Lee Hwi Jae shared about the time he ran into an idol couple.
On the May 30 airing of MBC FM4U's 'Kim Shin Young's Hope Song at Noon', Lee Hwi Jae revealed, "There were many idols when I used to live near the Konkuk University area. You usually have an idea who lives there. I lived on the 6th floor and my friend lived on the 13th floor. My wife and I often visited them, and one night, we were on the elevator and we saw a male idol who lives there and a female idol who doesn't live there. [To not make things awkward] I immediately told the female idol, 'You must've moved here. Congrats', and continued talking with my wife."
Lee Hwi Jae added, "That male idol thanked me later on. But the two made a mistake by getting off on the same floor. Honestly, my wife and I wouldn't have misunderstood them if they weren't so flustered themselves (when they ran into us)."
