On the latest episode of MBC’s Radio Star, Mino shared an exciting story about his exhibition at an Austrian Royal Palace and a naughty tattoo on his back.
Recently, the K-pop star had his work exhibited at London’s Saatchi Gallery. He said, “It was such an honor to have my work presented at the show.” He also mentioned that he was invited to another art show held in Austria. He stated, “I wanted to get acknowledged for my work.”
Then the star shared what had happened at the venue, gushing about the comments he heard about his work: “So, an artist came up to me at the show and said, ‘I feel very ashamed right now because I got a little offended by seeing your name on the artist list. But now I regret having that thought in my mind because your work just blew me away on so many levels. Keep up the good work, and I hope to see you around.”
When he was asked if there were any meanings to his tattoos, the South Korean rapper replied, “I wanted something unique. People usually get tattoos of English words and phrases. I found them too common and lame, so I got Korean phrases tattooed on me. I have a tattoo that says ‘Mental clarity and good posture’ on my back in Korean. And I also have an image of a stamp that says, ‘You did a good job’ on my arm.” He also boasted, “If you look at the stamp, you can see five stars below. Those five stars symbolize our five WINNER members, so I got that tattoo to celebrate our 5th anniversary.”
The star also revealed the story about the tattoo he regrets most: “I have a tattoo I wish I never had. When I was 27 years old, I wanted to become someone who enjoys every moment. So I had the Korean word ‘Playboy’ tattooed on my lower back.” Jun Hyun Moo bursted into laughter and said, “Goodness gracious, that’s something I can’t imitate.”
