Choi Apologizes For Posting A Photo
Instagram is a very mainstream form of social media nowadays. Millions of photos are uploaded each day, and still thousands of people join in each day.
As Choi is also updated on social media, he sometimes posts encouraging bible verses on his twitter account, posts personal pictures on his instagram account and posts hot topics on his facebook account.
However, in August 2015, he once posted a photo that is not his on his instagram account. It was a photo that he grabbed from the internet and he forgot to credit the person who actually owns the photo.
Choi, being a humble and sincere human being, apologized to the person as soon as he could. He added to the caption “I am sorry @SANDRA160173, for using your photo without mentioning and permission.
The picture and William S. Borrough’s words are so great and touchable. Once again, I am truly sorry.”
His fans were overwhelmed by his pure sincerity and praised his actions after they found out about the incident. They believe that Choi did not intentionally do it.
Choi Says His Last Words Before Entering Military
On the 18th of November 2015, Choi posted photos in his instagram account with captions containing words of goodbye.
He also posted a photo of him with celebrity chef Sam Kim, posing for the camera with his tongue playfully out while showing his new hairstyle.
He had to cut his hair for the sake of his enlistment to the military. People were awed by his bravery.
He also said his last words in a radio show, dedicating his message to his beloved fans. November 19th is the day that he has to enter the military, not alone, but also with his good friend Changmin from TVXQ.
Siwon was rumored to be dating Chinese model Liu Wen after they appeared as an onscreen couple in the variety show “We Are In Love” which is the Chinese version of the South Korean variety show, “We Got Married.”
However, the management agency of Lui Wen denied such dating rumors.
He was also previously rumored to be dating Girl’s Generation member Yoona, SM Entertainment former trainee Stella Kim and South Korean actress Kim Yoon Seo.
While Choi is away for his enlistment, rumored girlfriend Liu is still active and alive in the entertainment industry.
As the couple was once paired in a reality TV show, people did not stop cheering for them and encouraging them to date.
As they are good friends, they support each other in different ways, including when Liu went to Choi’s concerts just to see and cheer for him when he performs.
It is also said that Liu is close with Choi’s sibling, which makes it more complicated for their relationship status. Fans are already assuming that they are dating because why would she be close to Choi’s sister if they weren’t dating?
Once in an interview, when Liu was asked if they are really both dating, Liu dropped hints here and there about a dinner that Choi will buy for everybody. Does this indicate a wedding reception dinner? Who knows.
Liu’s agency still says that Liu is single and waiting for the right guy, but many people believe that there is something going on between Liu and Choi.
