BTOB's Sungjae had the best response to the dating rumors involving DIA's Jooeun.
On August 13, BTOB went live on Naver V Live for 'Talk Mukbang Party'. The live broadcast took place just several hours after Sungjae and Jooeun's dating rumors made headlines.
During the airing, Eunkwang said, "BTOB has reached #3 on the real-time search engines!"
BTOB was the hot topic of the day on the web due to Sungjae's dating rumors.
Sungjae, who was well aware of this fact, indirectly mentioned the issue, and left a savage comment, saying, "Wow, BTOB is dominating the real-time search engines today." Fellow members burst into laughter. With sarcasm, Sungjae added, "It must be because of our V live!"
Sungjae then drank out of his plastic cup. On the bottom of the cup was a secret message of strong denial. The message stated, 'muk-keum', which is a slang popularly used by teens, meaning 'don't feed the worthless rumors'.
