K-Entertainment's Newest Power Couple - Park Shin Hye and Choi Tae Joon
Plot twist of the year? We think not. The news of Park Shin Hye being Choi Tae Joon's partner in love has shaken the K-drama world, but it's not the least suspicious at all (pun intended).
The couple was caught up in dating rumours on multiple occasions last year, though these were deflected by the stars who claimed they were simply close friends. The hearsay started when a media outlet reported that they had vacationed together in April, with additional sightings of them together at an aquarium in the month after.
Many speculated that their romance could have begun when they attended Chungang University together, although Park Shin Hye's agency S.A.L.T. Entertainment maintained at the time that they merely shared a senior-junior relationship.
A new round of dating suspicions started after photos of the duo enjoying a meal at a grill restaurant owned by Park Shin Hye's parents in Seoul's Gangdonggu in August 2017 were revealed, and this February, Choi Tae Joon was also seen outside Park Shin Hye's apartment in Cheongdamdong while waiting to pick her up.
Following this reveal, their agencies finally confirmed their relationship publicly, and sources close to the stars have also revealed that though they were unable to make their relationship public before due to personal circumstances, the pair has grown to become each other's source of strength and support through tough times.
Park Shin Hye was most recently seen in medical romance drama Doctors on ONE, and Choi Tae Joon recently starred in Suspicious Partner on the channel. While fans may be curious about their chemistry despite never working closely on set, let's not forget that they once did a cameo appearance together in The King of Dramas back in 2012! We're overjoyed for this new couple and wish that the love and happiness they feel will continue shining through the years!
