Actor Kwak Dong Yeon explained why he doesn't like going on variety shows. 

In a recent interview, Kwak Dong Yeon revealed that he's been scared of variety shows ever since he named or rather he was pressured to pick Kim So Hyun as his ideal type on 'Radio Star'. 

It was a child actor special when he guested on the show with Kim Yoo Jung and Kim So Hyun. When asked about his ideal type, he originally named actress Han Ji Min but was asked to choose between Kim Yoo Jung and Kim So Hyun.

This experience must've not been pleasant as Kwak dong Yeon said, "To be honest, I avoid variety shows because I'm scared. On 'Radio Star', I couldn't resist and picked Kim So Hyun as my ideal type, and since then, it's been portrayed as if I like Kim So Hyun and it created misunderstandings. I was also hurt a lot [on variety shows]. Nothing is promised on variety shows, so I'm afraid of sudden situations. I don't know what questions I'll be asked so I might make a verbal mistake, and I also don't have confidence in terms of humor."

He further explained, "For 'I Live Alone', I told my label that I don't want to go on it at first. It was unfamiliar to think that many people will be watching my daily life. But I was told that they will simply film my day and air it after editing so that's how I got to be on it. I'll go on variety shows that I can enjoy without making mistakes, but the ones where I have to create stories are hard."

I blame FNC before on why KDY wasn't in more variety shows. I always thought they have the power and connection to have him guest in more variety shows but he don't go ti any variety shows for like the past 2 years. Now it's seems that it was him after all who is turning down variety guestings. LOL I am sorry I blame FNC!! Haha

poor boy. that radio star episode was like 2 to 3 years ago so he was so young back then so i bet it was stressing to be asked that kind of question and he just answered out of pressure. idk why the mcs would ask that kind of question to a child. i mean it's called child actor special for a reason, right? they were fvckin kids! it's a shame bcs i wanted to see him more in variety shows but now that he's scared of it... nvm, i'll just see him in dramas. hwaiting kwak dong yeon!

He should avoid Radio Star because they will really put pressure on you to answer their questions no matter what there. Maybe he should to Running Man or 1N2D they are kinder and don't normally pressure guest to answer such questions and their more in playing games.

Well, Radio star is not that easy even to those who are used to varieties

Honestly though, for someone who is not used to variety shows, Radio Star may not be a good place for them until they have more experience

But KSH really seems to be his ideal type considering that he picked her like 3 times already. It's funny because one of his close friends jiwoo is best friends with sohyun. I wonder if they have ever met through their friend.

Didn't he said that that's why he hate 'creating stories' because he already pick KSH in Radio Star by force and people already thinks he likes her so he have no choice but to stick with it. And that is why he do not want to go to variety shows anymore. That is how I understand his explanation when I watch the show.
