Aespa’s NingNing Gains Attention After Making An Unexpected “Mistake” When Talking To Lee Kwang Soo About “Running Man”

Don’t worry, Kwang Soo made an equally hilarious mistake!

Aespa‘s NingNing might be extremely talented and beautiful, but the idol recently gained attention for her hilarious charisma when interacting with Korean actor Lee Kwang Soo.

Recently, amidst their “Spicy” promotions, the members all appeared on Kim Jong Kook‘s YouTube channel.

Unsurprisingly, the video showed the members doing some workouts, and they all seemed to be having fun in a more casual setting and with Kim Jong Kook giving them a chance to showcase their personalities.

Before they got into the exercise, the members all sat down with Kim Jong Kook. They chatted about their comeback and the members’ exercise and workout habits.

Of course, along with his past as an idol and fitness fanatic, Kim Jong Kook is known as one of the cast members of the iconic variety show Running Man. 

During the video, after witnessing how funny the members were, Kim Jong Kook wondered why the group hadn’t been on the show before.

Kim Jong Kook then asked the members who their favorite cast member of the show was.

While Winter picked Jihyo and Karina and Giselle picked Kim Jong Kook…

NingNing then explained that alongside Kim Jong Kook, she also liked veteran personality Lee Kwang Soo…

Of course, considering how close Kim Jong Kook is to Kwang Soo, NingNing couldn’t hide her excitement when they got to speak to him on the phone.

Yet, that’s where the real chaos started.

When Lee Kwang Soo claimed he’s a huge aespa fan and knows everything about them since the group’s debut, Kim Jong Kook asked what their debut song was. Hilariously, the star got it wrong as he said, “Next Level.”

If things weren’t chaotic enough, when NingNing explained that she loves watching Kwang Soo on Running Man, Kim Jong Kook explained that he left the show a long time ago… which made aespa laugh even more.

When the video was shared, netizens couldn’t get enough of the interaction between the two stars. Despite them both claiming to be fans of each other, they seemingly knew nothing about their careers, and netizens want NingNing and Kwang Soo to meet in real life.

As expected, NingNing proves to be not just talented and beautiful but also perfect on variety shows and promotions. It would be amazing to have aespa on Running Man, and they might be able to get Kwang Soo back for a special episode.
