On the December 5 airing of 'tvntainer', Ye Jung Hwa opened up about her public relationship and the big age gap of 17-years. She said, "We both like exercising so we became close while exercising together. I asked him about how to do things and naturally became close."
Jo Se Ho commented, "Ma Dong Seok hyungnim is the style who's nice and easy to get close to." Ye Jung Hwa laughed in agreement and also revealed that her boyfriend likes to call her 'baby'.
Ye Jung Hwa and Ma Dong Seok confirmed they were a couple of 3 months in November.
