Actress Son Ye Jin has had rumors swirling around that she was a lesbian for a while now, with people even going as far as putting her in rumors of a love triangle with SNSD‘s Yuri and another female celebrity. Well recently Son Ye Jin has said that she has a “homosexual disposition”, which … um … that’s certainly something?
Responding to a question about why she lacked dating rumors, SYJ said:
“Well, I think it’s because I’m not popular. (laugh) I see a lot of handsome actors as I act, but I can’t do two things at the same time. I focus on acting. Even if I do a character who falls in love, I only play the character, I don’t actually love the actor. The case of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? Well… I don’t think I’m the type.”
Responding to a question of what kind of character she wanted to portray:
“Up until now, my roles were mostly man & woman falling in love. But if I have a chance, I want to do a role of love between women. For example, like Monster and Thelma & Louise. Do I have [homosexual] disposition? Yes, I think I do. I’ll get in trouble for saying this. (laugh)”
Given that she has a strong lesbian fanbase in Korea, she can’t not know what’s going on here. Thus, I’m not exactly sure if this was just fanservice or what, but in Korea it’s unlikely that she would make her sexuality official through a statement, so this may be as much confirmation as anybody is gonna get.
Should be interesting to see if anything happens from here on out. And by happens, I mean stealing Yuri from her man and making out in public.
