Cha Eun Woo: Girlfriend & Dating Life
About two years ago, on Radio Star, the idol was asked if he was dating anybody. The question is no surprise since all the news channels in Korea are constantly in need of knowing the stars’ dating lives. But, what’s interesting is that in this episode, he revealed that he was asked out by a female celebrity!
He said, “I have never dated since I debuted, and I had only been asked out by a celebrity once.” And what’s more, this celebrity too, is an idol! Apparently, she texted him her intentions after they were introduced through mutual friends.
How did he reply, you ask?
He never replied, and now, whenever they see each other, they just greet each other awkwardly!
Cha Eun-Woo revealed that he would only date someone after he has got to know them personally, rather than through some mutual friends. In his own words, “I want to date someone after meeting them naturally.”
Hold your breath, Arohas, for he did admit that he used to date someone back in his trainee days! Although nobody knows who she is, she definitely is someone who thousands of fans of Eunwoo are jealous of.
