3. He has a sensitive tummy.

We don’t know if it was pun intended, but Lee Kyu Hyung almost burned his tonkatsu breakfast. He makes an excuse that his tummy is sensitive hence it should be thoroughly cooked to cushion the kitchen mishap.

Lee Kyu Hyung digs on the hearty meal he prepared. He gets another round of laugh from the members when he pronounced his belief to keeping a healthy life when he just burned his tonkatsu.
