K pop boy band WINNER is catching some heat for remarks at their latest concert. According to Dispatch, WINNER sang hits like "EVERYDAY" and "Empty", asked concertgoers questions, and gave out autographed albums. The issue occurred when the group members were choosing which audience members would receive autographed CDs.
While the members were discussing how to pick lucky students, Song Min Ho looked at his underwear and suggested, "Underwear? Underwear color? Let's pick the person who's wearing underwear with the same color as me."
The other members quickly responded, "I think that's a bad idea. How are we even going to find out what their underwear color is?" Kang Seung Yoon explained apologetically, "We had a full schedule since the morning before we came here. I think he's really tired," and Kim Jin Woo said jokingly, "He's gone crazy." Dispatch has reported some students, concertgoers, and netizens are complaining Song Min Ho's comment was inappropriate.
WINNER is a South Korean boy group formed in 2013 by YG Entertainment and debuted in 2014. It currently consists of four members, Jinwoo, Seunghoon, Mino and Seungyoon. Originally a five-piece, Taehyun later departed from the group in November 2016.
