An unexpected confirmation has happened! In case you were unaware there had been some rumors floating around about the possibility of actress Lee Sung Kyung and actor Nam Joo Hyuk dating. Yup the two leads from Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo. Well they ain’t rumors any longer folks as news outlets are now reporting that a source within the company, YG Entertainment, has now confirmed it.
This type of celebrity gossip isn’t really my forte on this blog but I had to make an exception because I watched the drama not too long ago and their chemistry was what shined the brightest in it. I had even jokingly made a comment to some peeps that I know that I wouldn’t be surprised if they where actually dating. 🙂
In case you are wondering how the rumors began, it all started with an instagram pic of all things. Lee Sung Kyung posted one while at a Coldplay concert. It was a blurry shot of a man’s legs. Netizens quickly put their Sherlock Holmes caps on and based on the clothing and reports of him being at the same event they were able to conclude that it was Nam Joo Hyuk in the pic. That is some crazy detective work right there. No wonder the internet scares me sometimes. O.O” There have even been some sites that are now reporting that the two could have been dating as early as 5 months ago. The two had been close friends since their modeling days and after reconnecting recently they thought it would be cool to start dating.
In honor of this I think now would be the perfect time for people to jump on the Drama bandwagon and check out Weightlifting Kim Bok-joo… or re-watch it if you have already seen it before. Either is cool. ^_^ I think now knowing that the couple is real can enhance the drama even more. In case you don’t know, the drama is pretty much a coming of age drama with some romance thrown into the mix. Lee Sung Kyung plays a weightlifter conflicted between love, her sport, and more. Meanwhile Nam Joo Hyuk plays a guy with a playful personality who harbors a past trauma that gets in the way of him progressing in his sport which is swimming.
I stongly recommend it. So what do you think about all of this, has there ever been a couple in a drama or any show for that matter that you have wished got together in real life and did? Let me know in the comments. As for myself, I thought this news was…. swaaag~ #swagcouple lol
