On November 28, MONSTA X’s Shownu appeared on MBC Every1’s “Video Star” and shared his experiences as Lee Hyori’s backup dancer back in the day.
In the past, Shownu was the backup dancer for Lee Hyori’s “Bad Girls” promotions, gaining attention in particular for the “kiss” performance.
On the show, he shared, “I stood on stage with Lee Hyori when I was working as a backup dancer. Whenever we finished a performance, she would treat us all to dinner.”
He added, “She paid for 50 tanning sessions in advance for her dancers and told us to go whenever he wanted” and revealed that she also gave them all pocket money after treating them to dinner. “Now I try to take care of my own dancers as well,” he said.
“Video Star” airs every Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. KST.
