Jessi is making headlines for revealing the reason why she shed tears because of Yoo Jae Suk and other Running Man members.
Jessi recently featured as a guest on KBS CoolFM‘s Kang Han Na’s Volume Up, where she discussed her most recent comeback track, “What Type of X.” Her song has quickly gone on to become a hit with its catchy beat and fun dance moves. Her dance eventually became a fun challenge amongst TikTok users, as well as other K-Pop artists. Psy, Hwasa, Psy, Hwasa, Jay Park, Kim Heechul and more uploaded their versions with Jessi, creating a bigger wave with the challenge.
Naturally, the topic of her song and its dance challenge came up during her time on the radio show. The radio show DJ asked Jessi,
A lot of people have been participating in the ‘What Type of X’ challenge. Is there one that sticks out to you the most?
— Radio show DJ Kang Han Na
Jessi showed her loyalty by sharing that it was none other than the cast members of Running Man that stood out to her most!
Honestly for me, Jae Suk oppa did one with ‘Running Man’ members, So Min unnie and Se Chan oppa. The three of them filmed one and sent it to me. I was really touched.
Jessi, being Jessi then hilariously shared her honest reaction at watching the three Running Man members do her challenge.
They were not good at dancing.
The “What Type of X” singer confessed, however, that it didn’t matter if they were not blessed with the dancing gene, but that their hearts were enough for her.
Even though they weren’t good, it was their thought that counted. I was so grateful.
Jessi went even a little further by confessing that their video actually made her cry!
She shared that she while she texted Yoo Jae Suk to relay her gratitude, she couldn’t help but shed some tears.
I texted him (Yoo Jae Suk) ‘oppa’ while crying. I said ‘come on!’ and he said ‘come on!’ I was seriously so touched by them.
We love Jessi’s relationship with Yoo Jae Suk and the rest of the Running Man members! Their love and adoration for one another are goals. You can watch Jessi talk about the touching moment down below.
