In the beginning of this year, dating rumors of Oh Yeon Seo and Lee Jang Woo surfaced, which caused Oh Yeon Seo and Lee Joon of MBLAQ‘s virtual marriage on “We Got Married“ to come to an end.
At first, Oh Yeon Seo’s agency confirmed these rumors, but later on re-stated that the two were just friends. While Oh Yeon Seo’s side was very public on her stance about the dating rumors by saying that she and Lee Jang Woo were just close friends, Lee Jang Woo stayed quiet and declined to comment.
However, with the recent rumors of a supposed break-up, Lee Jang Woo finally spoke up. His reps spoke with OSEN on May 14 and said, “They are and have always been just close friends. Lee Jang Woo is focusing on filming for the drama right now but after seeing articles on the break-up with Oh Yeon Seo, he is very bewildered. The two of them are working very hard as close colleagues. With ‘Oh Ja Ryong Is Coming‘ almost coming to an end, Lee Jang Woo wishes to end things on a good note and keep the close colleague relationship with Oh Yeon Seo.”
The rep also continued, “Lee Jang Woo is very sorry to Oh Yeon Seo in case this sheds a bad light on her as an actress,” and “They are just good friends but it’s very unfortunate that these kinds of articles were published.”
Oh Yeon Seo’s side also spoke up recently about these rumors of their break-up. They said, “They have never officially dated but seeing these articles of their break-up is really bewildering.”
They continued, “When the dating rumors first surfaced in January, they were just friends and nothing has changed right now,” and “Perhaps these kinds of rumors are surfacing because ‘Oh Ja Ryong Is Coming’ is coming to an end.”
This has left netizens very confused and frustrated. They made various comments such as, “So did they date or not?” “Lee Jang Woo, why can’t you be like Oh Ja Ryong and just say it?” “If I was Oh Yeon Seo, I’d be so upset,” “So are Lee Jang Woo and Oh Yeon Seo totally marketing ‘Oh Ja Ryong Is Coming’ right now?” “If they really did date and if they really did break up, filming the last few episodes together must be so hard,” “First they say they’re dating and then they say they’re not. Oh Yeon Seo even denied the dating rumors on ‘We Got Married.’ But, did they really date then?” “Poor Oh Yeon Seo,” “Why are articles of their break-up being published? So random,” “Celebs always deny it but it always ends up being true,” and more.
