When it comes to being an idol, there are some strict expectations on how they should behave. One of the biggest no-nos is swearing. It’s almost impossible to see idols cursing during live broadcasts or promotions, and if they are, the words are normally censored.
One person who has recently gained attention for cursing during a live broadcast is TXT‘s Beomgyu. Yet, nobody’s reaction was funnier than fellow member Yeonjun.
Although all of the TXT members have a close bond, Yeonjun and Beomgyu have always had a hilarious friendship, with netizens dubbing them “Tom and Jerry.”
The phrase comes from the fact that Beomgyu always likes to annoy Yeonjun (like Jerry, the mouse) while the group’s oldest member has the funniest reactions (like Tom, the cat.)
Recently, Yeonjun went on a live broadcast to celebrate his birthday by chatting to MOAs and updating them on things that are happening. It was an epic broadcast with so many funny moments, including cameos by Beomgyu and the other members.
During one moment with Beomgyu, Yeonjun seemed to get very excited and started singing the lyrics to the group’s song “Can’t You See Me” while showing off his really nice jacket.
Even Beomgyu seemed obsessed as he complimented the jacket adding, “Is this what you saved your money for?” Considering just how good it was, it isn’t surprising that Yeonjun seemed quite happy to answer that it was bought with the money he had saved.
Yet, it was Beomgyu’s next comment that Yeonjun (and indeed netizens) had the funniest reaction to. Like many fans, Beomgyu seemed to love Yeonjun’s jacket and shared his love by saying, “S**t, it’s pretty.”
As soon as the words came out of his mouth, Yeonjun couldn’t stop laughing, and it was easy to see why, as Beomgyu had literally just sworn on the live broadcast.
Beomgyu quickly noticed that Yeonjun was laughing while asking where the jacket was from. Yet, when Beomgyu asked why, Yeonjun just replied, “No, it’s nothing. It’s understandable, LOL?”
It didn’t take long for Beomgyu to realize what was happening as he asked, “Because I said s**t?” which Yeonjun obviously agreed was the reason for his laughter.
Luckily, Beomgyu was ready with his explanation, and it seems like the phrasing actually meant something completely different rather than the negative connotations many have. The idol explained, “It’s just an expression of admiration.”
After hearing his explanation, Yeonjun seemed to understand the context more, but it didn’t stop him from finding it hilarious.
Yeah, it’s understandable. It’s understandable to admire. It’s like ‘jjun dah’ (cool) right?
Beomgyu then joked, “Why? Don’t I have enough skin in the game to say that?” The phrase can be likened to Beomgyu asking if he had enough influence or “clout” to be able to say it during a live broadcast.
Hilariously, when the live replay of the broadcast was shown, this part was cut out of the full video. Yet, it wasn’t just Yeonjun who found it hilarious.
When the clip was posted on social media, thousands of fans couldn’t get over how unbothered Beomgyu was about what he said. At the same time, many wished that companies gave dols more freedom to be able to say what they wanted.
As always, Beomgyu proves to be an “Unbothered King,” and, despite their hilarious friendship, Yeonjun always has the best reactions to his younger brother.
