Hong Sua Denies Dating Rumors with Baseball Player

Actress Hong Sua denied dating rumors that started to emerge on Korean tabloids today, saying she’s just good friends with baseball player Ryu Hyun Jin. Appearing at a press conference for MBC drama “I Trusted Men,” Hong said, “I appreciate all the attention but it’s really frustrating too. It’s true that we’re good friends but we’re nothing more than that.” She continued, “I feel sorry for Ryu Hyun Jin for causing this unfound rumor. And even if the rumors were true, I would think Ryu’s the better-looking one.”

Hong and Ryu have constantly been involved in dating rumors in the past, and today one sports tabloid reported that the two were “officially dating” now. But as soon as the report was released, Hanwha Eagles, Ryu’s current team, released a statement saying, “After getting in touch with Ryu, who’s training in Japan right now, we’ve confirmed the rumors to be not true.” With today’s official statement from both parties, Hong and Ryu’s dating rumor once again turned out to be false. But the two definitely look pretty sweet together!
