On the October 18 broadcast of SBS‘s “Inkigayo,” Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon took first place over the other nominees, Lim Chang Jung and iKON.
When the first place winner was revealed, confetti began to fall, and it began to blow into Taeyeon’s face. While she was trying to deal with the confetti, the audience suddenly erupted into cheers. Turned out that Yook Sung Jae, who was next to her, had raised up his hand and put it over Taeyeon’s head to shield her from the confetti.
Yook Sungjae’s exemplary manners impressed fans of both him and Taeyeon, and their interaction quickly became the talk of many online communities.
