A lot of people have been participating in the ‘What Type of X’ challenge. Is there one that sticks out to you the most?

— Radio show DJ Kang Han Na

Jessi showed her loyalty by sharing that it was none other than the cast members of Running Man that stood out to her most!

Honestly for me, Jae Suk oppa did one with ‘Running Man’ members, So Min unnie and Se Chan oppa. The three of them filmed one and sent it to me. I was really touched.

Jessi, being Jessi then hilariously shared her honest reaction at watching the three Running Man members do her challenge.

They were not good at dancing.

The “What Type of X” singer confessed, however, that it didn’t matter if they were not blessed with the dancing gene, but that their hearts were enough for her.

Even though they weren’t good, it was their thought that counted. I was so grateful.

I texted him (Yoo Jae Suk) ‘oppa’ while crying. I said ‘come on!’ and he said ‘come on!’ I was seriously so touched by them.
