These days I take whatever good news comes out of K-ent like a thirsty desert traveler spotting an oasis. In a shocker that no one saw coming, probably because the participants aren’t huge A-list actors with fans trailing their every move, Lee Ki Woo and Lee Chung Ah have just confirmed they are dating. Awwwww, can we get a “hell yeah”! They co-starred in 2011’s tVN cable drama Flower Boy Ramyun Shop (the first of the Oh Boy! series that has since spawned Shut Up: Flower Boy Band, Flower Boy Next Door, and the upcoming Flower Boy Dating Agency) and actually got quite a good audience buzz from working together. I would be in heaven if any of the cast members in the other dramas started dating as well, because undeniable chemistry was a consistent thread in all those dramas. Lee Chung Ah was actually OTP with Jung Il Woo in FBRS, and since I didn’t finish watching the drama I can’t say whether she had better chemistry with him compared to second male lead Lee Ki Woo. I do know there were plenty of second lead shippers in that drama, so this news is probably like a dream come true for them. In fact, there are so many dramas where the heroine had better chemistry with the second male lead that I don’t even have enough fingers and toes to count so this news keep the hope alive for this particular offscreen shippy possibility. I’m not a particular fan of either actor, Lee Ki Woo has a sweet presence but he’s so tall he always reminds me of Lurch (a very good looking Lurch, of course), while Lee Chung Ah does well outside of characters that require her to act cute or klutzy. Apparently they only started dating early this year after they spent last year together on the same celebrity ski team. I actually think this increases their chances at making it since it’s not a relationship stemming from the heady experience of making a romantic drama together but one built outside the realm of make believe interactions. Congrats to the new couple!
