There is a lot of dating announcements… because spring has just passed and we’re hurtling into summer!!
First up, Song Chang Ui (of the upcoming Heartstrings) is dating singer Lisa. The two of them met on the musical “Gwanghwamun Sonata” (which also starred B2st’s Yoseob for those of you who care), and it evolved into an off-stage romance.
- And then, Song’s costar from Life is Beautiful Nam Sang Mi announced she’s dating her onscreen lover Lee Sang Yoon (The Duo). They had become friends when they filmed the series last year, and in the drama, they had married each other. Will life imitate art!?
- I would try to do a “six degrees of separation” sort of thing, but this next couple doesn’t have much to do with Nam Sang Mi, Lee Sang Yoon, Song Chang Ui, or Lisa in the drama world. Jung Suk Won (the lovable buddy of Dr. Champ) and singer Baek Ji Young (who made a cameo in Secret Garden) are dating! They met in 2010 and became a couple in January, but they’re apparently still “getting to know each other.” By the way – Jung is 9 years younger. Rawr.
- Kim Jae Wook will enter the military this summer, thus stepping down from his role in the musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” June 19 will be his last performance. I sob… Kim! Jae! Wook! 안녕!
- Choi Kang Hee (last seen in the film “Petty Love Affair” alongside Lee Seon Kyun) is looking to star in a new drama that will air after City Hunter. The drama is tentatively called Last Female Secretary, and it’s about an unemployed woman who finally gets a job as a secretary in a conglomerate. Choi last appeared in My Sweet Seoul three years ago.
- Kim Ah Joong appeared in a photo spread for High Cut magazine modeling the spring and summer line from Mango in Paris. Whew she’s looking hot.
- Yoon Eun Hye appeared in a CF with Won Bin, where the concept was about natural beauty. It starts with Yoon Eun Hye being all made up, and then completely stripped down to no makeup at all. And dayum if that girl ain’t a natural beauty… She just proves that she doesn’t need as much plastic surgery as Kim Ah Joong to look amazing.
- And here’s a new poster for Heartstrings! [Edit: very likely it is a Fan-Made one, as Julie pointed out in comments below. Thanks Julie!]
