Yoon Shi-yoon’s Dating News
During an interview with the media outlet Star News in 2013, and again during his Happy Together appearance in 2017, Yoon Shi-yoon revealed his ambivalent dating style which is similar to his role in Flower Boy Next Door, “If I start to fall in love, I start out slow. I look after them from afar for about 6-7 months and then become aggressive like Enrique Geum. I think I do that because it takes a long time to express my feelings so I turned out to be more fearless.”
In addition, Yoon Shi-yoon said that he dates with the mindset of giving all his best. Some of the examples were that he once bought a pork stew rice from Busan as his past girlfriend was longing to eat the dish, and got a Japanese sponge cake from Japan for his other past girlfriend, “I’m kind of the style who stops thinking rationally when I decide I should do something, even if it does not have to do with dating.”
Regarding dating in the public, Yoon Shi-yoon said that he’s not against it, but oftentimes he prefers to not disclose the relationship, “It will most likely be because of her, my girlfriend. If our thoughts about revealing our relationship are the same, I will reveal it.” Yoon Shi-yoon also described what he’s looking for in a woman, “I like feminine women. I wish for that person to know what the meaning of “beautiful” is.

The more layers you peel away, the more new and unexpected sides of him appear, and they are all charismatic”. On the other hand, Yoon Shi-yoon had to compare the charms of Park Shin-hye and his previous co-star, Shin Se-kyung, to which he replied, diplomatically, “Both of them display a carefree attitude that I could not possibly have. They have a lovely and charming image”.
During their appearance in SBS’s Strong Heart, Yoon Shi-yoon offered clarification about the picture of himself and Park Shin-hye at an event in which he was suspected of staring at Park Shin-hye’s breasts. He explained that Park Shin-hye’s red dress was so long that he kept stepping on it.
The viewers of the show weren’t satisfied, so Yoon Shi-yoon directly asked Park Shin-hye to explain in detail, to which the actress agreed, “The bottom fringe of my dress tore a bit so my heels kept getting stuck in it. If you look closely, he was looking at my feet.”
Well, that was such an unfortunate misunderstanding!
