On the January 5 episode of MBC’s ”Section TV Entertainment News,” the topic of the hottest celebrity couple, Lee Seung Gi and YoonA, was covered, with reporters measuring the distance betwee the pair’s houses. Starting from Lee Seung Gi’s house, according to the navigation, it showed that YoonA’s house was around 800 meters from his.
A staff member from the TV program tried to run between the two houses, with the pedometer showing 1,560 steps between Lee Seung Gi and YoonA’s house, as well as a running time of 7 minutes. Their houses by car distance were within 4 minutes of each other.
After the relationship went public on January 1, the fact that the two never dated past 1AM particularly caught the attention of fans, with Korean media outlets calling it a type of “Cinderella” date.
