Sungmin and his wife, Kim Sa Eun recently made an appearance on TV Chosun‘s Wife’s Taste, where they took the time to talk about their life as a married couple. The couple, who has now been married for 7 years reminisce about their first meeting and how their relationship began.

It was the middle of winter, but I was wearing a short sleeve shirt and shorts. I had just finished our musical practice and realized it was really cold outside. At that time, Sa Eun-sshi came out of practice so I asked her for a ride home.

Kim Sa Eun shared her side of the story by honestly revealing her fear of their shared car ride.

I didn’t take him all the way home, but stopped midway and let him out. I was a little wary since he was such a famous idol. I had to make a boundary.

She confessed, however, that her boundaries were useless when she realized how good of a match they were.

At first, I worked hard to create a wall between us. We got along so well, however, that it was useless. Even if we decided to remain as friends, I believe we would have become best friends.

There are a lot of kiss scenes in musicals.
