5. [+18,354, -1,309] Kwanghee hyung is funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
6. [+4,344, -362] It was sad seeing Kwanghee be overly careful in case he gets hate.. ㅠㅠ
7. [+4,415, -457] Not a fan but I’ve been watching him since his Olive show MC just because I’m a fan of cooking. I always thought he was a witty person, nothing more or less, but after seeing how much hate he was getting before this show, I was determined to support him. He did nothing wrong and the criticisms against him were so unwarranted. People were so mad all because the person they wanted didn’t get the job. It’s not right to take that out on him.
8. [+3,946, -346] I like that they took the show back to its classic style, it was really fun
9. [+3,701, -387] It was honestly fun! Don’t hate on him without seeing the episode first
10. [+3,593, -304] You can tell he was trying really hard to work.
