Son Ye Jin recently started her very first public relationship with actor Hyun Bin earlier this year, and fans are all for it.


But in light of the exciting revelation, her past confession of why she wasn’t dating before resurfaced online.


Back in 2007, Son Ye Jin spoke in an interview with KBS‘s Entertainment Weekly where the host asked her why she was single.

You’re so beautiful. Why don’t you have a boyfriend?

— Son Ye Jin


And Son Ye Jin’s boss response left a strong impression on fans.

Because I have high standards. I’m pretty.

— Son Ye Jin

This past clip has fans wondering if Hyun Bin was the first man to truly meet her high standards.


However, Son Ye Jin later revealed in 2018 on the same show that she was just kidding around at the time.

I only said that to be funny.

— Son Ye Jin


She then clarified that she wasn’t dating because she couldn’t.

I simply can’t date right now. In order to date, you have to go out to meet people and go on blind dates, but it’s not easy. And it gets harder as you get older.

— Son Ye Jin

Well, now that she’s found her love, here’s to wishing both Son Ye Jin and Hyun Bin a happy future together!
