It’s no secret that dating is difficult for hard-working idols. Fans will always come first.
But, despite disbanding the idol group in 2001, Moon Hee Jun admits that he and the other H.O.T band members, who are all in their 30s, are unlikely to ever get married.
The singer, who has released eight solo albums since leaving the group, revealed on today’s episode of KBS’ Happy Together: “My original goal was to get married at 35, but I’m [Korean age] 35 right now, so I failed my goal.
“There aren’t any H.O.T members who have gotten married yet. Everyone has been in situations where they could have gotten married, but they didn’t. I think it’s because they have way too high standards.”
One reason? “I’m old, but my mental age is still pretty immature, so my ideal woman is pretty unique.”
Describing his type, he said with a straight face: “I like women who are a lot younger than me. I like women who are 12 years younger than I am… I want her to have a better body than I do.”
Weddings aside, some of the H.O.T guys have still found time to date. In October it was revealed that Tony An, 34, and Choi Ji-yeon had continued seeing each other after filming SBS reality dating show Couple Jjak.
