[Video] Son Ye Jin Believes SNSD Fans Gave Her to Haha to Protect Yoona
Son Ye Jin showed she was as funny as she was beautiful through a mere phone call.
On the August 2 broadcast of tvN’s Taxi, Haha called Son Ye Jin to tell her they had to start seeing each other. It all started when he was asked whether he really was close with the stars he hovers around in his ‘playboy’ character. The question referred to the issue-making photo he had tweeted before.
The photo was of him caught between Son Ye Jin and Girls’ Generation’s (SNSD) Yoona. Haha explained, “I went to the after-party for LeeSsang’s concert, and Son Ye Jin and SNSD’s Yoona happened to be there. I asked them for a photo and so we took it while I pretended to be close with them.”
The photo itself not only made issues, but also the caption Haha had attached to it. He had said, ‘Ah, who should I start dating? I’m gonna go crazy again.’ The painful choice had even led to an actual poll hosted by a portal site, in which Son Ye Jin rose victorious.
Haha said, “I sent her a Kakao Talk message that I think we really do have to start seeing each other, but she wasn’t very surprised.” He did add, however, that he saw a possibility of being with her. When no one believed him, Haha called Son Ye Jin to prove it, and Son Ye Jin from then on took over and dealt humorous blow after humorous blow.
Haha suddenly said to her, “I think we have to start going out with each other,” but Son Ye Jin didn’t budge and instead returned, “Oh, can I? Really?”
When Haha started going in too deep and told her that he loves her, however, she shot back, “Are you drunk?”
Son Ye Jin also touched on her ‘battle’ with SNSD’s Yoona. She joked about winning the portal site’s poll, “The reason I won the vote is probably because Yoona’s fans wanted to protect her.”
In the same episode, Haha’s best friend Skull also made an appearance. Skull is a reggae singer, and is known as the first Korean singer that managed to climb as high as no. 3 on the Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Chart.
Haha praised, “If variety has ‘God Yoo [Jae Suk]’, in music we have ‘God Skull’. That’s how great he is.”
