Update: Lee Min Ho’s And Yeonwoo’s Agencies Deny Dispatch Report That They Are Dating
Updated August 31 KST:
Yeonwoo’s agency has also spoken up about the dating reports.
A day after Dispatch’s report of Lee Min Ho and Yeonwoo dating, Yeonwoo’s agency MLD Entertainment shared, “Upon checking with Yeonwoo herself, they have a close senior-junior relationship.” Regarding the reason for their belated response, the agency explained that it was due to filming delays in Yeonwoo’s upcoming drama. Yeonwoo will be appearing in KBS 2TV’s new rom-com “Dali and Cocky Prince” in September.
After Lee Min Ho’s agency stated that there were other friends with them at the time of the gathering, some people pointed out that they may have been violating Seoul’s social distancing rules, which currently bans gatherings of more than two people after 6 p.m.
Lee Min Ho’s agency clarified, “It was July 1. At the time, the ban was on gatherings of five or more people, and the restriction on gatherings of more than two people began on July 12.”
Lee Min Ho’s agency has responded to reports of the actor dating former MOMOLAND member Yeonwoo.
On August 30, Dispatch reported that the two stars have been dating for five months, bonding over similar hobbies such as gaming and watching movies. Along with several images of the two photographed separately, Dispatch said that Lee Min Ho picked up Yeonwoo to go to the movies.
In response, Lee Min Ho’s agency MYM Entertainment commented, “It is not true that they are in a relationship. They are just acquaintances.”
The agency clarified regarding the photos, “It wasn’t just the two of them, and there were other friends present at the time. They are not photos of a date.”
