11 Jun – Fans and media alike are currently buzzing with the recent pandemonium created by "Queen In-hyun's Man" actor, Ji Hyun-woo who confessed his feelings for his co-star Yoo In-na.
As reported on Allkpop website, on 7 June, during a wrap-up party for the stated drama, the actor surprised even Yoo In-na herself when he confessed, "I wanted to make this confession in front of the fans who really like our drama. I really like Yoo In-na. Please look forward to us with kind hearts."
He explained how his feelings developed, saying, "There was a scene on episode 14 where I confessed my love for Yoo In-na. I couldn't get myself in an emotional state to act out the scene and that's when Yoo In-na came close to me and inserted an earphone in my ear. I couldn't stop crying at that moment."
Meanwhile, Yoo In-na said very little about the confession, only stating, "After we finish this event I think we'll have to have a serious talk."
Cake-cutting and fan-meeting activities were also cut short after the sudden confession as all actors left in a hurry.
Yoo In-na's statement
Meanwhile, there were no words from the actress about Ji's confession. However, Yoo In-na's agency, YG Entertainment made an official yet very safe response to Ji Hyun-woo's public confession.
On 8 June, a representative of the agency stated, "We believe Ji Hyun-woo made a very emotional statement. After a meeting we've concluded that it will be best to not announce an official position on the matter."
Ji Hyun-woo MIA
On another note, according to Kpopstarz website, the singer/actor has been missing in action three days after his public announcement. His agency, Paramount Music stated, "We can't reach him, his phone has been off for the past 3 days."
However, the representatives of his agency explained that Ji has been enlisted to serve his 22 month national service starting on 3 July and that the actor has been a bit overwhelmed by it.
The agency also confirmed that they were also not aware of Ji Hyun-woo's public confession beforehand.
Yoo In-na's "We got Married" issue
Ji Hyun-woo's public confession seemed not to only surprised fans and media, but also caused a major domino effect on the actress' filming for MBC's "We Got Married".
Allkpop website reported that the broadcasting network recently revealed that the actress had been filming as part of a new couple for the MBC variety program, "We Got Married" and was delayed due to MBC crew strike since January.
A representative of the show revealed that Ji Hyun-woo's public confession has "...thrown the entire plan into turmoil".
They stated, "The situation is neither here nor there. The expectations were large considering the amount of time we've waited, but we don't know how to solve this problem."
They added that there is no comment from YG Entertainment, therefore the production will need to wait and see before making any decisions.
