She then admitted that Kang Ha Neul was her ideal type.
When comedian Heo Kyung Hwan, who is also an MC of the show, added that anyone who is happy to see him is his ideal type, Hong Ji Yoon joked, “I recommend you to raise a dog, then.”
In the past, Kang Ha Neul addressed how he felt about being called a “nice guy” all the time. He shared in an interview from September of this year that he isn’t “as nice as you think.”
People tend to describe me as kind in a comfortable manner, but I want to become a fun person. I always think about how I could make everyone laugh… I’m not as nice as people think I am. When I meet my friends, I curse when I hang out with them. (Laughs)
