According to the contestant, her future ex-boyfriend was a trainee at the time but debuted during their relationship and immediately became famous.

When we first met, he was a trainee. He was a non-celebrity but debuted while we were together. He became really popular after they hit it big with their first song.

According to Lee Jung Hyun, she didn’t know if they would be dating, but the soon-to-debut idol took her to his dormitory, where he introduced her to his members.

We met 2-3 times and ate, but I didn’t know if we would be dating. One day he took me to his members’ dormitory and introduced me as the woman he loves. That led us to start dating.

When asked why they broke up, the contestant stated that “It was due to outside reasons. I think the label already knew about me. Because we dated even before his debut, some fans knew me. A fan even came up to me and asked, ‘That’s a “couple ring” with oppa, right?'”

When asked if she had seen the idol since their break up, the contestant replied that she did. According to her, while she was a flight attendant, she had been on the same flight with the group three times.

While I was a flight attendant, the group boarded my flight. We met as a passenger and flight attendant. I think he was surprised too, as he kept asking for me. My sunbaes have seen many celebrities, but I’ve seen the group three times.

When the show finally attempted to have the couple rekindle, however, things didn’t work out. In the end, the ex-boyfriend declined to appear on the show. Through an acquaintance of his, he stated that he had retired from the entertainment industry, and appearing on the show was a bit much for him.

Because he left the entertainment industry, appearing on the show is a bit burdensome.

Although things didn’t work out on the show, there is still a chance the two might have a reunion without the cameras.
