Boy group, WINNER (Song Minho, Kang Seungyoon, Kim Jinwoo, Lee Seunghoon) and broadcaster, Yoo Byung became the variety representatives from YG Entertainment for creating lots of laugher.
On August 12, WINNER and Yoo Byung Jae were featured in JTBC’s entertainment program, ‘Knowing Brothers‘. Particularly, Song Mino appeared like he was a ‘loser’ than the last time he made an appearance on ‘Knowing Brothers”.
He said, that he watched the episode where Lee Seunggi was the guest and that Kang Hodong told him (Seunggi) that “hes the younger brother that Hodong loves”, and that’s why he (Mino) lost some weight. (T/N: Kang Hodong and Mino were popular for their New Journey to the West tandem, whereas Seunggi and Hodong are also close having to work together on 1 Night 2 Days).
Kim Hee Chul also added that Kang Ho Dong have lots of younger brothers, including Boom and Super Junior’s Lee Teuk. The members joked, Mino still have lots of mountains to climb.
Mino also added, “I worked hard on making the WINNER album, I wasn’t able to meet my friends for a drink because I spent a lot of time in the studio even beyond 6pm. I lost 10 kilograms”.
Yoo Byungjae also became the center of attention for the “Yoo Byung Jae phone cases” sold by YG Entertainment, which gained a lot of popularity, recording the highest volume of all phone cases sold by YG.
To this, Kang Ho Dong said, “Famous stars take pictures showing their cell phone cases”. Yoo Byung Jae jokingly commented, “I actually discover it by accident one day”. The members commented that Solhyeon and Jung Eun-ji (girl group members AOA and A-Pink respectively if we’re not mistaken) are also carrying Byung Jae’s phone case.
When Kim Hee Chul asked, “Are yours (phone case) more popular than WINNER’s? Kang Seung Yoon said, “His phone cases are more popular among all phone cases.” Yoo Byung Jae then stated, “It’s the best selling phone case ever made in YG” and “It beats out BIGBANG”. Kang Seung Yoon joked, “I think after GD went to the army, Yoo Byung Jae is replacing GD’s seat now”.
In addition, Yoo Byung Jae said Song Mino is the unfamiliar member among WINNER members, even saying, “He had the same eyes as a friend of mine who’s a bully when I was a kid”. Yoo Byung Jae also made laughter with a useless confrontation with Lee Soogeun regarding their heights (who’s taller).
Kang Seung Yoon also made laughter for revealing Mino’s past. He said, “He came home drunk saying to the members, ‘This is real variety, you should not do that as an ‘entertainer’ while pointing out the members’ unnatural movements motivatingly”.
Song Mino replied, “I do not remember that!”
