The story of Leeteuk’s love triangle with a woman and a chaebol(extremely wealthy) celebrity was featured on this week’s episode of Rumor Has It.
Rumor Has It is a talk show that addresses all the hottest issues in the world of Korean pop culture.
According to the hosts, the incident occurred back in 2006 when Leeteuk was still a rookie idol. Super Junior had debuted in 2005 and was just starting to gain more popularity.
One day, on his way to his schedule, Leeteuk coincidentally ran into a woman who he felt completely in love with at first sight.
As a celebrity, however, it wasn’t easy for him to openly ask a woman out. So what he did was ask his dear friend Shindong to help him out.
Shindong eventually succeeded in getting the woman’s number and Leeteuk began talking to her only to be rejected because of the pressure she felt of dating a celebrity.
The reporter telling the story added that she completely understood the woman as being the girlfriend of an idol was an extremely difficult position whether or not the idol was super wealthy. According to the reporter, even if a celebrity is not in an open relationship, fans know about it and the woman probably knew the hardships that would follow.
That didn’t stop Leeteuk from continuing to pursue her, however. One day, he went to go see the woman in his company car rather than his own so as to reduce the pressure she would feel and prepared a CD filled with songs that she enjoyed listening to.
He approached the woman, who was older than he was, in a way as to make her feel like he was just an ordinary person like her, rather than a celebrity. And as a result of his efforts, the woman eventually accepted the idol and the two began officially dating.
