GOT4 go looking for seven pieces of luck scattered across Thailand... so like missions, yay.

It's interesting seeing a less known dynamic for GOT7 and it brings out new sides in the members (like Jinyoung being quite talkative and bantery and taking the lead). The first episode is pretty chill but I think GOT4 will and do prove that they can be funny too (ofc with the infamous slyness and betrayal already in the first ep, it's GOT7 variety after all). Ah, I think this will be pretty interesting... l
ol why am I writing such a promo.
For now we get to see them settle in, and experience Thailand in both scenery and also yummy food (which just leaves OP salivating, dammit).

OP, Jinyoung is looking for a massage a day.

I love it! There is still so much laughter and teasing, and they seem at ease with each other. Jinyoung is SO bossy, and is such a younger brother, crossed with an old man. And Mark barely talks still (and everyone casually ignores him when he does speak, bc he's talking? (and he's not that funny)). I love it when they tease Youngjae. I love Youngjae, he is so cute (his earring does not match, I'm classifying it as a kink sign). And I liked that they didn't pretend to buy into the host being multiple people. And BamBam really is such an easy going man, even though he's a really hard worker.

WTF with the host telling Jinyoung to show less skin. We need a new host. But hello Mark's full arms (and a hint at more!) (BamBam's lips look like they hurt.)

And we got to peep on their apartments! And it seems Mark is out of the dorms, I didn't know that. Jinyoung too? Are they all?

I believe all of them have moved out of the dorms into their own apartments (iirc Bambam(+ 4 cats)/Mark/Jackson have own apartments, Yugyeom lives together with some hyung he knows(?) Jaebum(+ 5 cats) with his parents, Youngjae (+ dog) with his brother) except Jinyoung (smart man, let the company pay the rent)

i just want to eat all the food

For real, the food looked so good
yuujinchous 18th-Jan-2019 12:01 pm (UTC)
same but also, i always wonder how people in sk (and thailand apparently) who don't eat pork get by lmao i'm gonna sound dumb as hell but while all that food they eat on shows looks really really good i'm always like... i can't eat this! i don't eat pork and i'm not sure how much variety there is in terms of food with chicken (which i love) because i only ever see idols eat fried chicken or w/e which is good but not something i could eat forever lmao dflhgkhlggflh i guess i just gotta go one day and see for myself but this is honestly a real worry of mine lmaooo

as far as introductory episodes go, this was really fun! as expected of got7. who would have ever thought that we'd get to see someone say that jinyoung talks too much :') but this is a very interesting dynamic that i don't think we see all that often among them and it's really nice that jinyoung takes the lead and is more open to fooling around than he would be if all of them were together. and i was a little suprised at jinyoung saying that he kinda believes in that sort of stuff, about having bad luck if you (don't) do something :o i mean i do too but i didn't think he would be that type of person kjlshkshg

mark not knowing korean comedians is such a mood. that guy seems pretty well known (i for one don't really know him either) and going by the first episode, he looks pretty likeable! compared to other "comedians" out there lmao i love his different costumes and how smoothly he goes along with got7's humour and adapts to them

2young are definitely a highlight of this episode! jinyoung, well... he just keeps ruining me on so many levels so nothing new there i guess! as for youngjae, i absolutely love seeing him so clever and sly, i LIVE for it. he's had a lot of luck this episode but it seems like it's all gonna turn around in episode two lmfao i can't wait!

jinyoung is attractive even when he's doing nothing but packing......................... i hate him

you're so right about the comedian, he was nice and did adapt to them well!

I am living for getting to see them so mixed up. I love all four, but I am so excited for this opportunity to have the quieter ones shine, especially Youngjae because I feel like he's been kind of quiet the last few varieties. (even if he is the sly fox master.) And I love that baby BamBam is the one they lean on.

They really do ignore Mark half the time, though. I have to say, as much as he's my bias, he is just not gifted in the talking.

Yesss, the comedian was gold. I really liked him - which is not always the case when it comes to korean comedians tbh.
lydzi 18th-Jan-2019 05:22 pm (UTC)
Omg, I'm thirty minutes in and 1- I adore Mark. 2- Bambam is a treasure. 3- THE FOOD THE FREAKIN FOOD 🤤🤤

My new kink is officially Jinyoung eating. Thank you very much.

BamBam is such a treasure. He would be the best science or kindergarten teacher ever.

gah, the food is really enticing. I haven't had Isan region food before so the dishes were something new to me! (the cockles got me salivating)

I like that the show has an emcee, in which the boys feel less pressured to lead. and he's funny too. can't wait to see more of the less focused pairings/friendships like YoungBam. looking good for a starting episode!

ugh the food looks so freaking good! groups need to have a solely food based reality show lol.

and i like that they're able to play a bit with the MC
