[NEWS] How Did Daesung and Seungri Save Ex-Idol Chun Myung Hoon?
First generation idol star Chun Myung Hoon (from the group N.R.G.) revealed how the current idol group, Big Bang has saved him.
On March 13, “Radio Star” aired a special episode that featured first generation idol members including H.O.T‘s Lee Jae Won, Sechskies‘ Kim Jae Duk, g.o.d‘s Danny Ahn and N.R.G’s Chun Myung Hoon.
First, Chun Myung Hoon spoke about Seungri. He said that Seungri was the one who made him come to his senses during his dark times.
During the episode, Chun Myung Hoon said, “When I was wandering in between music and variety shows, I went to the club a lot,” and “Each time I went clubbing, Big Bang’s Seungri always came to me first and respectfully greeted me.”
Chun Myung Hoon continued, “When I saw that a ‘high-class’ person was respecting me, I took it as him saying, ‘Hyungnim, what are you doing here?’ So I came to my senses after that.”
Then, Chun Myung Hoon shared a story regarding Big Bang’s Daesung.
He said, “I thought I would keep succeeding through variety shows but starting from some point, my success began to dwindle. So starting then, I stopped watching variety shows,” and “I randomly came across an episode of ‘Radio Star’ and saw that Daesung was a guest. During that episode, Daesung said, ‘I don’t find Chun Myung Hoon’s comedy funny.’”
Chun Myung Hoon said that in the past, he would have brushed this off as Daesung being cute. But this time, he felt really insecure and said he was waiting to take revenge on Daesung.
“Back then, it was like a perfect storm came over me and I got angry at every single little thing,” he explained. Chun Myung Hoon continued, “As I was eating and drinking soju, I told myself that I would definitely meet Daesung and teach him a thing or two. But after time passed and looking back at it, I think that was what saved me,” as he expressed his gratitude toward Daesung.

[NEWS] Legendary 1st Generation Idols Choose the Current Groups They Would Most Want to Join
The legendary 1st generation idols who paved the way for current idols, chose the idol groups from the current generation that they would most like to be a part of.
On the March 13th episode of ‘Radio Star‘, g.o.d‘s Danny Ahn, Sechskies‘ Kim Jae Duk, NRG‘s Chun Myung Hoon, and H.O.T‘s Lee Jae Won were asked to choose a current generation idol group they would like to join.
Danny Ahn chose INFINITE because he reasoned, “Their choreography is very definite. When INFINITE first debuted, I saw an article where they said they wanted to become singers like g.o.d. I think that’s why they remain more in my mind than the others.”
Lee Jae Won selected Super Junior and stated, “I want to be a part of Super Junior. To be honest, you can sort of ride the coattails of the other members. There are so many members, so you don’t have to be burdened.” At this, MC Yoon Jong Shin joked, “It won’t seem apparent even if you slack off a little.” Lee Jae Won agreed and continued, “Since there are a lot of unique members, you just have to ride on their backs.”
When Yoon Jong Shin said, “Are you trying to say that they’re a little lacking?“, he replied, “No, I’m just saying that there are a lot of members“. Kyuhyun jokingly admitted, “We are a little laid back“, to which Lee Jae Won said, “If I go in there and do the dance, I don’t think people will notice.” Kyuhyun joked again, “That might actually happen.”
Sechskies’ Kim Jae Duk chose Big Bang, stating, “I want to join my favorite group Big Bang. They’re very good at their music, and they’re so cool on stage.” He had brought along Jang Soo Won as a special guest, who said, “I want to be part of Super Junior, too. There are a lot of units where you can make money from.” When MC Kim Kuk Jin joked, “There are also a lot of members you can borrow money from“, and he replied coolly, “You’re right.” Kyuhyun revealed that he was close with Kangin, and Jang Soo Won joked, “Kangin can leave and I’ll take his place. I don’t think I can go after him in terms of conversation skills, but I think I can fill his part on stage.“
