A new couple has emerged in the industry with actress Shin Se Kyung (21) and SHINee’s member Jonghyun (21) revealing that they are currently dating.
After finding that they both had interest in one another, they began their relationship about a month ago and has confirmed it through Sports Seoul. The two was revealed to have gotten together as often as they could despite their busy schedules, having street dates mainly around Shin Se Kyung’s apartment.
A scene of the two dating was discovered on October 20th after Shin Se Kyung came home from the conference for her movie, “Acoustic.” Jonghyun was waiting for her by her home as the two went on to walk the streets while listening to music. Jonghyun would even at times cover her from passerbys.
One associate that saw the two commented, “They can’t spend a lot of time together since they’re both busy. They communicate through texting or phone calls and usually just take walks in the early morning around their homes.”
Jonghyun has often named Shin Se Kyung as his ideal woman, while Shin Se Kyung chose SHINee as her favorite idol group on broadcast appearances. They have been officially dating for a month, their first meeting being in May at a concert both participated in. The two advanced on to friends, and now, significant others.
Another associate stated, “Meeting each other became a kind of opportunity to rest for them. They share a lot of the same hobbies and thoughts, which is why they were able to get so close so fast. The two became stars at a young age and have hardships that aren’t able to be expressed in words. Those points became a sort of strength to one another.”
The management agencies of the couple met with Sports Seoul on October 26th and confirmed the relationship.
Shin Se Kyung’s agency, Tree Actors, stated, “It’s been a month since they began meeting one another. They have good feelings for one another and currently getting to know each other.”
Jonghyun’s agency, SM Entertainment, also carefully stated, “We heard that they met each other through other people. Their relationship is just now beginning.”
