At the time, her love life was brought out to the public after Park Min Young’s boyfriend, who was described as a “reclusive, wreathy man,” was linked to fraudulent activities.

She then continued and said that she “lived each day with regret.”

The actress also shared a brief detail about her psychiatrist. As for the actress, she utilized this to realize her true love, which is her passion for acting.

“When I had a brain wave test at the psychiatrist, it showed danger signals due to guilt. Those times actually gave me the realization of what my true profession is, when I am happy, and that I shine the most when I’m just acting on set like before.”

“Marryt, My Husband” is Park Min Young’s first drama since the news about the CEO broke.

In addition, the TVN series is also her first time to headline a revenge K-drama.
