Seungri Makes MIXNINE Contestant Cry With His Harsh Comments

When Han Hye Ri finished her run on Produce 101 in 12th place, many believed in her potential, unique singing voice, and positive attitude.

All three were tested on a recent episode of MIXNINE when she performed in front of BIGBANG’s Seungri.

Things started on a lighthearted note as Han Hye Ri answered Seungri’s question, “What do you think your unique charm is?”

“You can tell just by looking — I’m cute!”

— Han Hye Ri

Han Hye Ri then went on to confidently perform her routine to BoA’s “Atlantis Princess”.

But, by the look on Seungri’s face, it appears that he felt her confidence was misplaced.

When the song was over, Seungri asked Han Hye Ri what she thought of her performance.

“Hye Ri, do you think your performance was good?”

— BIGBANG’s Seungri

When Hye Ri answered “Yes” to the question, Seungri reprimanded her.

“Are you always optimistic? I don’t think it’s a good thing for your career. Right now, you’re too much “Look, I’m cute. I’m cute, right?” It says here on the chart, “With a cute visual and singing voice, her fans call her ‘Chirper’.” But when you’re singing, you can’t chirp chirp chirp like a sparrow when you’re singing. You’re not a sparrow.”

— BIGBANG’s Seungri

Seungri’s tough feedback brought Han Hye Ri to tears as she failed to make it past the qualifiers.

Despite the bad news, and through her tears, she showed her unique charm to the very end, saying, “I’m hungry. That was so mean. I’m gonna tell on him to my mom.”
