Footballer, actress deny wedding rumors

For the third time since 2011, footballer Park Ji-sung and actress Kim Sa-rang have denied rumors that they are an item.

Sidus HQ, Kim’s agency, on Friday warned that it is considering taking legal action against those who spread rumors that the 35-year-old actress will marry the Queens Park Rangers midfielder on Sept. 7 at Lotte Hotel in downtown Seoul. Earlier on Friday, the Web was abuzz that a banquet room in a flashy hotel in downtown Seoul was booked under the name of Park and Kim, a former Miss Korea pageant winner who later found fame in TV dramas such as “Secret Garden.”

“Kim is not even thinking about marriage and she has not met Park since 2011,” the agency said in a press release.

The former national football team captain and the leggy actress met at a cable TV show in 2011, when Kim flew to Manchester to see Park shoot a TV commercial for razor blades. As part of the show, Kim coached Park to dress up and pose for a magazine shoot, which ignited the rumors of their romance.

Since then, the two have been at the center of gossip, once suggesting they were dating, another time that they were engaged, and this time for getting married.
