In the latest episode of Running Man, actress Song Ji Hyo revealed her thoughts on marriage and what traits she look for in her ideal type of partner.
The episode captured Song Ji Hyo on a mock blind date with her fellow Running Man members Sung Si Kyung and Lee Yong Jin, to which she claimed she’s not too fond of the idea of being set up with men. According to actress Jeon So Min, Song Ji Hyo prefers “meeting people on her own pace.”
I don’t like the awkward air that happens at blind dates. As soon as I sit down, I start wanting to go home.

And while Song Ji Hyo isn’t actively looking to date or marry…
Song Ji Hyo: It’s common for people my age to think about marriage. We have had our shares of relationships. We also have friends who are settling down. So…
Lee Yong Jin: So you’re not looking to date for a long time then? Would you like to tie the knot quickly if you find the right person?
Song Ji Hyo: But I don’t want marriage to become the only purpose of my relationship.
… she revealed that she does have certain expectations. As for her definition of “the right guy,” Song Ji Hyo said she looks for a single trait: The ability to apologize. With that said, Jeon So Min strongly agreed that knowing when and how to apologize is an incredibly crucial factor for a relationship to work.
I hope that my future partner knows and understands how to feel sorry [when needed].
