A netizen asked what male idols think of being waxed by a female.

Lately, a lot of male idols get Brazilian waxing. What do you think of a female waxer doing it?

— Netizen comment, “AYO”

According to Sukjeong, they view it as a routine activity that doesn’t hold any meaning to them.

We get this a lot, but we wax feeling like a doctor at a hospital, so we’re not really thinking of anything.

— Sukjeong

Jin agreed and shared how there are occasions when male idols are embarrassed, so they ask for a male waxer.

There’s nothing special for male idols. Sometimes, they feel too embarrassed, and say they can’t get it from a female waxer, then a male waxer does it.

— Jin

In actuality, however, most surprisingly prefer female waxers because it would be “more shameful” to show themselves to a male waxer.

But actually, most males prefer a female waxer over a male waxer, saying it’s more shameful to show it to a man, and they ask for a female waxer.

— Jin

Sukjeong ended by explaining another reason why they ask for females.

Generally, female waxers have more experience, so I think they prefer female waxers more.
