Moon Geun Young and Kim Bum are dating. It’s official. Yes, I saw everyone pinging me and commenting to tell me about it. Can I let the cat out of the bag now? Why I am not spazzing uncontrollably making inhuman squeeing noises of glee is for one reason only – I got wind of this last week after the wrapping of Goddess of Fire but didn’t post since it wasn’t openly known yet. Apparently GeunBum was not being subtle about their affection, added to that all the gossip coming out of that set during the filming, it sealed the deal for me. Then I heard that Moon Geun Young went to Europe with some friends, and Bummie dropped off the radar, and then I REALLY KNEW. So I spent last week traveling for work and texting random non-drama friends to spazz about this so as to not jump the gun with drama friends, only to get back angry replies like “stop texting me, it’s 2 am here and I don’t care!” So long story short, I’ve already died from happy and resurrected myself enough to talk coherently about this magical dream dating reality between two of my favorite actors. Geun Young is 26, two years older than Bummie who is 24, so he really is a noona killer though it’s not that big of a difference. When the news broke yesterday, her agency Namoo Actors was the first to confirm the relationship as well as the fact that both are traveling in Europe together. That was followed by his agency King Kong Entertainment also making the same confirmation. Looks like they want to go public, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s the first public relationship for both stars since their debut as child/teen stars. I have to say that Bummie was obviously falling for her publicly on the set as evidenced by so many signs I saw during the filming, from holding up the lighting for her, to scrawling her character’s name on the dirt, to just making moon eyes at her during the BTS. They are sooooo cute together, and I genuinely shed tears of happiness when I heard this. May all the shipper hearts keep coming true the drama world over, because today is one of my happiest drama fan days EVER.
