Lee Joon’s Romance Life
According to the press, in January of 2015, Lee Joon started dating a girl who had been one of his classmates for more than two years. Because she is an ordinary girl, he and those around him are trying not to reveal information about her or their relationship, and they are very careful when dating and hanging out.
At the same time, his agency said that he had a lot of “girl” friends because he majored in dance when he was in high school, and he might want to tell his fans about it and share it with them if he should have a girlfriend.
Lee Joon also talked about his former girlfriends when he appeared in a variety show in 2011. He said that he had had two girlfriends so far, however, Go Young-wook, a member of Roora, took them. Both of his girlfriends were in contact with Go Young-wook when they were with Lee Joon, which is why he stopped having any contact with those women.
In the show, Go Young-wook also appeared and he did not deny what Lee Joon said.
Lee Joon Talked about His Ex Girlfriends
In a recent interview, actor Lee Joon talked about being in love, marriage, and meeting his longstanding ideal type, Kim Yu-na.
The actor talked about his own love life in a frank manner and said, “I’m 30 and, although I have had girlfriends, I regret not having dated anyone in a deep and meaningful way. When I was a student, I had a lot of emotional ups and downs because of love and cried a lot because of love; however, as I got older and became an adult, my emotions became more subdued and now I don’t really react too much. I think I’ve become that much more sensitive.”
He continued, “Besides when I act, I have not cried [since becoming an adult]. Life in the public social sphere is very fierce and, in order to survive, there are rules that need to be adhered to. I think being in that sort of space has made me very sensitive.”
Regarding love, Lee Joon admitted, “I don’t think I’ve ever truly been in love before. Marriage seems like a very vague thing to me. I’ve always thought that I would marry someone that I would take a bullet for, but I have yet to feel that, which is why I’m trying to cultivate those kinds of emotions.”
Lee Joon’s longstanding ideal type has been former professional figure skater Kim Yu-na and the actor shared an amusing story about a time when he actually met her. He said, “During the Olympics a while ago, I ran into her and I realized how small I could become around people I truly like. At the time, I was with Jeong Jin-woon and [former] SISTAR’s member Bora. The two of them greeted [Kim Yu-na] while I hid, but then Jeong Jin-woon called me out, so I reluctantly greeted her and told her I was a fan before running away.”
He continued, “That was the first time I felt myself become so small. I liked her as a fan but I couldn’t control my own emotions. I would like to become as cool and levelheaded as her. I think that it’s best to have a levelheaded mindset in any and all situations…She’s younger than me but I think I have a lot to learn from her. I respect her greatly.”
Meanwhile, Lee Joon also talked about why he has avoided romantic projects and how he’s open to pursuing other career paths after completing his military service.
