“I want you to be sad, want to die and be regretful because of me.
No matter who you look at, you should only think of me.
You should never suspect anything of me.
You can’t concern yourself with my matters because it bothers me.
I’m good at swearing.
You need to always be there for me because I crave attention.
You have to be quick on reading me because I have a hot temper.
I’ll kill you if you try to school me.
Ah…. buy me some medicine. I get sick frequently.
I have an irregular pulse and need surgery for it.

Now, try and love me.
Throw me away if you can’t.
So at least I can cry sorrowfully.”

[+48, -2] I don’t know about Yoona and Kim Soo-Hyun, but I know that Kim Soo-Hyun has psycho personalities. When he had no popularity during his debut days, the pastor in my church knew him, so he told me about it. He was dating someone when he debuted, and she broke up with him. He rebelled and said he was going to kill himself and made all sorts of mess, so the girl had a tough time.

[+27, -0] Yeah, my teacher in my speaking academy has a friend who works in the entertainment industry. He said Kim Soo-Hyun’s personalities are psycho and perverted, so Yoona couldn’t take it anymore and broke up with him.

[+104, -34] It’s real. Kim Soo-Hyun and Yoona dated, but he’s a psycho, so Yoona turned to dislike him, and they broke up.

[+26, -1] I heard about Kim Soo-Hyun and Yoona so many times. Years ago, I saw a picture of a female idol and a male actor with masks at a theater, and they looked like Yoona and Kim Soo-Hyun.

[+56, -1] You can tell that Kim Soo-Hyun is an attention seeker and a psycho from his pre-debut photos. I don’t understand why people praise him so much ㅋㅋ
