Stray Kids‘ Lee Know recently held a live broadcast to chat with fans and answer their questions, even giving one fan truly reassuring advice.
But as soon as his food arrived, Lee Know excitedly focused on his food instead.
And while he was really excited about trying Chipotle, a popular restaurant chain, for the first time…
Lee Know knew very quickly that it didn’t suit his tastes since, unfortunately, there was cilantro.
Cilantro is a polarizing food, with around 15% of the population having a strange gene variation that makes cilantro (also known as coriander) taste like soap. So it’s not surprising that Lee Know would strongly react to the unexpected flavor.
Still, Lee Know reassured viewers that he’s not a picky eater, it’s just the smell of cilantro that he can’t handle.
I’m not a picky eater in general, but I really can’t bear the smell of cilantro.
The idol tried to figure out a compromise, intending to eat parts of the bowl that didn’t have cilantro. But, unfortunately, even though he assumed the tomato was safe…
It had cilantro attached to it.
And since Lee Know shares that he knows many people enjoy cilantro…
But there are many people who can eat cilantro. Our members too.
He wishes that he was able to eat it too.
But I wish I can eat cilantro too.
Still, Lee Know reassured fans that he would eat well because he also had ramen.
Hopefully, he can try Chipotle again, but this time without the cilantro.
