The October 27 broadcast of tvN's 'Life Bar' welcomed Henry and SHINee's Taemin to the show where Henry reflected back on his trainee days.


After Henry talked about his flight to Korea from Canada, he asked Taemin,  "How did we communicate back then?" His fellow SM artist responded, "The first thing I taught Henry hyung was how to curse in Korean," causing much laughter.

Hearing this, Henry went on, "I was kind of arrogant coming from Canada wearing my sunglasses and trying to look cool.  So when I insisted I wasn't going to learn how to dance, my teacher said 'you are a (좆)밥 (jotbap or an extremely idiotic person).' I asked, 'What is jotbap?' The teacher said, 'You!' So the first Korean word I ever learned was jotbap.  From then on, I tried to do my best.  That's why I like rice (rice is 밥 or bap in Korean)."


Henry also mentioned how Taemin was passionate to learn back then, "He (Taemin) was always in the rehearsal studio, practicing his poppin' dance."
