Song Ji Hyo, Jun So Min, And More Reveal Stories About Their Love Lives On “Running Man”
On the latest episode of SBS’s “Running Man,” the cast members and guests spilled the beans about their love lives!
During the variety show’s December 30 episode, the cast and guests participated in a talk battle where they swapped stories about memorable dates on Christmas in order to earn a hint for the mission.
Jun So Min went first and talked about a time she went to an amusement park with her boyfriend when she was 24 years old (by Korean reckoning). Because they were students at the time and didn’t have much money, Jun So Min said that her boyfriend continually disappeared throughout the date to check how much money he had.
Yoo Jae Suk sympathized with her story, then asked what had happened later on in their relationship. Jun So Min made everyone laugh by revealing that she and her boyfriend had eventually broken up because of her drinking.
Song Ji Hyo, who had never talked about her love life on “Running Man” before, told a story about a boyfriend with whom she once spent the holidays. She said, “It was when I was promoting [as an actress], and since we couldn’t go on a date in public, we decided to spend Christmas at home.”
She continued, “We were hanging out, and I fell asleep. My boyfriend then woke me up and took me to the room next door, which was completely filled with balloons. He had planned it all out beforehand and had purchased balloons and candles [to surprise me].”
“I was really moved,” she went on. “We drank wine and hung out together, and then it became morning.”
While listening to her story, the “Running Man” members interrupted to complain that the story had suddenly jumped to the next morning, without including what had happened in between. Song Ji Hyo became startled and laughed, but she still went on to finish her story.
“Something kept tickling my face,” she continued. “I thought that my boyfriend was touching my face while I was sleeping. But when I opened my eyes, I saw that the balloons had deflated and were coming down, so the strings were all resting on my face.”
Park Ha Na mentioned that she used to go the same gym as Sung Hoon, and she revealed that although Sung Hoon is typically aloof when it comes to women, she had spotted him being especially friendly to a female celebrity that went to their gym.
Sung Hoon rushed over to Park Ha Na and asked her to whisper the female celebrity’s name into his ear. He then denied that he had been interested in the mystery celebrity, explaining that the reason he had sometimes given her a ride home was because they were both headed in the same direction. However, Park Ha Na told everyone that she had actually lived in the same neighborhood as Sung Hoon at the time, and he had never offered her a ride home.
Sung Hoon asked, “Didn’t you have a boyfriend at the time?” Park Ha Na then surprised everyone by replying, “I have a boyfriend right now.”
