On an online community, a post said that an exchange student saw Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki shopping together in New York. After being posted online, it quickly spread and dating rumors began to gain traction.
On March 21, Song Hye Kyo’s affiliates stated, “This is the first time hearing about her scandal with Song Joong Ki. After confirming with Song Hye Kyo, she was on vacation in New York and Song Joong Ki happen to also be there. So, they had a meal together. Other friends were also there with them, including affiliates. We cannot believe it turned into a scandal.”
The affiliates laughed, saying, “I think others are misunderstanding because of the drama ‘Descendants of the Sun.'”
Song Joong Ki’s agency also denied the dating rumors, saying that they heard about the rumors, but they are not true. Regarding New York, the agency said, “That story has been going around for a long time now, and news agencies have already asked us about it before, and we have told them many times that it’s not true that they are dating.”
