On the January 17th broadcast of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Happy Together‘, Girls’ Generation‘s Hyoyeon and YoonA discussed the behind-the-scenes story of Sooyoung‘s recent ‘scandal’ with Won Bin.
Hyoyeon shared, “Sooyoung did a [screen]capture. She sent a text that read, ‘I got into a scandal with Won Bin. Isn’t it funny?’”, revealing Sooyoung’s first reaction to the news when it broke out. But after the scandal became the #1 most searched headline and started to become more serious, “Sooyoung suffered a bit emotionally,” Hyoyeon said.
YoonA also explained how the rumors came about surprising the other guests and MCs on set. “Won Bin oppa had been photographed going for a swim, so a post titled ‘Won Bin sooyoung’ [‘sooyoung’ also means ‘swimming’ in Korean] came up, and netizens thought that ‘Sooyoung’ was referring to Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung,” she explained.
