On the May 20 episode of “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook,” Urban Zakapa, Roy Kim, Samuel Seo, and VIXX appeared as guests.
MC Yoo Hee Yeol announced at the beginning of the show that the episode would feature artists known to sell out concerts in honor of fans without the time or money to attend concerts in person.
VIXX began their performance with their remake track “Love Equation” on their first performance on “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” in three years. Leader N said, “We really wanted to have a chat with our teacher Yoo Hee Yeol,” but Yoo Hee Yeol objected to the formal honorific and joked, “We’re not that far apart in age so call me hyung.”
Referencing VIXX’s reputation as “concept idols,” Yoo Hee Yeol asked them to pick their most shocking concept. The members went with their infamous performance of “Hyde” with black lipstick and commented that for a long time their nickname was “chunjang [thick black soybean paste used in jajangmyun] idols.”
VIXX, who recently completed their solo concert “Daydream,” also talked about their conception dreams. Conception dreams are dreams that expecting parents have about the upcoming birth of their child and are thought to be portentous of the child’s future. Many dreams are about symbolic animals such as dragons, tigers, golden toads, etc.
N said, “Mine was about a chestnut. All my friends had really cool dreams but mine was a chestnut, so I cried a lot.” Yoo Hee Yeol said commiseratingly, “Mine was about a boy picking flowers dressed as a princess on a field in Switzerland.”
VIXX also performed their new comeback song “Shangri-La” and demonstrated the signature points of their fan dance.
