Yang Yoseob Explains Why Fans Don’t Like Taking Photos With Him
Yang Yoseob will be appearing in the February 14 episode of KBS 2TV’s “1 vs. 100,” in which he competes against 100 people in a quiz to win 50 million won (approximately $41,700).
During the pre-recording, the MC asked the singer if he has ever experienced any inconveniences because of his characteristic small face. Yang Yoseob’s first complaint was, “Caps are [too] large, so it’s inconvenient.”
He then said, “After concerts, there are times when we take photos with fans, and I get pushed to the front. There was once when a fan holding my placard said, ‘I’m not going to take photos with Yoseob oppa.’ I was really hurt that time.” As expected, his reply caused quite a stir in the audience, since small faces are seen as a desirable attribute in Korea and a few other Asian countries.
The episode will be aired on February 14, 8:55 p.m. KST.
