The actress appeared on a talk show for the first time since her dating news with Se7en in September of 2016. You know this means that she was given many questions about her lover. In response, Lee Da Hae coolly opened up about her relationship and shared juicy stories about their first encounter, "secret" vacations, paparazzi photos, and more.
Lee Da Hae first talked about how she met Se7en. She said, "I knew him but we weren't close. After he returned from the military, a friend of mine who also knew Se7en called me and said she was with Se7en and asked me if I would like to join. I thought, 'Se7en? Drink with Se7en?' At the time, my thoughts were the same as the public. I thought this is not right. I'm also a celebrity but it was a selfish thought."
However, Lee Da Hae ultimately decided to go out for drinks and said, "If I didn't go out with that thought engraved in my mind, then I think it would've been a decision that I regret the most in my life." She continued to express affection for Se7en, saying, "He said that I was a great support to him when he was struggling but he was to me as well. I wasn't mentally relaxed and Se7en being the bright, positive guy was a big encouragement to me."
Next, Lee Da Hae shared that her mother was a big help in strengthening their relationship. She revealed that Se7en wanted to meet her mother only little after they officially started dating. She explained, "He knows the rumors about himself so I think he wanted to give assurance to my mom. His thoughts were very beautiful."
According to Lee Da Hae, when the news broke out, Se7en showed concerns and said, "Should we just say that we're in the process of getting to know each other?" However, she responded, "Our relationship is only that?", and emphasized that she wanted to be honest.
As for their paparazzi cuts taken at their "secret" but not-so-secret vacation, Lee Da Hae said, "We even did the ticketing separately and chose local airports. We got on the same airplane but there weren't any Koreans. The flight attendants were also foreigners. He was sitting a far but I called him over and we took selcas and played around. But it turned out that one of the flight attendants was friends with a Korean reporter."
