On August 24th, a press conference was held at the Novotel Ambassador Hotel, where Leeteuk jokingly gave out his ratings on SISTAR’s maternal skills.
Leeteuk chose Hyorin as the best mom.
He explained, “Hyorin gets 85 points. She plays with him [the child] even when the cameras are off, and I can see that she has a lot of affection for him when she touches him.”
He continued, “Bora gets 84 points. She’s as good as Hyorin, but all four of them couldn’t be the mom, so Hyorin was picked as the first mom. But, because Bora was not picked as the first mom, she asked when they would make the decision again, which is why I deducted a point.”
Surprisingly, Leeteuk gave Soyu 20 points and Dasom just 5 points. He caused the crowd to laugh when he said, “Dasom is more like a friend for young Kyumin rather than a mom. They both whimper.”
Dasom replied, “I wanted to approach Kyumin as a friend. Rather than just talking with words, I wanted to have eye contact with him on the same level, which is why I whimpered,” and gave herself 90 points.
Leeteuk also stated, “I happily accepted the program invitation because I would be able to practice being a father beforehand. To be honest, I haven’t raised a child before, but I have raised a two month old cat for four years. I will use that experience and raise Kyumin with love.”
In addition, when asked about future marriage plans, Leeteuk revealed, “As I get older, I find myself liking women who are kind, realistic, and have set principles. Currently, I don’t have a girlfriend, but I think marriage is best at 36 or 37 years old.”
‘Hello Baby’ is a program where idol stars experience raising their own baby. Leeteuk and SISTAR will star in the fourth season of the series, following behind SNSD, SHINee, and T-ara who anchored the three previous seasons. 2-year-old Kyumin will interact with these first-time parents, and the program will focus on the education required for a child to become a future idol.
The show will air its first episode on September 2nd, so stay tuned!
