WANG ROU - SHOW
Welcome to this special episode of SHOW, starring very same family that is watching it - from their mobile phones in a green screen room. A family unit within the same space yet divided virtually, seperated in order to make connections with each other.
In this episode, Wang Rou fantasizes about protecting his family from internet trolls, fabricating paranoid threats from the outside in order to strengthen their unity.
When this strategy backfires, he requests that recording devices be around him at all times, to substitute the all-knowing God his mother believes in.
As part of this week's reality show challenge, mother performs poetry and impersonates family members of a Mongolian national assassinated in Malaysia.
Father reads the news.
Wang Rou is a character in an internet tv show.

If you are stressed from work, or you have a big meeting tomorrow, or you simply wanna nap like a baby, or you just wanna take a selfie with yourself lying down on a thigh, my thighs are always open for you! *Rent My Thigh is kindly sponsored by SAITO Cop.
