Goo Hye Sun’s Past Rumor About Her Pathological Lying Disorder Resurfaces In Light Of Her Divorce

The rumor claimed Goo Hye Sun is a compulsive liar.

With her on-going divorce war with her husband Ahn Jae Hyun, Goo Hye Sun‘s past interview about her personality disorder rumor has resurfaced. In this interview, she discussed how she was rumored to have “pathological lying disorder” – also known as mythomania – and possibly why such rumors began to spread.


Goo Hye Sun’s pathological lying disorder rumor began dated as old as 2009, when she appeared on Boys Over Flowers and got spotlight for her leading role of Geum Jan Di. With her rising fame, Goo Hye Sun interviewed on multiple platforms and channels. Some of her responses at such interviews ended up becoming questionable for some Koreans, who then began to believe that she was showing signs of mythomania.


And as soon as Goo Hye Sun began exposing Ahn Jae Hyun via her Instagram posts, a group of netizens began bringing up the decade old rumor that Goo Hye Sun suffers this particular personality disorder.

It’s her pathological disorder acting up again. Look it up, she’s known for it.

And amidst the exposé and the chat log reveals, Koreans dug up a past interview – done in 2015 – in which Goo Hye Sun discussed her own mythomania rumor.

There is not much I can do (about the rumor and people who choose to believe it). The things I’ve said playfully often turned into facts. They became written down and were often twisted to mean completely different things.

The interview pointed out that, for years, one of the related keywords to pop up when netizens search “Goo Hye Sun” was “Pathological Lying”. Goo Hye Sun admitted to knowing about the rumor and said her “light-hearted pranks” may have added to the suspicion.

A lot of people take me to be a very serious person. But I love humor, jokes, and pranks. 80% of what I say are usually just for fun. And as those things get delivered to the public via media, they turn into “lies” and I became a “liar”. I think that’s how the pathological liar rumor began.

Goo Hye Sun also claimed that she fully understood she was “the one who caused the rumor to ever spread” and admitted she did like the attention. She called herself “a young girl who wanted the attention from the public.”

All in all, I was the one who caused people to say such things. I’ve blamed myself for it. When I was young, I wanted a lot of attention…

Meanwhile, Koreans remain highly interested in how her divorce with Ahn Jae Hyun will unfold. As the full disclosure of details around their marriage continues, both parties’ past interviews and actions continue to be rediscovered and discussed.
