BTS is Wonhyo’s fan [Happy Together/2019.06.20]On February 13, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Wonhyo, you also was put on the map thanks to “Emergency Committee”. Just like Joonhyun, you earned quite a lot of money from it. People asked you to say your catchphrase at funerals? It was back when I was popular, so I’d get requests everywhere I go. When I walk by, people would say, “No, get over here.” (“No, get over here.”) – “No, get over here.” / – I’m grateful to get noticed even at funerals, but requesting my catchphrase… – That’s awful. / – Exactly. It’s not appropriate. This one time though, the family said it wasn’t a sad death. “Go ahead and say the catchphrase.” – The family? / – Yes, a family member. The family asked, so I couldn’t exactly turn them down either. As you know, my catchphrase could sound quite negative. However, I can rephrase my catchphrase and say, “You can’t not do something.” I decided to accept their request. “You can’t leave us so early!” (You can’t leave us so early!) Did they like it? I kept getting requests. That reminds me of something too. Many of my elderly relatives were invited to my wedding. My grandfather sternly said that weddings should be solemn and serious. So that’s the tone my wedding was set in. My father gave a speech, and we were announced husband and wife. Just then, Wonhyo suddenly cried out, “No!” My grandfather went from smiling to… (Grunting) He was over the moon to see his grandson get married, but… (Who’s objecting?) He brought us yet another laugh. – He was shaking? / – I can’t believe it. – That was a great one. / – I was so surprised. I hear that Wonhyo is liked by BTS. You’re the celebrity BTS likes? Last year, there was a music award where all K-pop artists were invited to. My wife and I were the hosts of the ceremony. We heard that BTS would be there, so we wanted a chance to say hello. I wanted to say that I was a fan. After the show though, BTS spotted me and came up to me first. “Wonhyo, I’m your fan!” (Wonhyo, I’m your fan!) The person who said that was V. – V? / – V said that? – There’s a photo. / – Where? – There you go. / – No way. Only one could’ve said it, but the entire team said my catchphrase together. “No!” (We shouldn’t not be friends!) Thanks to this anecdote, we now know that BTS is Wonhyo’s fan. (BTS is Wonhyo’s fan.) An article will be written about it. “BTS Is Wonhyo’s Fan”.
