Jo Yoon Hee And Lee Dong Gun Describe Their Married Life
On December 13, Jo Yoon Hee made her first appearance as the show’s newest MC with ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo who appeared as a special MC.
Jo Yoon Hee said, “I enjoyed watching ‘Happy Together’ since a long time ago and I appeared many times, so I think of this is an honor.”
She continued, “After having a baby, my confidence fell and I worried a lot about whether or not I could work again. I was worried and my husband enthusiastically suggested that I try being an MC. When I couldn’t gather courage, my husband gave me lots of courage.”
Lee Dong Gun began, “Thanks to Jo Yoon Hee, I earned the nickname ‘pig feet man.’ We ate pig feet together on our wedding anniversary.”
He explained, “A while ago, Jo Yoon Hee said on a variety show, ‘My husband forgot about our wedding anniversary and just brought home pig feet.’ After that, I became ‘the nation’s pig feet man.’ At the time, I was really busy because of filming and forgot about our first wedding anniversary. We were eating pig feet on our wedding anniversary and fireworks went off right outside of our window at home. I didn’t know why there were fireworks, but we watched them while we held hands. I went to bed after watching the fireworks, but I could hear her crying. The moment I heard her crying, I remembered that today was our wedding anniversary.”
He continued, “After Jo Yoon Hee said this on a variety show, I got some criticism and was called ‘pig feet man.’ This part didn’t air on TV, but on the next day, I found tulips and gifted them to my wife. But that part was edited out and all that was left was ‘pig feet man.'”
As someone who saw Lee Dong Gun and Jo Yoon Hee when they were dating, Oh Eui Sik said, “Lee Dong Gun took good care of the people around Jo Yoon Hee. He even participated in Jo Yoon Hee’s radio team dinner. It was always the two of them together when she was going home from work.”
He continued, “There was a time the four of us had dinner including my wife, and they held hands until the dinner ended. I thought Lee Dong Gun was left-handed.”
Lee Dong Gun and Jo Yoon Hee expressed their love for each other throughout the show. He said, “When I wake up in the morning and see my wife’s face, I feel a sense of stability that I can’t put into words. I think we’re a married couple that’s head over heels for one another.”
Jo Yoon Hee added, “We appeared as a couple together in the drama, and spending our everyday life together feels like I’m watching a drama. My husband has zero faults. He doesn’t have any bad appearances. His everyday life is like a photo shoot.”
Lee Dong Gun concluded, “My wife can be straightforward. She speaks well in a direct way. I think it’ll be a big plus as an MC. Please take good care of my wife.”
