T-ara Reveals How They Used To Date In Secret + Asks Min Kyung Hoon If Eunjung Is Still His Ideal Type
T-ara revealed the secret of how they used to sneak out for dates on “Ask Us Anything”!
At one point, the T-ara members mentioned that their cell phones were taken away by their manager on the day of their debut. Min Kyung Hoon then asked, “But you guys must have dated while you were promoting as a group. How did you do that without cell phones?”
The T-ara members explained that they had helped each other sneak out of their dorm when they needed to go on a date.
“When one of us said, ‘I need to go out today,’ we would take turns keeping a lookout,” recalled Eunjung. “After the member went out, we would make it look like she was sleeping in her bed by arranging a bunch of our bags and other stuff in the shape of a person’s body, then covering that with a blanket. There are these clip-in hair extensions that idols use, and we’d spread that out on top [to look like her hair]. Then we’d dim the lights, so the whole scene would look like she was sleeping.”
Eunjung went on, “If the manager came in, our acting was important. We’d say, ‘Oh, we’re sleeping right now, and we’re all in our pajamas—what is it?’ Then he’d say, ‘Oh, you guys are sleeping?’ [and leave].”
Hyomin chimed in, “We didn’t have anywhere to meet up, so we’d go on dates on the roof of our building. We’d chat for 30 minutes and then go back to our dorm.”
They hilariously added that on days when two of the members had overlapping dates, they’d play rock-paper-scissors to decide who would get the better date spot on the roof.
Later on in the episode, Eunjung brought up the fact that 10 years ago, Min Kyung Hoon had revealed on a variety show that she was his ideal type and had said he wanted to “protect” her.
The program then aired footage from that fateful episode of MBC’s “Quiz to Change the World,” on which both Min Kyung Hoon and Eunjung appeared as guests back in 2011. After personally revealing that Eunjung was his ideal type, Min Kyung Hoon boldly declared, “I like her.”
“I’m really curious if you still feel that way,” said Eunjung. “But what I want to say to Kyung Hoon is that after seeing you on ‘Ask Us Anything,’ I feel like rather than being protected, I should be the one protecting him. So if you’re not interested in protecting me, should I protect you from now on?”
Unable to hide his joy, Min Kyung Hoon jokingly replied, “Hey, where was that roof you talked about earlier? I’ll go there first and wait for you.”
He then playfully turned to his fellow cast members and pumped his fist in the air while exclaiming, “It worked out! Finally! After all these years, it worked out!”
Shortly afterwards, when Eunjung was showing off her talent of being able to write with both her left and right hands at the same time, Min Kyung Hoon adorably called out, “Can you write my name just once?”
After she had written his name, Min Kyung Hoon went up to the chalkboard and wrote Eunjung’s name next to it—then drew a heart in between their names, to the cheers of the other T-ara members and the “Ask Us Anything” cast.
Do you think Eunjung and Min Kyung Hoon would make a cute couple?
