So, the challege from the Bulletproof team this week is to come up with no more than 3 idols you'd want to have with you if you were stranded on an island and had to survive. Hmm...this is actually fairly easy for me. Numbers 1 and 2 were a no brainer....and the third one I got down to three idols quickly. It was picking between those 3 that I had a problem doing.
First, I would want Turbo's Kim Jong Kook. He's strong, athletic, smart, and can cook. Seven years on Running Man has helped him develop unique skills that will come in handy on an island. Plus, he's a leader. He can help direct my younger guys. His nicknames of The Commander and Tiger were both given for good reason.
My second pick is 2PM's Taecyeon. He's very smart, gets along well with Jong Kook, knows how to cook, and is in great shape. A big advantage is his sense of humor, which one will need stranded on an island. He'd be up for any physical task but would always be thinking on how to do something quicker and easier. His experiences on both Running Man and Three Meals a Day will come in handy also, especially when it comes to finding food.
Now my third pick is more difficult. What am I missing? I am going to exclude CN Blue's Young Hwa because he's about the same age as Taecyeon. I need someone younger.....so my picks come down to BTOB's MinHyuk and BTS's Kookie. I did briefly consider idols from Monsta X, EXO, Astro, B.A.P., B1A4, and Got7. None of them really fit what I need though. Too many of the are screamers or afraid of things like bugs (that's why MinHyuk from CN Blue couldn't be considered).
Even though MinHyuk is faster and can jump better/higher than Kookie, his actual height is a slight disadvantage. Kookie probably has more physical strength though....and he has something MinHyuk has lost.
My third idol would be BTS's Jeon Jung Kook. Yes, he's the Golden Maknae, but that's not exactly why I picked him. I want Kookie for his naivety, enthusiasm, and willingness to learn. He doesn't seem to be afraid of much (besides girls), and from Bromance, he is always up for trying something new. He listens which is very important, since he doesn't have the experience of the other two. He's young, climbs well, and isn't afraid of failure. He's interacted with Tiger before, so he knows Tiger isn't someone to take lightly. Kookie would follow the directions of Tiger and Taecyeon and do it without complaining. From watching the BTS trip to N. Europe, Kookie has an eye for detail. Photographers usually do. He may be able to pick up on a few things the other two might miss.
Actually, with these three idols, I may have it pretty easy.
