From Gong Yoo, Jo In Sung, to Lee Dong Wook, what do they have in common? They are in their 40s, famous, handsome, and single!
Since the beginning of 2022, many Korean celebrities have announced their engagement and marriage. In particular, the celebrity wedding that took the most spotlight this year belongs to A-list star couple Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin. Now that Hyun Bin has become a married man, which top actors still remain in the over 40 bachelor club of Korea’s entertainment industry?
Having an amazingly attractive and manly appearance with a stunning physique and a top-tier acting career, Gong Yoo is still single, or he is so good at keeping his love affair away from the media. Not only has Gong Yoo never been married, but he has also never publicly dated anyone ever since he debuted. The 1979-born actor is one of the most private and secretive celebrities regarding his personal life.
During his 20 years working in the industry, Gong Yoo acted alongside plenty of gorgeous actresses, many of whom he was embroiled in dating rumors with, such as Im Soo Jung, Yoon Eun Hye, Jung Yoo Mi and Kim Go Eun.
Gong Yoo’s most well-known rumored romantic relationship is with Jung Yoo Mi. The two worked together twice. They were suspected of dating in secret for years and even preparing for their marriage. However, their agencies have denied these rumors.

Jung Woo Sung

Not only that, but the two once traveled to Paris, France, to take part in a picture shoot for the magazine. Although the corporation dismissed their relationship allegations, Kang Dong Won once expressed his admiration for Song Hye Kyo’s stunning beauty.
There were even rumors that Kang Dong Won had repeatedly expressed his desire to date Song Hye Kyo but failed. Only when Song Joong Ki appeared did Kang Dong Won give up his unrequited love for her. But all of this is still just a rumor, with absolutely no real evidence.
In 2018, Kang Dong Won was rumored to be dating Han Hyo Joo when netizens caught the two together in the US. However, the management company quickly denied this rumor.
