Actress So Yi Hyun and idol-turned-actor Kim Hyung Jun have denied reports that they are dating.
Local news agency Sports Seoul reported about an hour ago that So Yi Hyun and Kim Hyung Jun have been dating for over an year. An acquaintance of the two actors told the agency, “Kim Hyung Jun and So Yi Hyun are dating. Like any other couple, they had some trouble in the middle, but they overcame it and are currently happily seeing each other. They usually have car dates and show each other affection openly. Their relationship is already public among people in the broadcasting industry.”
So Yi Hyun and Kim Hyung Jun first met through the 2012 drama, “My Shining Girl.” According to an industry who spoke to Sports Seoul, the two became more than just colleagues after the end of the drama. Another source said that “So Yi Hyun and Kim Hyung Jun became close quickly since they have similar interests and hobbies” and that “they once separated in the middle of their relationship but they couldn’t forget each other and starting seeing one another again.”
There have been confusing reports about whether these two are actually dating. According to Sports Seoul, a rep from Kim Hyung Jun’s agency, SPlus Entertainment, said, “It is true that the two dated. But since the agency doesn’t interfere with personal matters, we are not sure about the current situation.” So Yi Hyun’s agency, Keyeast, said, “It is true that the two met through “My Shining Girl,” but we understand that they are not seeing each other now.”
Another news source Edaily is reporting that So Yi Hyun’s agency is denying the two are dating; they are merely just good friends. In regards to SPlus admittance to the relationship to Sports Seoul, the agency clarified to Edaily that it merely meant they heard the two were dating but needed to confirm. The agency is claiming that Sports Seoul twisted its words.
Various other news sources are stating that both So Yi Hyun and Kim Hyung Jun have denied the relationship. SPlus is said to have stated to Money Today, ”We have confirmed with Kim Hyung Jun. They have continued to remain friends after meeting each other through their drama, but they have never dated.” It also stated to MBN Star the same thing.
