On May 3, he uploaded to his Instagram account a picture of himself with the two other “Inkigayo” hosts, GOT7’s Jinyoung and BLACKPINK’s Jisoo, and wrote a long message that was both touching and funny.
오랜만에 <인기가요> 스페셜 MC를 봤다. 젊은 친구들 사이에서 굉장히 어색해하며 구석탱이에서 얌전히 있는 내게 말도 걸어주고 용기를 북돋아준 진영군과 지수양에게 참 감동했다?? 안그래보이지만 내가 은근 부끄럼쟁이에 낯을 많이 가린다?? 진영군은 웃음이 매력적인 신사였고, 지수양은 주변 사람들을 즐겁게 만드는 리액션 아~주 칭찬해?? 그런 맑은 소녀였다?? 다행히 젝스키스형들 컴백날이라 외롭진 않았다. '아프지 마요', '슬픈 노래' 로 관리를 정말 잘하신 멋쟁이형들이었다?? 우리 슈퍼주니어도 컴백할 때 젝스키스형들처럼 잘생기고 멋진 모습으로 나올 것이다?? 내 친누나가 젝스키스형들을 엄청 좋아했었는데 내 기억으론 형들 콘서트 '기도' 무대였나? 간주 때 썬그라스 쓴 댄서분이 멋있게 춤을 췄던 것 같다?? 그리고 아마 이재진형이 <Blink>의 'Betty' 를 불렀던 것 같다?? <SKT>의 'Blank' 선수 화이팅?? #아무말대잔치 #개소리는역시김희철이해야제맛
The caption reads, “It’s been a while since I was a special MC for ‘Inkigayo.’ I was touched by Jinyoung and Jisoo, who kept talking with me and encouraging me while I was standing in the corner feeling awkward among so many young people. I may not look like it, but I’m pretty shy.
“Jinyoung was a gentleman with a charming smile, and Jisoo reacted to everything in a way that makes the people around her happy. She was a really bright girl.
“Thankfully, SECHSKIES had their comeback so I wasn’t lonely. They looked great performing ‘Be Well’ and ‘Sad Song.’ When Super Junior makes a comeback, we’re going to be handsome and cool like SECHSKIES.
“My older sister was a huge fan of SECHSKIES, and if I remember correctly, the backup dancer from their concert performance of ‘Pray’? Was it? The one with the sunglasses danced really well in the instrumental part of the song. And I think Lee Jae Jin sang ‘Betty’ by Blink. Fighting, SKT’s Blank! #SayingWhatever #NonsenseSoundsBestWhenKimHeechulSaysIt”
His last sentence makes reference to a League of Legends gamer from the team SKT T1. Are you able to follow Kim Heechul’s train of thought?
