The CEO of Soop Entertainment which represents Gong Yoo and Jung Yoo Mi posted on his personal Instagram account a screenshot of the online community post which first spread the rumors. He wrote along with it, “Let’s meet face-to-face soon,” hinting at potential legal action.
Gong Hyo Jin later wrote in the comment section, “It’s driving me crazy. Why isn’t he ever rumored to be [dating] me? I hate that even more!” She jokingly added, “We’re just always known as the Gong siblings?!”
Gong Hyo Jin, who is under the same agency with Gong Yoo and Jung Yoo Mi, starred opposite the 38-year-old South Korean heartthrob on 2005’s series “Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy”. Gong Hyo Jin herself was once rumored dating her “It’s Okay, That’s Love” co-star Jo In Sung.
As reported before, a user on an online community posted, “Gong Yoo is getting married. He made a reservation at Shilla Hotel yesterday, and someone working there leaked the information. The wedding’s with Jung Yoo Mi.” The post even specified a wedding date.
Their agency later released a statement to debunk the rumors, stating, “We are releasing a statement regarding the rumor that’s spreading on social media and various online community sites right now. The rumors about Gong Yoo and Jung Yoo Mi are totally false. From here on out, we will be taking firm legal action against rumors and malicious comments.”
