Well that was quick. It took about under an hour for the respective agencies of actors Park Seo Joon and Baek Jin Hee to immediately issue denials over the published report that they had been dating for the past year. This news article didn’t come from the sleazy hands of Dispatch or Sports Seoul, since neither are idols worth camping out to catch on secret dates, but instead a woman’s monthly magazine called Women’s Sense published an story in its August edition that the former I Summon You, Gold! costars were a real couple for the past year after being paired up as a reel couple. If this is true then I’m not surprised, and anyone who suffered and slogged through ISYG shouldn’t be surprised either. Those two had massive overflowing amounts of chemistry that I’ve not seen before or since from either Park Seo Joon or Baek Jin Hee with any other costar.
It’s unlikely that a published magazine would risk libel to out a couple that is famous but not all that famous (yet) without having their sources checked so Women’s Sense went to the press likely having done its due diligence. Both Park Seo Joon and Baek Jin Hee’s denials are nearly identical – they are very close and good friends but not dating. Period. I’ll take that with a grain of salt but am happy to let them issue that denial and have it wave in the wind. As up-and-comers both are very talented and unique in looks and acting style so that they don’t blend into the wood works. It’s probably not a good time to have a public relationship so whether they are merely good friends or super good friends with benefits, I’m just happy to report the latest on dits in the K-ent dating circle and have folks draw your own conclusions.
