Just about two days after Girls’ Generation’s YoonA confirmed that she has been dating TV personality Lee Seung-gi for the past few months, her fellow member Sooyoung revealed her own relationship with actor Jung Kyung-ho.
Sooyoung’s agency SM Entertainment confirmed to a local media outlet on Friday that the girl group member and Jung ― who had been close friends since 2012 ― have dated since last year.
Rumors of the two dating have previously floated in the local media, one time in February and the other in October, but they denied the rumors both times.
Sooyoung, 23, made her debut in 2007 as a member of Girls’ Generation, also known as SNSD, which has become one of today’s most popular K-pop groups at home and abroad.
Jung, 30, rose to prominence after starring in 2004 KBS drama series “I’m Sorry, I Love You,” in which he played an emotionally vulnerable actor. He recently starred in comedy film “Fasten your Seatbelt,” which is prominent actor Ha Jung-woo’s directorial debut. Jung is the son of Jung Eul-young, one of the most influential TV drama directors in the country.
