Recently, a video by a twitter user that was about iKON attracted lots of attention.
The video was of iKON who were playing a game where they had to get people to say a particular word, a game many idols play.
iKON’s B.I. was given the word ‘heol’ which stands for OMG, or “are you kidding?” the word is used to express excitement or sheer shock.
So, he called his mother and played a ‘prank’ on her, he came out as gay; the members were dying in laughter while he was trying to convince his mother he was gay to get a reaction out of her, specifically the word ‘heol.’
“Mom, I actually like men!”
Here is a translation of the script as well as the video:
since they deleted the video and went on private (which i knew it was gonna happen) i screen recorded it 💆🏻♀️ pic.twitter.com/xGXEpuBdo3

In the end poor B.I. was not able to get his mother to say the sentence and he ended up losing the game.
Kpop fans have split opinions on this one, some saying it was a joke while others say it was homophobic of him, and there are others who are upset they are making a joke out of such a serious matter.
What do you think of this?
