Choi Jin Hyuk recently admitted that his profile does not reveal his true age.
In his interview with SBS E! News, he confessed, “If you search my name on a portal site, it says that my birthday is early 1985, but it’s actually early 1986.”
Because he had an early birthdate, he was met with lots of troubles and was traumatized when he was put in school with a group of students who were born the year before him. He revealed that his male classmates would force him to kneel and admit that he’s their junior. He stated, “In elementary school, I used to get into fist fights because of my age. This continued all the way up until college, so I’ve been sensitive about the topic since a young age, and it’s a source of stress for me.”
Thus, he changed his birthday three years ago.
“Now that a lot of people I know know me as being born in ’85, I felt weird changing the profile back, so I just left it. However, it is just the profile that I’ve left; my friends and acquaintances know my age. So there’s no problem there. In any case, I do feel it is right to have the correct age on my profile, and I have plans to request a change.”
