Popular variety show The Game Caterers will be joining hands with TXT, SEVENTEEN, fromis_9, and more HYBE groups in their upcoming episode. On July 11, the show posted a teaser of 36 idols from HYBE enjoying an outdoor sports day filled with laughter, interactions, and dance.
The Game Caterers host Na PD is popular for organizing fun games, giving fun commentaries, and being strict about upholding the rules. They had previously collaborated with BTS and released multiple episodes with them. This time, they offer an almost full-label experience.
The groups participating in the show are SEVENTEEN, Minhyun and Baekho from the now-disbanded group NU’EST, Lee Hyun, fromis_9, TXT, ENHYPEN, and LE SSERAFIM.
The Game Caterers’ upcoming episode with TXT, SEVENTEEN, and other HYBE idols promises much-awaited interactions for fans
The Game Caterers has another exciting episode coming up in which they will be collaborating with Hybe Labels’ artists. HYBE includes multiple subsidiaries such as BIGHIT MUSIC, PLEDIS Entertainment, Source Music, BELIFT Lab, and KOZ Entertainment.
Fans of the idol groups managed by these companies will find the upcoming Na PD episode to be an excellent surprise. As per the episode promo released on July 11, the show will feature all members of TXT, ENHYPEN, LE SSERAFIM and fromis_9. The 13-member act SEVENTEEN will not be present in its entirety, with only Seungkwan, Jun, Joshua, Mingyu, Dino, Hoshi and The8 participating in the show. BIGHIT MUSIC veteran Lee Hyun and former NU’EST members Minhyun and Baekho will also feature in the HYBE family special episode.
The promo teaser shows all 36 idols bringing forth their competitive spirits. A few competitions that were teased include arm-wrestling, running, talent displays, and passionate cheering.
While Na PD mentioned that the episode is “just a picnic,” the captions added that it wasn’t ISAC, aka Idol Star Athletics Championship. That specific comment stunned fans as MBC announced the filming dates for ISAC at the same time. Many fans believed that the caption was a dig at the network channel.
The highlight of the teaser was the HYBE idols dancing to BTS' SUGA and PSY’s viral song, That That.
Fans excited for the HYBE family special episode
K-pop idol interactions are hard to come by in an industry notorious for scrutinizing every artist. However, it also means that when the idols finally get under one roof and play a variety of games together, the excitement of fans knows no limits.
The HYBE x The Game Caterers episode has fans expressing their joy and enthusiasm on Twitter. Even the smallest interactions between TXT, SEVENTEEN, fromis_9, LE SSERAFIM, ENHYPEN, Lee Hyun, and the former NU’EST members garnered supportive responses.
The Game Caterers’ HYBE special episode might be split into multiple episodes, like their specials with YG Family and BTS. It will release on July 15 at 10:30 pm KST.
