Whether fans like to admit it or not, our favorite idol members date, and that’s a fact we just have to get used to and celebrate. Former A-JAX member Dowoo opened up about the ridiculous measures he went through, as a former boy group member, in order to date his now-wife (his girlfriend at the time).
Dowoo and Hyejin met while they were both promoting in Japan. Hyejin was active as a model at the time, and Dowoo was promoting as a member of the popular boy group A-JAX. Following the news of A-JAX’s disbandment and the members’ contract expirations, Dowoo wed Hyejin in May of 2019. While they are happily married now, the two discussed the extreme measures they went through to date during Dowoo’s boy group days on Channel A‘s Erotic Couple.
They first talked about the time when they got caught at a hotel together by a hotel employee.
We were on our way up to the hotel room when we got caught by a hotel employee.
When she was asked how they were caught, she explained it was because they technically “broke” a hotel rule.
We got caught because it was a room meant for one person, but there were two people going up.
Hyejin further revealed that Dowoo’s label DSP Entertainment eventually found out about their relationship because they were notified of their hotel meet-up.
Later, his label found out. They found out about everything. We wrote apology letters. But all I thought about was, ‘How and where do we keep meeting now?’
The now-married couple had to get creative. They shared the crazy story of how Hyejin ended up in a suitcase!
About a month later, Dowoo comes to me with a massive suitcase. It was huge.
The former model revealed that the suitcase was all her husband’s outrageous idea.
He told me, ‘Go inside the bag.’ So I took off my shoes and slid right in.
Hyejin admitted how scared she was during her time inside the suitcase.
This was my first time riding inside a suitcase, so honestly, I was terrified. All I could hear were clunking sounds, but I didn’t know where I was being taken or where we were going.
It was the former A-JAX member’s turn to share his side of the story as he revealed the hilarious actuality of the situation.
The plastic of the suitcase was pretty thin. So if my wife was laying down on her side, that part of the suitcase would protrude outward.
Dowoo shared that the suitcase ended up looking completely disfigured because of his wife.
The suitcase was no longer a rectangle. It looked completely crushed on the side.
The story doesn’t end there as the former boy group member shared the potential horror headline that could have happened due to his wife’s hair.
My wife’s hair was stuck in the suitcase’s zipper and it was sticking out. I realized that if someone were being attentive and saw that, it could have ended terribly.
Dowoo ends the bizarre story by concluding how their suitcase escapade ended.
At the time, my members were on the same floor. Whenever my members would run into me, they’d ask, ‘Oh, where are you going?’ And I’d answer, ‘I’m just going to go eat.’
When we were in the hotel room, we’d turn on the television super loud and keep the hair dryer on.
It’s well known that idols have to take crazy measures to date in secret, but this may just be one of the most insane methods! If you want to catch the married couple talking about their outrageous story, you can watch it down below.
