Actor Ji Chang Wook’s representatives recently responded to the dating rumors surrounding the actor and former Miss Korea and actress Kim Joo Ri.
On April 11, a representative of Ji Chang Wook’s agency told Star News, “Some netizens have raised dating rumors between [Ji Chang Wook and Kim Joo Ri] after pointing out the two of them wearing similar accessories, but it is not true. They are friends so they hang out freely. However, they are not in a dating relationship.”
The agency rep also stated that while it is true that the two are close and watch musicals together with their mutual friends, they “are just friends.”
Speculations of the two stars’ relationship arose recently when a few netizens gathered photos of them wearing a similar necklace and sunglasses, calling them ‘couple items.’
In response to these suspicions, the actor’s reps stated, “The necklace was a gift from a Chinese fan that he wore. It appears that they overlapped because they are trendy items. [The netizens] seem to have pieced things together in this way, but it is irrelevant to the truth.”
Kim Joo Ri’s reps also explained, “We already know that the two are friends, but the dating rumors are absurd. It is not the truth, but mere speculation.”
