The Korean national women's curling team explain how they first started the sport on 'Infinity Challenge'

On the March 17 episode of 'Infinity Challenge', the Korean national women's curling team explained how they first got into the sport.


The team captured the hearts of millions through their amazing performances at the '2018 Pyeongchang Olympics' and won the silver medal. To celebrate the athletes and the sport itself, they came on 'Infinity Challenge' where they conversed and played with the members of the variety program.


During the interview session, they opened up on how they first started curling as many fans were curious about their relationships. One of their players, Kim Eun Jung started by saying, "When we were in high school, a curling facility was created in the Uiseong County. After finding out that there is curling team during gym class, I told my gym teacher I wanted to be on it. The teacher told me to bring a friend so I asked Yeong Mi if she wanted to do curling with me. Yeong Mi gladly accepted it."


Kim Kyeong Ae, another player on the team and a sister of Kim Yeong Mi, recalled how she coincidentally started as well, "Unnies' needed me to get something for them at one of their competitions. But when I went to the match, it looked so fun! The gym teacher then approached me and said, 'If you want to play as well, bring a friend.'" Hearing this, the cast members burst out into laughter and even joked, "Isn't this a bit like a pyramid scheme?"
