Although competition is stiff in the K-pop arena, it’s no secret that the idols, especially peers, hang out. But a male Korean idol hanging out with a female celebrity? Now, that’s uncommon and will probably make headline news as a dating scandal.
However, if there’s one celebrity who has been safe from these rumours, especially in recent years, it has got to be Super Junior’s Kim Hee Chul. The idol, who is celebrating his 34th birthday today, is known to be close with numerous celebrities, including female idols and actresses. Some of these celebs even call him “unni”, which means older sister – because that’s exactly how they see him. Hee Chul himself admitted on an episode of Happy Together that if he tells a woman to speak informally with him, he doesn’t see himself dating the woman. On the same episode, Hello Venus’ Nara told the emcees that Hee Chul was one of the male celebrities that her CEO said was safe to get close to. It’s no wonder that he is close to various company CEOs and admitted that some of them even asked him to date their artists!
Here are a few female celebrities that Hee Chul is known to be close with (and probably won’t date).
