On March 23, the actress responded to the rumors in an interview with Sports DongA. She remarked, “Kwang Soo and [Yang] Se Chan are my closest friends. I depend on them so much. They give me strength. Even when I was working on my drama, I relied on them.”
However, Jun So Min firmly denied any possibility of a romantic relationship with Lee Kwang Soo. “We are definitely not dating,” she said. “Doesn’t he treat me too roughly on [‘Running Man’] for people to think that we’re dating? Even off-camera, he jokes around with me a lot. If someone you’re dating acts like that, you should break up with them immediately.”
Jun So Min also addressed the rumors that the two share matching couple bracelets in a separate interview with Xportsnews that same day.
“It was a misunderstanding caused by the fact that Lee Kwang Soo and I share the same stylist,” she explained. “Not long ago, Lee Kwang Soo sent me photos on a mobile messaging app of our supposed couple bracelets, along with the message ‘hahahahaha.’ It seems like people are more suspicious because [our bracelets] are different colors.”
She added with a laugh, “I think I’m going to have to ask our stylist to prepare different [accessories] for us in the future.”
The actress went on to declare that she would never again go public with a romantic relationship. “I’ll never do it again,” she said. “I learned from experience. I’m going to hide it until the very end. The next time [I go public with a relationship], I’ll be getting married, not dating.”
