in while packing clothes last night. Then the video about Jennie's activity when packing clothes was rotated and indeed it turned out that in the video, it was recorded that her dog was accompanying Jennie.
Jennie then shows her real doll that she brought on purpose to accompany her. Well i think Jennie's dog are trying to tell her something, or maybe give her some hint (Ooops it's not a spoiler, don't worry)
Next Yoo Jae Suk searched Kim Sang Ho's suitcase and found a TV remote. They seemed to know the object. Yang Se Hyung said that the TV remote was one of eight items given by the staff team to them. Each of them must choose one of the eight objects.
After checking their luggage, Yoo Jae Suk then says he will take them all to a house. The house will be their place to stay.
To get to the house, they have to walk for a while from the opening location. In the middle of the road Jennie told Yang Se Hyung who was walking next to her. She said that she had never been to a village in South Korea. All his life he was always in Seoul and abroad so there was no time to go to the countryside.
Yang Se Hyung listened to Jennie's story carefully. At that time Yoo Jae Suk called him but he didn't hear it. Yoo Jae Suk is telling about the welcome statue of Michuri Village at that time. He told Yang Se Hyung why he walk next to Jennie. Yang Se Hyung, who had not heard Yoo Jae Suk's words before, said that it was Jennie who suddenly approached him, so they were busy chatting and not hearing Yoo Jae Suk words.
After the incident they continue to walk and soon they arrived at a house that was quite large and there was a small courtyard in the middle of the house. On the front wall of the house is attached a small symbol 8-1000 Michuri.
They all entered the house. A puppy is seen sitting in front of his cage, it seems like Seol Gi (puppy name) is guarding the house. After they watch the cute little puppy Seol Gi, then they lined up in the middle of the yard where Yoo Jae Suk seeming like he will announce something.
Yoo Jae Suk tells the location of their respective rooms, and the location of the kitchen where they will be stayed for two days and one night.
Yoo Jae Suk asked Jennie if this was her first experience going to a village. Jennie confirmed that this was indeed her first trip to a village in South Korea. Yang Se Hyung who was standing next to Jennie said that Jeenie had been living in Seoul and had always traveled abroad so she never went to rural areas.
Yoo Jae Suk who saw him standing next to Jennie scolded him for daring to stand next to Jennie. After that Yoo Jae Suk holds a VHS cassette in his hand. Then put it in the video player. He said the purpose of all of them brought here is inside this video and asked them to pay attention to the contents of the video.
In the video there is a scene like a news coverage, a team of reporters receives information about a mysterious village. They went to the location of the village, then asked the surrounding residents.
But they could only find one senior resident who wanted to share information about the village of Michuri. The local resident said that five years ago there were those who buried ten million won in the village, but until now the money had still not been found. The video coverage of the news ended.
The contents of the video made the eight people who watched it become enthusiastic and impatient to immediately find the treasure. When Yoo Jae Suk explains the meaning of Michuri's 8-1000 symbol, it makes them all go crazy for the money.
Yoo Jae Suk then explained that their goal was to find the money with an object (one of eight item) that had been given to them, which served as a tool for searching the existence of the money.
Jennie looked like she was aware of something, then she complained about the bread she had chosen. She said that what could she do with this bread. Maybe she was regret, from the many item on the table why he must chose the bread. That was very cute Jennie.
But Yoo Jae Suk said they could get another clue item by playing the game. He said that there will be two games that will be played by them later.
Yoo Jae Suk also said there was another way to get the money. that is by combining the hint we have with a hint from someone else. But they cannot steal items from other people, if found out they will be eliminated and must go home.
When Yoo Jae Suk tells them that they don't have to share the money with their agents. They look excited, especially Jennie according to Yoo Jae Suk who looks the most happy. Meanwhile Son Dam Bi seems silent.
