Yang Yoseob will be appearing in the February 14 episode of KBS 2TV’s “1 vs. 100,” in which he competes against 100 people in a quiz to win 50 million won (approximately $41,700).
During the pre-recording, the MC asked the singer if he has ever experienced any inconveniences because of his characteristic small face. Yang Yoseob’s first complaint was, “Caps are [too] large, so it’s inconvenient.”
He then said, “After concerts, there are times when we take photos with fans, and I get pushed to the front. There was once when a fan holding my placard said, ‘I’m not going to take photos with Yoseob oppa.’ I was really hurt that time.” As expected, his reply caused quite a stir in the audience, since small faces are seen as a desirable attribute in Korea and a few other Asian countries.
The episode will be aired on February 14, 8:55 p.m. KST.
