News outlet The Fact has just released an exclusive report with photos of actress Kim So Eun and actor Son Ho Joon on an alleged date.
According to the report, the two have gone on frequent dates since the end of last month. They grew closer following the hospitalization of Kim So Eun’s mother, who is being treated at a hospital in Seoul. Whenever Kim So Eun had spare time, she would visit her sick mother and take care of her.
Son Ho Joon reportedly visited the hospital on January 28 to comfort Kim So Eun. After calling Kim So Eun while sitting in his BMW convertible just outside the hospital, the actor stepped out of the car and entered the hospital. Following the visit, they got inside Son Ho Joon’s car and had a conversation. According to The Fact, the two looked extremely close.
An anonymous source, said to be close with both Kim So Eun and Son Ho Joon, revealed to The Fact on February 9, “You can’t really deny that Kim So Eun and Son Ho Joon are one beautiful couple. They met each other not too long ago. However, they feel very attracted to each other, and have become extremely close in a very short time. This marks the beginning of the beautiful love story of another star couple. People around them are supporting them and hoping that their relationship will be a healthy one.”
On February 7, The Fact spotted Kim So Eun and Son Ho Joon on another date, which started near Kim So Eun’s home in Hannam-dong. At around 9:50 p.m., Son Ho Joon picked her up, and they moved to a French restaurant in Cheongdam-dong. Seeing that the restaurant was filled with people, they decided to go to a casual fusion bar instead. The date went on for around three hours, and the couple tried to keep a low profile about it.
When leaving the restaurant, Kim So Eun stayed inside while Son Ho Joon waited for his car and a driver outside. At around 1:20 a.m., they finally departed from the restaurant, with Son Ho Joon sitting in the back seat and Kim So Eun sitting in the passenger side. After arriving at their destination, they politely thanked the driver.
Representatives of both sides have stepped forward to refute the claims made in the report.
In response to the report, Kim So Eun’s agency stated to Chosun News, ” It is definitely not true. The photos of them on an alleged date were taken after an event. Her manager was with them as well.”
Son Ho Joon’s agency explained to OSEN, “They were introduced to each other by an acquaintance. It is true that Son Ho Joon has good feelings for her, but the two are definitely not dating.
