B2ST’s Kikwang pokes fun at Lee Joon’s variety show skills

B2ST member Lee Kikwang poked fun of MBLAQ Lee Joon‘s variety show talent.

During a recent shoot for MBC Music‘s ‘All the K-Pop‘, B2ST ranked their fellow idols and their level of variety show talent. The boys selected Girls’ Generation, MBLAQ, and they themselves as the idol groups that are the most successful on variety programs, and MC Park Jae Min asked the members what they thought of MBLAQ’s Lee Joon who is quickly rising as the ‘king of variety’.

Without hesitation, Lee Kikwang burst out, “Lee Joon’s variety talents are a bit overrated,” causing MBLAQ member Mir to burst out into laughter and add, “I completely concur with Kikwang’s statement,” causing everyone else on set to laugh as well.

The B2ST members also performed comical sexy dances on the spot, and did their best impressions of other celebrities, displaying that they too had impressive variety show talent.

B2ST’s Junhyung has a fat tongue?

B2ST‘s rapper Junhyung‘s nickname was recently revealed to be ‘Tongue Fatty‘ on the September 5th episode of MBC every1‘s ‘Weekly Idol‘, giving everyone on the set a good laugh.

During the ‘Rewritten Profile’ segment of the show, the ‘Tongue Fatty’ nickname was found on Junhyung’s profile, surprising MC’s Hyungdon and Defconn. Junhyung asked, “When you wake up in the morning, don’t you feel like your tongue is swollen?“, to which MC Hyungdon responded, “My tongue is always swollen, so I wouldn’t know“.

The writers of the show then produced a ruler and MC Hyungdon compared the thickness of his tongue to that of Junhyung’s. He commented, surprised by the difference, “You could use this as an individual talent on variety shows“, making everyone laugh.

B2ST signs contract to appear on ‘Weekly Idol’ again for next album release

Back in December, B2ST member Doojoon signed an official contract, promising that B2ST would feature on ‘Weekly Idol‘ when the group released their next album. He followed through on this promise as B2ST appeared on the last two episodes of ‘Weekly Idol’.

To reaffirm their next appearance on the show, it seems ‘Weekly Idol’ hilariously had each of the members sign an additional contract. The photo below was recently posted via Weekly Idol’s official Twitter with the words, “The highlight of today’s program! We could not simply send B2ST away like this, so in the end, we were able to happily end by obtaining two documents! What innocent young men they are ^_^ Is is true that you have a year-end comeback?

The actual contract read, ‘Weekly Idol Appearance Document – Because we feel our film session today was unfortunately short, we B2ST promise to gladly give one day of our next album promotions to ‘Weekly Idol’. We stress that the above conditions are not a penalty, but most definitely an award.’

The contract was then dated, and each of the members stamped their fingerprints to make it official. Don’t think any of the B2UTIES will mind seeing more of the boys!
