Rumors of Yoo Yeon Seok and Kim Ji Won dating have been circulating.
The rumors began when the October issue of Woman Sense magazine reported, “Yoo Yeon Seok and Kim Ji Won have overcome an eight-year age difference and are currently dating. They attend gatherings with friends together and are the object of envy because of their public displays of affection.”
The magazine reported the two first met through the movie “Horror Stories” in 2012, with Yoo Yeon Seok as the serial killer and Kim Ji Won as the kidnapped high schooler. They claimed that the two are in a serious relationship and have introduced each other to their parents. According to the magazine, Yoo Yeon Seok’s parents say, “My son’s girlfriend is Kim Ji Won.”
The two celebrities’ managing agency, King Kong Entertainment, however, denied such rumors.
“The two are not dating. Though it is true that they have become close friends after meeting through a movie, the dating rumors are false. It’s nothing more than friendship,” a King Kong Entertainment official said.
