Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo have long been rumored to be in a relationship. Both have kept insisting that they are just friends, but several clues hint that they are romantically involved.
The two have become one of today?s most popular Hallyu love teams. This is primarily because of the success of their KBS series, Descendants of the Sun.
The wartime drama became so successful that producers are rumored to come up with a sequel, supposedly slated for 2017. However, Joong Ki has confessed that he is tired of the constant public scrutiny and lack of privacy that came along with the hit k-drama?s success. This has prompted rumors that he will not be part of the Descendants of the Sun Season 2.
Soon after the actor?s revelation, reports began to circulate that Hye Kyo will also not return to the show. Reports claim that the lead actress? departure is due to her busy schedule. However, some fans cannot help but wonder if she begged off because Joong Ki won?t be there anymore.
Rumors about Joong Ki and Hye Kyo?s real status were also fueled while the actor was filming Battleship Island. This is because of how Hye Kyo sent a coffee truck to the set of the movie. A photo of the extravagant gift quickly began circulating on the internet. There were also rumors that she visited him on the set.
The rumored couple also hinted at relationship rumors during Joong Ki?s fan meeting in Chengdu several weeks ago. According to Movie News Guide, Hye Kyo was present at the said event.
Attendees got a treat when the Korean beauty got up the stage to join her rumored boyfriend. Looking a bit nervous, Joong Ki gave her a bouquet of flowers and kissed her in front of the fans.
Those who were at the event reportedly noticed how the two kept praising each other. Joong Ki also leaned over and held Hye Kyo?s hand several times.
However, the two have been consistently denying that they are in a romantic relationship. Fans cannot help but still speculate given all the clues surrounding the two.
Some have even compared them to fellow Hallyu stars Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae. The on-again-off-again couple hid their real status at first before finally going public with their relationship. Lee Min Ho has explained that he simply wants to keep things private, and it is possible that Joong Ki and Hye Kyo want the same.
