So K-ent has been awash in just the first twelve days of 2013 alone with a veritable avalanche of hook ups and break ups, as if some tricksy elf spiked the water supply in Yeouido and Chungmuro with love potion. The biggest “OMG I Can’t Believe They’re Dating” moment (not to be confused with “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”) came courtesy of Kim Tae Hee and Rain being snapped on a cold dark night clearly not trying hard enough to be incognito. Perhaps worried that their status as the Top Dog of Hallyu couples might be usurped by these newcomers, Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung were similarly snapped by the gossip rag Dispatch out strolling the streets on a date. Of course they weren’t outed since they admitted to dating during the Summer last year, but this would mark the first photographic evidence of the couple out and about. Why K-ent couples don’t emulate TW-ent couples and do couple endorsements and red carpet walks together beats me. These grainy pictures are hardly juicy enough to ship. Lee Min Jung certainly looks happy to hang on to her man’s arm, though he could be a tad more into her if body language is to be believed. This seemingly random real life coupling just reminds me that real life shipping onscreen couples should be fun but not taken seriously. There are tons of fans who shipped Lee Min Jung with her co-stars such as Jung Kyung Ho from Smile, You or Gong Yoo in Big, but clearly the girl has a type and its not either of those guys. Considering Lee Byung Hun’s age, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them walk down the aisle or else break up this year. They are both old enough to know what they want and either its right or its not. Good luck to them and please give me some official couple appearances just for pretty’s sake.
