The past of actress Park Ji Hyun, who is starring in “Reborn Rich”, is drawing a lot of attention.
Playing the sister-in-law of Song Joong Ki in “Reborn Rich”, actress Park Ji Hyun is drawing a lot of attention for her sharp visuals and brilliant acting. As a result, information about her past, including dating rumors with Ahn Hyo Seop and Kim Hee Chul comparing her to a “first love”, is resurfacing.
Dating rumors with Ahn Hyo Seop
Back in May 2022, rumor has it that Park Ji Hyun has been dating “Business Proposal” star Ahn Hyo Seop for 5 years. In fact, Ahn Hyo Seop was even accused of being the reason why Park Ji Hyun broke up with her ex-boyfriend.
In particular, a famous YouTuber claimed that Park Ji Hyun and Ahn Hyo Seop met at a fashion photoshoot in September 2017. At the time, Park Ji Hyun was publicly dating news announcer Cho Hang Ri, but they had gone separate ways by February 2018. Later on, Park Ji Hyun and Ahn Hyo Seop allegedly reunited in another photoshoot, and started to date.
In addition, suspicions of a relationship between Ahn Hyo Seop and Park Ji Hyun started to rise due to the famous dish, beef Wellington. As the dish is extremely complicated and take ages to master, the fact that Park Ji Hyun made it herself and posted a gorgeous photo of it aroused a lot of admiration.
Then, in August 2021, Ahn Hyo Seop mentioned beef Wellington in an interview with his “Lovers of the Red Sky” co-star Kim Yoo Jung. The actor described the dish in detail, even calling it “a taste I have never before experienced”. However, when Yoo Jung asked where she could try the dish, Ahn Hyo Seop answered, “You have to try making it yourself.” This made many people suspect that Ahn Hyo Seop tried a homemade version of beef Wellington, and directed their eyes at Park Ji Hyun, a rare person who can make it.
In addition, an anonymous netizen also claimed that they spotted Ahn Hyo Seop and Park Ji Hyun going to a pilates center together, before going to Ahn Hyo Seop’s house. A self-proclaimed neighbor also said that he saw Ahn Hyo Seop side by side with an actress he has never seen before (later confirmed to be Park Ji Hyun), but later deleted their post.
Regarding this dating rumor, Park Ji Hyun’s agency Namoo Actors released a statement saying, “We have nothing to say”, while Ahn Hyo Seop’s side remains silent.
“First love visuals” according to Kim Hee Chul
Back in 2021, Park Ji Hyun appeared on Channel A’s “Friends”, where she showed her daily life routine. Alongside her acting career, the actress is also a postgraduate student, and would dress in a simple and natural style that’s a huge contrast to her actress image.
However, despite wearing little makeup and shedding away her “star glamor”, Park Ji Hyun does not look any less gorgeous. In fact, she boasts an innocent beauty that makes Super Junior member Kim Hee Chul exclaim, “She’s so gorgeous, like a female lead from a youth drama. She’s the staple image of a first love that we have all experienced.”
The rest of the show’s guests also agreed with Hee Chul. At the time, Hee Chul was still dating Momo, so there were concerns that Momo would be jealous when she saw her boyfriend publicly complimenting another girl like that.
