Yoon Eun-hye makes a rare appearance on the tvN reality show “The House Detox.” The show, hosted by Shin Ae-ra, Park Na-rae, and Yoon Kyun-sang, helps guests organize their homes. For the seventh episode, Yoon Eun-hye opens her home for a much-needed decluttering.
I’m a fan of Yoon Eun-hye and was glad to see her again on a show. Her last drama was “Love Alert,” which aired in 2018. After her success on the widely popular “Coffee Prince,” Yoon Eun-hye’s projects have been less-than-stellar. I’m still waiting for that comeback project for her.
In “The House Detox,” we learn that Yoon Eun-hye has been sharing her house with her manager of ten years and a friend who’s a vocal coach. The actress used to live alone with her dog but she felt lonely so she kept on asking friends to come over. Now she’s been living with her two housemates for five months. Although she’s happy to be living with friends, her main problem is not having her own personal space because of all of the stuff they have in the house.
For Yoon Eun-hye fans, the show gives an intimate look at the actress’ personal life. We get to see her love for gardening, cooking and art. She also shared how her love for shoes started, which was evident in her pile of shoes. Because she came from a family with financial difficulties, for Yoon Eun-hye, being able to afford shoes became a symbol of her success.
‘Coffee Prince’ memories
While decluttering, the actress showed some mementos she kept from “Coffee Prince,” her script as well as a small bag used by her character Go Eun-chan in the drama. For Yoon Eun-hye, success came too early in her career and she felt that people loved her “Coffee Prince” character more than her. It’s sad how she thinks that her early success has been holding her back. I still think “Coffee Prince” is one of the best romantic-comedy K-dramas ever and mostly because of Yoon Eun-hye’s performance. She deserves another good project to her name.
I didn’t expect to enjoy “The House Detox” but the show is actually relaxing and entertaining. It reminds me of “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo” on Netflix, which champions decluttering as a way to “spark joy.”
