U-KISS’s Soohyun talked about his peculiar scandal involving 2AM’s Jokwon.
Before their debut, Soohyun and Jokwon became best friends due to the fact that they trained together under the same company for a long time.
The signs of their close friendship could be easily seen through pictures and excessive ‘love messages’, which leads the fans’ misundertanding of thinking that they are gay.
Soohyun spoke about the accusation during the recent interview with TVDaily at Yeuido, Seoul “The gay scandal with Kwon was really strange.”
Soohyun expressed “Both Kwon and I were JYP’s trainees. During that time (training), I shared close friendships with all the trainees, not just with Kwon. I’m close with BEAST’s Dongwoon and Ki Kwang too.”
He added “Now that I read the messages again, it did feels a bit overdone. But it doesn’t matter since it was all in the past, I’m not gay anyway…”
Kibum, who was listening besides him said “After that news came out, the two of them met during KBS Music Bank. Then, Kwon hyung joked around by saying ‘Lets not be friends anymore’ to Soohyun hyung”, and laughed.
Soohyun said with a smile “Honestly, I’m grateful to Kwon. Because of Kwon, we reached #1 on various real time search engines.”
