The group was on Hongki's 'Kiss the Radio', where they were reading messages from fans who were listening to the radio show. One of the messages was, "A friend's friend is working part time at a restaurant that sells meat. She said Seventeen came to the store."
While Hongki read, Seventeen seemed to already get what the message was about, as they said, "Ah, this," and "This is kind of daebak". Hongki continued to read, "Their bill came out to 1,470,000 KRW (approximately 1240 USD)." He commented, "What did you guys eat?!"
Mingyu explained, "We had meat that day. It was a company dinner, and we ate a lot. After we finished, we said, 'How much did the bill come out to be?' The amount that came out was what you just said - 1,470,000 KRW. We ate Korean beef. Our CEO bought it for us."
To this, Hongki joked, "You guys should have eaten more then! If it was 13 members, two managers, and some staff, it must have been about 20 people." The members clarified, "No, it was less than 20. The staff didn't come with us. It was two-three managers [and us]." Hongki was shocked, but laughed and said, "I understand because you're at that age where you eat a lot and grow a lot."
