Recently, Hong Suk Chun made many headlines after sharing he's distantly related to a rookie idol star from SM Entertainment. However, he kept the idol's identity a secret as he didn't want to cause any harm to the rising star, but ultimately, the idol's identity was revealed on Channel A's 'Heard It Through the Grapevine'.
Hong Suk Chun stated, "I didn't reveal it on other shows because I wanted to save it for 'Heard It Through the Grapevine'. (The idol I'm related to is) Taeyong the most handsome member of NCT." He added, "I have never met him but I hope we meet comfortably one day."
Taeyong is the cousin of Hong Suk Chun's niece.
