South Korean musician Brian was a guest on Thursday's episode of Happy Together 3 where he opened up about almost asking out Gummy when she was already in a relationship.
Brian did not know that Gummy was dating Jo Jung Suk and he would have asked her out if others hadn't informed him about Gummy being in a long-term relationship with the actor.
"I didn't know she was dating. I don't watch TV," Brian said, adding that he became interested in Gummy while they were preparing for a concert. "She was cute and would laugh at my jokes," he explained. "On the day of the concert, everyone told me. That she has a boyfriend. In the end, I realized she was just nice."
Gummy and Jo Jung Suk are going strong, and their fans got a glimpse of their daily interaction in a recent episode of MBC's I Live Alone. The episode showed Gummy, Park Jung Hyun and another mutual friend having a casual girls' night in when she got a phone call from Jo Jung Suk.
"Where are you? You must be tired," she tells him. "You've worked hard," Gummy says before hanging up.
Park Jung Hyun later explained that the way Gummy and Jo Jung Suk talk to each other shows how much they respect each other. Lee Guk Joo added, "I know a family who's close to her, and they always tell me if I want to date, I should watch and learn from Gummy."
Jo Jung Suk and Gummy confirmed their romance in February 2015, but they seem to be in no hurry to get married. In a recent interview, the 35-year-old actor said he realises it's time for them to settle down, but their work schedules come in the way of marriage plans.
"I'm at the age, but I don't think we have the time right now. We're going to marry for sure, but I think it's not the time.
"She's also very busy, and I'm pretty busy myself," he added.
