The recent episode of the tvN reality series "Sweetheart in Your Ear" featured a touching moment between cast members Lee Joon Gi and Park Min Young. The "Scarlet Heart Ryeo" actor even made the "Healer" actress cry when he revealed that he knew about her secret identity all along.

"Sweetheart in Your Ear" is a reality series that paired various South Korean celebrities together where an actor and actress would talk to each on the phone without knowing each other's identity. Lee Joon Gi and Park Min Young participated in the said tvN show where they used the codenames Red Ginseng and Bunny Bunny, respectively.

In "Sweetheart in Your Ear" episode 7, Lee Joon Gi surprised the "Healer" actress when he suddenly called out her name during their phone conversation. Park Min Young, who already discovered her phone pal's identity through recent social media reports, was taken aback when she heard her name. Despite her initial efforts to deny it, the actress could only laugh and jokingly accuse the actor pretending not to know that it was her, Korean news outlet My Daily reported.

Lee Joon Gi then stated how Park Min Young could think that he wouldn't know about her identity given their previous project together. The actor's admission made the "Healer" actress cry since he still remembered her and knew who she was during their "Sweetheart in Your Ear" conversations. The two South Korean celebrities first work together for a photoshoot ten years ago and would sometimes meet during annual awards and other events.

Moreover, the "Scarlet Heart Ryeo" actor even admitted how much he missed Park Min Young. Apart from reminiscing about their previous project, Lee Joon Gi and his "Sweetheart in Your Ear" phone pal also conveyed their appreciation to one another given the time they spent talking with each other on the tvN show.

In other news, Lee Joon Gi revealed the reason why his recent projects were mostly action flicks or historical dramas. In a "Sweetheart in Your Ear" episode, the actor told the tvN show's staff that many of his casting offers were action-related, OSEN reported. Expressing his interest to star in a romantic comedy series, he commented that always wanted to appear in the said genre but he has been typecast to play action roles.

Lee Joon Gi last appeared in the 2016 SBS fantasy series "Scarlet Heart Ryeo." Meanwhile, "Sweetheart in Your Ear" airs every Saturday on tvN.
