The intimidating end-of-the-month performance test that Team A and B have been putting their blood, sweat, and tears into finally arrived on the latest episode of Mnet‘s ‘WIN‘ (‘Who Is Next: WIN‘)
On this episode, both teams were feeling the heat of pressure. Team B’s Kim Jin Hwan, who is also the oldest member of the group, seemed to be feeling down from everything that was going on. To cheer him up, the boys put him under a hidden camera prank with Kim Dong Hyuk and Goo Jun Hee pretending to have a serious fight and taking it outside where Kim Dong Hyuk faked his tears. Kim Jin Hwan then snapped out of his own emotional slump and tried his best to resolve the fight only to find out it was all one big prank. He then thanked his members for cheering him up.
Meanwhile, Team A had problems of their own with Kang Seung Yoon having to wear a neck brace due to the wear on his physical condition from promoting as a solo artist and practicing with his team simultaneously. Lee Seung Hoon also received acupuncture for pain in his hip that he has been suffering from for a while now. Team A lost to Team B in their previous performance test, so with their improved teamwork, it was time for them to show their growth as a team and win.
But in the end, it was Team B who won against Team A once again with 15:10 votes. Yang Hyun Suk commented that Team A needs to have fun during their performance so people who watch them can have fun as well. The winning Team B were then sent on a vacation at the beach as a reward. Yang Hyun Suk still wanted to lift Team A’s spirits and sent them a surprise feast with a banner that read, “Gain strength,” on the wall of their dorm.
Yang Hyun Suk also announced that both teams will head to the JYP Entertainment headquarters for a battle against the JYPE trainees, so make sure to check back in for next week’s exciting episode!
