I tend to believe most K-ent dating rumors from publications mostly because where there’s smoke there is fire. Of course some are not true but most of the time it’s confirmed or the couple are dating but won’t go public. All of that is fine because I don’t care if my faves date and am happier when they are dating/married because that’s such a positive step in their lives. I say all this because a long ago dating rumor was revived today and this time the couple in question actually admitted it, making their denials three years ago seem like yet another “duh” moment. Actor-singer Eric has confirmed that he’s dating model Na Hye Mi after K-media reported that their long running relationship has taken a serious turn and they are discussing marriage. Three years ago in 2014 the media reported that they were dating but both sides vehemently denied it and that was that. I’m sorry if anyone was shipping Eric with any of his drama costars but this handsome man is clearly off the market.
Eric is 38 years old so it’s not surprising that marriage is in the works, and he has a twelve year age gap with the 26 year old Na Hye Mi. The two apparently met through work as senior-junior and the relationship turned romantic. The earlier dating rumors in 2014 came from fans who spotted them on dates but without photographic evidence their denial was left to stand. This time both readied admitted to dating which makes the possible marriage even more likely, or maybe because Dispatch snapped pictures of them on a date which makes it harder to deny. Whatever the reason, congrats to the couple for being in a long lasting relationship!
