When it comes to the relationship between CEOs and their idols, none is more iconic than HYBE‘s Bang Si Hyuk and his artists. In particular, he has always showcased his love and support for TXT. Recently, MOAs have been treated to some hilarious interactions after the group’s appearance on a variety show.
To celebrate the release of their latest album, TXT appeared in a video with KBS Kpop and Studio K. As expected, it was truly chaos from the very beginning, with Taehyun even being picked off a swimming inflatable by staff as if he was in a claw machine.
During one of the parts, the group had a chance to vent about any problems they had. Beomgyu went onto the balcony and screamed Bang Si Hyuk’s name.
As Yeonjun nodded along and clapped, Beomgyu asked Bang Si Hyuk to let the group take more breaks and enjoy more of the tasty meat he treated them to.
Give us some break time! And after going to that beef restaurant, I can’t eat any other beef. So, buy it again!
When the staff heard Beomgyu’s message for Bang Si Hyuk, they said, “I think we will all be fired.” Even Beomgyu jokingly said, “Our team will eventually be four members.”
As expected, Beomgyu had the perfect response and blamed leader Soobin, adding, “So far, this is what Soobin hyung told me to say.”
Well, it seems like Bang Si Hyuk heard and saw everything Beomgyu said.
During a recent broadcast, Beomgyu revealed that Bang Si Hyuk had actually watched their appearance on Idol Theater. Yet, it seems like the text on the screen was split, which meant the comment didn’t come across in the best way.
The part where I said, ‘Bang Si Hyuk! PD-nim!’, there was a slight pause between Bang Si Hyuk and producer. So, even in the subtitles, there was a lag between Bang Si Hyuk and producer.
After taking a break from one of their schedules, Beomgyu revealed that he’d received a text from Bang Si Hyuk at 3 AM, and it was a screenshot of that scene, but only with the words “Bang Si Hyuk.”
When he got the text, Beomgyu quickly responded to him, saying, “PD-nim, this is a misunderstanding. I immediately said ‘PD-nim’ in the scene after this screenshot.”
Beomgyu added that their CEO had sent four messages to him all showing pictures from his scene and it seems like their request for meat might have been approved. Beomgyu then joked that variety shows might be the best way to communicate.
They then showcased Bang Si Hyuk’s true personality and dedication to his artists by sharing that he always watched the content of his artists, with Hueningkai even joking that he could be watching the broadcast live.
As expected, Bang Si Hyuk continues to show why he is loved by so many netizens and TXT’s Beomgyu proves that he is truly iconic and never stops making MOAs laugh.
