I’m not sure about you, but it looks like Korean male idols share a common preference for noonas (cue: SHINee’s “Noona Is So Pretty”) Is it because older ladies have a sense of maturity and sophistication that entices our dear pretty boys?

FT Island’s Lee Hong-ki recently appeared on KBS 2TV’s National Talk Show Hello, where he made a surprising revelation, “I’ve actually dated someone eight years older than me.”

As if this hadn’t shocked everyone present on the set, Hong-ki then went on to remark, “Aren’t you supposed to do a candy kiss until the candy melts all the way?” This comment was made with reference to the famous candy kiss scene in the drama IRIS.

The episode will be aired on February 14th.

Hong-ki may be young, but he definitely seems to have tons of dating experience under his belt. I wonder if that noona happens to be in the entertainment industry too-now that would be a juicy scandal!
