This is as left field a K-ent dating rumor as it gets, but whether fans ever envisioned two stars getting together before doesn’t make a dating possibility any more or less likely. As past dating reveals have shown, the heart wants what the heart wants regardless of fan shipping. The K-netizen boards have been lighting up in the last few days over dating rumors involving Hallyu superstar Kim Soo Hyun and pop starlet Dara (Sandara Park) of girl group 2NE1. If this rumor was fabricated by an overzealous fan, I would think the choice of pairing up Kim Soo Hyun and Dara is to go toe-to-toe with the other Hallyu superstar Lee Min Ho and his confirmed pop starlet girlfriend Suzy.
Reportedly Kim Soo Hyun was recently spotted by eagle-eyed fans arriving at a restaurant with Dara and the two dined alone. Furthermore, fans have noted that Dara has cameo’d in Kim Soo Hyun’s last two dramas, You From Another Star and the currently airing Producer. There has never been any reports that Dara and Kim Soo Hyun are friends in real life, which could explain why they would dine together in a platonic way. This dating gossip is currently unsubstantiated and unconfirmed but is gaining lots of traction in ways that lend some credence to its possible veracity.
I have no problems if Kim Soo Hyun is or isn’t dating Dara, even if the possible pairing still takes a bit of wrapping my mind around. I guess they look good together, LOL, but really the point is Kim Soo Hyun is long of age to date and whomever he wants to explore romance with is fine by me, even if his legions of fans may feel heartbroken to hear one day that he’s really taken.
