Which Shinhwa member won first place for having the worst speaking skills?
The May 19th broadcast of jTBC‘s ‘Shinhwa Broadcast‘ featured the episode ‘Speech Channel – The God of Words’, in which the members of Shinhwa compete against each other in speech challenges to win the title as the “God of Words”.
Prior to starting the competition, the producer of ‘Shinhwa Broadcast’ created a seating chart ranking the Shinhwa members from 1st place to 6th place. The members tried to figure out what the ranking was based on considering that Andy was in first place, Hyesung in second, Dongwan in third, Eric in fourth, Junjin in fifth, and Minwoo in last place.
Subsequently, the producer revealed that the ranking was based on the title, ‘The Member Who Can’t Speak’. Andy looked pestered upon realizing that he won first place for being the worst speaker.
Minwoo read aloud the producer’s explanation for each member’s ranking, sharing, ”Andy [for first place] — he tries really hard to talk, but I can’t understand what he’s talking about. He talks to himself and then laughs to himself.“ Correspondingly, clips of Andy giving a nonsense answer during an interview and talking and laughing to himself in his car were played to prove the producer’s point.
Next, Minwoo continued, “Hyesung — he’s better than Andy. Dongwan — he is known as the wit guy, however, Eric seems to hate his wit. Eric — he talks well to the Shinhwa members and Gomdori (his dog) but he can’t talk to other people. Junjin — he’s funny and has good timing, but he keeps trying to copy Eric. Minwoo — he is funny and speaks surprisingly well. It was seriously a surprise. A surprise…”
