Produce X 101 idol trainee Kwon TaeEun definitely has succeeded in one thing that all other trainees hope to do. And that is to make sure that the viewers and judges remember who you are by standing out among the rest of the pack.
However, while it is likely that the viewers and the judges will now remember Kwon TaeEun quite well, the reason for it isn’t exactly the best.
For starters, many people who were present during the performance had difficulty containing their laughter.
One of the judges, Lee SeokHoon, was the only person who was able to maintain a serious composure. And it turns out that there was a solid reason behind why he was so serious. Apparently, Lee SeokHoon didn’t know whether Kwon TaeEun was goofing around or being serious, and was vocal about his dissatisfaction with the quality of the performance.
Lee SeokHoon stated:
“I found nothing funny or amusing about it at all. In all honesty, I was rather offended. If you had really put some thought in to the song and practiced it seriously, it would not have turned out the way it did.”
Below are some of the comments from netizens.
“The dancing..the singing..it’s all very…is he really a trainee?”
“Seriously, f***ing terrible…If he really picked ‘Siren’ and did it seriously and it ended up like this, I don’t know, but it looks like he picked it to be funny.”
“F*** This is a landmine of laughter.”
“This causes so much discomfort…why is he laughing..it also seems like he’s looking down on women..I agree with Lee SeokHoon, makes me feel so uncomfortable.”
“One should be serious on stage, but I can’t help but think he’s just goofing around…”
