Wonho’s playful answers to fans’ raunchy tweets made the steamy interview format ‘wholesome’
With idols being quite reserved as the K-pop industry is conservative, no one could have guessed that they would be making appearances on BuzzFeed’s raunchy segment ‘Thirst Tweets’. But quite a few idols — from Jay Park and Jessi to Eric Nam and GOT7’s Jay B — have appeared on this fun promotional series. The latest idol to appear for the segment happens to be none other than Wonho who released his third EP ‘Blue Letter’ last month.
With one of the best bodies in K-pop, fans and non-fans alike have a soft spot for the tender-hearted idol. The all-rounder continues to amaze his fans as Wonho showed a bright and youthful side in his latest music video ‘Blue’. He brought the same energy to the BuzzFeed video for their ‘Thirst Tweet’ segment, engaging with playful and flirty responses to fans’ racy tweets about his looks and body.

What is BuzzFeed’s ‘Thirst Tweets’?
To make promotional videos like interviews interesting, BuzzFeed has a ‘Celebrities Read Thirst Tweets’ series. In it, artists read and react to thirsty tweets written by their fans. Thirsty tweets are raunchy posts made on Twitter by a user to show their excitement and appreciation for a celebrity and are mostly NSFW (not safe for work). Fans get a kick out of it when their favorites react to it. But instead of getting awkward, Wonho went with the flow, answering in a cheeky and playful manner as he read about fans talking about his abs and butt.

One of the tweets said, “I just wanna kiss wonho on the forehead and tell him he’s doing amazing work.” To this he responded, “Can you…thank you.” But then immediately in the next tweet that said, “The only guy idols i wanna see do sexy concepts are wonho…and thats it,” Wonho got playful as he said, “Yes, exactly.” His duality was evident as he replied, “If you want I can try,” to a tweet asking him to crush the fan with his thighs. Towards the end of the segment, he also said, “the biggest of all is my love for you all.”
