The hunky comedian Heo Kyung Hwan (age 31) is said to be in a relationship with rhythmic gymnast, Shin Soo Ji (age 21). According to Sports Kyung Hyang, the two have been dating for about six months so far. Inside sources have revealed that Heo and Shin met through mutual acquaintances. Shin was said to be attracted to Heo’s manly and open personality while Heo was said to be attracted to Shin’s feminine charms.
The two have been going on secret dates near each other’s homes and have recently started to reveal their relationship to their close friends. A particular source stated, “Heo Kyung Hwan is telling everyone that he has a girlfriend these days.”
After Shin Soo Ji announced her retirement from rhythmic gymnastics, she was in a dilemma of whether or not she should start making TV appearances. Heo Kyung Hwan started to give her advice on this matter, which was how they got closer.
Shin Soo Ji actually made an appearance on “Gag Concert” on August 19 on the “Sensitivity Castle” corner as well as “Let’s Go Dream Team” season 2. During the “Let’s Go Dream Team” episode, she chose Heo Kyung Hwan as her final partner throughout the episode.
Heo Kyung Hwan is famous for his good looks, his sense of humor and his short height. He is currently one of the G4 members in “Happy Together 3” and is part of two successful corners in “Gag Concert” including “A Beggar’s Dignity” and “Four Men.”
Shin Soo Ji came in 12th place for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. For the 2012 London Olympics, Shin Soo Ji worked as a commentator for the rhythmic gymnastics competition. She also appeared on “Dancing With The Stars” season 2 this past July and showed off her dancing skills.
Currently, Heo Kyung Hwan’s agency is denying this rumor and states, “We heard that they were dating but it is not the truth. Heo Kyung Hwan doesn’t have the time to be having a girlfriend.”
