Han So-Hee Targets Hyeri in Fiery Social Media Post

Han So-Hee and the rumours surrounding her relationship with Ryu Joon-Yeol once again takes centre stage. On March 29, Han So-Hee made a decisive move to clear the air about the nature of her relationship with Ryu Joon-Yeol through a now-deleted Instagram post.

The My Name actress strongly refuted the allegations that her relationship with Ryu Joon-Yeol was merely a ‘transit relationship’ … This phrase labels relationships as being temporary or pathways to something else.

In a bold step, Han So-Hee addressed the rumours head-on showing her determination to set the record straight about her personal life. In her message, she also called upon Hyeri, Ryu Joon-Yeol’s previous partner, suggesting that her input or response could provide clarity aid in quelling the ongoing speculations.

Her lengthy Instagram post read:

I can’t stand these fake allegations any longer. I chased my happiness, and now I am here. I dated around, and neither I nor the people I were serious, and I ended up wasting a lot of time. It was then, when I had turned 30 and was looking for direction, that I met this person.

The exact date that we met was November 2023. (We had never seen each other before. I am going to ignore the comments that say otherwise. We had never met publicly or privately and we don’t have any mutual acquaintances, and I purchased the bear through Kakao Talk in 2021.

Different from my past relationships, looks weren’t everything, and because he held me from going off the ledge due to me doing whatever I wanted, I felt that my body and heart became healthier, and just like any other couple, I felt he was someone that I needed. Most important, however, is the fact that I would have never inserted myself in someone else’s relationship.

They (Ryu Jun-Yeol and Hyeri) indeed broke up last year. They indeed ended their relationship by wishing each other well. (I am writing this not to reveal their relationship but to prove that he didn’t leave her for me).

But Sunbaenim (Hyeri), when you wrote in your apology that he said he wanted to meet in November, it wasn’t because he wanted to get back together. I can’t reveal the reason why because I’m not the one who said it. If this is a lie, you can release articles saying so, or you, who, despite all of my attempts, I couldn’t reach, can contact me directly, Sunbaenim.

I, too, am frustrated that a person directly involved in this is staying silent. This means that I might be writing this, having been fooled by his lies and that he did leave you for me. Because of this, please understand that what I am writing has nothing to do with my emotions and is only based on the facts and our respective agencies.

I am not a fool to write this based on a one-sided story, and I don’t want to bring further controversy to the fans who once supported me, my agency’s CEO, and its employees. I am writing this because there are people I need to protect.

What I am trying to say is that although the breakup article came out in November, you guys had already broken up. We can stop with the media play because the facts are facts.

But why are you casting doubt on articles that say you guys had already broken up and making it seem like articles saying that he did leave you for me are true? I can’t understand you. It’s also hilarious to me that half of the commenters criticizing me are from burner accounts.

If you are going to criticize me, do it with real facts. And although this is off-topic, hearing people talk badly about my family, my upbringing, and my appearance has given me a new perspective.

I have apologized. I don’t know if it reached you as I can’t get in touch with you, but I hope you rest assured knowing that I did. I also apologize to your fans if I acted out of place. Even if time has passed, I’ll always acknowledge mistakes.

What I don’t understand, however, is what was so funny about your former lover getting a new girlfriend? I want to ask why you would take the contents of a text message that wasn’t about getting back together and making it seem like it had significant meaning and, by doing so, making it seem you were wronged by his new relationship 4 months later and then staying silent about it? I am not asking for your pity, and this isn’t to get an apology despite receiving countless hate comments thanks to your words. I am simply asking out of curiosity.

Also, I want to ask why people are hate me, when I get criticized for wearing a friendship ring, for smiling at reporters who waited for me in the airport on a cold day, and for not smiling at reporters, as if I didn’t have a choice (but to receive hate). I just want to ask why you hate me. I’m sure if I upload this, my agency will be criticized for not being ale to control me, I’ll be told that I am playing the victim, and people will write that they are tired of the drama. I know. It seems people want me to explain some parts and want me to stay silent on others. I am not sure what people want from me. I am writing this because I don’t think I should respond with silence.

It is true that I make a living off of the public’s love and trust. I would like to apologize once again for not handling this in a more mature way. But I really hate (that people think Ryu Jun Yeol left Hyeri for me). I am not conjuring up any of this. So please, let me know what I did wrong.

And to those who criticize me for writing this and claim I am not sorry enough, I also don’t want to be kind to you, so please don’t consume my work and hate me to the very end; please lose all interest in me and live the rest of your life for the sake of your own happiness. Lastly, I would like to apologize to everyone who has been affected by the controversy. – Han So-Hee
