North Korean defector and BJ Han Song Yi revealed on Ji Suk Jin‘s radio show that she defected to South Korea because of Lee Min Ho.
After watching his drama The Heirs, she decided to defect the very next day.
“I thought it would be so nice if I could go to South Korea, succeed like Girls’ Generation’s Yoona, and marry Lee Minho.”

She found out that the reality in South Korea was much different than the dramas.
Han Song Yi also revealed that dramas like My Love From the Stars and Descendants of the Sun are very popular in North Korea as well! She learned through a broker that her cousin even placed a bet on whether Song Joong Ki was dead or not in Descendants of the Sun!
