On the April 18 airing of MBC FM4U's 'Kim Shin Young's Hope Song at Noon,' Kim Shin Young revealed, "I had a boyfriend during 'We Got Married.' We fought a lot whenever I returned from filming. He always asked, 'Did you enjoy it?'"
As for the reason why she went on the on-screen marriage show even when having an actual boyfriend, Kim Shin Young said, "I had to do whatever that came my way back then. And I didn't want to give viewers a feeling of betrayal (by revealing my relationship)."
Kim Shin Young added, "Relationship (with Shin Sung Rok) was clearly just business."
