National gymnast Son Yeon-jae revealed her first love story on TV.

On JTBC’s food talk show, ‘Please Take Care of My Refrigerator’, Son Yeon-jae and actor Cha Tae-hyun appeared as guests on the 14th.

During the recording of the show, MC Kim Sung-joo and Ahn Jung-hwan asked her, “Isn’t it wonderful that Cha Tae-hyun succeeded in marrying with his first love”. And to the question about her first love, Son Yeon-jae answered, “I’ve had a relationship before. But it was very hard as it was a long distance relationship between Russia and Korea. Even if he were to come to Russia, it was hard because I only had one day off per week during that time”.

As the MCs kept asking her questions trying to find who her boyfriend was, Son said, “I’ve never talked about this kind of thing before. Is this even allowed?” and made other people in the studio laugh.
