As reported, the SHINee member guested on the SBS program as a special MC. During the show, Minho mentioned his real-life older brother who was "always ahead of him in every way." He said, "There's a two-year age difference between us, but the gap has always been greater than that in other aspects. My brother was always more studious, better at sports, and was more popular. And he's too handsome."
When Minho shared a photo of his brother, Seo Jang Hoon said, "Wow, he looks like an idol."
Minho agreed that it was natural for his brother to be that popular. "My mother always told me to follow the footsteps of my brother," said the idol. He also revealed that his brother graduated from the prestigious Seoul National University with a degree in physical education.
"I never went near the top 10 academic ranks at school, but my brother always ranked high. I was always jealous, but also really annoyed. We attended middle school together, and while I was happy to receive even just a few sweets on Pepero Day or Valentine's Day, my brother would always come home with bundles of gifts."
Minho concluded that his brother is thus the source of his competitive spirit and that there were many times they fought as siblings. Netizens who watched this episode left comments such as:
"Wow.....his brother is so handsome. Crazy genes."
"Actually, when I heard that Director Cho (soccer coach)'s son was debuting, I thought it would be the older son."
"I can't believe that this family was endowed with two handsome and talented sons"
"They don't look alike but they both look 'expensiveeeeeeee'"
"Their parents must be so proud of both of them!"
