The adorable Song Triplets go camping for their second time on the upcoming episode of the hit variety show Superman is Back. Their trip begins to encounter some struggles from the beginning. Song Il Gook forgets to bring key cooking ingredients including fermented soybean paste and red pepper paste. Also, mosquitoes plague the twins as they try to fight them off with electronic insect zapping rackets.
Minguk pleads to his father, “Dad, let’s ride the car and escape.” This comment comes only an hour after the tent has been set up and is reminiscent of their last experience in which they left after only an hour. However, now that the triplets are older, they deliberately try to help their father save their camping trip. They brothers decide to take empty bowls to ask nearby campers for cooking ingredients.
