Patricia and Benzen are going to answer the question that says; if you will have an amnesia, what is the memory that you don’t want to forget? The daily winner said that it is when her father told her that he is going to support whatever she wants to do and accepts her for who she is.
On the other hand, the defending winner stated that she always wants to remember the love of her family because as a working student, she sometimes feels that she has an amnesia. After a deliberation, Benzen is now a semifinalist and will defend her crown tomorrow.
