Magician Choi Hyun-woo revealed why he posted an apology video after winning first place in the lottery.

In the 870th episode of MBC's 'Radio Star' (hereinafter referred to as 'Las'), which aired on the 12th, Choi Kang-hee, Lee Sang-yeop, Choi Hyun-woo, Orbit, and Choi Y-na appeared as a special feature 'Which planet are you from?'

On this day, Choi Hyun-woo said that he even made the news with a lottery magic trick, saying, "It was broadcast live on the Internet, and at the time, 60,000 to 70,000 people were watching at the same time. I revealed the lotto paper I bought after 8 o'clock, and that became first place. The prize money was 1.35 billion. “It was 10,000 won,” he said.

Afterwards, the aftermath was severe. Choi Hyun-woo said, "I didn't think it would be a big problem because I did it to promote the performance, but from that day on, the lotto company was inundated with calls like crazy. Our company also received so many calls that we couldn't work."

He continued, "I started performing at the end of the year, but the lottery company came and said they would sue me. They asked me to tell them how I won first place. They said I couldn't tell them and that it was just magic. So I uploaded my apology video to the lottery company's website at the time." He added.

He said, “The lottery company said, ‘It’s good for you to guess the lottery numbers, but don’t buy them.’ So, in the second event, I only guessed the numbers.” When asked if he received the prize money, Choi Hyun-woo said, "I can't tell you that because I talked to the lottery company."

Choi Hyun-woo also received love calls from a cult. He said, "A man in his 50s or 60s contacted me and asked, 'Can I learn magic?' He said he wanted to meet me secretly, and when I met him, I found out that it was a cult."

He continued, "They said they wanted to perform as if they had power. They offered 100 million won per lesson. In fact, such requests come several times a year," and "I am not religious and do not give lessons." Nailed it.
