Boy band SHINee member Minho was injured yesterday during a recording for the second season of KBS sports entertainment show “Let’s Go! Dream Team.”

The 18-year-old singer, a regular on the Sunday morning program, had been taking part in a game when he fell off from a swinging poll and landed outside a styrofoam zone which had been set up for the safety of contestants.

[SJ] EUNHYUK GOT A SURPRISE KISS FROM A GIRL GUEST ON STAR KING

I must say that Eunhyuk did not expect this to happen.  You know why?  noticed when it was his turn, he had a few minutes of talking and planning (maybe) with the girl in the back before they actually had to act it out.  The girl literally made a pass on Hyukie, don’t you think?  It was a shocking and yet funny (for some) scene.  I wonder what would the reaction of the ELF’s would be and the HYUKIE lover’s out there.   Would they be enraged?  I would be.  He he he.   But the fact that this whole incident was unexpected for Eunhyuk’s side, I think I should just throw my anger away but BUT for the girl’s side? Hmmmm..that’s another story.

Sweetie Minho, thank God he didn’t got mesmerized by the girl’s bait (?).  He he he.

Oh well…
