In another photo, the variety show had placed hidden cameras in the idol’s bathroom. After the idol realized this, he hurriedly lay flat on the floor to hide his private parts from being recorded.

In yet another example, the idol was filmed swimming while wearing swimming trucks that dissolved in water.
