Astro’s Cha Eunwoo Recalls Awkward Date With Female IdolGrace
Idol singer-actor Cha Eunwoo (차은우) recently sat down and spilled some tea on his past dating experiences.
The 22-year-old made his appearance on MBC’s “Radio Star”. During the session, he recalled the time when he was asked out by a female idol for a date.
During the session, Eunwoo revealed that he received a text message from the girl. He further added that they were introduced to each other through mutual friends. However, he decided not to pursue the girl.
Instead, the only interaction that was shared between the two was only backstage on a TV programme, with both of them passing by each other. “I didn’t exactly reject her, I just didn’t respond. Afterwards, we just awkwardly greeted each other and just passed by,” said Eunwoo during the chat.
Additionally, the “Rookie Historian Goo Haeryung” actor was asked whether if he was popular back when he was in high school. He responded by saying that he was not really famous despite being a class president as well as a captain for his basketball team.
“I was not popular (back in the day). To be considered popular, you will usually receive boxes of chocolates, right? I only had some chocolates left on my desk,” he further added. But he did admit that he was in a relationship way back before he even made his official debut. “I’ve dated before. Way back when I was in high school during my trainee days,” he confessed.
Most of K-netizens expressed their surprise upon knowing that he was close to dating the female idol. On the other hand, some also pointed out that it is understandable for the Astro member to go through such situation since his friendly and approachable image really helps in making everyone feel comfortable around him. Check out some of their comments here:
- “Even among celebrities, he’s exceptionally handsome without even plastic surgery…I think the women would feel too pressured to ask him out at all. People who are too pretty or too handsome have surprisingly little experience with dating because their standards are so high”
- “He was probably too good-looking for them to approach…”
- “He’s probably the top among all celebrities his age…I’m a guy and even I wish I could live just one day with that face..”
- “It’s too hard for people to approach him because of his aura.”
We really applaud Eunwoo for being very vocal and open when it comes to his dating life. Do you think it is okay for other K-pop idols to do the same as what he did? Share with us your thoughts.
