On a recent taping of the variety show Happy Together, it was revealed that the Queen of Kpop Lee Hyori is actually an idol dating gossip junkie. KARA's Hara told everyone that once Hyori called her to find out which of your favorite Kpop idols were dating undercover. To this Hyori admitted that she was into the secret world of idol dating since her own idol heyday as a member of Fin.K.L.
Hyori admitted during the show, who is hosted by her 'brother' Yoo Jae Suk, that she secretly had two cell phones during her Fin.K.L days. One cell phone her management company knew about and the other they didn't. With her 'secret' cell phone she would gossip with other idols about who was dating. Being a sunbae and being as busy as she is, she's not as 'into' the current idol gossip as she would want and therefore calls up some of her close hoobaes to get the latest scoop.
Being able to personally appreciate the dating conundrum of idols, Hyori even offered the following, "If any idol members want to secretly date, I'll offer them my house to use." Hyori has always been kind of a rebel and has done what she wanted, I'm sure a lot of her hoobaes thinks she's the coolest of sunbaes. Of course now, Hyori's house is probably totally on the 'off limits' list of all the entertainment companies making her 'Idol Love Nest' over before it was ever started.
