(G)I-DLE Sends Jun Hyun Moo A Coffee Truck After Misheard “DUMDi DUMDi” Lyrics Go Viral
On August 3, (G)I-DLE made a comeback with their new song “DUMDi DUMDi.”
Soon after, some listeners shared online that they thought the English line “Turn up my summer” was actually “Jun Hyun Moo sunmool” in Korean—”sunmool” means “gift.” Many people shared the clip and said they now couldn’t unhear it.
Jun Hyun Moo is a famous TV personality who currently hosts the Mnet show “TMI News,” among other programs.
