Tablo added, "Bong Tae Kyu introduced me to her. When she arrived, I was around other actors. She was a bit rude and cold when she said 'hi.'"
Now, the married pair did mention their very first encounter with each other in that special cell phone store.
"When I was working with my song 'Fly,' I went to a cell phone store to buy a good phone. This lady next to me was putting a screen protector on her screen," the singer explained. Kang immediately left the store after someone teased her about putting the protector on her screen. Her future husband was surprised to learn that she was actress Kang Hye Jung after her departure.
