If Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk had become your OTP after Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, here’s the good news – they are reportedly dating IRL!
According to Korean media outlet Insight, the couple has been dating for five months. If our calculations are right, that would mean they started dating in November, when they filmed the drama.
Korean news outlet Dispatch also released photos of them allegedly out on dates, dating back to as early as December 25 last year. The news outlet wrote that after wrapping up filming early on that day, they headed home, but went out again to meet. The article also included other photos where the two celebs were allegedly on dates.
Rumours first started when the 26-year-old actress posted a photo on Instagram when she attended a Coldplay concert. The now-deleted photo showed a man holding on to her ankle, which led to netizens speculating that the man in the photo was Joo Hyuk, judging by the clothes he was wearing, which they claimed the 23-year-old actor wore in the Instagram photo below.
They are both under YG Entertainment, but the agency has yet to confirm on the allegations.
While we wait for confirmation, here are some gifs that will make you ship the couple so hard.
Update: YG Entertainment has confirmed that the two celebs are indeed in a relationship. The agency said in a statement that the pair has been close since their modelling days.
