In the February 1 episode of JTBC‘s Knowing Bros, Sooyoung and Kang Hodong discussed the event that made her the most nervous in her life.
Kang Hodong gave her three options to choose from: the night before Girls’ Generation‘s debut, the night before her first drama shooting, and the night before her dating news with actor Jung Kyungho was revealed.
Out of the three, she easily picked her dating news as the most nerve-racking moment in her life. She felt as if her world was over because there were only a few public relationships at that time, and fans were even less open to it than they are now.
Sooyoung and Jung Kyungho were first revealed to be dating in January 2014, right before Girls’ Generation was set to promote “Mr. Mr”.
She previously expressed how she had a hard time back then because the members were marketed as being single women, and people would only talk about her dating scandal.
In spite of all the hardships they’ve been through, Sooyoung and Jung Kyungho are celebrating their 8-year anniversary this year.
