A member of Knowing Bros was criticized for calling minor idol IVE Wong Young ‘honey’
Jang Won-young, a minor idol, was recently mentioned in JTBC’s ‘Knowing Bros’, causing a heated debate among netizens.
In the episode of ‘Knowing Bros’ broadcast on the 28th, members Jeonghan, Joshua, Jun, Hoshi, The8, Mingyu, Dokyeom, and Seungkwan of the group ‘Seventeen’ appeared as guests.
On this day’s broadcast, the members played a game called ‘Look at the Monitor’ in which they guess the person by looking at the picture. When Jang Won-young’s picture appeared on the monitor, Lee Sang-min immediately answered, “Ive.”
Judge Shin Dong surprisingly said, “Oh, who’s this?”, Lee Sang-min replied, “She’s our sister-in-law”. When Lee Jin-ho said, “She was my wife in a skit”, Kang Ho-dong requested, “It’s been a long time. Send her a video letter”
Lee Jin-ho then said, “Honey, how are you doing?”, and mentioned Park Min-sun, his partner in another skit, saying “Mi-dal’s mother, how are you doing?”.
However, after the show, some netizens posted complaints on the viewer’s bulletin board, saying, “I don’t like what you say to a minor, ‘my sister-in-law’ and ‘honey’”; “Do you think you can say ‘my wife’ joke forever?”
