Actress and singer Yu Jin (Eugene), a member of the girl group SES, talked about how she had secret dates with her ex-boyfriend, also an entertainer, while appearing on a KBS2 entertainment program.
On “Champagne,” hosted by Sin Dong-yeob and Sin Bong-seon and which aired Saturday, Yu said, “We couldn’t date in public because we were recognized, so we usually met in a car or at the other’s home.” She said she yearned for a normal date.
She said they once went to the amusement park, adding, “There was a way to hide our identity. Someone gave me this tip. We wore the masks, you know the kind sold at theme parks. We wandered around in the masks. Of course, no one knew us.”
She also clarified ridiculous love scandal rumors. About the rumor that she was dating middle-aged actor Lee Young-ha, she said, “I was mistaken for actress Yu Ji-in. It was a name confusion. But the Lee-Yu rumor was also false.”
On the rumor that she moved in with music mogul and president of JYP Entertainment Park Jin-young, she said, “If Park heard of this in the US, he would be flabbergasted.”
She also said she contacts actor Park Yong-ha, whom she once dated, once in a while. Their love affair went public when their personal photos were released by the media.
Saturday’s Champagne invited beauty queens who starred in horror dramas or films. Other guests were Lee Young-eun, Moon Jeong-hui and Jeon Hye-bin. Jeon talked about the truth behind her rumored romance with H.O.T. member Jang Wu-hyeok.
