Now that I think about it, it’s unbelievable. I was pretty back then while Mithra Jin had a mustache and was quite wild looking. Now he’s much more attractive and cool.

Tablo hilariously added onto the story by sharing why he believes the two sparked these types of rumors.

You guys did meet in secret. I was close to Heechul too. I don’t know if they thought I’d be jealous, but they always met in the middle of the night so I wouldn’t know.

Heechul shares why he felt such a close attachment to the Epik High member.

Ever since I debuted, it’s been hard to find 1983-ers. After I met him (Mithra Jin) on a program, we became close friends. I am someone who has strong emotions, but Mithra Jin is very neutral. He doesn’t convey strong emotions. We have such opposite personalities that we mesh well together.

— Heechul

After his explanation, Heechul reminisced about their old days together before Mithra Jin got married.

This is actually the first time I have seen him since he got married. He’s always been there for me. We always drank soju together while we talked about our life concerns.

He ends the story by revealing his brutally honest feelings about his friend getting hitched.

When he got married, my heart hurt a little. I went to a gogi shop during the day and day drank a ton in my sorrow.

This story is absolute gold! We are obsessed with their friendship and hope it lasts for a lifetime.
