Jin Goo guested on the July 9th broadcast of SBS’s entertainment program “My Little Old Boy”.

Jin Goo appeared in the popular drama “Descendants of the Sun” as Sergeant Seo Dae Young and acted alongside Song Joong Ki. Jin Goo, who earned the nickname “Nation’s Manly Guy” after that drama, shared the anecdote of when he endured the pain because of his image, saying “One day, a nurse at the hospital made my blood vessel burst because she trembled so much. It swelled up and I couldn’t move but I just said, ‘It’s okay’”.

Moreover, the actor referred to singer Gummy as the person who connected him and his wife. Jin Goo said, “I met Gummy after a long time, and she brought a friend along. That friend showed me pictures of a woman. That’s how I ended up being forced into a blind date”, adding, “It was my first blind date ever, and that person is now my wife”, sharing his fateful love story.

Regarding their first meeting, Jin Goo said “On our first date, I wanted to look cool so I took her to a pojangmacha (street food stall)”, adding “I wanted to look nice, so I prepared many snacks. However, she told me that she didn’t eat after 8 p.m., so after waiting for a while, I hailed a taxi and sent her off, and I sat there alone feeling strange.” Recalling his feelings at that time, the actor said, “I felt like I would meet her again and marry her”.

Later, Seo Jang Hoon verified his actual height due to the suspicions of him being 3m tall.
