On the August 17 episode of the hit SBS show, “Running Man,” the first generation idols got to engage in a friendly competition with their younger counterparts. In this episode, this generation’s top idols SHINee’s Taemin, SISTAR’s Soyu, and EXO’s Sehun and Kai appeared alongside first generation idols SechsKies’ Eun Ji Won, H.O.T’s Moon Hee Jun, g.o.d’s Danny Ahn, and NRG’s Chun Myung Hoon.
The older idols tried to intimidate the younger singers and gave them “friendly advice” as seniors in the industry. SechsKies’ Eun Ji Won, who arrived at the location wearing a brace on his injured knee, looked at SHINee’s Taemin and said, “I’m aging. My shoulders are also in pain.” He also told Taemin, “If you dance (hard) like that, you’ll also become like this,” somewhat implying to the young singer that he should be careful when dancing.
Moon Hee Jun of H.O.T, SM Entertainment’s first generation boy band that has gained tremendous popularity, followed Sechs Kies’ Eun Ji Won and told Taemin, “18 years later, you could also become this rounded,” making everyone laugh, including Taemin who fell to the floor in shock.
