Actress Cho Yi Hyun Dating Facts: ZERO Dating Experience
Furthermore, similar to her hoobae, Park Ji Hoo, actress Cho Yi Hyun also revealed facts about her dating life that she has never had a boyfriend up until today. In fact, she once mentioned these facts in her 2021 interview that she could not relate to her “School 2021” character Jin Ji Won because she never had a first love, let alone a dating experience before.
“The one thing that Jin Ji Won and I have in common for sure is that we’re certain about our dreams. But one thing that’s different is that I don’t have a first love yet.
I don’t understand what first love is supposed to be. I’ve never been able to love fully. I’m sure if I meet someone in the future, I’ll know but for now, I don’t know what it is.”Cho Yi Hyun.
Fun and Cheerful Like Sunshine Personality and Unique Habits
Moreover, one of the most wonderful facts you need to know about actress Cho Yi Hyun was that her outstanding portrayal of Choi Nam Ra that had gotten her popularity skyrocketed was apparently a TOTAL opposite of her true personality.
Cho Yi Hyun is Like Ray of Sunshine with Her Bright and Cheerful Personality
Unlike Choi Nam Ra, actress Cho Yi Hyun has a fun and cheerful personality. Everywhere she goes, it’s like sunshine filling every single corner of the room because of her dazzling presence and bright smile.
During an “All of Us Are Dead” interview, actor Yoon Chan Young mentioned that behind her cheerful personality, actress Cho Yi Hyun possesses wisdom and skills that will get her to survive any zombie attack. That is why all the younger actors gave her the nickname “Yi Hyun-hyung”.
However, now that she has acted as a character that is the total opposite of her personality, Choi Nam Ra, Cho Yi Hyun mentioned that at some point, she had incorporated Nam Ra’s character into her real-life personality. That is why today, her MBTI type changed from ISFP (Adventurer) to ISTP (Virtuoso).
“My MBTI was originally ISFP. While filming for the drama, I retook the test and got ISTP. F is emotional, and T is rational. While acting as Nam Ra, I became rational. I think we became more in sync while I was acting.”Cho Yi Hyun.
Actress Cho Yi Hyun Has a Tendency of Being the “Drama Queen”
Along with her amazing personality, her fellow “All of Us Are Dead” cast members also mentioned that actress Cho Yi Hyun tends to be hilariously dramatic in her habits. Hence, the “Drama Queen” nickname.
For example, actors Yoon Chan Young and Park Ji Hoo once mentioned in an interview that Cho Yi Hyun had a habit of raising her arm while yawning. Also, she liked to jump happily every time she got out of the car. Furthermore, they stated that since Cho Yi Hyun started with a musical major, she tends to be dramatic indeed, and it was hilarious.
“Her everyday life was more dramatic than any show. So, even when she yawned, she would do it like this (raising hand while yawning). Also, she usually jumps off when she comes out of the car.”Yoon Chan Young about Cho Yi Hyun.
At the same time, Cho Yi Hyun also mentioned that because her previous MBTI was ISFP, she wanted to get closer to the other cast members by becoming a fun person. But since she had a hard time doing so, she invented those habits.
“It’s because I’m older than the other cast members. So I did those things to get closer to them.”Cho Yi Hyun.
And then she turned shyly away from the camera and fell dramatically from her chair during the interview. A true Drama Queen indeed!
Facts About Actress Cho Yi Hyun and Her Thoughts about Park Solomon
On top of every reason why “All of Us Are Dead” was such a hit lies the outstanding chemistry between Cho Yi Hyun and her co-star Park Solomon.

Cho Yi Hyun and Park Solomon Worked Together for the First Time in “Sweet Revenge” Drama
Long before “All of Us Are Dead”, actress Cho Yi Hyun had actually worked with Park Solomon in one of her debut dramas, “Sweet Revenge”. However, there were not many scenes to work together because Park Solomon was the main lead, while Cho Yi Hyun only played a guest role.
“Lomon starred in my debut web drama ‘Sweet Revenge.’ At that time, Lomon was the main lead of the drama, and I was a lead of one episode, so there weren’t many scenes where we appeared together. ‘All of Us Are Dead’ was the first time we worked together directly.”Cho Yi Hyun.
What Cho Yi Hyun and Park Solomon Think about Each Other?

“From the beginning, Lomon talked to me first. I met him for the first time after the first episode of ‘Hospital Playlist’ aired. Then, he told me that he had a lot of fun watching, and he talked to me first by asking for spoilers. Therefore, we became close quickly. Besides, we’re the same age, and we have the connection of being in ‘Sweet Revenge’ together.
Lomon has very kind personality, and he takes care of his friends a lot. When I was physically tired while filming, he tried to help me by my side. He also took care of me when I was cold, so our teamwork was great.”Cho Yi Hyun about Park Solomon.
