On the August 7 episode of JTBCs Please Take Care Of My Refrigerator, FTISLANDs Lee Hong Ki made a guest appearance alongside actor Kim Seung Soo, and spoke about dating publicly.
During the program, Lee Hong Ki revealed himself as a fan of Song Hye Kyo and said, When news of the marriage came out, I was completely shocked. I was a fan of Song Hye Kyo since I was young. I wasnt hurt [by the marriage news], but I thought Is this how fans feel?’
He then revealed, I dont I should date publicly [as a celebrity]. Your fans decrease by about half. When I [previously] revealed I was dating, I had a concert in Japan afterwards and the number of my fans shrunk by half. Also, the atmosphere amongst the other half that did show up felt weird. So now, even if I am dating, Im going to say Im not. I revealed my relationship because Im the type of person that cant lie, but Ive decided on this matter. Thats how big of a blow [my experience] was.
Do you agree with Lee Hong Kis sentiments?
