tvN’s “Youth Over Flowers” WINNER special aired its final episode on November 28.
After the finale aired, WINNER members Lee Seung Hoon, Song Mino, and Kang Seung Yoon took to Instagram to post their thoughts.
Song Mino posted a photo of the sky and wrote, “Thank you to all of the ‘Youth Over Flowers’ staff who gifted us with valuable memories. And next week we’re off to ‘Kang’s Kitchen!'”
Kang Seung Yoon uploaded a black-and-white photo of his cell phone during a V Live broadcast and wrote, “I want to say thank you to everyone who watched ‘Youth Over Flowers’ WINNER special, the staff who gifted us happy memories, our team WINNER family, and Song ‘Finger.’ I was happy while traveling and watching the show!!” He then added the hashtags, “There are still many scenes that didn’t air,” “I heard you should watch all of ‘Kang’s Kitchen,'” “‘Youth Over Flowers’ WINNER Special,” and “Fine.”
Lee Seung Hoon posted a photo of him on a bike looking at the blue sky and shared his thoughts in a long post.
He said, “Honestly, the time we spent traveling was a really meaningful time for us. I liked that we could show you our true selves while traveling. In the past, even though it was a reality [program], I would be stiff or be hyperaware that we were filming. But while filming ‘Youth Over Flowers,’ I didn’t have those concerns and felt comfortable during a fun week. Thank you to the staff for taking good care of us as if you had known us for awhile like a member of ‘New Journey to the West.’ I am really jealous of Mino who can continue to be with these great people. Thank you to Mino who created this amazing opportunity with his ‘Song Finger’ and although this did not air much, thank you to Seung Yoon for checking the navigation and talking to me so I wouldn’t get sleepy while driving long distances. Jin Woo, who became teary-eyed after every interview, thank you for giving the members strength and leading us with good energy. This became [as long] as if I was giving an acceptance speech for a solo award while writing but anyways!!! Thank you so much to everyone who watched and supported ‘Youth Over Flowers’ WINNER special. Please look forward to WINNER’s youth.”
사실 방송보다 여행하는 과정이 우리에겐 굉장히 의미있는 시간 이였습니다. 여행내내 솔직한 모습을 편하게 보여드릴수있어서 좋았던것같아요. 그전에는 아무리 리얼리티라도 다소 경직되어 있거나 아무래도 방송을 의식하기마련인데 이번 꽃청춘은 그런 걱정과 불편함없이 맘편히 즐기다온 일주일 이였습니다. 제작진 형님누나들 오래봐온 신서유기 멤버처럼 편하게 잘챙겨주셔서 감사했습니다. 이렇게좋은분들과 계속해서 연을 이어갈수있는 미노가 정말부럽네요^~^ 송가락으로 우리들에게 이런멋진 기회를 만들어준 마이노 너무 고맙구 방송에는 잘안나왔지만 장시간의 운전으로 많이힘들었는데 옆에서 잠들지않고 계속 네비 확인해주고 조잘거려준 강총무 너무고맙고 인터뷰만하고 나왔다하면 눈물이 그렁그렁맺혀있던 진우형 멤버들에게 계속해서 빠이팅을 불어넣어 주고 좋은 에너지로 이끌고가는 진우형 고마워 쓰다보니까 시상식에서 혼자 상탄것처럼 그렇게 됐지만^_^ 아무튼!!! 꽃청춘 시청해주시고 응원해주신여러분들 너무너무 감사합니다. 앞으로 남은 위너의 청춘도 많이 기대해주세요+_+ #신서유기외전#꽃보다청춘#위너
Kim Jin Woo was the last one and shared an amusing picture taken during their first day in Australia, still in prison outfits.
He expressed, “A result from ‘New Journey to the West,’ ‘Youth Over Flowers’ WINNer special was so fun and made me really happy. Thank you for creating such great memories for us, and while I’m not used to this kind of talk, thank you to our ‘New Journey to the West’ hyungs and noonas. You’ve worked really hard and I am really grateful. Most of all, I am thankful to our Song Mino’s ‘Song Finger’ and his endurance. To us four [WINNER members], let’s love each other forever. I love you.”
