He shared that while on a solo trip to the East Coast of the United States, he was approached and hit on by a gay man in New York. He revealed, “I was traveling in New York alone. I can’t speak English that well but I went to New York by myself… ㅋㅋ But I saw a lot of performances and had so much fun. I’ll tell you the stories in New York~ I got hit on by a man ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I was so surprised. He said I have a beautiful smile and kept hitting on me ㅋㅋ There are a lot of people like this in the US. I have a new nickname!”Beautiful smile” ㅋㅋ He called me “beautiful smile~” as he asked for my phone number ㅋ”
Fans have left various comments expressing that they understand where the man was coming from:
“Ryeowook looks very feminine ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He’s so likeable ㅠㅠ”
