Lee Sun Gyun Chased After Jun Hye Jin Since He Was in College
Actor Lee Sun Gyun reminisced on his first encounter with his wife, Jun Hye Jin.
During May 19’s broadcast of SBS’s Healing Camp, Lee Sun Gyun revealed, “I liked Jun Hye Jin since I was in college.”
MC Lee Kyung Kyu asked, “Didn’t you chase after her when she was being called the ‘goddess’ of Daehangno.”
Lee Sun Gyun responded, “I was a fan of Jun Hye Jin since I was a college student. She was not a common actress. More than wanting to date her, I just wanted to meet and get to know her. Then my friend joined the same theatre group as Jun Hye Jin. So I asked my friend if he could let me meet her once."
He then said, “I was filming drama Thousand Years of Love with Sung Yuri at that time. It was my first time shooting a mini series, so I had no sense of responsibility. I was waiting for my drama script at the waiting room and my friend called and asked, ‘Do you want to meet her now?’ So I went straight to Daehangno with my manager.”
Lee Sun Gyun shared, “I drank tea with her for ten minutes but she had to go to a company dinner so I tagged along. Then the drama team contacted me saying the scripts came out. I needed to do something before I left so I asked her for her phone number, and that’s when our relationship began.”