He seemed to still not believe what he had just heard. Then there is Kim Sang Ho who casually asks when they will eat. Yoo Jae Suk tells them to be careful maybe this is Kim Sang Ho's strategy to divert attention and make other members off guard.
Kim Sang Ho the veteran actor reacted by making a laugh sound of a criminal and surprised the other members. Yoo Jae Suk then distributed eight bags to all of them, the bag had the logo of each member's name so that they would have no trouble recognizing their own bag.
Yoo Jae Suk said it was 11:30 am and had already entered lunch time. In Michuri Village there are no supermarkets so they have to find and collect their own food ingredient from the area around the village. Then they will cook the ingredient in this house.
Yoo Jae Suk as the host then divides them into three teams. The cabbage team consists of Son Dam Bi and Song Kang will go collect cabbage in Grandma's field. Jang Do Yeon and Kim Sang Ho will look for sweet potatoes. The Third Team consists of Yoo Jae Suk, Im Soo Hyang, Kang Ki Young, Jennie and Yang Se Hyung going to find fish in the river.
They all moved towards their respective locations. On the way to the field Jang Do Yeon and Kim Sang Ho are busy talking about various possibilities. Including how to find clues that were hidden in various places in the village.
On the way to the field, Jang Do Yeon did not forget to do a campaign about smoking carelessly could be count as criminal acts in South Korea, he did it when he found a pack of cigarettes on the sidewalk and put it inside her bag.
Meanwhile Son Dam Bi and Song Kang have arrived in the fields and picked up some cabbage, green onion, and radishes. They both don't seem to know much about the types of plants that grow in that field. But it was not a problem they managed to bring some types of plants back home.
At that time Yoo Jae Suk, Kang Ki Young, Jennie, Yang Se Hyung and Im Soo Hyang were wearing special pants used to enter the river to find fish there. The girls carry nets, while Kang Ki Young, Yang Se Hyung and Yoo Jae Suk are tasked with driving the fish towards the girls.
Jennie looks exhausted holding a fishing net, she almost falls into the water but Im Soo Hyang catches her. The men replace the girls holding fishing nets. When they are busy catching fish, Kim Sang Ho and Jang Do Yeon greet them from afar. But they did not hear it. Kim Sang Ho and Jang Do Yeon have managed to collect sweet potatoes from the fields, they are on their way home.
Kim Sang Ho accidentally saw a red stone on the edge of the river. Assisted by Jang Do Yeon they both managed to take the red stone.
Kim Sang Ho said something about the hammer, but the one who had the hammer at that time was Kang Ki Young. They watched him for a while, but because he had not found a way to break the red stone, they returned home.
At home he was greeted by Song Kang and Son Dam Bi who had gone home first. They began to wash all the food they collected.
Meanwhile on the river Jennie and others using various techniques to catch the fish, but they only managed to catch two very small fish. Because of exhaustion they all came out of the river and decided to return home.
Kang Ki Young accidentally finds a red stone, he then pretends not to see it and goes to get the hammer from his bag.He pretends to be returning to the river to look for something, then he returns to the location where he found the stone and breaks it. From afar they all saw what he was doing. Jennie, Yang Se Hyung and Im Soo Hyang look for red stones around the river and find it. Kang Ki Young felt that he was very stupid because he did it in front of them all.
Kang Ki Young managed to find an object after breaking the stone, the object was like an open and close button on the elevator, but only the open button was lit. They then returned home.
Meanwhile at home, Son Dam Bi and Jang Do Yeon try to light a fire on a wood stove. they tried cooking the food they had washed. They have tried a couple time but they still cannot light a fire on the wood stove. Yoo Jae Suk and the Fish team arrived, using only a newspaper as a fan, Yoo Jae Suk managed to light a fire on the wood stove.
At that time Kang Ki Young tried to teach Jennie to skin the fish, after seeing it for a few moments Jennie smoothly whispered to Yoo Jae Suk that Kang Ki Young seemed unable to do it. Jennie had permission to go to the toilet, in the kitchen she saw a toaster, Jennie suddenly remembered the three slices of bread she had gotten from the staff.
