However, while explaining one of their choreography moves, the comedian said, "If you raise your arm only partly, you look like a cripple." The term used (byungshin) is usually translated to 'retard', but is more literally a derogatory term to describe the physically disabled.

Yoo Se Yoon's label issues official apology for using derogatory term at the 'SMTOWN Live'

Yoo Se Yoon's label apologized for his actions at the 'SMTOWN Live'.

On the 10th, his label said, "We bow our heads in apology to the people who were disturbed by Yoo Se Yoon's words. At the time, Yoo Se Yoon was very hyped up because he was performing 'Itaewon Freedom' for the first time in a while. He wanted to make the mood even better and ad-libbed, and used a word he shouldn't have. He is deeply apologetic for not realizing that the word was a word you should use neither in public nor in private, and that it was a derogatory word. He will be more careful while talking, and he will become a TV personality that can be a model to everyone. We apologize once again to those who were disturbed."

WINNER's Kang Seung Yoon makes a surprise appearance at A Pink Eunji's solo concert

On June 3, A Pink's Eunji held her solo concert at Ewha Women's University Samsung Hall. During the concert, the attendees were pleasantly surprised when WINNER's Kang Seung Yoon made an appearance!

Kang Seung Yoon was invited as a special guest for Eunji's show. They sang "Wound Deeper Than Love" and "All For You". He also had a chance to sing "Instinctively" to wow the crowd. 

These two artists are hometown friends who've known each other for quite some time now. Both are from Busan and attended the same private music class. But also, being the same age (Eunji '93-er' and Seung Yoon early '94-er') adds to the chemistry of these two.
