SHINee‘s Minho, ZE:A‘s Dongjun, DMTN‘s Simon, and BTOB‘s Minhyuk put on one of the fiercest competition of the Idol Star Athletics Championship during the 70m hurdles race!
Minho, known for his extremely athletic abilities and competitive spirit, has a history dominating the hurdles race, and he was again the favorite to win gold. He however expressed his nervousness in competing against Simon and Dongjun, who have been his rivals since previous times.
In the beginning of the race, Minho jumped a bit too early probably due to nerves, and his early jump caused him to land prematurely and trip over the hurdle, putting him out of the contending for a medal. His disqualification shocked everyone, including the professional commentators, who had expected Minho to win the event, and instead, underdog, rookie Minhyuk, came in to steal the show.
Host and fellow labelmate, B2ST‘s Yoseob had viewers laughing as he commented, “I never knew someone from our agency would win a gold medal.” He also asked Minhyuk to ask their CEO for a favor, and when Minhyuk simply asked their boss to use BTOB for as many opportunities as he could, Yoseob whispered, “No, you’re going to be used anyways, ask for something more.. like meat, ask for meat.” Minhyuk then asked, “Actually, could you treat all of us out to a meal?” pleasing his fellow labelmates.
