However, it was someone else who had the same name and was just commenting on the article. For a little while, she became a very understanding ex-girlfriend.

There was the incident of a Kim Tae Hee, who also was the talk of the town with her marriage news in August simply because of having the same name as the famous actress Kim Tae Hee.
