On January 22, veteran idol group Shinhwa made an appearance on the KBS music variety program “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook.”
During the show, Yoo Hee Yeol opened an advice segment where he would introduce a question from an “audience” member born in the new Year of the Rooster.
The “audience” member, whose nickname was “Dong Black Hole,” turned out to be Kim Dong Wan of Shinhwa! Yoo Hee Yeol commented to Shinhwa, “I had no idea one of your members was called ‘Black Hole.'”
The “question” that Kim Dong Wan was seeking advice for turned out to be on his love life, with Yoo Hee Yeol reading, “For 20 years, he has been trapped in a man cave and his love cells have died out.”
Meanwhile, Eric went on to self-diss their costumes for the performance as “dried seaweed.” “The silver parts are like sesame oil [spread on the seaweed] and the thing around our necks is definitely seaweed,” he said.
Perhaps as a result of his words, his members picked him as the most “affectionate member, saying, “He’s good at showing his affection. Especially through swearing,” and added, “He’s also very touchy-feely.”
