Just moments after SBS drama “City Hunter” co-stars, Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young, were reported to be in a relationship, Lee Min Ho’s agency StarHaus Entertainment came out publicly denying the relationship as false rumors.
“Park Min Young and Lee Min Ho are just good friends. You can’t call it a romantic relationship. Because of the false reports, Lee Min Ho is extremely frustrated. We’re not sure when and how we possibly could have confirmed their relationship. We never did. Some online media called us on August 22nd and told us they had pictures of Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young together, so we met that reporter. But they were just regular photos of friends together. So we told the reporter the two seem to meet often because they are good friends, but we never said they were dating each other,” StarHaus Entertainment told local media enews24.
“The two have known each other for a long time, so naturally their friendship grew to be very close. They had good mutual feelings, so they met a couple times after ‘City Hunter’ ended. But it’s hard to call it a romantic relationship. They’re just at the stage of getting to know each other better,” it added.
Park Min Young’s agency, King Kong Entertainment, however, has not released any statement denying the report. Earlier today, Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young were reported to have been in a dating relationship for over a month. The two appeared as a couple in SBS drama “City Hunter.” They first met through 2007 KBS drama “I Am Sam.”
Despite conflicting reports, Korean media and fans seem to be accepting their dating rumors as true, as no further reports or statements have come out yet. Soompi will keep you updated as more news get released, so stay tuned!
