WHY DOES WINNER DO INTERVIEWS LIKE THIS
((T/N: Pann posts usually have clickbait titles like this))
They’re so funny, seriously ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Q. Today’s photoshoot concept was you guys having a party. Have you had parties like this at the end of the year?
SY: Actually, we don’t really celebrate the end of the year with parties. Two years ago, when we were trainees with the iKON members, all 11 of us did a Secret Santa together. (T/N: He was talking about post-WIN when iKON had 6 members and WINNER were 5 members.) We had a really fun year-end holidays back then.
SH: I still remember it. We made the rules so that we could buy anything that doesn’t cost over 30,000won. We randomly picked out names and gave each other the gifts. Jinwoo-hyung said that he wanted to gift his person a hat so I followed him but the hat was so ugly. I thought to myself, “It’s such a bad gift. I feel sorry for the person who gets it” but in the end, I got that hat. I still have it (laughs).
Before debuting, WINNER and iKON did a Secret Santa together. Jinwoo said that he wanted to buy a hat so Seunghoon followed him to the store. Seunghoon felt sorry for the person who will get the ugly hat. But when he opened up his Christmas present, that ugly hat was there ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Q. Do you think you’re the most good-looking member in WINNER?
SY: Yes. I’m satisfied with my looks.
SH: Yes. If I don’t acknowledge my looks, I don’t think anyone will give me #1 in looks.
MH: No. Jinwoo-hyung is the best looking and I’m 2nd place.
JW: Not yes, not no. If you’re talking about #1 in looks, it’s Kim Jinwoo but since beauty is subjective and we each have different charms, I can’t give a direct answer.
WINNER answered a questions about whether they think they’re the best looking in the group
Lee Seunghoonㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He said “Yes” because if he doesn’t acknowledge his looks no one else willㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
SH: Actually, our fans often tell me that I’m good-looking. But there is a difference when they sob and shout out, “oppa, you’re so good-looking!” with all the power of the universe in front of Jinwoo-hyung
Kim Jinwoo’s face that makes fans sob and shout with all the power of the universe
I’m ending this post with WINNER fooling around and wanting to cover all 4 of them with that tiny umbrella prop during pre-recording break-time…
H: Your blouse is so pretty~! Let me see your nails~ Show me your left hand too~ Your ring is pretty too!
F: Do you want to see my bracelet? It’s pretty, right?
H: Yeah, it’s pretty. Ok, now start singing the song you prepared for me!
At a fansign, he gave compliments to a fan and then smoothly asked her to sing for him
[+373, -3] Lee Seunghoon is so sweet offstage… They were going to on a public fansign at Daegu but they made it private at the last minute so WINNER members said they were sorry and did fan-service to the fans [who just came to watch]. Lee Seunghoon caught the fence and the fans who were falling over and said, “Oppa saved you”
[+347, -2] Lee Seunghoon is the funniest person everㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ A fan said she wants to pierce her nose but he said, “Are you going to drop out of school?” and told her to just glue a fake diamond insteadㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Fan: Oppa, I’m going to pierce my nose
Other idols: Whoa~ Really? You’re going to look so pretty
Lee Seunghoon: Are you planning on dropping out?
(T/N: Most high schools don’t allow students to get piercings)
[+227, -4] I’m a fan of a different group but Lee Seunghoon’s cuteness and kindness can be felt all the way here… Ah… And how it’s so obvious that he really loves his fans…
[+158, -0] WINNER interview that was aired yesterday… No, just please be reborn as WINNER in your next lives too…
Q. Who do you want to be reborn as?
SY: Yang Hyunsuk’s son
JW: Yang Hyunsuk’s wife
MH: Yang Hyunsuk
(T/N: They were joking around and said they chose who they chose because they would be rich)
[+125. -1] Whenever I see posts like this I yell this again, “What is Lee Seunghoon?? He is the best through and through” Alright everyone, please repeat after me, “Lee Seunghoon is the best through and through”
Fan: Seunghoon-ah, may I be the only flaw* in your life? ㅠㅠㅠ I love you
SH: I’ll fill up the rest of the 95 points*
*”flaw” and “points” are homonyms so Hoon made a wordplay to simultaneously say that the fan isn’t a flaw at all and that he will be the one to complete her life
[+103, -1] Lee Seunghoon is so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ One time, Seunghoon searched his name on a second-hand website (T/N: something like eBay) and he found that someone was selling his photocards and signed albums so he mentioned it on his Naver fancafeㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ So funny
Fan: I got randomly picked for the WINNERCITY streaming event!ㅜㅜ I got the poster of you!
SH: Are you going to sell that on that second-hand website too?
[+93. -0] It was so legendary when the bodyguards told fans to stop taking pics so when the fans became all ㅠㅠ and put down their cameras, Seungyoon said, “Everyone looks so heartbroken… Please let them do what they want” and let the fans take pictures. When fans came wearing skirts, instead of saying “Don’t wear skirts next time”, they said, “We’re sorry, we will hold the fansign at a lower level next time” and then had female staff members wrap blankets around fans’ waists ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
[+91, 0] WINNER’s optimistic flow of logicㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Why are they ok with everything
Screwed up the egg rolls —> We can fry it instead! —> Screwed up fried eggs —> We’ll eat steamed eggs! —> Screwed up the kimchi stew —> It tastes like Thai food, very exotic! —> Burned the rice —> We can just make crispy rice!
ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ (T/N: This happened in Youth Over Flowers)
[+86, -1] Here’s a legendary fan account of Lee Seunghoon at a fansign
Fan: Oppa, please write me a message!
SH: I already wrote one
Fan: Can’t you write more…?
SH: If I write more, I’ll only look at the album, I won’t be able to look at you
[+83, -0] ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ This is the funniest
Q. Jinwoo, you were the youngest in other variety shows like “Wizard of Nowhere” while you were the oldest in “Youth Over Flowers”
JW: I’m not the type of person to make a huge deal over the roles of the youngest and the roles of the oldest. I don’t think it’s right to lead the boys and be strict because I’m the oldest. Whether I’m the youngest in a group of people or the oldest, I behave the same.
SH: Really? Then bring me some water.
