Solo artist DAWN gave behind-the-scenes details on how his viral moment on stage with girlfriend HyunA actually went down.
On June 16, Dawn was a guest on SBS’s radio show Cultwo Show.
On this day the idol appeared wearing an outfit reminiscent of a teddy bear. Host Kim Tae Gyun complimented his outfit to which DAWN explained the outfit was for a schedule and how embarassed he felt wearing it.
I was supposed to change the outfit after my first schedule, but I didn’t have time to change. I thought it wouldn’t be embarassing, but coming in I saw a girl group and now I feel so embarrassed.
When asked if he was hot, DAWN explained that the glove and backpack he was wearing made the outfit a bit more bearable. Dawn then revealed all he had in his backpack were his KF94 masks.
Host Kim Tae Gyun then spoke about DAWN’s viral moment with HyunA on stage at a recent college performance.
Your performance with HyunA has gone viral. You didn’t just go up. You took your shirt off.
— Kim Tae Gyun
Dawn then revealed that his shirtless performance wasn’t his idea. In fact, the actor wanted to keep his shirt but it seems his girlfriend had other ideas.
I actually said no. I said I wasn’t going to do it, that I wasn’t going to my shirt off. Because HyunA kept telling me to do it, I didn’t want to. So HyunA got the dancers to take my shirt off me.
Dawn and HyunA recently lit the internet ablaze when the two hit the stage for a steamy rendition of their song “Ping Pong.”
DAWN will be releasing his latest single “Stupid Cool” on June 16. DAWN and his girlfriend HyunA recently announced their engagement on Instagram, showing their love is still going strong.
