Ji Hyun Woo was discharged from the army yesterday after completing his two years mandatory military service. In order of the most shocking things to emerge from his media meet-and-greet outside his army base was hearing his awkwardly brush off answering any questions about Yoo In An and seeing him show off her pearly whites encased in braces. The former is just randomly strange while the latter is super adorable and a smart timing move during the time he’s out of the entertainment limelight. Ji Hyun Woo is confirmed now for the upcoming KBS Mon-Tues drama Trot Lovers so I’m expecting his teen boy braces to come off in the next few days. The gathered media took note that his girlfriend Yoo In Na was not at his discharge welcome though her agency has indicated she is currently in China for work activities.
I don’t think her not being there is odd especially if she has prior work commitments, what was very eyebrow raising was the answer Ji Hyun Woo gave when asked about his relationship with her. He said “That question is a bit…..that’s a tough one to answer.” He left it at that which naturally led to a giant thud dropping in the hearts of their shippers. The press immediately queried Yoo In Na’s side to see if anything was amiss and her agency YG Entertainment responded that the couple was still dating and things are fine. Er, okay, I guess that clears it right up. I personally found Ji Hyun Woo’s response pretty telling as is so I’ll wait to see how things shake out in the next few weeks to see if this couple really is a-okay. KBS is still looking around for a leading lady for Trot Lovers with IU‘s name at the top of the list but she’s not yet confirmed. A big welcome back to Ji Hyun Woo!
