Omniscient Interfering View Episode 23 Recap
Broadcast: 6th of October 2018
We get to meet Hyun-tak’s manager Won-taek but things start on a sadder note. The manager informs that Hyung-tak had to sell his house because of financial issues caused by his parents. He also tells how Hyun-tak is a little depressed these days.
Hyung-tak is looking at the view of Han River, he looks a bit lonely. After playing a song on his Doraemon ukelele and cleaning his house with Doraemon robot duster, he gets ready to go for a trip. He is quite hyper in the car while listening to music, unlike what his manager described him being lonely and depressed.
Manager’s interview keeps popping up giving a contrasting view to what actually happening. Making the whole situation confusing and hilarious. Hyung-tak reaches his destination and walks through alleyways. While he is enjoying sweet music and blue sky he gets startled by a noise. It’s someone’s car alarm and he sees some by the door of the car.
He gets suspicious and decides to see the man but he turns out to be the owner of the car (alarm malfunctioned). Nosy guy Hyunk-tak greets and strike up conversations with random people while walking through alleys. He enters a restaurant and enjoys his meal while manager’s clip pops again. The manager is worried if Hyun-tak properly eats his meals.
He goes to a clearance shop and buys lots of toys for himself and some candies from another store. Outside the store, he meets few kids who happily asks him for his autograph although they are not sure who he is.
Quite different from other videos as his manager was not with him in any scene but it was still really funny. Hyung-taks’s manager says something about Hyung-tak in his interview but the Hyung-tak performs totally different in real life. The whole situation was like watching a comedy skit.
Back in the studio, Hyung-tak talks about Infinite Challenge and when he sang “Hair” (from Minions Movie, check it out below). He performs it again and brings out big laughter from everyone.
Now it’s Sung-kwang and Song manager’s turn. She receives a call for Sung-kwang and Gwang-bok (his dog) to appear together in a pilot show. She handles it quite professionally and everybody is happy to see her progress comparing to her earlier days. She reaches Sung-kwang who enters the van tiredly.
Back in the studio, he explains that the day before that (day in the video clip) he went to Karaoke with Byung-jae and Se-hyung. Byung-jae shows his excellent rapping skills while Se-chan sings a ballad song for the members. Hyun-moo also shows his nasal singing skills and gets laughed at.
Back to the clip, Sung-kwang is on his way to the baseball player Cho Dong Hwa’s retirement game. He is the special MC for the retirement ceremony. He receives some good advice from Song manager regarding what to say and what not. As they get closer to the stadium he gets nervous and car sick. His condition gets worse which surprises Song manager as she searches for a bathroom frantically.
He feels a little better after taking some medicine and they finally reach the stadium. Song manager sees her doppelganger Oh Jae-pil (baseball player). Dance time loads up on the stadium screen and camera captures both of them. Sung-kwang shows his dancing skills (or lack of them) while Song manager is hiding in embarrassment.
Stadium announcer approaches Sung-kwang and instructs him on how to proceed the ceremony. He is told that he can’t hold the script he have to memorize it, which makes him extra nervous. He starts to memories the script but he lacks the time. That’s it for this episode.
We will see how Sung-kwang performs in next episode also Byung-jae’s clip will be on next episode. Which I am really excited to see. Let me know on your thoughts on this episode.
