On this week’s episode of Strong Heart, the guest-starring celebrities shared a few love stories and some heartbreaking tales. Super Junior’s Leeteuk shared some of this as well.
He started, “My love story… That reminds me of a time, around 3 years ago, when I was really heartbroken. After I debuted, I needed to be extra responsible since I’m the leader. I even had to check my own feelings and get it approved before I could fall in love. But one day, around three years ago, I saw a woman passing by while I was heading off to complete the things on my schedule, and she literally shining. That was the first time I thought, ‘Wow, so a person can fall in love at first sight, after all!’ “
He continued, “Since it might’ve been awkward because I was on my way to work, I asked Shindong to get her contact information for me, and I told her, ‘I’m Leeteuk. I like you so much that I think I may be in love with you. I’d really like for us to meet and talk,’ and she responded by saying, ‘It’s a little awkward since you’re an idol and all.’ However, in order to win her heart, I did a lot of things like driving the 25,000 kilogram Super Junior schedule car and burning her CDs with songs I liked, and hoped she would like them as well. I parked the SuJu car in a park and played Kim Hye Rim’s DDD, and she told me that my musical taste was similar to hers. She then told me that she was thirsty and I went to the convenience store to buy her a bottle of cola and a bottle of cider (a Korean drink similar to Sprite). I guess she felt my love, since she thanked me.”
He went on, “I told her, ‘I don’t tell just anyone that I like them. I truly want to meet you,’ and we started a relationship. However, I couldn’t get in contact with her for a while, until a week later when she told me, ‘Jung Soo (Leeteuk’s real name)-shi, I really want to watch a movie.’ It was really risky for me to do that with her in broad daylight since articles might be published about us, but I didn’t care and went with her anyway. I was thinking of even giving up my career as an idol if she had asked me to get married with her. When I was at the theater, people around me said things like, ‘Isn’t that Leeteuk?’ But I didn’t care and linked arms with her and everything. I was even thinking of dating her publicly – that’s how much I liked her. However, I happened to see her cellphone and the person calling her was another famous celebrity. I pretended not to see and left her to take the call since she looked uncomfortable. Then one day I brought her home in a used car, but there was a brand new foreign-brand luxury car in front of her house waiting for her. I found out much later that I had been two-timed. My life after that incident felt like hell. She didn’t call or text me after that incident nor could I meet her. I tried to call her several times, but she wouldn’t pick up the phone and I fell into a 6-month slump.”
However, after sharing this sad tale, he smiled and said, “But after telling this story and getting it off my chest, I feel so much better. I have no bitter feelings anymore, and I’m ready for a new relationship. And to the girl who broke my heart, thank you for an experience of love at first sight – it was amazing. I wish you much happiness.”
OMG I felt so bad for Teukie after reading this! He does seem the type to be falling in love at first sight, though…. I hope that next time he finds someone who will appreciate him for who is he and not what he does. Damn woman who was two-timing him…and with another celebrity? Shame on you!! ;p
