February 9th marked the long-awaited return of SEVENTEEN‘s popular online variety show GOING SEVENTEEN, which fans have been greatly anticipating ever since the show went on its end-of-season hiatus late last year.
The concept of the first episode of the 2022 season is “How to Eat Rice the Perfect Way.” Jeonghan explains that there will be white rice prepared by the staff, and they will each be tasked with finding the best dish to eat alongside it.
While they are introducing the episode’s premise, though, Vernon is called away by the staff.
When he comes back, none of the members can stop themselves from laughing out loud.
What’s got them so giddy? Well, Vernon shows us by re-entering the frame with a large wooden sign reading beo-non (the Korean writing of Vernon) and a huge bag of rice on his shoulder.
He asks the members if they recall the Ver-PADDY (also beo-non) episode of GOING SEVENTEEN. The episode was filmed last year, and in it, the group went to a rice paddy and planted rice.
When the members say they do remember the experience, Vernon reveals the truth: this rice he’s carrying is the very rice they had planted months ago!
All the members are stunned to see the final results of all that hard work realized before their eyes.
