Kangnam appeared as a special MC on ‘Radio Star’.
On the August 9th special episode of MBC’s ‘Radio Star’, Turbo’s Kim Jong-kook and Kim Jung-nam, 2PM’s Chansung and WINNER’s Kim Jin-woo appeared as guests. Kangnam joined the guests as a special MC.
Kangnam officially confessed to dating former girl-group member and actress UEE after dating news broke out back in July 14th. The two were revealed to have been dating for three months until their recent break-up on August 1st. He showed up to film ‘Radio Star’ the day after, with little time to process the break-up.
In the beginning of the show, Kangnam could not hide his nervousness. “Go easy on me,” he said to MC Kim Gook-jin, Yoon Jong-shin and Kim Gu-ra. He then proceeded to ask sensitive and deep-probing questions to the rest of the guests.
To Kim Jong-kook, he said, “Since your eyes are so small, I feel like it’d be impossible to get dirt in them,” and “Isn’t it time for you to get married?” To self-proclaimed ‘mojiri’ (dummy) WINNER’s Kim Jin-woo, he said, “You really look like you don’t know anything.” He also dissed ‘Kim Jong-kook’s dependent’ Kim Jung-nam and brought laughter on set.
Chansung shared a story about the time when he and trainer Taek-yeon ate 500,000 won (500 USD) worth of food at a snack stand, to which Kangnam said, “You eat a lot,” and “Is that why they have food expense restrictions at JYP now?”
Kangnam also shared his thoughts on appearing on the show. “To be honest, I thought that I would have to smile all the time when doing variety, but today, I realized that’s not the case,” he said. “I learned a lot. Thank you for teaching me so many things.”
WINNER’s Kim Jin-woo also shared his thoughts on YG. “WINNER has destroyed YG’s mysterious image,” he said. In regards to his members, he shared, “Song Min-ho is lacking in the variety department while I lack a lot of knowledge in general. That’s not to say that Min-ho is fake. He just lacks some knowledge,” he said humorously.
