When MONSTA X appeared on Weekly Idol, the mystery of why Hyungwon and a few of the other members avoided Joohoney‘s video calls was finally solved.
Joohoney pointed out how Hyungwon ignores his calls but later responds with a message. He said, “When I video call Hyungwon, he doesn’t pick up. Then, he texts me the next day.”
Since the hosts asked what they typically say when Joohoney calls, Kihyun made them laugh with his honesty. He replied, “I don’t really answer it. …He calls me at 4 a.m. or 3:30 a.m.” Hyungwon had a different reason why he didn’t answer Joohoney’s video calls, though.
Though Minhyuk joked that Hyungwon was avoiding Joohoney, Hyungwon explained the funny reason why.
Instead of Joohoney asking for advice on the music he’s working on, Hyungwon said, “He’d work on a song and drink a glass of beer… He would call me and just talk about himself and hang up.” Hyungwon explained how Joohoney could be a bit over the top.
He calls me when he’s drunk. He calls me early in the morning as if I was his ex. That’s why I started to avoid his calls.
At the hosts’ request, Hyungwon shared one of the phrases Joohoney says the most during their late-night calls. Making Joohoney laugh with the rest of them, Hyungwon imitated him, “Honey, I miss you.”
Although it caused laughter, it shows how much Joohoney cares about his members and wants to see their faces.
