After being caught on a date with the CEO (Baek Chang Joo) of her management agency, the Korean media was flooded with rumors about Song Ji Hyo dating the CEO. On January 31, 2012 C-Jes Entertainment stated, “Song Ji Hyo and Baek Chang Joo are dating, but they are still in the early stages of their relationship. Because this is a personal matter, we have no way of knowing when and how they started dating.”
Recently on February 6, “Running Man” had its first filming after the news of Song Ji Hyo dating broke out.
The PD of the show stated, “Although it was the first filming after Song Ji Hyo’s dating news, the members had a fun and non-awkward recording. It did seem like Song Ji Hyo was sorry however.”
The PD continued, “When Song Ji Hyo said she was sorry to the other members, they replied ‘You don’t have to. Let’s do our best.’ Also, the ‘Monday couple’ with Gary did not seem awkward at all.”
