Another week and that means only one thing - Prince Mak is back on SBS PopAsia radio with "The Prince Mak Hour."

In the latest episode of his radio show, Prince Mak decided to have a bit of fun this week by pulling the curtain back on some fun facts about some big-name K-pop groups and idols, as well as some interesting K-pop facts that you may or may not know about!

Without further ado, here are a few fun facts about some K-pop groups and idols (and K-pop in general) that you may or may not know about:

  • BIGBANG are viewed more on YouTube in Japan than they are in Korea
  • EXO are viewed more on YouTube in Thailand than they are in Korea
  • Girl groups are actually more popular in Korea than boy groups.
  • BTS' Jin's pants actually fell down during their debut stage! (Sorry fans, no video can be found of this!)
  • Miss A's Suzy (Prince Mak's fave!) actually auditioned for the 2009 Mnet's SuperStar K but was eliminated during the preliminary rounds. Luckily, a JYP scout discovered her and she later debuted with Miss A!
  • Rain auditioned for JYP 19 times - and failed 18 times! Luckily he got in on the 19th time!
  • On SISTAR's Bora's TV debut day, her father was sadly suffering from illness and passed away.
  • 2PM's Taecyeon proposed to his first loved with 2 rings - a silver and gold ring!
  • Girl's Day's Yura has insured her legs for a whopping $500,000!
  • BIGBANG's T.O.P's original stage name was Mark!
  • Girls' Generation's Sunny shares the same birthday (May 15) as her two older sisters!
