The year 2015 is only seven months old but so far it has been an excellent year for k-celebrity couples.
The most famous couple of the year might be Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae. Their agencies confirmed that they were dating in March, after the two were spotted in London and Paris at the same time. The agencies later clarified that they were not sharing a hotel room and although they were both staying at London’s Shangri La hotel that singer-actress Suzy had traveled to Paris with her family.
At that point, the Korean media outlet Dispatch said they had been dating for two months. As of July they are still dating.
And the woman who fans previously wanted to ship with Lee Min Ho had some rumors of her own. Park Shin Hye admitted that she was dating in January of 2015, but it took a few months for rumors to associate that confession with a particular co-star. Park and her “Pinocchio” co-star Lee Jong Suk had noticeable chemistry when they acted together, maybe more chemistry than she had with her “The Heirs” co-star Lee Min Ho. Then they happened to be in a few locations at the same time, including Hawaii and Shanghai. Their agencies insist they are not dating, even though they have been photographed together late at night. They’re just friends or so they say. But they do make a cute couple.
Won Bin tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Lee Na Young in a secret May wedding ceremony. The wedding took place less than two weeks after Eden Nine, the agency that represents them both, denied that they planned to marry. That couple might have continued to date in secret if they had not been outed by Dispatch reporters.
Nam Sang Mi, who appeared in “The Joseon Gunman,” was the first k-drama celebrity to marry in 2015. She married her non-celebrity husband in a January wedding at a small church in Gyeonggi-do. Only family members and close friends attended.
Actress Yoon Jung Hee married in May and also to a non-celebrity, following her small private wedding with a Bali honeymoon. Actor Ahn Jae Wook, who appeared in “Faith: The Great Doctor,” married musical actress Choi Hyun Joo on the last day of May at a private ceremony.
Perhaps the most famous couple to get engaged and married this year are actors Bae Yong Joon of “Winter Sonata” fame and Park Soo Jin, who played Park Shin Hye’s frenemy in “Flower Boys next Door.” The couple announced their engagement in May after dating for three months and planned a fall wedding. Now they are getting married on July 27.
It has been a pretty romantic year so far. Who knows what love confessions, engagements or wedding the rest of the year holds?
