On the March 2 episode of 'New Yang Nam Show', Eunkwang surprised the members of Red Velvet with an unexpected call during the show.
He introduced himself and revealed, "There is something I really want to say. I want to apologize to Seulgi for unmannerly mentioning her as my ideal type on a different broadcast." He explained, "I really wanted to say this because it could've been unpleasant to my fans, Seulgi's fans, as well as Seulgi herself."
In response, Seulgi kindly said, "No, no, not at all."
Back in August 2016, Eunkwang said he had an interest in Seulgi on KBS 2TV's 'Happy Together 3'.
