Actors Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye have had to come out again to official deny that they are dating as Chinese media reports that the two are in a romantic relationship gained traction recently. Various reports stated that Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye have been dating for about two months, after their drama “The Heirs” ended, but no pictures or other specific evidence were provided to support such claims.
Lee Min Ho’s agency stated to various local and Chinese media sources that the report was untrue. To TV Report specifically, it stated, “We don’t know why this type of report came out in China. We are taking steps [to handle the situation] through our Chinese agent.”
Park Shin Hye’s agency also stated to Metro News, “It’s a baseless story. It seems to be a rumor coming out because of the high popularity of the drama [in China].”
Previously in an January 8 interview with SBS’ “One Night of TV Entertainment,” Park Shin Hye had opened up about the relationship rumors with Lee Min Ho, saying, “I am happy about it since it means we looked good together.” She had also clarified, “I am really lonely because I do not have a boyfriend.”
Lee Min Ho has also spoken up about dating rumors at the 2013 SBS Drama Awards, casually mentioning that he has been asked the most for “The Heirs” if he is dating his co-star. For him, it was also a sign that the two showed good chemistry onscreen.
