Gyuri went up first, failing quite a bit with a 2 point shot, 1 point shot, and 5 point shot, which would probably be better than what I could do, but in comparison to Eunji"s 9 point shot, 9 point shot, and 8 point shot... good game.

MC Jun Hyun Moo teased Gyuri, "The camera director has been doing this for a long time, but it was his first time ever setting the camera"s zoom, then having to raise it up. He"s hoping that you would please hit the target."

However, in the second round, A Pink"s Na Eun took the attention away from Gyuri with a 0 point shot and 1 point shot. Seungyeon redeemed KARA with a perfect 10 point shot, then an impressive 9 point shot.

Nine Muses also agreed that the male idols seemed awkward around them as they said, "We heard that "Idol Star Olympics" was a meeting point [for many idols], but we don"t think we can agree at all. Male idol groups would greet us with a 90 degree bow and acted uncomfortably. We were probably the ones who appeared the most [in the games], but there was no "pink atmosphere.""
