Kim Ji Won And Yoo Yeon Seok: Are They Exclusively Dating Or Just Close Friends?

Several speculations are brewing between Kim Ji Won and Yoo Yeon Seok especially when it comes to the real score of their relationship. Is it just pure friendship or have they already went to the dating stage? Read on for more details.

According to Soompi, the ‘smoke’ of the ‘fire’ about this rumor started in the publication of Women Sense magazine last October. It was revealed in that October edition they were able to work out the age gap, which is 8 years, between them. Kim is 22-years-old while Yoo is 31-years-old. They are dating as the magazine claimed. To support this statement, they have mentioned too that the Korean stars went to social gatherings respectively with their friends.


The attention is centered on them due to their affectionate gestures. Hence, others are envious of their alleged relationship. The magazine even added things are going serious about them to the extent they have met each’ other’s parents. Yoo’s parents even dropped that their son’s girlfriend is Kim.

How did they meet in the first place?

Kdramastars recounted they starred in “Horror Stories” last 2012. Yoo portrayed the role of a serial killer that has a speech defect. On the other hand, Kim is his kidnapped victim, a high school student. As she plans how to escape from her captor, she resorted to narrate him frightening and chilling stories. It helped her in delaying her death on from the hands of her kidnapper.

At a very young age, Kim bagged the New Star Award of the SBS Drama Awards last 2013 for her impressive portrayal of Rachel Yoo in the drama program “The Heirs.”

Yoo’s recent appearances are on the movies “Whistle Blower” and “The Royal Tailor”, and comedy show “Warm and Cozy.”

Amidst all these rumors which some fans hope to be true, however, their agency is quick to dismiss all these issues. The same article mentioned too what King Kong Entertainment has to say about their exclusively dating relationship.

An unidentified representative said in an interview to Naver TV, a Korean news program they aren’t dating at all and explained:”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.”

Sorry to burst the bubble of their fans who wish for a real romance. Nevertheless, Kim Ji Won and Yoo Yeon Seuk appear to remain as great friends. We hope they will continue to have the momentum of success in their career.
