WayV's Xiaojun, Hendery, & Yangyang react after trying this difficult Korean food for the first time on 'My K-Star Family'

AKP STAFF

On the January 17 broadcast of Discovery Channel Korea's 'My K-Star Family', the Way-Bin family members Yubin, WayV's Xiaojun, Hendery, and Yangyang continued to enjoy their siblings-vacation in the countryside. 

After a barbecue dinner of samgyupsal, Yubin brought a special treat that she wanted her little brothers to try out - fermented skate! A unique South Korean dish consisting of raw ocellate spot skate meat which has been fermented, the dish is well-known for being difficult, even for native Koreans. 

Yubin, a lover of fermented skate, warned her younger brothers that the meat should be eaten a certain way, especially for those trying it out for the first time. Yubin suggested that the boys wrap the skate in kimchi, with a piece of grilled samgyupsal stacked on top as well. 

However, declaring, "Original is the best," WayV members Hendery and Yangyang picked up a piece each and put it in their mouths right away! 

Immediately after the first few bites, both Hendery and Yangyang could not hide their troubled expressions. Later on, Hendery recalled, "I made a mistake. You really should not eat the fermented skate by itself." Yangyang said, "It tasted so weird. It tasted like sashimi seasoned with hair bleach."

Xiaojun, on the other hand, waited before putting the piece of meat in his mouth. Then, after two bites, he spit it out right away while Yubin was busy talking with the others, then acted like nothing happened. Meanwhile, not wanting to decline Yubin's treat, Hendery and Yangyang tried the fermented skate again as Yubin directed, along with kimchi and samgyupsal. But in the end, none of the WayV boys could get used to the powerful odor!

Watch Xiaojun, Hendery, and Yangyang's reactions for yourself in the clip from this week's 'My K-Star Family', above!

Next week, 'My K-Star Family' will be bidding viewers farewell with its last episode on January 24.

I think Surströmming is worse haha. They disobeyed Yubin and ate without kimchi and soju. Xiaojun spit everything out amusingly and pretended to eat it, Hendery was forced to go to the toilet.

Tbh, I love all the cast members and their chemistry but what really sells me is Yubin's interactions with WayV. I love how chaotic family. This show truly has the perfect cast. Everyone shines in their own way.

My favorite siblings are Xiaojun and Yubin, they felt very comfortable from the beginning and Xiaojun is able to look after her, even though he is a younger brother.

They're a really cute family. Xiaojun is really funny, maybe because he's the only one of them who doesn't already have an older sister, he's always trying to impress Yubin whereas Hendery and Yangyang just don't care. The dynamic is really entertaining.
