Just when we thought real-life sweethearts Hyun Bin and Son Yejin couldn’t get any sweeter!
Yejin has admitted in the Korean variety show You Quiz on the Block that her first love is none other than her fiancé and Crash Landing on You leading man Hyun Bin.
Yejin, who’s nicknamed the “The Nation’s First Love” in South Korea, made the kilig revelation when she was asked by the hosts who’s her first love in real life.
“My current love is my first love,” Yejin said, as per a report by Soompi.
The 40-year-old actress also admitted that she wants to hold on to her title as “The Nation’s First Love” “for as long as I possibly can.”
“How much longer would I be able to hear people call me that? I do want to hear [the nickname] for as long as I possibly can, since I won’t be able to hear people say that kind of thing anymore once time has passed. [By then], I think people will come up with another nickname for me that suits my age,” Yejin said.
Hyun Bin and Yejin announced they will be tying the knot earlier this month. In a report by The Korea Herald, the couple’s entertainment agencies VAST Entertainment and MSTeam confirmed they will get married in a private ceremony in March.
Hyun Bin and Yejin’s relationship was confirmed in January 2021 even though they’d been dating for “eight months.”
The celebrity couple worked together in the 2018 crime thriller The Negotiation before appearing on Crash Landing on You.
