Along with the photo, Sung Si Kyung wrote a caption explaining what happened at the restaurant he was at. First, he shared that a fan offered to pay for his meal.

It’s the season of rice soup. It’s delicious as usual. I was embarrassed because I was trying to quickly finish a hot bowl of soup alone after catching a cold, but a fan behind me insisted on paying for the meal, saying they were a fan. I felt awkward.

He continued that after eating, the fan asked for a photo, but the singer refused. However, he believed this was the right decision.

After eating, the fan asked for a photo, but I had to refuse because I was in no condition to take a picture. When I got in the car and saw my sweaty appearance reflected in the rearview mirror, I realized it was a good decision not to take a photo. I’m sorry for being a bad celebrity who received a ₩10,000 KRW (about $7.64 USD) soup but didn’t take a picture.

He thanked the fan for the soup and also cracked a joke about his appearance.

I want to be good-looking, too. [Next time,] please don’t pay for my meal.
