When a group wins on a music show, it’s customary for them to give a “thank you” speech for which the MC of the show often hands over their microphone. In this case, (G)I-DLE‘s Miyeon happened to be the MC to pass the mic.

For Miyeon, panic set in when the mic made its way down the line of Red Velvet members but never returned.
