He told Jaejoong directly!

Fans of ATEEZ have watched San grow from being a relatively thin and lean rookie idol to becoming the incredibly buff and broad-shouldered man he is today.

While there was a time that it was rare to get glimpses of his muscles, these days he seems much more confident in showing off his well-toned figure, such as in his recent dance performance to “Warriors” by Imagine Dragons!

Given his confidence in performing and how captivating he is to watch, one might think that he wouldn’t get flustered by seeing another male idol dancing in a sexy way. But he recently revealed that he had such an instance when he was younger, thanks to Kim Jaejoong!

Back in September 2008, TVXQ was still a five-member group under SM Entertainment. At this time, they released the still-iconic hit “Mirotic” that was so sexy that it ended up being banned by Korean broadcast for a time.

During the most recent episode of Jaejoong’s show “Jaefriends”, San and fellow ATEEZ members Yeosang and Wooyoung were the featured guests to promote their new album, THE WORLD EP.FIN : WILL.

While chatting and bonding over a meal, when the topic of “Mirotic” came up. Wooyoung mentioned how Jaejoong had been tied up in the video. San then chimed in by saying how he hadn’t been able to sleep after watching it, because it was so sexy. He even mentioned that he watched it in his dad’s office, and turned bright red! He would have only been nine at the time, so it’s not too surprising that he would get so flustered.

ATINYs are endeared by this adorable admittance to Jaejoong himself, and can definitely relate to his reaction to “Mirotic”.
