In a portion when Bo Gum was asked to choose three lucky fans to meet him up close, Bo Gum asked everyone to be quiet so that the fans would get to hear the seat number being picked. 

During the meet-and-greet, Bo Gum was also asked to do scenes from his latest show Encounter together with the “blessedt” fans. As they did their acts, Bo Gum showed his being a gentleman as he shook their hands, talked with them, and hugged them after each scene.
