INFINITE's L's online posts from the past when he was just a mere 'netizen' provided some laughter on the latest episode of 'Beatles Code 2'.

The members INFINITE were guests on the April 15th show and MC Shindong pulled out a panel where L had answered a question pertaining to debuting as a celebrity on an online community board. The post was dated back to 2008, when L was a normal 'netizen' on the internet.

The question was, "What should I do if I want to become a celebrity?". L had responded in detail, but Shindong pointed out a specific phrase where L answered, "The labels focus on your looks to a certain extent. SM Entertainment considers looks at about 60% and talent at around 40%. The labels that concentrate more on talent are JYP Entertainment and YG Entertainment."

Shindong then joked, "You criticized our label. You're telling us we have no talent", flustering L.

The segment begins around the 1:51 mark below!

    ...are there seriously new comments here? I cannot.

    Thankfully, there's copy & paste because people need to be properly educated, per the usual:.

    -

    L wrote this in a website board similar to Yahoo answers. In 2008. You see the year, ;2008? ;In the year ;2008, L wasn't L. He was Kim Myungsoo. A normal, every day non-trainee, who browsed the internet and help give advice. ;One particular web browsing day, Kim Myungsoo saw someone wanting to know which company they should audition in since the person dreamed to be a singer. ;Kim Myungsoo, who also dreamed to be a singer, gave his view points about how the ;scouting process ;of the big three companies worked. Let's read that again. ;Scouting progress. Let's take it slowly now for better understanding. ;Scouting. ;Process. ;When looking for potential trainees, the three big companies look for two things - talent and looks. Some companies tend to scout good looking people more than others. He felt SM focused just a tad bit more on looks when searching around for potentials. So he made a percentage of 60% looks and 40% talent balance. Which, when you actually use your brain and math, it's only a ;20% ;gap. ;In other words, ;it isn't even that fucking big. ;So let's go over that. He said that SM's ;scouting process ;tends to be 60% looks and 40% talent centered. ;Not that SM idols are untalented. He never said that. He stated that SM doesn't mind grabbing people over looks more often than not when browsing. ;He didn't say it was a bad thing, so I don't know why people freaked the hell out in the first place, he didn't insult, he didn't say anything about himself, he wasn't negative. ;You can take it however you will, but all trainees go to, uh, training. So even if they were picked by looks, that can be remedied and vice versa. It was just the ;scouting process. Everything can change, so there's a difference here to what they end up becoming (and let's not be in denial, it's damn true: ;http://netizenbuzz.blogspot.com/2013/06/instiz-interesting-idol-casting-stories.html ;). ;He also didn't leave out the rest of the big three. He said they ;ALL ;tend to go for looks in some way. ;He was a huge TVXQ fan at the time (2008), still is, and liked SNSD. So obviously there was no real issue. ;Beatles Code decided to dig up some past things that INFINITE members used to do. Hence, why they presented those answers of ;2008 ;netizen Kim Myungsoo. ;They all laughed good heartedly (Shindong was there, by the way) about it as L became embarrassed. It was Shindong who said jokingly if he was saying they were untalented. But that wasn't what L himself said. That's the crap AKP decided to translate (and badly at that).

    Do you all understand?
