Actress Gong Hyo-jin revealed that she has overcome her thoughts on being single due to falling for her husband, Kevin Oh’s character.
On the 28th, a video titled “From Gongvely to Dongbaek. The Drama Guarantee Ticket – Hyo-jin’s Face Changed” was released on the ‘Yujeong Jaehyeong’ channel’s content ‘Yujeong’s Dining Table.’
Upon seeing Gong Hyo-jin, Jeong Jaehyeong remarked, “Your face has gotten better,” and expressed curiosity about her newlywed love story. Jeong Jaehyeong said, “I met Kevin first. We drank together, and he was a really great person. And when the two of you came to our house, I immediately got a good feeling.” He asked, “Didn’t you think you would get along well?”
Gong Hyo-jin replied, “We got along well, so we dated. I’m not the type to rush into relationships, so I don’t have much dating experience. I can’t easily develop feelings for someone. Through dating, I realized that being single doesn’t suit me and goes against my thoughts on remaining single.” She added, “I might seem like I do things my own way without considering others, but I understand and adapt well.” Jeong Jaehyeong agreed, saying, “That’s right. It doesn’t seem like that. You may seem tough and intimidating, but you’re not like that,” expressing his empathy.
Gong Hyo-jin revealed that she was actually a proponent of remaining single when she started dating Kevin Oh. Gong Hyo-jin said, “Actually, there were times when my mom would say that being childless is a luxury. Having a baby brings happiness, but it also brings worries and a period of not listening to you. She said there were difficult times as well, to the point where she would wonder what would happen if she didn’t have a child. She supported what I wanted and said that if she were like me, she would work hard and live without getting married,” explaining the situation. She added with a smile, “My mom seemed to think that she and my dad weren’t a good match.”
So, what made Gong Hyo-jin open her heart to Kevin Oh? Gong Hyo-jin said, “My feelings changed. He’s an angel. Even when I see him occasionally, I think he looks like an angel. That’s why his name is saved as ‘Angel’ on my phone. He’s a kind person,” adding a sweet atmosphere to the story.
Meanwhile, Gong Hyo-jin married singer-songwriter Kevin Oh, who is 10 years younger than her, in October last year. Her next project is tvN’s ‘Ask the Stars.’
