EXO’s Chanyeol Apologizes for Flower Bouquet Mix-Up with BEAST and Lee Yoo Bi on “Inkigayo”
On the November 9 broadcast of SBS’ “Inkigayo,” BEAST won first place with their song “12:30.” Following the announcement of BEAST’s name as this week’s number one artist, the MCs congratulated them with a trophy.
Then, EXO’s Chanyeol came up from behind to hand a flower bouquet to BEAST member Hyunseung as well. However, after seeing this, MC Suho turned to Chanyeol to let him know that something was wrong, and Chanyeol could be seen with a surprised expression on his face, saying “That’s not it?” Chanyeol was taken aback by his mistake and the BEAST members could also be seen caught by surprise by the exchange between Chanyeol and Suho, creating a brief moment of silence before Hyunseung spoke up during his group’s acceptance speech.
Shortly after, it was revealed who the flower bouquet was originally supposed to go to—actress Lee Yoo Bi, as it was her last day as an MC for the music program.
After realizing the mix-up, Hyunseung returned the bouquet to Chanyeol, who then handed it to Lee Yoo Bi, resolving the situation.
Following the end of “Inkigayo,” Chanyeol took to his Instagram to explain and apologize for the mix-up: “Everyone, I have made a mistake in delivering the flower bouquet to the wrong person during the live broadcast of ‘Inkigayo’ ㅠㅠ I went up at the last minute so I’m really sorry for my mistake. Congratulations to BEAST seniors for first place and thanks to Lee Yoo Bi for her hard work until now. I want to wish good luck to drama ‘Pinocchio’!! I’m sorry.”
