On January 13, it was reported that Hwang kissed a man without hesitation while he was wearing makeup in a greenroom despite the fact that there were many people like his stylists and idol group members in the same room. Other people that were in the same room, including Davichi’s Kang Min Kyung, all observed the situation.
A person who reported this said, “It later transpired that it was just one of the happenings on the set. Kwang Hee was about to shoot a kissing scene with Kang Min Kyung. But Kang was being too shy about it, and he made a mark in advance with male staff member’s lips in order to relieve her burden.”
He also said, “Kwang Hee seemed like he was embarrassed about it at first, saying it was the first time for him to kiss a man. But he was bold enough to shoot the scene as if nothing happened.”
Hwang is currently appearing on SBS TV’s The Law of the Jungle and MBN’s daily sitcom Vampire Idol.
