Super Junior Eun Hyuk told the reason why he had such a shocking expression that day.
In the 300th episode of JTBC’s show “Knowing Bros” aired on October 2, Young Tak, Lee Chan Won, Dong Hae, and Eun Hyuk appeared as guests.
In celebration of Super Junior D&E’s 10th anniversary, Dong Hae and Eun Hyuk recalled the memories when they were nominated for the No.1 place on a music show along with BTS.
Last year, Super Junior D&E was promoting “B.A.D” at the same time as BTS’s “Dynamite” so both groups were nominated for 1st place.
Eun Hyuk shared his thoughts about being nominated when “Dynamite” was receiving huge love from music fans all over the world, “Our fans bought a lot of albums so we could be nominated for the 1st place along with them“
Eun Hyuk said he was really grateful to be nominated for the 1st place and confessed that he didn’t even expect to win the first place because viewers’ points and broadcasting points are often not counted in the first week of the comeback.
Then, he also explained the situation at that time, “We thought about what gestures should we show to fans when the winner was announced so we ended up acting a little bit“
In response, Min Kyung Hoon asked, “You could just get off stage after the announcement, but why did you stay when BTS’s song was played?” and Eun Hyuk answered, “It was the stage looked so empty. BTS was not there on stage, so I thought we should do something for the viewers.“
In fact, during the broadcast of KBS2’s “Music Bank” in September last year, Eun Hyuk and Dong Hae made fans laugh so hard with their shocking reaction after hearing the announcement of the winner.
At that time, although Eun Hyuk and Dong Hae couldn’t get the No.1 trophy, they still filled up the empty stage by walking around the stage with mouths opened widely and hands put on their waists pretending to look sad. Been singers for 16 years already, they looked so relaxed and comfortable in that situation.
