On February 29 KST, VIXX’s Hongbin held a live broadcast on Twitch to celebrate his channel’s one year anniversary. What was supposed to be a celebration, turned into a disaster in the end.
Hongbin was heavily intoxicated during the broadcast and acted rude towards viewers as well as fellow idol groups.
Below are a list of groups he bashed on during his live broadcast.
While watching SHINee’s performance of “Everybody,” he commented, “Who mixes this kind of idol music with band music? It sucks.”

You wanna know something cute? SM teaches you everything from every gesture to every move. There will be someone that teaches you the gestures and someone that doesn’t. They break down each person. But we (VIXX) produce everything ourselves.
While watching EXO‘s “Wolf,” he states that the ones who remain are the ones who win.
“I’m sorry but I’ve always been a vampire and these people (EXO) were wolves. It was always funny to me because vampires always won. In history, the people who remain are the ones who win. In modern day, when comparing who will win between vampires (VIXX) and wolves (EXO), I think its vampires. Try and keep up. Ah~sad to say that there is no one that can keep up to us. I mean there is no one from the wolves that can keep up.”

While listening to a Red Velvet remix he criticizes them for their strong color of music.
“Ew This is too much of a mania level it’s too idol-like. The color is too strong. Don’t you know what mass appeal means? YouTube is mass appeal since everyone watches it but your choice was a failure.”

While watching INFINITE’s “Be Mine” he comments that he would have beaten the choreographer for the routine.
Wow… Personally, I would have beaten the choreographer for that routine. What is that… That’s a cool song. Why would anyone choreograph that kind of dance to such a cool part?

In a previous broadcast, he watched ONF‘s “Moscow,” and criticized the song for sounding dated.
“This seems like an old song. The instruments used in it make it sound old. I thought it was a high energy song but I’m disappointed that it wasn’t.”
After hearing the reasoning behind the title being called “Moscow,” he states, “What a shame there isn’t even a real meaning behind it. They could have just called it ‘Cheongdam’ instead then.”

Hongbin has since then streamed again to apologize for his words and actions.
