The pair battled Heo Kyung Hwan and Choi Song Hyun for the prize.
The final answer that Eunhyuk and Yesung answered correctly was the question that asked, “Why is seaweed called ‘kim’?“, which would award them with 2 million KRW (approximately $1,800 USD) in addition to their previous accumulated earnings. The choices were ‘because it’s long‘, ‘because the person who harvested seaweed had the last name of kim‘, ‘because it’s as precious as gold‘, and ‘because it’s from Gyeongnam Kimhae‘.
Yesung reasoned, “When you start a business, you input your name or your initials, so I think #2 is the correct answer.” His reasoning was correct, and the answer brought them up to 5.9 million KRW ($5,300 USD). However, they failed to double the amount for the following question in the next round, but they were still able to take home the 5.9 million KRW.
Congratulations to Eunhyuk and Yesung!
