On the August 3 episode of KBS2’s “Happy Together,” Wanna One’s Hwang Minhyun was asked about his dating experience.
MC Yoo Jae Suk asked, “They say that you have been single since birth. I can’t believe it.”
Hwang Minhyun explained, “I haven’t been single since birth. I dated someone when I was in my third year of middle school.”
He continued, “But the dating wasn’t really dating. We were chatting on a messenger and we ended up dating because we had agreed upon it. We just did that and then we broke up.”
Others on the show teased him and said, “That is being single since birth. That’s just cyber dating.”
Hwang Minhyun further explained, “We broke up naturally. The confession was done through a text message. I ended up confessing because my school friends pushed me to.”
The singer described their relationship and said, “When we broke up there was no text message; we just broke up naturally. It was awkward when we met at school. Since we had only talked through the messenger, I was only affectionate on the messenger.”
The MCs then asked him if he had gone on a date with her and Hwang Minhyun answered that they had not gone on a date together.
He also revealed that his first experience of physical touch with someone of the opposite sex was with a fan since he debuted at a young age. Hwang Minhyun said, “I experienced physical touch for the first time when I hugged and shook hands with fans at a fan meeting. I was so nervous and my heart was fluttering.”
