Jung Yonghwa is one of the guests on the February 4 episode of variety show “Radio Star,” as is Han Sung Ho of FNC Entertainment, which manages FTISLAND, CNBLUE, AOA, and other groups.
One topic that is discussed is Jung Yonghwa’s popularity. Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, one of the MCs of “Radio Star,” comments that “Jung Yonghwa is very popular amongst female celebrities. But it’s said that he’s turned down everyone who’s shown interest.”
Han Sung Ho, the CEO of Jung Yonghwa’s agency, explains why this is the case by stating “Jung Yonghwa manages himself very well,” hinting that the idol is choosing to focus solely on his career.
Kim Gu Ra, another MC, responds by teasing Jung Yonghwa, saying “Then why do you pick the dramas you pick?” Jung Yonghwa has most recently been in “Three Musketeers” and “Marry Him if You Dare,” which did not fare well in ratings.
Kim Gu Ra shares earlier in the program that he has been cast in director Bong Man Dae’s film, “Rice Cake Soup Train” (working title), a parody of the film “Snowpiercer.”
After teasing Jung Yonghwa, Kim Gu Ra asks him to do a movie together, saying, “Your dramas don’t do well, ratings-wise. How about doing ‘Rice Cake Soup Train’ with me? We haven’t cast Song Kang Ho’s role yet.”
Jung Yonghwa wittily replies to this back-handed love call by saying, “I have nothing left to lose.”
