Other than Jongho’s birthday, one more special reason for fans to be excited on October 12 — Ateez members making an appearance on the SBS music show, ‘The Show’. Yeosang is the current MC of the music show which broadcasts every Tuesday at 6 pm KST (5 am ET) and is joined by co-hosts, Kim Yohan from WEi and Jihan from Weeekly.

Early on October 12, SBS’ media representatives announced that member Yunho would join Ateez’s Yeosang as the special host for the broadcast. This marked another way for fans to witness their compatibility as members of the same group. Ateez who made their comeback with ‘Zero Fever: Part 3’ appeared on ‘The Show’ for the second part of their comeback this time with their second title track, ‘Eternal Sunshine’ after they last ended the ‘Deja Vu’ era on September 29.

‘The Show’ and the games

In order to engage fans and members of various groups, ‘The Show’ has introduced a new segment in their broadcasts where idols play certain games. The first is called ‘Sweet Ending Draw’, a new corner where idols will play a game that has now taken over the world post the success of the K-drama ‘Squid Game’. The famous ‘Dalgona Game’ will be played first. Another show segment is called, ‘Uncommon Engie’ where one MC talks to members of various groups to ask them about their ‘ending fairy’ move.

An "ending fairy" is a nickname given to the member/s of a group that is given close-up shots at the end of their performance. This has now been drawing a lot of attention as members try something unique with every new "ending fairy" gimmick. The broadcast of SBS’ ‘The Show’ included artists like AB6IX, Ateez, Cravity, NIK, Woodz, Golden Child, Mirae. Boys, Ciipher, N.Flying, Jo Yuri, Hot Issue, and more. The broadcast was telecast live on SBS MTV as well as SBS FiL channels. Performances were posted on SBS’ YouTube channel after the broadcast.

Fans manifest a win

October 12 marked a win for the boys as all this is aligned for the benefit of their beloved group, according to fan discussions on Twitter. The odds of Yunho becoming an MC with Yeosang on the birthday of Jongho as the group performed on stage was highly unlikely but now this has happened. As a result, fans wanted Ateez to win an award for ‘Eternal Sunshine’ too before the broadcast.

One fan said, “Im gonna cry a river if ateez doesn't win today. gonna cry a river again if they win. either ways im crying CUS WDYM YUNHO YEOSANG MC AND JONGHO THE BIRTHDAY BOY? universe is so kind to us today it better bring us a win too."
