Crush was the latest guest on rapper Lee Young Ji‘s incredibly hysterical and honest show, and there was never a dull moment in the episode with Crush being so entertaining that even Lee Young Ji wanted tips. One moment that especially encapsulates the brutally entertaining honesty of the show was when Crush opened up about an extremely embarrassing moment in his career.
Lee Young Ji: I have a question. I heard that elementary kids followed you into the bathroom in the airport.
Crush: The airport poop incident.
Crush was at the airport to fly to Jeju Island for a performance and was surprised by how crowded their airport was.
Crush: I went to the Gimpo airport as I had a performance to do at Jeju Island. That day, although it was a weekday, the airport was very crowded. Young kids were wearing school bags and [running around].
Still, the singer went to the bathroom, not expecting anything out of the ordinary to happen.
Crush: So I ran to the bathroom and closed the bathroom door to poop.
But one of the students recognized the famous singer and announced it to the whole airport.
Crush: Suddenly from outside, one kid shouted “Hey! Crush went to the bathroom to poop!“
Ironically, not all of the students were familiar with the singer.
Crush: And then I heard “What is Crush?” [and] “He is a singer.“
But even though not all of the students knew who he was, that didn’t stop their excitement at getting to see a famous celebrity, and they followed him into the bathroom.
Crush: Then all the kids rushed into the bathroom. Someone shouted “He is a singer!” and I could see hands coming in under the bathroom door.
Rather than getting annoyed at them, Crush warned the students to leave the bathroom for obvious reasons.
Crush: I was like “please go out! Or else we will all die.” And it suddenly became quiet.
Lee Young Ji: Seems like they all went out.
Although the students, fortunately, left the bathroom, Crush was left hiding there for a while.
Crush: I had to stay in there for so long.
Lee Young Ji: I see.
Crush: Long enough for the poop to harden.
Fortunately, the singer waited long enough, and he thought everyone was gone when he left, only to find many adults and kids “holding phones” and waiting for him.
Crush: I opened the door and, thank god, there was no one outside. So I went outside the bathroom, and as if I were at a press conference…
Lee Young Ji: Oh my…
Crush: A while ago, there were only kids, but now there were adults holding phones and saying “Hey, Crush pooped there.”
Lee Young Ji couldn’t decide whether to laugh or cry over the story, admitting that it was obviously hysterical but recognizing how difficult it must have been to endure.
Lee Young Ji: It’s very funny but I can’t laugh.
Crush: It’s a funny and sad situation.
