Yoo Jae-seok, Lee Je-hoon, and Lee Dong-hwi performed comical camouflage.

MBC's 'What Do You Do When You Play?', which aired on the 6th, was featured as an episode of 'Investigation Team Leader 2024' in which the main characters of MBC's new Friday-Saturday drama 'Investigation Team Leader 1958', Lee Je-hoon, Lee Dong-hwi, Choi Woo-sung, and Yoon Hyun-soo, appeared.

Today's broadcast of 'What Do You Do When You Play?' The viewership rating for households in the metropolitan area was 4.0%. The 2049 viewership rating, a key indicator that measures channel competitiveness and topicality, recorded 1.8%, ranking first among Saturday entertainment shows as well as in the same time slot. The best minute was the scene where Yoo Jae-seok, Lee Je-hoon, and Lee Dong-hwi call Joo Woo-jae and eavesdrop on Detective Team 2, and the highest viewership rating soared to 5.1%. The phone call between the two teams, where they acted and engaged in strange psychological warfare to deceive each other, caused laughter. (Based on Nielsen Korea metropolitan area)

Yoo Jae-seok, a member of Detective Team 1 at the Cultural Police Station, has been scouting Lee Je-hoon and Lee Dong-hwi, detectives with incredible skills. Park Jin-joo and Lee Mi-ju liked the appearance of Lee Je-hoon, a handsome and high-nosed investigator, saying, “I can’t help but laugh.” Lee Dong-hwi expressed his disappointment, saying, “It’s really different from when I just came out,” making people laugh. Lee Je-hoon took out a heart from his arms and fired it, making Park Jin-joo and Lee Mi-ju's hearts flutter, and Yoo Jae-seok said, "I'm a heart addict." Lee Dong-hwi also certified this by saying, “Even on set, if you cut, it’s a heart.”

Divided into detective team 1 (Yoo Jae-seok, Lee Je-hoon, Lee Dong-hwi) and team 2 (Haha, Joo Woo-jae, Park Jin-joo, Lee Yi-kyung, and Lee Mi-ju), they began an operation to hide the bag containing the reward in earnest. Team 1, who put their minds together to hide it in a place no one expected, ended up heading to Han River Park due to time constraints. Team 2 came up with ideas such as hiding the bag in a store, burying it in the ground, and hiding it in a claw machine, but due to the variable of the store being closed, they suffered three consecutive operation failures and hid the bag in a secret place.

Team 1, who arrived at the Han River, used camouflage to avoid being noticed by citizens. Yoo Jae-seok took off his glasses and said he would walk around with his bare face. Lee Dong-hwi added, “If anyone recognizes me, I’ll say I’m singer Tak Jae-hoon.” Yoo Jae-seok warned, "Don't say hello today," but his clever(?) camouflage was broken with a 3-second cut. The citizens greeted them warmly, and the three people greeted them politely as an automatic reflex. Lee Je-hoon, who had been holding back his heart, seemed to have lost control and moved around, shooting heart beams at the citizens he encountered. Citizens who heard rumors of Heart's Restaurant followed with cameras, and Lee Dong-hwi shouted, "Your mothers have joined the investigation team." Even while Yoo Jae-seok was worried about whether rumors would spread, Lee Je-hoon played an active role as a heart evangelist and made people laugh.

Team 1, who hid the bag under the sewer, watched Team 2's movements. Lee Je-hoon targeted Jin-ju Park and sent a text message asking, ‘Where are you?’ Park Jin-joo couldn't hide her excitement when she received Lee Je-hoon's text message, but Joo Woo-jae imitated Yoo Jae-seok by saying, "Would you like me to tell you who the person is texting me right now?", making everyone burst into laughter. Team 1, who was trying to move after observing Team 2's movements, was frustrated when they realized they had to calculate the parking lot too late. This is because when you use a card, your location is sent to the opposing team. Yoo Jae-seok, who unintentionally ended up working undercover, was in trouble, saying, “I can’t leave here because of the parking fee.”

At this time, clue photos arrived that allowed us to know each other's locations. Team 1 left the parking lot, saying, “Now let’s go to counterattack,” and headed toward Wangsimni, where Team 2 is believed to have been. Team 2 also went to the Han River to look for the bag that Team 1 had hidden. Joo Woo-jae said to Haha, "I will help you be under Haha," and expressed confidence that he would beat Yoo Jae-seok's first team. Haha conducted an olfactory investigation by sniffing out smells, and Joo Woo-jae showed his sincerity in the search by parodying the movie 'Buried Mystery' by tasting the soil of the Hangang Park.

Team 1, who visited Wangsimni Bowling Alley based on clues, wandered around looking for the place in the photo. Lee Dong-hwi was anxious because he thought it might be the bowling alley he had found, and narrowed down the investigation net with tips from citizens. In the end, thanks to Lee Dong-hwi's persistence in seeing the end of something, he was able to find the photo location where Haha was taken. Yoo Jae-seok was delighted and said, “This is exciting, isn’t it?”, and an investigation was predicted as both teams began searching for the bag in earnest.
