Anyone familiar with the things that Korean idols (and most Asian-based singers in general) have to do when they put out a new project is to head to the chat shows. But James Corden is one of the only ones who brings in the silly element that makes the Korean shows so enjoyable and that’s the challenge that lets the different artists show their personality.

Putting different members behind a plexiglass screen and unexpectedly shooting it with apples from an air cannon, we got to see how the gentlemen react to surprise–even when they know it was coming.
