"When 2PM debuted, TVXQ and Shinhwa seniors had made their comebacks and Wonder Girls and Big Bang were still promoting. We were in the car after work to go home but our director called us in a rush and asked us if we had greeted Shinhwa's Lee Minwoo. I told him that I had greeted him before but the director said, 'He said you didn't. Hurry and come.' Lee Minwoo then told us, 'You guys need to greet properly.' Since then, we had an opportunity to shoot a variety with him at Jeju Island and he was really good to us."


1. [+447, -39] That's why you need to bow/greet well. It's just something you have to do in the working world. Whether you greet someone properly makes up at least 50% of your first impression.

2. [+415, -30] I know people get really fussy about bowing but if you think about it the other way, it's really something so easy and simple to do. Just do it once and it makes it easier for everyone so why not just do it...

3. [+324, -23] Chansung gave it to him good ㅋㅋ

4. [+39, -4] Whether you argue that bowing is right or wrong, you have to admit that you have more to gain than lose by bowing to someone, especially if they work in your industry. If your eyes meet someone, just bow immediately and it opens an opportunity for them to start conversation or get to know you. You really have nothing to lose.

5. [+35, -11] Chansung-ah, don't mess with Shinhwa... Shinhwa Changjos are foaming at the mouth over you right now.. sigh

6. [+34, -7] Wow, so if you don't greet a senior, they'll even get in contact with your director...

7. [+32, -5] Seems like it was just a misunderstanding. They thought they greeted him, he thought he wasn't greeted... what's it matter if they're all friends now~

8. [+23, -5] My grandfather always told me that no one will ever slap you for bowing to them... so always bow first no matter where you go

9. [+4, -1] The situation sounds a lot like Chansung is screwing Lee Minwoo over by revealing this story but Chansung-ah, why don't you think from the position of a senior? Imagine if one of your juniors passed by without acknowledging you? You'd feel like sh*t, right? I used to avoid bowing to people too when I was younger because I didn't want to get involved with certain people but now that I'm older, it's not the way to go. It's better for everyone to just greet them and keep relationships going. You have nothing to lose.

10. [+3, -1] A weird culture that only exists in Korea... why does anyone younger immediately have to bow?
