Kangta Talks About His Love Life And Painful Past Experiences
On the September 6 episode of tvN’s “Life Bar,” Kangta talked about his romantic relationships and experiences in dating.
Kangta revealed that his concern was loneliness, saying, “My last relationship was in 2014. At some point during the relationship, I wasn’t passionate about love as I used to be. When I met my girlfriend, I was calculating whether I would marry her or not. I felt really sorry to her, so I was the one who suggested we break up.”
Super Junior’s Kim Heechul then asked Kangta what his longest relationship was, to which Kangta replied, “[I dated] my first love for five years. If I think about it now, it was my fault that we broke up. I loved her so much, so I was very passionate. I wanted to get closer to her, and I wanted her closer to me. That could have made her uncomfortable, and that kind of inconvenience and obsession could have led to our break-up.”
Kangta even added that he fainted when his first love broke up with him. He shared, “I was in the waiting room, and my girlfriend asked to meet up. We couldn’t because of my busy schedule though, so she called me and broke up with me. At that moment, I couldn’t breathe. I’m not exaggerating. I closed my eyes and rested for a moment, but I heard that I wasn’t breathing for a minute. That’s how painful my first love was.”
