Choi Yoon-young’s Relationship

Until now, 32 year-old Choi Yoon-young is reportedly single. It seems that she put her career first and focus to it. She doesn’t have a boyfriend at the moment, even though she had received dating rumor to other drama cast members. But there is no official statement from her agency. So, the rumor remains rumor and wasn’t proven.

Despite being single, Choi Yoon-young revealed a fact of her relationship. On the episode of “Strong Heart” that aired on May 29 2012, she confessed that Super Junior member, Eunhyuk, was known to have a crush on her while in elementary school. The whole studio was shocked at this confession. Choi Yoon-young stated, “When I was in elementary school, there was a boy who gave me a love letter and that boy is here right now.” She referred her statement to Eunhyuk who appeared as guest starred in the episode.

She continued to say, “When I was in the sixth grade, I was in the same class as Eunhyuk and JYJ’s Junsu. At that time, it was the trend to be pen pals and give each other letters. I saved all my letters and discovered one from Eunhyuk.”

In the letter, Eunhyuk introduced himself with a made-up name of “Yoo Ji Hyuk.” Sixth-grader Eunhyuk explained, “Yoo Ji Hyuk is an awesome name I made for myself. The ‘Yoo’ comes from Yoo Seung Jun, ‘Ji’ from Eun Ji Won and ‘Hyuk’ from Jang Woo Hyuk.”

He continued to say in the letter, “I heard you like me and Junsu. That makes me so happy! I like you,” which amused the whole studio and made audience burst in laughter.

Choi Yoon-young said, “Eunhyuk was very popular. He is called an ‘anchovy’ (myul-chi) now but back then, he wasn’t that skinny. He was funny and smart so he was voted as the most popular guy in school.

What do you guys think about her elementary crush story? Isn’t it cute?
