WINNER's Song Min Ho (Mino) criticized for calling Korea an archipelago during the '2014 SBS Gayo Daejun'

winner, Song Min Ho (Mino)
WINNER's Song Min Ho (Mino) is being criticized for calling Korea an archipelago.

Song Min Ho was one of the MCs for the '2014 SBS Gayo Daejun,' which was unfortunately fraught with problems. There was an audio error 10 minutes into the show, and the camera kept pointing elsewhere. Taeyang also forgot his lyrics during his collaboration stage with Jeff Bernat

However, out of all the mistakes of the night, viewers were the most disappointed when Song Min Ho said, "The Korean archipelago was shaken." Many were surprised he could have made the mistake because Korea is a peninsula, not an archipelago. The mistake might have earned a little more criticism because the word 'archipelago' in Korean is usually associated with Japan.

However, his mistake may be understandable because the word in Korean for archipelago (yeol-do) is similar to the word for peninsula (ban-do).
