When it rains, it pours? When one K-ent celeb couple gets outed, another one follows right behind? I don’t know what’s in the water in Korea right now but just a scant day after breaking news of Rain and Kim Tae Hee‘s relationship (which has since been confirmed by her agency after I posted about it), now there are rumors that Kim Nam Gil and Jang Nara are dating. Here’s how that one went down – Jang Nara won a drama acting award from KBS for School 2013 and a production member from that show posted a picture of him and Kim Nam Gil (see below) saying that he was visiting the set bringing snacks for everyone to celebrate Jang Nara’s win. The unsaid part was that there must be something going on between them since otherwise why would Kim Nam Gil feel the need to visit the set of School to celebrate for Jang Nara.
K-news outlets are always on the take of the powerful agencies so for Kim Tae Hee and Rain to get photographed together screamed staged to me. I’m merely saying that Rain and Kim Tae Hee had to be ready to go public for them to be so brazenly photographed, because there are tons of rumored couples out there that never get on the news because their agencies keep the news from leaking out. Which means Rain and Kim Tae Hee must be serious to go public. As for Kim Nam Gil and Jang Nara, this rumor is different since there are no pictures of them together nor are did either of them post anything even remotely suspicious. The post about Kim Nam Gil celebrating Jang Nara’s win for School 2013 was courtesy of a drama production member, and that Me2Day post has since been deleted. If this is true then I’m happy for them as well even if this potential coupling feels like it came out of far left field. It almost makes me want to have a computer randomly generate K-ent couples and see if any of those far-fetched pairings ever become reality one day.
