Son Jin-young Talks About Men’s Psychology In ‘Real Men’ With Sam Hammington


The MBC show Real Man is probably the hottest variety show in Korea at the moment. The rising star of the show, comedian Sam Hammington, released an honest interview with Son Jin-young. In the August issue of the fashion magazine Cosmopolitan, the two guys talked about how men think about women. They had a talk battle about questions including ‘all men care about is looks’, ‘men prefer large breasts’, and ‘men will lose interest if a woman makes the first move.’

Although they mostly had different opinions, they did share an opinion and agreed on one question. Cosmopolitan asked if men think differently about women for dating and for marriage. Both of them answered with ‘No’. In the interview, Sam Hammington said that he knows more about Korean women than about Korean guys. Son Jin-young said he is a typical Korean guy. The rest of their interview and the result of their interesting talk battle will be released in the August issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.

Son Jin-young Bid Farewell To Real Men


Even though four new members will join MBC’s Real Men, the military reality show program, the event also bid farewell to the three old members, Jang Hyuk, Son Jin-young, and Ryu Soo-young.
All three of them have been on the show for almost a year. In a letter, Jang Hyuk said that he considered this hiatus to only be a “long vacation” – giving fans hope that they will see the three of them returning someday.
