On the December 27 airing of MBC's 'Radio Star', the MCs asked the rookie idol, "There are rumors saying you're a 'golden spoon' (a term referring to someone born in a wealthy family)."
Kwon Hyun Bin replied, "Me?" then added, "When I was young, I studied abroad and did live pretty wealthy when I was younger. I think people also said that because I played a sport and modeled."
Fellow guest Kim Soo Yong commented, "Isn't it also because your fan gave you brand name gifts?" Kwon Hyun Bin responded, "That's something that I've heard too. A fan of mine proved she voted for me and said she'll give me a brand name bag. She also posted that her wealth adds up to 9,300,000,000 KRW (8.6 million USD)."
