Love life and boyfriend

Yujin hasn’t talked about the boys she might have dated since the launch of her singing career, and this is believed to be because her agency has put a dating ban on her and her friends from CLC – breaking the ban would most likely mean being kicked out of the group. However, when asked about her ideal type of a man, Yu-jin stated it would definitely be Nam Joohyuk, who is a famous model and an actor. It has been reported that while the two were shooting together for the series “Emergency Couple”, Yujin was flirting with him most of the time, and she then asked him out on a date, but being as shy as he is, Joohyuk didn’t answer and nothing has happened between the two.

As of August 2020, Yujin is single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
