SS501’s Kim Hyung Jun Dating Former My Shining Girl Co-star So Yi Hyun

I was wondering if the K-entertainment dating spree had ended what with a good two months without any major dating announcements. I personally don’t care about all that dating other then it felt like this amazingly roll where one couple begat another so I didn’t want it to end. There has been a lot of cross-over couples as well recently in an actor dating an idol such as Lee Seung GiYoona and Jung Kyung HoSooyoung (and maybe So Ji Sub and After School‘s Jooyeon though that has been denied). Today’s dating news switches the genders up as SS501 member Kim Hyung Jun has admitted to dating actress So Yi Hyun. SS501 hasn’t been active in years and all of its members have been pursuing other careers and Kim Hyung Jun has been acting steadily even if he’s not quite a headliner yet. Once the news broke, their agencies candidly confirmed that he and So Yi Hyun have actually been dating for two years since they co-starred in the weekend drama My Shining Girl (Sunshine Girl or Glowing She). To say this is a couple that came out of nowhere is an understatement, and those who have watched My Shining Girl will need to share some insights as to whether it was pretty obvious they had massive chemistry onscreen and/or totally sold the falling in love part. This is a noona-dongsaeng romance as So Yi Hyun is three years older than Kim Hyung Jun, but it’s not something that is very obvious or a bid deal. They both seem like pretty down-to-earth entertainers and this news of their two year long underground romance continues to add to my belief that there is way more industry dating than is admitted. I’m also rather charmed by this couple because I find they very similar features, which in Chinese parlance is referred to as husband-wife face. Let’s hope this means they might end up going all the way. Thanks for continuing the roll, So Yi Hyun-Kim Hyung Jun! Best of luck to the pretty pair. Continue reading
