On the December 20 broadcast of “Noonas Over Flowers,” Lee Mi Yeon praised actor couple Moon Geun Young and Kim Bum, who recently returned from a backpacking trip across Europe shortly after going public with their relationship.
She said, “Wow. They’re amazing. I personally like Geun Young a lot. She played a child character in the historical drama series ‘Empress Myeongseong.’ I think actors are all about their gazes and I thought as a child, she had a particularly pretty gaze. When you start off working in the industry at a young age, it’s difficult growing up in the eyes of the public and not be caught up in the fame game, but I don’t think it affected her in the slightest.”
As for Kim Bum, she praised him saying, “I’ve heard that Bum is a really great guy from my manager’s younger sibling. He also knows how to drink…” and burst into laughter. She ended by saying, “Those two are just amazing. I would send them my blessing.”
