During the show, Kang Hoon said that he has been very shy ever since he was young. The actor shared, “It happened when I was in elementary school. At that time, if we like someone, we would talk to that person through an app like Buddy Buddy”. Buddy Buddy is a messenger program that was in service from 2000 to 2012.
He added, “I only talked to the friend (that I liked) on Buddy Buddy and pretended not to know her at school. It was because I was too shy”, adding, “Since both were too shy, we pretended to be strangers and passed by each other.”
Then, the actor confessed, “On Valentine’s Day, I asked that friend to go to school about one hour earlier so that we could exchange gifts with each other”, adding, “We came to school, but just stayed still. I couldn’t even give her the present I prepared”
When MC Kim Gu-ra asked, “So who was the first to talk about the breakup?”, Kang Hoon said, “We haven’t said that yet. One day, I happened to know that friend was dating my friend. So I thought this might be a breakup”, drawing laughter.
Kang Hoon, who turned 30 this year, debuted in 2009 with the short film “Gori”. In 2021, he made his name be widely known by playing Hong Deok-ro in MBC’s drama “The Red Sleeve”
