The singer-turned-actor said, "My girlfriend is 13 years younger than me and a college student... I didn't plan on making my relationship public, but while I was appearing on a cable program, Jun Hyun Moo asked me in private whether I had a girlfriend. I didn't know it was filming, and I answered honestly."
MC Shin Dong Yup responded, "There's no reason you should worry about an age difference. Your girlfriend is 23. It'd be a problem if you've been dating her for 5 or 6 years." Rose Motel's Yook Joon Wan also joked, "If I was dating a woman 13 years younger than I am, they'd call me a criminal."
