Haha Clears Up Misunderstanding Regarding SHINee Jonghyun’s Behavior on ‘Infinity Challenge’
After several viewers became uncomfortable by SHINee Jonghyun’s behavior towards Haha on MBC’s Infinity Challenge, Jonghyun made a formal apology, followed by Haha clearing up misunderstandings.
On September 13’s broadcast of Infinity Challenge, Haha visited Jonghyun to prepare for the day when he takes over Jonghyun’s radio program, Jonghyun’s Blue Night as DJ for the ‘Radio Day’ special.
During the meeting with Haha and the radio program staff, Jonghyun made comments such as, “Why does Haha hyung have to DJ for Blue Night?” and “The radio concept can be shameless, because you’re totally shameless now.”
While most people saw it as a friendly joke, there were several other viewers who found Jonghyun’s behavior disrespectful, leading to Jonghyun’s apology on Twitter.
He wrote on September 14, “After the Infinity Challenge broadcast, I received a lot of advice. Because Haha hyung and I are very close, I was very excited and hyped up that I ended up making viewers scowl without even realizing it. I want to apologize to all the people who love Infinity Challenge and to our family at Blue Night as well. I’ll also apologize to Haha hyung separately. The Radio Special continues next week, so look forward to it. I learned a lot from this recent broadcast. I want to say sorry again. Please love Blue Night and Infinity Challenge!”
After seeing the apology and the current situation, Haha also posted something up on his Twitter, clearing up misunderstandings.
“It looks like there was a tiny misunderstanding about Jonghyun with you all~^^ Like Jonghyun said, we’re really close and was just trying to have fun, since it is a variety show. I guess some people thought that was a bit uncomfortable. Jonghyun did his best~ Everyone~ please love Jonghyun! SHINee jjang~!! Hahaha.”
