On July 14, industry representatives reported that the two started dating about three months ago after starring on “Law of the Jungle” together. One source commented, “Kangnam’s distinct sociability and honest personality captured her heart. Rumors started spreading as they met up personally with acquaintances.”
A photo of them eating together at Namhansanseong was posted on social media and added to the rumors.
Shortly after the reports were released, UEE’s agency Yuleum Entertainment responded, “We have checked with her, and it is definitely not true that they are dating. The two of them are just close friends.”
Kangnam’s agency replied that they are checking with him.
Meanwhile, UEE is currently filming for upcoming drama “Manhole,” while Kangnam is appearing on various variety shows.
In an Instagram update shortly after the dating news broke out, Uee personally denied the news, saying that she will let everyone know when she really starts dating. She said, “Currently filming! I was taken aback by a sudden phone call~!! I became close with Kangnam while filming for ‘Law of the Jungle,’ and we’ve grabbed food together and hung out before~ But if everyone automatically assumes that means we’re dating.. it makes me sad ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Everyone!! If I really start dating, I’ll tell you!! But right now I’m just busy!!! #Manhole”
Kangnam’s agency said, “Because it’s a private matter, we have no comment.”
However, Dispatch recently released photos of UEE and Kangnam, and netizens are not sure what to believe. Both sides have yet to make further comment after the latest photos.
