DATING RUMOURS BETWEEN KANG DONG WON AND HAN HYO JOO
Dating rumours fuelled up between actor Kang Dong Gun and actress Han Hyojoo after a picture that captured a glimpse of the two walking together in the United States was circulated in the online communities with fans and the public speculating that the two were in the United States to spend time together.
The two of them were spotted in casual outfits after what seemed like a trip of shopping, with a bag in Kang Dong Won’s hands. The picture spread through the different online mediums and sparked up speculation amongst fans and the public that both of them might be dating.
YG Entertainment, Kang Dong Won’s agency denied the rumours and responded to the claims that the two of them are only close friends and they met up since their schedules coincided. The source mentioned that the two actors did not meet up alone. They further mentioned that the two actors were on their way to meet other friends but must have caught attention since they are famous actors. They stated:
“Currently, Kang Dong Won is in the United States in preparations of filming for a movie, and Han Hyo Joo has been mentioned to be in the United States to meet with representatives of a different movie and also for her vacation. The two of them are close colleagues who usually like sharing good restaurants with each other. Their schedules matched up hence they had few meals together along with other friends. The picture in question was taken while they were on their way to eat with others, but it seems like an interest sparked on Kang Dong Won and Han Hyo Joo as they are well known actors.”
Han Hyo Joo’s agency BH Entertainment also spoke up regarding this matter and gave similar responses stating:
“Han Hyo Joo’s stay in the United States in May for a meeting with representative and for her vacation coincided with Kang Dong Won’s schedule in the United States, so they had meals along with other friends several times. We would like to clarify that the two actors are just good senior-junior friends who have worked on productions such as ‘Golden Slumber’ and ‘Inrang’ together”
Kang Dong Gun and Han Hyo Joo have both worked together in Golder Slumber and are casts for the upcoming movie In Rang along with other actors like Jung Woo Sung, Kim Moo Yeol and SHINee’s Minho.
