That was when Ivy became a superstar and made her name in the entertainment industry. That was also when her dating rumors with Kim Heechul first broke out. The two were reported to be in a romantic relationship, but both Kim Heechul and Ivy denied the rumors, which faded away over time.
The sexy actress and singer shared that after the dating rumors died down, she and Kim Heechul were still able to be good friends, but the scandal also meant that Kim Heechul suddenly stopped contacting her. Ivy added that Kim Heechul was changed after the scandal, and changed his phone number without letting Ivy know.

Kim Heechul was known as Ivy’s #1 fan, and in reaction to Kim Heechul’s shady moves, Ivy once tried to bump into him (intentionally or not) during a broadcast.
