Minwoo makes a bad first impression
Actor Gu Hye Sun and singer-actor Lee Minwoo (or just “M”) first worked together in the sitcom Nonstop 5, but they had their first meeting some time before that.
And, apparently, Gu Hye Sun was less than thrilled.
On the cable program Park Kyung Rim’s Wonderful Outing, Minwoo had a segment where he’d call his friends and ask them to meet up. Lots of entertainers have been the recipients of the call, and on a recent episode airing October 26, he called Gu Hye Sun. She was home resting (she’s currently filming the historical drama series King and I), and despite the late hour, she came out for her friend.
Others who’d showed up included Kim Min Sun, Kang Kyung Joon (also from Nonstop 5 — I love that they’re all still buddies), Kim Chang Ryeol, Shim Eun Ji, and Kil Gun. The MC and recently married comedienne Park Kyung Rim asked for a show of hands for whoever liked Minwoo best of the six Shinhwa members. Everyone raised their hands, except for one person — Gu Hye Sun.

She raised her hand belatedly (and reluctantly), prompting Park Kyung Rim to ask the reason.
Gu Hye Sun explained the first time she met Minwoo, in her rookie days in the industry when she went up to the stage at a Shinhwa concert and asked Minwoo for a picture. But the performance had just ended and Minwoo told her, “Just a moment, I’ll take it a little later.” Having put on a tiring performance, he spoke somewhat harshly and didn’t end up taking the picture, leaving Gu Hye Sun disappointed.
Park Kyung Rim asked, “Then when he joined the cast of Nonstop 5 [Minwoo was a late addition to the series, appearing starting episode 195], you must not have been happy, huh?” and Gu Hye Sun admitted, “A bit…,” causing everyone to burst into laughter.
But, fortunately, the bad first impression eventually eased and the two are now close friends. Hey, the girl took time out of her busy filming schedule to show up, so she must be over the slight now. They must be on good enough terms for her to joke (partially?) on a TV program about Minwoo not being her favorite Shinhwa member. Or who knows, maybe it’s true. Maybe she’s got a crush on one of the other members. I’d bet on Jun Jin.
