When coming out of this building in episode 3 of Her Private Life (그녀의 사생활) (tvN, 2019), Cha Si-an’s (ONE/Jung Je-won) fans already wait for him to know if the rumors about dating are true. His manager wants to protect Si-an and shows one of the fans quite violently on the ground.

Next thing we know is that Oh-gong chases a wild boar (PK transformed in his real form) down the road in his car.
