Eunhyuk amused viewers and on-set guests alike as he cutely made a reference to his previous photo incident with singer IU.
On the January 15th broadcast of ‘Strong Heart,’ baseball player Lee Yong Kyu talked about how he received much attention during the 2009 World Baseball Classic, in the match between Korean and Japan. The opposing pitcher had thrown a ball that hit Lee Yong Kyu over the head, and he made immediately made headlines.
Eunhyuk statistically mentioned, “From March 5th, 2009 to the 24th during the WBC, Lee Yong Kyu was searched more than 1,950,000 times on portal sites. It’s exponentially more than Lee Min Ho‘s, whose drama ‘Boys Over Flowers‘ was ranked #1 in terms of ratings during the time.”
He continued on, joking, “My search ranking used to be 235th place… But now, it’s probably gone up a lot,” which hints at how his photo scandal raised his search ranking. The studio burst into laughter with Eunhyuk’s good-natured comment, and MC Shin Dong Yup feigned innocent as he asked, ”Just why did it go up?” as everyone laughed again.