He managed to bake it, Yang Se Hyung and Kim Sang Ho had caught him while baking bread. But they did not succeed in finding hidden clues on the bread. In the meantime Jennie managed to find three letters H, O, T in the bread.
When they are busy cooking outside Yang Se Hyung finds something in the kitchen. there was a piece of paper stuck to the fridge that caught his attention. Kim Sang Ho caught him again while going to the kitchen, but he didn't know what Yang Se Hyung was doing. After feeling safe Yang Se Hyung then re-examined the paper and found a hidden word, the word was 'erase it'.
After various chaos that occurs when they tried to cooking the food. Like Kim Sang Ho who lied when he said he could make noodles, then Yang Se Hyun who made the ashes from the firewood stove fly into the food dough. Then Song Kang failed to make the dough. a complete compilation of groups that cannot cook.
They finally eat the food that Im Soo Hyang, Kim Sang Ho and Yoo Jae Suk made. Im Soo Hyang makes delicious Kimchi pancakes, while Kim Sang Ho fry the mildly charred mushrooms, then Yoo Jae Suk and the others make Sujebi. They eat heartily.
Next Yoo Jae Suk divides them into two teams to do a volleyball game in the yard. This Volleyball games are like beach volleyball where two people from each team will face each other, but to hit the volleyball they must use the tools available in the yard.
The first team Kang Ki Young Team consisted of Jennie, Im Soo Hyang, Song Kang and Kang Ki Young. The second team is Kim Sang Ho Team, the player are Son Dam Bi, Jang Do Yeon, Yang Se Hyung and Kim Sang Ho. It takes a long time for You Jae Suk to divide them into two teams.
On the first half, the girls will face each other. Jennie and Im Soo Hyang played very well. They managed to defeat Son Dam Bi and Jang Do Yeon from Kim Sang Ho's team with a final score of 6-1. But I think this is just a warming up games because nobody get the prize after winning this games.
There is a funny accident where Jang Do Yeon throws the ball too high so that the ball falls on the roof then bounces and hits Jennie. Jang Do Yeon in a hurry apologizes to Jennie because she has many fans.
Next is the actual game, whoever wins will get a prize one tool hint for every member of the winning team. The men who will now play first. Kang Ki Young and Song Kang versus Kim Sang Ho and Yang Se Hyung.
At the beginning of the game Song Kang made a bad serve, which made the opposing team get one point. But they managed to overcome the situation and turned the table to 4-1, all thanks to the carelessness of Yang Se Hyung and Kim Sang Ho.
After winning 4 points it's time for a girl to enter to replace one of the male players. Jennie become substitute for Song Kang, Jang Do Yeon replaces Kim Sang Ho. After the score reach 4-2 Jennie asked Yoo Jae Suk to switch places because their place was too narrow. Both teams change to a new positions.
Jang Do Yeon accidentally hits Yang Se Hyung's hand with a pan so the ball gets out of control and out. Jennie team won one point 5-2. Just one more point their team will win. But unfortunately that time Jennie asked to change players with Im Soo Hyang and Song Kang. Their substitute Im Soo Hyang and Song Kang played terrible. Which make Yang Se Hyung to become MVP and chased the point to 6-5, Kim Sang Ho's team became the winner. They have the right to get a hint tool.
They agreed to ask for a hammer. Then Kim Sang Ho, who at that time had took the hammer, entered his bedroom. In the shared bedroom of men there is a TV. He then took a tool in his bag. He held a TV remote, then he turned on the TV and managed to get a word from the TV in the form of words 살구 (Apricot).
Until now they have got four clues, three of which have been solved, that is a red stone from the river bank, jennie's bread and a word from the tv in the men's room.
The fourth unresolved clue is a piece of paper that is attached to the refrigerator, as well as four other clues that are not yet known. End of episode.
