Former Wonder Girls member Hyerim and her fiancé Shin Min Chul talked about their hopes for the future!
The couple, who went public with their relationship this spring after dating for seven years, will be tying the knot on July 5.
When asked how she was feeling as she prepared for their wedding, Hyerim remarked, “Each and every day is a happy one for me these days. After deciding to freely go public with our relationship, we received so many blessings from other people and are now even holding a wedding. It feels like a dream.”
As for their plans regarding children, Hyerim replied, “We haven’t made any concrete plans yet, but I’d like to have one daughter and one son.” Shin Min Chul chimed in, “Ideally, I’d like to have a daughter that looks exactly like Hyerim, but she might end up looking like me, so I think a son would be better.”
The Taekwondo athlete went on to share his hopes for their future kids, commenting, “There are many actors like Jet Li, Bruce Lee, and Jackie Chan that have become world-famous stars through their background in Chinese martial arts, but there aren’t yet any actors who have became world-famous through Taekwondo. If possible, I’d like to raise a world-famous movie star with a background in Taekwondo.”
Hyerim also revealed which celebrity couples she considered her role models. “I’d like to become like Choi Min Soo and June Kang,” she shared, “or like Cha In Pyo and Shin Ae Ra. I want to live happily while bickering like Choi Min Soo and June Kang, and I also want to live a beautiful life that includes meaningful work like volunteering, just like Cha In Pyo and Shin Ae Ra.”
Finally, Shin Min Chul talked about just how smitten he was with his fiancée. “I have a very rigid personality, and I’m the type who is stubborn about something up until the very end,” he explained. “But I can’t be like that at all when it comes to Hyerim. Even in moments when I need to be firm, I can’t bring myself to do it.”
Hyerim and Shin Min Chul are currently starring together in the new MBC reality show “Don’t Be Jealous.”
