Although some of the members seemed shy around IU, one person who oozed charisma and charm was Hoshi. In particular, one moment caught the attention of netizens worldwide and had them swooning left, right, and center.

Hoshi wowed audiences and IU by showcasing his amazing choreography, and the idol even revealed she wanted to have the members on stage and how much she was enjoying speaking with them.

You’ve put your time and effort into this. We’ve just got to know each other today…

Yet, all of a sudden, fans and IU were in for the shock of their lives when Hoshi suddenly jumped out of his seat, exclaiming, “Just one second… Go away!

It seemed as if everyone was as confused as each other at Hoshi’s sudden energy. However, it quickly became clear that Hoshi was being a true gentleman as he swiped something off IU’s bright yellow skirt.

After looking on the floor, IU noticed that Hoshi had swiped a bee off her skirt that had been sitting there, probably because of the bright yellow that seemed similar to a flower. Netizens also noticed that Hoshi pulled down his sleeve before doing it to show respect and not directly touch IU’s skirt.

If that wasn’t enough, after proving to be a true gentleman, Hoshi also showcased his charismatic and smooth side. Hoshi made netizens swoon as he explained, “It knows who the flower is,” causing the cast to laugh.

A replay of the incident showcased a different angle of what happened, and Hoshi literally leaped into action. Although it doesn’t seem like IU is scared of bugs, it was still a kind gesture as she probably wouldn’t have noticed it for a long time.
