Let’s join us to find out who the stars Han Hyo Joo was rumored to be romantically involved with throughout her lengthy career are.
Lee Seung Gi
Back in late 2000s, Han Hyo Joo was suspected of dating Lee Seung Gi, her same-aged co-star in Nonstop and Brilliant Legacy. However, the rumor did not last long nor spread widely as the two are believed to be just close friends. In fact, the duo of 1987-born actors still remain close to this day. In 2020, when Han Hyo Joo guested on tvN’s entertainment program Hometown Flex hosted by Lee Seung Gi, the two talked about their longtime friendship.
Lee Jong Suk
In 2016, following the massive success of romantic fantasy drama W: Two Worlds, the two leads Han Hyo Joo and Lee Jong Suk were tied up in dating rumors. Their heart-fluttering on-screen chemistry and intimate interactions behind the scenes made many viewers believe they were an item in real life. In an interview for Section TV, they even revealed they were each other’s ideal types.
However, netizens were only talking about these rumors for a while after the drama ended. Perhaps it was because the two were so comfortable around one another off the screen that it led to misunderstandings about their relationship. Not to mention, Lee Jong Suk is known for his gifted ability to spark incredibly believable chemistry and tension with his K-drama female co-stars. So it was not surprising that Han Hyo Joo became one of his rumored girlfriends.
Kang Dong Won
Han Hyo Joo’s dating rumor with top star Kang Dong Won, is the one that made the most headlines throughout the actress’s career, given that it is the only rumor that was actually supported with photo evidence.
In 2018, Han Hyo Joo and Kang Dong Won were spotted side by side on the street in America. They were wearing similar black hats and casual outfits. Kang Dong Won was seen carrying a shopping bag as the two walked out of a store together. This was not the first time two Korean celebrities were caught spending time together outside of Korea, so the photo of Han Hyo Joo and Kang Dong Won immediately caused netizens to suspect them of secretly dating overseas.
However, it did not take long for their reps to deny the rumors. Their agencies explained that their schedules in the States happened to overlap so Kang Dong Won and Han Hyo Joo decided to hang out and have meals together with some other friends. It was also confirmed that they were only close colleagues after co-starring in movies like Illang: The Wolf Brigade and Golden Slumber.
Park Hyung Sik
Last year, Han Hyo Joo made a small screen comeback in the zombie series Happiness, where she paired up with younger male co-star Park Hyung Sik. Although Happiness does not focus on the loveline of its leading couple, Han Hyo Joo and Park Hyung Sik still manage to make viewers fall in love with their overflowing chemistry. Therefore, dating rumors were inevitable. Even so, most fans believe the two are more like close senior-junior in real life.
In 2022, Han Hyo Joo’s first project of the year, adventure film The Pirates: The Last Royal Treasure officially hit theaters back in January and also became available to stream on Netflix earlier this week.
