Many variety shows have idols playing certain games with each other, often to win prizes. Some of these prizes could include a beef set, a massage chair, or even having their music video play at the end of the episode! Most of these games involve the idols working together, but some of them allow for some pretty…intimate moments. Here are 3 games that will make your fangirl or fanboy heart skip a beat.

1. The Pepero Game

Pepero is a Korean cookie stick with a round wafer stick coated in chocolate or another flavoring like strawberry or matcha. The sweet candy is used in this game by placing the Pepero stick in-between two mouths and getting as close to the center as possible. The center piece is then measured to see which pair made the smallest piece.

2. The Mouth to Mouth Game

In this game, an idol has to pick up a piece of paper with their mouth, pass it onto another player’s mouth, and go down the entire line. The goal is to get as many pieces of paper to the end before the time runs out; however, accidents happen, and the paper will sometimes fall off.

3. The Heart Flutter Game

In this game, a heart monitor is attached to someone. The game’s object is to increase the person’s heart rate. Doing this can be done in many ways, but when idols get touchy, do aegyo, and confess their feelings for one another, both the heart monitor-wearer and the fans watching can’t help but have their heart skip a beat.
