Watch: Red Velvet’s Wendy Adorably Tries Arm Wrestling With INFINITE’s Sunggyu

Red Velvet appeared on the February 24 episode of “Singderella” as the first guest after INFINITE’s Sunggyu joined the show.

When the hosts asked Wendy who she would pick out of the four MCs if she were to be stuck in an island with him, she picked INFINITE’s Sunggyu.

Wendy explained why, saying, “It’s because I don’t know much about him yet.”

Her interaction with Sunggyu continued later in the show when she was debating what to show as her talent. After thinking, she decided, “Arm wrestle?” and picked Sunggyu as her opponent.

Sunggyu told her, “I took boxing lessons when I was young,” and demonstrated a few moves. Hilariously, Wendy imitated his moves right after and received more compliments from the hosts.

Sunggyu let her arm wrestle with her left arm, which she claimed had more strength.

When the arm wrestle began, Sunggyu smiled and said he wasn’t sure if he should let her win or not. The MCs teased him saying that he’s stalling time to continue holding hands with Wendy, which he didn’t actually deny.

After letting his arm fall a bit to her side, Sunggyu smiled and easily won the arm wrestle.

Afterwards, Wendy became worried that her nails made marks on his hand. The other hosts became envious of her attention and asked her to look at their hand, too.

Highlight (Formerly BEAST) Members Reach Out To Fans About New Name

After it was announced that the BEAST members would be letting go of their trademark issue with Cube Entertainment and promoting as “Highlight,” Lee Gi Kwang, Son Dongwoon, Yang Yoseob, Yoon Doo Joon, and Yong Junhyung took to Instagram to reach out to their fans about the news.

Son Dongwoon changed his Instagram name to @highlight_dw and his bio to read, “you are my Highlight.” He also posted a black-and-white picture of the five members at a concert and wrote, “BEAST BEAST BEAST is a beyond painful name. There will be lots of people who say we changed our name too easily, or that they can’t get used to it, but we really tried hard. This hurts us more than anybody else, but we’re grateful. It will be painful to get used to the new name, but we can only pray that we all get used to it soon. Please support Highlight.”

Lee Gi Kwang didn’t post any picture, but captioned a black photo, “The name that we have carried for so long, ‘BEAST.’ It was a name that stuck by us through it all and made us happy but it’s time to let it go. We’re now in a position where we can start fresh with ‘Highlight.’ Right now lots of people are probably feeling strange and unfamiliar with the new name, but we ask for your love and support. We’ll work hard. Watch over us.”

Yoon Doo Joon posted a picture of a shooting star and wrote, “It’s been a while since I used the word ‘BEAST’ on here. This name has given us lots of memories and we worked hard to try and keep it, but this is goodbye. Now we are starting again with ‘Highlight!!’ It will take a long time to get used to, right? But the members and our fans will always have the memories we’ve built up over the years, so let’s greet each other with a smile… We ask for your love and support!! Fighting!!”

Yang Yoseob posted a photo of five Mickey Mouse figurines to represent the five members and wrote, “The love we received with the name BEAST… I will treasure the bright honors and the precious memories in my heart and start anew together with everyone with the name Highlight. I believe that everyone’s love and support will be a great strength to the new group ‘highlight.’ With love and respect, Yoseob.” Yang Yoseob also changed his Instagram bio to read, “H I G H L I G H T.”

3 Times Idols May Have Been Hurt By Fans’ Insensitive Comments

Although it’s an unfortunate truth that idols are the target of many haters, sometimes idols can be hurt even by comments from their fans.

Recently an issue that arose at Cosmic Girls’ fan meeting on February 19 has gained traction online. At the fan meeting, someone told member Eunseo that she resembled Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a soccer player for Manchester United.

Eunseo reportedly showed signs of tears afterwards and the fan meeting was briefly halted.

At a previous fan meeting on February 7, a similar incident occurred, with a fan suddenly shouting to Eunseo, “Aren’t you Zlatan?” When Eunseo expressed confusion, the fan explained that she looked like Zlatan, which made many of the fans in attendance laugh.

Similarly insensitive comments have been directed at TWICE. In one clip of what appears to be a fan meeting, the girls were answering a question about which sports would suit each member when one fan shouted to Jihyo, “Weightlifting.” Reportedly, he kept shouting it at her even when the other girls tried to move on.

The clip also includes the end of another or possibly the same fan meeting, where Tzuyu was getting ready to say her goodbyes like the other members. However, one fan shouted at her, “Don’t talk. Shut your mouth.” Eventually Tzuyu handed over the mic to someone else.

Said fan explained his actions later, saying that he said it out of regret that the fan meeting had to end.

What do you think about comments like these? Were these fans crossing a line?
