Woo Won-jae’s Girlfriend

Unlike other artists, who usually keep their romantic relationships private, Woo Won-jae has actually talked about his girlfriend, while being a guest on the variety program titled Radio Star on MBC. He admitted that he has a girlfriend at the moment. He was asked whether he had a girlfriend or not in the past, but he denied it saying that he and his girlfriend actually had problems and had broken up in the past. But then, they made up and the relationship is going well now, which is why he revealed publicly, on TV, that he’s dating someone right now.

Seeing his great courage, the MCs were wondering whether it’s alright or not for him to publicly announce that he has a girlfriend since usually, fans are against it. But Woo Won-jae said that it’s better to be open up about it rather than lying to his fans. This way, he won over fans’ hearts and they keep supporting him even though he hasn’t revealed who the person he is dating is.
