[Star Cast] WINNER’s naïve 5 boys simply full of charms

WINNER excited the fans by unveiling their boyish charms.

On Sept 16, through Naver WINNER’s TALK & LIVE was aired live through Star Cast. The five made the fans laugh with their witty talks, singing and many more.

The conversation started lightly by sharing their impressions of each other, and the five were already playful. They each gave a nickname to each other like “unlimited charms,” “class rep,” “pet dog,” “eehee” and “prince.” They joked and complimented each other, showing a great bond among the members.

At a live session, the members sang different songs under the title “WINNER’s songs you want to listen to in Autumn,” including tracks like “Don’t Flirt,” “Officially Missing You,” “But,” and “Different.” Although there were no instruments played in the background and each song was short, WINNER did their best. In “Different,” SONG MIN HO made a small mistake, but he sang it again perfectly at the end of the show.

They weren’t only playful. They each talked about the turning points in their lives, and for most it was Mnet’s “WHO IS NEXT: WIN.” That was the survival program that gathered them into a group and gave birth to WINNER ultimately. They also wrote a video-letter, to their future selves, into 5 years. They appreciated their current state and it warmed the hearts of many as they were having these talk genuinely

But towards the end, WINNER truly showed that they are not just sentimental boys, but are extremely upbeat and playful. In a section called “Show Yourself,” they each showcased a talent of their own. From NAM TAE HYUN’s slightly awkward magic show to KIM JIN WOO’s imitation of a razor, LEE SEUNG HOON’s “mouth guitar,” SONG MIN HO’s impersonation of Kim Hye Soo in the film Tazza, to KANG SEUNG YOON’s guitar made the viewers laugh. They reacted explosively at each other’s talents, again making many laugh.

The highlight was when they unveiled their “cute” sides. Fans must have been very pleased to see such a different side of the boys, something they do not get to see on TV when they sing all sentimentally and seriously.

WINNER, at the end of the show, thanked the viewers and the fans. “We will bring you songs that make you the WINNER,” was their final comment. They touched many hearts by telling their honest stories but overall, what stood out most were their hidden talents.

Today WINNER will appear on KBS 2TV’s Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook, and will kick off their Japan tour from Sept 23 starting from Sapporo, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka and Tokyo.

[ARTICLE] WINNER Says, “Actually We Wrote What to Say After Taking No.1”

WINNER has officially talked about their first No.1 in music show.

From 11pm on the 16, “Meeting on an Autumn Night! WINNE TALK & LIVE” was aired on STARCAST of NAVER, in which boy group WINNER (SONG MIN HO, KANG SEUNG YOON, LEE SEUNG HOON, KIM JIN WOO, and NAM TAE HYUN) appeared to talk about a variety of their episodes and stage a live performance.

In the show, KANG SEUNG YOON said, “We could take the No.1 all thanks to our fans’ great support and love. However, we were very much surprised when we took the No.1, so we actually did not express our feelings right at that time. So, I would like to talk about that today”.

KIM JIN WOO said he was not able to talk about what he felt at that time, and showed a piece of paper, stating, “Actually, I wrote about what I would say if we take the No.1. Maybe, I had too big expectations”.

Notably, KIM JIN WOO read the piece of paper out, “I really thank YANG HYUN SUK who have had confidence in us for a long time, President YANG MIN SUK, and our fans. We also thank our family and parents. If it were not for WINNER staff, we wouldn’t be here now”.
