Webtoon artist and 'I Live Alone' panelist Gian84 is currently at the center of criticism after the variety show's latest broadcast on April 5.
On this broadcast, model/actor Sung Hoon returned to the runway for the first time in 6 years, as the head model of a fashion show at the Seoul Fashion week. Gian84 attended the fashion show as an audience member in order to cheer his fellow 'I Live Alone' cast member on; however, once the show began, the webtoon artist caused loud disturbances by laughing, calling out Sung Hoon's name, and behaving inappropriately.
Sung Hoon walked out on the runway a total of 3 times, and during Sung Hoon's first walk, Gian84 burst into laughter and commented, "Is that really Sung Hoon hyung?". Once Sung Hoon emerged again, Gian84 cried out, "Sung Hoon hyung!" as the actor passed by him.
Model/actress Kim Sung Ryung and singer/actor Jinyoung, who were sitting to Gian84's left and right, also laughed at the webtoon artist's behavior at first, but eventually couldn't hide their shock at Gian84's actions.
Watching the footage from the studio, fellow cast members Lee Si Un, Park Na Rae, and Henry also pointed out the severity of Gian84's actions. Gian84 explained, "I was trying to cheer him on like you cheer on a soccer game..." Henry responded to this with, "This is completely different from soccer. This is very serious. It's like you cheered people on during a classical music show. I've been to a lot of fashion shows, but I've never seen anyone calling names like that before."
Lee Si Un and Park Na Rae also agreed with Henry's criticism, and after hearing his fellow cast members' comments, Gian84 admitted, "Now that I see myself, I was causing a disturbance." The webtoon artist also apologized to Sung Hoon and the viewers.
After the fashion show, Sung Hoon also expressed his shock, with, "That drove me nuts. It's not like I can answer him if he calls me [during the runway]."
