He was talking about his height when he changed the topic by saying, “I think idols these days are ugly. They look so dirtily ugly at the salon. Why is that?”. The fans, who were listening to the story, responded by saying, “That’s right.”
Kang Sung-hoon stressed several times that they were “dirtily ugly” and that there skin is also dirty. When asked by fans who looked ugly, he answered, “How can I mention who they are?”
“There hasn’t been any good-looking idol since TVXQ,” said Kang Sung-hoon. When a fan asked him “How about the group BTOB who you met last time?”, he answered, “How could I say that it was them I was talking about.”
“(If I was the producer), I’ll pick them by their face. If you’re a celebrity, you should look good,” he said.
