I think the heyday of Lee Seung Gi being the Nation’s Grandson is over and that’s a good thing because otherwise the K-netizen commentary on his dating life would have been even more vicious. Last year he went public with K-actress Lee Da In, quite a cute visual couple and both have been in K-ent a long time so likely a lot of industry sympatico. But his fans did not like her due to her parents family scandal in the past involving fraud and stock manipulation. That didn’t seem to scuttle the relationship and the two went on dating, though recently the break up rumors came fast and furious. This week Lee Seung Gi issued a very rare for him public statement saying that nothing has changed in his personal dating life, which refutes the break up rumors without explicitly saying it. I’m glad he’s doing his part in protecting his girlfriend and whether they get married or do break up it’s for them to figure out.
