The Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki dating rumors began when they were spotted supposedly holding hands and shopping for groceries together in New York prior to the broadcast of Descendants of the Sun. Interestingly their agencies admitted that they both happened to be in NYC at the same time and had met up for a meal with other people present. And the deflection continued whenever they were questioned about this however neither one of them has ever flat out denied the rumor which I why I believe that they are dating. I'm also not blind to their body language which has been quite telling from the way they behaved at their Hong Kong press conference to this Baeksang awards appearance. With the stigma of costars dating in the Asian entertainment world and the fact that both of them are intensely private, they probably won't admit anything until they're ready to tie the knot. And Joong Ki himself has said that he wouldn't reveal if even if he was dating unless he was caught. They're definitely close friends if nothing more but my feeling is that it's more. Kim Min Suk, the actor who played private Kim Ki Bum in Descendants of the Sun described them as best friends when asked about their relationship in a recent interview.
I understand that shipping is not for everyone and you may not see anything here but please refrain from making comments that she is too old for him (it's just 4 years) or that they're doing this for publicity (they don't need it!) because it's both ignorant and insulting and it also proves you don't know anything about these two. Not to say that I'm an expert but come on, they way they look at each other here is everything! Earlier this week, Song Hye Kyo was announced as the special guest at Song Joong Ki's Chengdu fan meet on June 17 in response to the request of many fans. Considering how he always finds a way to talk about her in his fan meets, she may as well be there. I look forward to seeing what comes out of that. They really are such a beautiful couple and I've compiled some of my favorite moments from the BAA festivities here. There were so many!
