Being a celebrity, regardless of where one is active, and regardless of whether one is an entertainer, singer, musician or actor, is no easy task. One of the biggest prices that most celebrities have to pay is the fact that once they are thrust into the national or international spotlight, nothing about them, from their personal lives to their family’s and friend’s lives, are also brought into the spotlight. Many celebrities from around the world have tried their best to keep their private lives hidden and secret, but somehow, one way or another, the media will always manage to get a hold of this, and sometimes, the media itself misconstrues things, which, of course subject the artist or celebrity to different rumors, that more often than not, tend to go viral on the internet, such as this case, in which “Iljimae” actor Lee Jun Ki has been rumored to be dating a co-star of his. Read on to learn more about this story.
Actor Lee Jun-ki, known for his roles in dramas such as “Iljimae” (2008), “Arang and the Magistrate” (2012) and “Gunman in Joseon” (2014), according to K Drama Stars, has once more been plagued with rumors that he is currently dating his “Gunman in Joseon” co-star, Jeon Hye-bin. It was due to the fact that the two were seen wearing the same necklace, or what is popularly known as a “couple necklace,” in public.
This particular rumor, according to K Drama Stars and Soompi, has been going since June of this year, especially as it had been reported on Soompi that the pair had begun working out together at the same gym ever since filming for “Gunman in Joseon” ended.
However, the agency of Lee and Jeon, Namoo Actors, according to Soompi, has since then denied these rumors. The agency stated that the two had gotten really close while working together, and that they were just really good friends.
According to another article on K Drama Stars, this isn’t the first time that the actor has been linked to his co-stars, as he had also been rumored to have been dating “My Girlfriend is a Gumihoo” star Shin Min-ah, when they worked together on the drama “Arang and the Magistrate” in 2012. However, those rumors were proved to be false after it was discovered that he had never even gotten her cell phone number.
According to the report, Lee often refuses to star in romantic dramas and comedies. It was because he feels that he wouldn’t be able to justice to the role that he is supposed to be portraying, such as a romantic lead, as he has no experience in that area, and is often uncomfortable when he does have to film such scenes.
He also stated that most of his cast mates and the members of the crew of the dramas that he works with often don’t believe that he doesn’t have an active love life, but after working with him, they ended up believing him.
He does, however, want to date and get married someday, but not anytime soon, due to his busy work schedule.
