And when he wanted to marry his girlfriend, he asked her how much spending she wanted and promised her double.

I asked my ex-girlfriend how much she needed as spending money every month. And I told her I’d give her double what she wanted.

But when she asked what he planned to do with the rest, Jang Dong Min told the truth.

I told her that a lot of money went toward my family and that I had to take care of them. I told her I had to keep doing that.

And sadly, his girlfriend couldn’t accept it.

My girlfriend at the time said, ‘No. I can’t stand to see that.’

The two had to split up due to differences in values, but Jang Dong Min ended up giving up on getting married altogether.

Once I thought about it from the woman’s perspective, I wasn’t sure about seeing anybody else…
