Last year on New Year’s day of 2013, K-ent was rocked with the stunning and out-of-nowhere news that Hallyu superstar and abtastic Rain was dating brainy A-list actress Kim Tae Hee. It really was a WTF moment to hear the news, not that I wasn’t happy for them but the general “where the heck did this come from” confusion. I didn’t want to make the same mistake again and went to sleep last night ready for whatever craziness to come this New Year’s day of 2014 and K-ent did not disappoint in the least. Tabloid newspaper Dispatch broke the news in the dawn hours that Nation’s Favorite Son Lee Seung Gi is dating SNSD‘s leggy Yoona. Excuse me for a minute to compose myself, even fortified to withstand any dating bombshell news this one is such a nuclear explosion I still feel the ricochet. Dispatch first caught them together in October after Seung Gi came back from a concert in Japan – he picked her up and they had a date the Han River for an hour or so before he dropped her off again and she left carrying a bag containing a present he brought back for her. Since then Dispatch has reportedly snapped them on dates a few times in November as well. I’ve said before that celebs are dating left and right and even the so-called breaking news leaks are coordinated with the tabloids, and in this case it was clear both of them got the all-clear for this to go public because within hours both agencies confirmed the news. They have been dating since September and it’s a very new relationship so the agencies have asked the fans to look upon them warmly as they start the tentative steps of a beginning romance. I think the arrival of Prime Minister and I was meant to change me on so many levels, with a rom-com I love, an onscreen couple I’m rabid for, and making me go from meh-to-adore with respect to Yoona because otherwise I’d be flipping tables right now hearing that my Seung Gi is dating her if I didn’t like her as an actress. Seung Gi has said in interviews in the past that Yoona is his ideal type but then so have a lot of other male stars. Looks like my boy’s got his wish and he’s actually dating the girl of his dreams. Congrats to them both and what a way to start of 2014. Be happy kids!
I won’t bother decoding the paparazzi photos since they confirmed the dating but let me say what a scandal that Korea’s King is dating the Prime Minister’s wife. XD
