Eunhyuk also got a taste of culture shock from Henry.

He said, “at first, Henry called our SM founder, Lee Soo Man, ‘Mr Lee’ ” Henry replied, “I didn’t know who was that in the beginning, so I thought he was just the SM boss, so I said, ‘Hey, Mr Lee’ as a greeting. Then he handed me his name card, saying that I can contact him,” causing another round of laughter among the audiences.

Eunhyuk added, “even now, when Henry see Lee Soo Man Sunbaemin, he still uses his English greeting of ‘Mr Lee’ and Lee Soo Man will say, ‘We are all friends’ and he wouldn’t be mad”
