Without official confirmation from either Suzy or Sung Joon‘s entertainment agency, a “Gu Family Book” staff member’s Twitter post seems to playfully prod the couple about just coming forward about their relationship while addressing them by their characters’ names from the drama, “Gu Family Book.”
On October 11, the day news broke out that the beloved starlet was dating fellow her fellow co-star from “Gu Family Book” – a staff member uploaded the following photo from the drama set with a message that said, “Yeo Wool = Gon. Is this the birth of a “Gu Family Book” couple? There probably aren’t many people who noticed as quickly as I did, heh. But if they’re not, then they’re not [dating]. Please don’t ask me any questions. I really don’t know anything^^”
In addition to the staff member’s post, netizens have also shared on forums the fruits of their investigation for the public to examine. Photos dating back to when Suzy and Sung Joon were filming “Gu Family Book” together were marked to show signs of evidence that their relationship goes beyond that of platonic friendship.
Meanwhile, the only official statement given by JYP Entertainment is that, “Suzy and Sung Joon have always been close. They also meet up with fellow co-stars Lee Yoo Bi and Lee Seung Ki from ‘Gu Family Book’ too. They just happen to be enjoying dinner as mere friends. They regard each other as nothing more than close acquaintances.”
Edited for accuracy.
Here are Suzy and Sung Joon dressed up in costume as their characters Lady Yeo Wool and Gon, aren’t they adorable?
