    I saw the ep when he was educating the members on the different types of rap music that exists and some of his info was wrong, like basic info, it was embarrassing

    He's been know to shout the n word, he claims he has a black soul because his bottom lip is thick, he's appropriated the black culture and claimed it as his swag, he's been slightly misogynistic and homophobic, he's preached false information on hip hop It's culture and where it stems from, he's also participated in a skit that used blackface, and we can't for get his confederate flag (though his ignorance isn't his fault)

    His idea of trap music is wrong. Trap is slang for where drugs are sold thus trap music is about drugs and gangbanging (zico said trap is about partying and showing off which isnt exactly wrong but thats what you could say mainstream rap is about instead of trap). He said trap music is like, he actually rapped a musical example but to explain what he did it was just him rapping a deep voice and saying the words in a stretched out pauses aka the "is that true yes! okey dokey yo" and "Ride! Ride! Lets ride together" thingy he did which isnt necessarily true. Trap music would be something like Wacka Flacka - Hard in the paint or T.I. - Rubber band man. However im not sure if can fault him for that because it seems like thats what Koreans rappers think what the whole genre of trap is.

    Also another trap song that i forgot to write is the complete opposite of his definition: Young Jeezy ft Akon - Soul Survivor

    God, I should've been more specific, I meant in that episode of the show, because you guys were talking about him having false info about hip hop. I've been his fan for a while, I know everything you said, the "n word" was part of Drake's original song and he stopped actually saying it during performances when he was called out, contrary to popular belief. Also, everyone that gets even mildly close to hip hop in Korea has ended up appropriating it, let's be honest. "Preached false information on hip hop", okay, if you want to hold onto the ratchet music thing. He's never done blackface himself so why even fault him for what SNL and other random actors did. Yes I know there are valid mess he's been involved in, but seriously... And I also hope this doesn't turn into an embarrassment because these comedians don't take hip hop seriously at all- if they do anything related to it, especially in the motherland.... :P

    Okay well, maybe he was trying to keep it rated G (mentioning drugs etc isn't a good look in Korea, let's be real) and explain things as simplistically as possible, nobody on the program was there to actually learn about hip hop, let's be real, lol. I'm sure he understands a bit more about it than the easy-to-digest way he shared it on the show. Obviously he and the whole of K-hip hop could stand to gain more education about hip hop culture just in general but, meh, he's not stupid either, not like he said anything to the level of "hip hop is not showering".
