Lee Eunji then read Chaeyeon’s response to it.

 “Whenever I do it with you, I have to dance harder. Don’t be gentle and please continue to take good care of me.’ Did Chaeyeon write it herself?”

Regarding this, Lee Chaeyeon confessed:

“Whenever I do it with that friend, I feel like we are always competing with each other. I dance with the feeling that I’m never going to be taken away. My friend was slightly in front of me and I was in the back, and he danced so hard that his hair was shaking. I was forced into it without realizing it. I even worked harder than I did on stage.”

Just then, Chaeyeon revealed her shocking connection with Dino.

“The funny thing is, when I looked at Dino’s profile, we have the same origin and we come from the same Lee clan. We have the same ancestors. I was surprised.”

 Lee Eunji then added:

“You both must have gotten your dance DNA (from your ancestors).”
