Rocketing to super stardom, even from the perch of already attaining stardom, affects the star’s personal life like when the lottery jackpot crosses that magical threshold when suddenly even non-lotto players want to play for the hopes of winning. Before the star just had his or her fans and recognition, now the suddenly increase in fans makes it appear the star owes the public in ways not present before. Song Joong Ki is undoubtedly the breakout K-star of 2016 thanks to Descendants of the Sun, and now his personal life is under strict scrutiny and his agency is required to do damage control even if he’s not doing anything wrong or scandalous, especially compared to some of his recent scandal plagued peers. Song Joong Ki was spotted in Los Angeles recently with a group of folks and reportedly a girl who was described as his non-entertainment industry girlfriend. His agency immediately denied the rumor and explained that Song Joong Ki is in LA with friends who tagged along as he was there to do a photo shoot.
An adult man in his thirties maybe having a girlfriend and traveling overseas with her, if that’s not the definition of healthy happy relationship with zero scandal involved I don’t know what else fits the bill. That his fans require to be placated that it’s not a true rumor and he doesn’t have a non-entertainment industry girlfriend is so annoying, it’s not like any of his fangirls have a shot at being his girlfriend so just let the man date, if he wants, and if he’s dating then go ahead and date whomever he wants. I just want him to be happy, and hoping when the fervor dies down he can go back to being just a talented personable actor.
