Brazilian soccer player? *confused*
Haha he had a hair cut there…
On the episode of MBC TV’s Cover Dance Festival K-POP Roadshow 40120, MBLAQ members visited Brazil, the country of Samba.
In this episode, MBLAQ visited fan Luana’s house, and Luana shed tears and said, “K Pop has been a great comfort to me during my gloomy childhood after the divorce of my parents.”
Especially, Luana, who works as a hairdresser, cut Mir’s hair on the spot. Mir’s new hair looked like that of Brazilian soccer player Neymar and gave a good laugh.
Other members responded: “You look like Beckham.” “You look like a sea horse.” Mir gave a bracelet as a gift and created a friendly atmosphere.

MBLAQ members G.O and Mir spent two weeks in Peru doing some volunteer work for “Dream of Koica” celebrating its 50 year anniversary of services around the world .
The boys and a large number of volunteers traveled literally to the other side of the world in order to help on different areas like culture, education, medicine, sports and more.
It took them 26 hours to go from Korea to Peru making it a really long and tiring trip, but the idea of helping the children returned the hope and courage to their hearts and minds.
G.O has written a letter relating the experiences they went through during the first 10 days since they arrived to Peru.
On the letter G.O talks about the Tae Kwon Do exhibition in Cuzco, the cultural event in Lima as well as the volunteer work in a school in Huaraz.
