Compared to when he dated Park Min Young and Suzy, Lee Min Ho seems to drop way more “hints” when rumored to be dating this Korean actress.
Kim Go Eun is among the most promising Korean actresses as of the moment. Born in 1991, the actress has proven herself through various popular works, including “Goblin”, “The King: Eternal Monarch”, “Yumi’s Cells”, “The Witch”, and many more. While Kim Go Eun is not regarded as traditionally beautiful by Korean standards, she manages to be named as a global ambassador of luxury brand Chanel and is also said to be Lee Min Ho’s “most special woman”, surpassing Park Min Young and Suzy.
Non-traditional beauty with a 18+ cinematic debut, still managed to become Chanel ambassador
In 2012, Kim Go Eun entered the acting industry at the age 21. At the time, she had to overcome 300 competitors to earn the leading role in the adult film “A Muse”. Regarded as controversial, this movie still brought the actress 9 grand titles, including Best Actress at the 49th Grand Bell Awards and Best New Actress at the 33rd Blue Dragon Film Awards – two of the most prestigious award ceremonies in Korea. Not stopping at the big screen alone, Kim Go Eun also made a deep impression with her hit K-dramas, including “Cheese in The Trap” and “Goblin”.
While Kim Go Eun’s visuals are not highly regarded in Korea, she has a unique charm. With her bright monolid eyes and round face, Kim Go Eun successfully contrasts the Korean’s “beauty standard” of double lids and V-line.
According to the actress, she used to feel hurt reading malicious rumors and comments on her appearances. However, instead of opting for plastic surgery, Kim Go Eun proves herself through acting. And soon enough, she has seared herself into the audience’s heart with her charming eye smile and bright aura that can rival the sun.
Thanks to her one-on-a-kind appearance and chic style, Kim Go Eun received numerous invitations from directors, magazines, and luxury brands. The actress is even named a Chanel Global Ambassador, alongside the two famous Kpop stars BLACKPINK’s Jennie and BIGBANG’s G-Dragon.
Surpassing Park Min Young and Suzy to be Lee Min Ho’s most special woman
Before being rumored to date Lee Min Ho after “The King: Eternal Monarch”. Kim Go Eun used to have a short romantic relationship with the 17-year-older actor Shin Ha Kyun. The actress was also rumored to be Gong Yoo’s lover after “Goblin”, but the two’s agencies both refuted such claims.
However, compared to other dating rumors of the actress, her relationship with Lee Min Ho is quite different. They showed sweet chemistry both on and off the setting during filming for “The King.”
In addition, fans also pointed out that Kim Go Eun was the only woman beside Lee Min Ho’s mother that made it to the actor’s Instagram. Even Suzy and Park Min Young never appeared there, and it did not help that Lee Min Ho also had a picture of Kim Go Eun in his bedroom, and set his lockscreen to be the actress.
Even when Lee Min Ho was entangled in a dating rumor with MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo, there were still hints of him and Kim Go Eun all over the place. With this much evidence, netizens firmly believe that the two are a couple, and sincerely await the day they officially announce their relationship.
