Netizens Speculate How Wonho Was Able To Participate In The “Music Bank Stair Shot” Challenge

BTS’s Jin recently attempted, but his broad shoulders wouldn’t allow him to go far.

It’s become tradition that whenever K-Pop idols perform on KBS‘s Music Bank they will stop and take pictures at the famous staircase.

While idols normally pose on the staircase, often sitting on the steps or leaning across the rail, some have taken the photo op to the next level…

In April, OH MY GIRL‘s Seunghee posted a series of photos of herself posed at the Music Bank staircase. To many fans’ surprise, a couple of the shots featured her small frame enclosed by the handlebars!

Lee Jin Hyuk (formerly known by the stage name Wei) followed Seunghee shortly after, also posted on posting photos of himself on Instagram of himself enclosed by the handlebars. He even included a video showcasing how he was able to get out! He captioned the post, “I take up the challenge too.

So, sure enough, had challenge had begun in which K-Pop idols now take their iconic Music Bank staircase photos in the handlebars.

Recently, when BTS made their comeback with anthology album Proof and title track “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment),” the group appeared on several music shows, including Music Bank. So, of course, some of the members stopped to take photos at the staircase, and Jin took up the challenge!

ARMYs appreciated Jin’s humor and unique pose but couldn’t help but think that the reason only his head was through the handlebars was because his broad shoulders wouldn’t allow him to go any further…

Yet, another fit male idol has proved that anything is possible!

On June 25, solo artist and Captain Korea himself Wonho shared photos of himself at the Music Bank staircase, and he proved that he can fit in both sides of the handrails! Recently, Wonho has been promoting new single “CRAZY.”
