The episode was composed of two parts. In the first were segments recorded with Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, while the second was a “hearing” for Jo, in which previous panelists questioned Jo’s resolve and qualities as a potential member of the show.

After the episode, the show’s host and ringleader Yoo Jae-suk formally introduced Jo as the newest member.

Jo debuted in 2001 under the stage name Yangbaechu, the Korean word for cabbage. He hovered under the radar in the entertainment business until gaining popularity in the early 2010s.

According to Nielson Korea, Saturday’s episode achieved 11.7 percent viewership ratings.
