It seems that the mystery can be finally put to rest thanks to netizens who uncovered that the two had separately shared a story about an “ex” that overlaps. Yoon Eun Hye, on May 17, spoke about an ex on her personal YouTube channel.

The actress revealed this was the first time she was sharing this story and explained that men begin to stop texting as much as in the beginning.

This is the first time I am sharing this publicly. Men always text a lot in the beginning. As time goes by, this stops, and it is only inevitable that women feel bad about this.

The actress then revealed a story about a present she gave an ex-boyfriend. She once gifted her boyfriend a notebook with all of his texts handwritten.

I once hand-wrote all the texts my boyfriend (at the time) had sent me in a notebook and gave it to him as a present. He was a really good man, and he felt bad that all of his texts were short and apologized.

Netizens then brought up an account similar to this in 2018. In an episode of SBS‘s My Little Old Boy, Kim Jong Kook revealed a present he once received from an ex-girlfriend. He explained that he once dated someone who hand-wrote all the texts that he had sent to her.

There was an ex-girlfriend who once hand-wrote all the texts that I had sent her. She used to call me her Prince. As time went by, my text messages became shorter. I once sent her a text that only read, ‘Going to the gym.’

Due to their stories coinciding, allegations that the two celebrities had dated in real life have been reignited. As the rumors made headlines domestically and abroad, Yoon Eun Hye took down her YouTube video. According to the actress, “A recently uploaded video had an issue with its file and has been deleted.”
