In a past episode of Idol Room, the show hosts asked SEVENTEEN to create fan chants for the “Idol 999” group they were putting together on the show.
And SEVENTEEN, being the kings of fan chants, wouldn’t let the hosts down. Seungkwan decided he would help the show come up with a cool one, like SEVENTEEN have for all their songs!
Determined, Seungkwan began spitting out fire to Dino’s beatboxing.
The improvised fan chant included a couple of descriptive words added in front of the name of each “Idol 999” member. It was going quite smoothly…
Our winner Kang Seungyoon, promise us Baek Jiheon! Snowman Jung Seung Hwan, Somi Somi birthday Somi! Red flavored Seulgi Seulgi…
… until out of nowhere, it came turn to create a phrase for GFRIEND‘s Sowon, and Seungkwan blurted out something he may have regret saying.
My girlfriend Sowon!
Within seconds, the studio filled with chaos. Seungkwan’s fellow teammates cracked up at him putting his foot in his mouth, while the show hosts got ready to rip Seungkwan apart for “making it official” on Idol Room! Seungkwan was in pure panic over the colossal mistake he had just made:
Wait, what…? Your girlfriend…?
— Jung Hyung Do
Seungkwan then made all the effort to fix what just happened. But he said what he said, and what’s done was done! Carats can’t stop laughing at Seungkwan for telling the world that he has a girlfriend named Sowon…
No, no, no, no, no! That’s not what I meant!
… and GFRIEND’s fans are having a good time making fun of Seungkwan too. While Seungkwan tried to explain that he doesn’t even really know Sowon, both Carats and Buddies have already come to an agreement; they are going to be okay with Seungkwan x Sowon!
I barely know her, we say hello and that’s about it.
Because let’s face it, Sowon is gorgeous and she is everyone’s GFRIEND.
