On July 1st, it was reported that top stars Lee Jong Suk and Park Shin Hye are currently in a relationship.
Complementary to the report, Korean media outlet Dispatch released numerous photos of the couple. Shortly after the report surfaced, however, Park Shin Hye’s agency responded to the allegations with an official statement.
When Dispatch initially reported on the news of Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk dating, netizens seemed both surprised and pleased by this news. Some even expressed their sadness for 2PM‘s Taecyeon who recently revealed his thoughts about Park Shin Hye on the show “Three Meals a Day.”
