Perhaps there is a good commercial reason why entertainment agencies want to ban their artists from dating.
On yesterday’s broadcast of SBS’s “Strong Heart” where Se7en appeared as a guest, he openly talked about his now open relationship, “Once a photo I took with Park Han Byul was leaked, we publicly announced our relationship and started dating comfortably… I wrote about my feelings on my mini homepage and it caused a ruckus online. But I felt a heavy weight was lifted off of my shoulders. It was so refreshing.”
Although he felt relieved, some of his fans did not take the news well with 100,000 people leaving his fansite.
In the interview, he also revealed that the leaked photos actually saved their ten year relationship, “Our relationship never grew stale, but it became challenging at the 7 year mark… I was in the US to advance into the American market, and because we were far apart from each other, we fought often.”
Just after they decided to break up, Park Han Byul called him to tell him that photos of them together have been leaked. After meeting up to discuss how to resolve the issue, they had the opportunity to tell each other that neither of them actually want to break up and that the whole issue was just a big misunderstanding.”
He revealed that it was through the leaking that got them back together.
A rare story of how a leaked photo can save a relationship!
