The weirdest dating rumors of Kbiz: Son Ye Jin three-some, Gong Yoo and Kang Dong Won related by marriage?

These dating rumors left a lot of people and the artists themselves speechless.

The Korean showbiz is unsurprisingly filled with rumors, especially those regarding the love lives and relationships of artists. Sometimes, however, the rumors are so baseless and nonsensical that netizens can’t help but raise their eyebrows.

Below are the weird dating rumors of Kbiz, which features all the top stars, from Son Ye Jin and Gong Yoo to Yoo Ah In and Uhm Ki Joon.

Gong Yoo

Through massive hit works like “Coffee Prince”, “Goblin”, and “Train to Busan”, many people are charmed by Gong Yoo’s alluring and masculien visuals, as well as his soulful and dedicated acting. However, Gong Yoo is an extremely private person, leading to netizens always having questions about his personal life. 

This curiosity eventually leads to dating rumors between Gong Yoo and his co-star Kang Dong Won, with several pointing out their alleged “unusual closeness” and speculating that they may be “secret lovers”.

In fact, in 2007, Kang Dong Won revealed the truth behind his and Gong Yoo’s closeness, and said they are “related by marriage”. According to the actor, their grandfathers are friends who decided their children should get married to each other, bringing the two families together. So, Kang Dong Won and Gong Yoo are actually distant relatives!

Son Ye Jin 

Before marrying her husband Hyun Bin, Son Ye Jin had her fair share of dating rumors. For example, after starring in “Shark” in 2013, she was said to have dated co-star Kim Nam Gil, while her role in “Something in the Rain”  had people speculating about the actress and Jung Hae In.

However, the most one of a kind dating rumors regarding Son Ye Jin was when netizens on a Korean forum spreaded rumors that she was in a three-way relationship with SNSD Yuri and actress Han Ye Seul. Even now, this is one of the most iconic “dating rumors” of Kbiz. 

Yoo Ah In 

Famous for his artistry and acting talents from a young age, Yoo Ah In also finds himself embroiled in dating rumors, with some saying he dated his best friend Song Hye Kyo. In 2016, these rumors died down when the actor appeared at an alleged gay bar, raising questions about his sexuality. Then, in 2021, photos of him and another male personality were said to be “too close to be platonic”. 

This resulted in Yoo Ah In being rumored to be dating famous male photographer Choi Ha Neul, who has opened various exhibitions in the US, Korea, and Hong Kong. 

As of the moment, both sides have remained silent on their alleged relationship. 

Uhm Ki Joon 

Having starred as the iconic Joo Dan Tae of SBS’ mega hit trilogy “The Penthouse”, Uhm Ji Joon received a lot of attention from the public. Prior to his limelight on both the small and big screen however, Uhm Ki Joon was a theatrical actor, and used to star in the same play with the Super Junior member Kyuhyun

Following this, rumors of Uhm Ki Joon and Kyuhyun being lovers also started to rise, and in 2015, Uhm Ki Joon even referred to this rumor himself. In particular, the actor said on MBC talk show “Radio Star” that he finds his alleged relationship absolutely ridiculous. 

Meanwhile, Kyuhyun, who was also at the show, said: “Uhm Ki Joon sent me a message about the rumor, so I jokingly called him “Honey”. He then kicked me out without hesitation.”
