That was the first time I ever experienced real life. It was also the first time I did things with unfamiliar people. Surprisingly enough, I endured it well. I would cry by myself and break down by myself.

The former Baby V.O.X member also talked about her life as an actress and the criticisms she received, especially during her production, Princess Hours.

I was known as the ‘strong and mighty girl’ so people at the time didn’t understand why I was portraying a princess. I thought being strong was a bad thing.

The 36-year-old actress has been thriving as a single woman, but with that said, the inevitable topic of her ideal type was brought up during her time on the radio program.

I want someone who has similar values and perspectives as me. I am timid so I would like someone who is fun and can lead me. If my future husband likes Korean and non-Korean food, I can cook both for him.

I think he’s such a cool person. It’s been 9 years since I stopped drinking alcohol. Kim Jong Kook doesn’t drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. He’s so diligent about his self-care. I like people like that.

Yoon Eun Hye and Kim Jong Kook were previously put into a “love-line” during their time together on X-Man. The two of them shared a similar strong and mighty image, leading to their onscreen “relationship.” Their television pairing eventually became so iconic, that their faux love story began expanding outside of the X-Man and into other shows. This fake onscreen relationship became so well-loved and popular, that the two eventually got embroiled in a real dating scandal.

Even decades later, it seems that the two still can’t get away from the popularity of their former “love story” that happened ages ago.
