Showing Tamagotchi, a handheld digital pet, Sojin said, “When this first hit the shelves, I really wanted to get one. (After buying it), I used to check and played with it during breaks.”

Yura said, “I used to have a lot of fun in the past with this.”

They also played Cat’s Cradle, a two-person string game, and agreed that the loser would buy snacks.

Sojin, who was confident of winning, ended up losing to Yura.

During the show titled “Yubin, Sunmi’s YOU&ME,” which aired at 10:30 p.m., Wonder Girls’ Yubin and Sunmi shared their makeup tips.

”The coral makeup I wore in the latest music video was liked by many female fans,” Yubin said, showing how to use the technique in the makeup room. “Because my skin is a little dark, I often use orange, which is bright and refreshing.”
