Who Was Haha and Byul′s Matchmaker?
Haha and Byul came together with the help of a singing matchmaker.
On the November 1 broadcast of tvN′s Taxi, Byul appeared to talk about her upcoming marriage with Haha.
Byul said singer Han Esther was the one who had brought the two together.
"I got up in the morning, and I found I had received a lot of calls and text messages. I called my friend, Han Esther unni (big sister), and she said she had told Haha my phone number because he wanted it," she said.
The text that Haha soon sent her was, "It′s Dong Hoon. I like you."
"It was our first text in four years, and it was so weird that I called Esther unni to demand an explanation," she added.
Byul, however, came to meet Haha after being persuaded by Han Esther.
When Han Esther told Byul to start seeing Haha, Byul had said, "Don′t talk lightly about it just because it′s not your life you′re talking about," but Han Esther answered earnestly, "If he wanted to play around and drink, why would he have said he seriously wanted to start seeing you?"
The words touched Byul, and helped her feel how Haha felt.
