Baek Jong-won and Yoo Byung-jae, who received S.O.S. from farmers, visited Geumsan, Chungcheongnam-do, which accounts for more than 40 percent of the nation’s perilla leaf production.
As soon as they entered the perilla leaf farm, they began to help harvest perilla leaves at the request of farmers. Baek Jong-won and Yoo Byung-jae were surprised to hear that a bag of 30 perilla leaves cost 200 won. Harvesting perilla leaves was a laborious task that had to be done manually with one’s back down.
Moreover, I was shocked by farmers’ words that the better the day gets, the more prices plummet. They left the house vowing to take the lead in promoting consumption of perilla leaves. Baek Jong-won, who tasted the farmer’s sesame leaf dish, was impressed by the farmer, calling him Baek Jong-won of Geumsan Mountain. In particular, after eating a perilla leaf dish developed by a farmer himself, he responded, “I think I need to set up a factory?” which raises questions about the identity of the dish. Farmers’ sesame leaf dishes recognized by Baek Jong-won can be found on the air.
Prior to the full-fledged “saving sesame leaves,” a meeting between Nongvengers and Sung Si-kyung took place. Yang Se-hyung acknowledged Sung Si-kyung’s cooking skills, saying, “There is a good cook these days, but today is the last day.” Sung Si-kyung, who met Baek Jong-won in private and became close, expressed her expectation, saying, “It is my first time eating (Baek Jong-won) brother’s food today.” Baek Jong-won, who heard this, was rumored to have been nervous. This can be seen in Sung Si-kyung’s reaction broadcast when she first tasted Baek Jong-won’s food.

Kim Hee-chul, who was watching this, instigated a war of nerves to Baek Jong-won and Sung Si-kyung, saying, “You two are Yonsei University and Korea University.” Kim Hee-chul asked Baek Jong-won if it was “Yeongojeon or Ko Yeon-jeon,” and Baek smiled unknownly. In response, Sung Si-kyung said, “No wonder we didn’t get to know each other perfectly,” making the scene laugh.
