Moon Hee Jun talks about the strict prohibitions on music programs H.O.T endured in the past

News via allkpop.com

He revealed, "During H.O.T times, you couldn"t wear earrings or dye your hair. Honestly, I didn"t let it bother me at first. However, as time passed, we became the group to represent the teens, so I thought I had to fight these prohibitions. If you had dyed hair, you had to either spray it black or cover it with a bandana. I thought that I had to fight so that my juniors could be on TV with dyed hair. That"s why I dyed my hair in 7 different colors, performed on stage, and even caused a broadcasting accident. After I worked hard like that, the regulation on dyed hair was lifted. Right now, G-Dragon can dye his entire natural hair color thanks to my diligence and efforts when I was young."

For further elaboration, Moon Hee Jun said that because of H.O.T, even bandanas became prohibited. He revealed that when he went on stage with a bandana, it came loose, revealing his dyed hair and earring. He also said this was actually a bit intentional, which is why he had only tied the bandana once. After he got off stage, there was chaos. The broadcasting accident resulted in the boys" one year prohibition from that broadcasting station.

He revealed that Lee Soo Man had reacted very coolly. Moon Hee Jun imitated Lee Soo Man by saying, "Yeah. If they can"t understand your fashion, you need to fight no matter what," showing his general indifference.
