Before we learn more about whether Yoo Yeon-seok has a girlfriend, let’s dig into his answers to questions about love, marriage, and public relationships.

When he was asked about his dating style, he answered, “I’m not like Kang Dong-joo (his role on Romantic Doctor Kim) that had a crush over five years, but I’ve liked someone for about a year. I’m not too direct with my intentions, but I’m not shy either.”

“If there is someone that I like, I’m the type that might not be able to speak, and run away. I’m the type that actually confesses my feeling towards her. But from there, i may be a little bit hesitant.” He laughed while he continued.

When the topic of public relationships comes up, he answers it immediately. “I haven’t thought that much if I want to date publicly. If both of us want to, then we can. There are a lot couples these days who come out with their relationship, only to break up after. So I think I’ll consider when it comes to that decision.”

Past Love Story

Beginning with his past love story, Yoo Yeon-seok says that he enlisted in the air force because of his girlfriend, who was living near the air force airfield and told him to join the air force team so that she can visit him more often. Guess what, he actually did it! What a sweet and romantic guy he is.

Unfortunately, the two of them broke up while he was still in the training center. Yoo Yeon-seok said, “My ex-girlfriend cheated on me as soon I was enlisted to the military.” The first letter he got in the military was a Dear John letter, “I was in the midst of 12 weeks of training. I cried so much back then,” he said, bitterly.
