I was having my daily dose of Korean entertainment news when I saw this comment by YGfangirl in one of the posts:
~ sorry, i just had to let it out….
his management revealed they’ve been dating for 2 months!!
I was like, ummm, really? I had to be a little skeptical since actors and actresses do resort to all sorts of gimmick for publicity. So what I did was to search for blog posts on this juicy piece of Korean entertainment news. A couple of blogs have reported that Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin have been dating since June. It is said that the management companies of both stars confirmed the reports.
Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin both starred in the Korean drama The World That They Live In (Worlds Within), which, everybody knows suffered a lot in the ratings game. I tried to watch the drama despite the negative feedbacks regarding Song Hye Kyo’s acting. I really liked Song Hye Kyo in Full House and since my admiration for Hyun Bin hasn’t waned since the first time I watched My Name is Kim Sam Soon, I made a go for it. Sadly, The World That They Live In is so uninteresting that I had to quit around Episode 4, I think.
I know lots of die-hard BiKyo (Bi and Song Hye Kyo) are probably seething in anger right now but what the heck, stars have the right to choose their own mates. If they are really dating, then fans and non-fans should just be happy for them. If Bi and Song Hye Kyo were meant for each other, then they should have dated by now. Maybe the attraction wasn’t even there to begin with.
And as for myself, I am glad I have since redirected my fangirling to other Korean actors (current fave: Jang Geun Seuk) so I can be wholeheartedly happy with the news that Hyun Bin is dating Song Hye Kyo.
Update: Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo broke up last year. Their breakup was announced when Hyun Bin entered the marines for his mandatory military service.
