Korean media outlet Dispatch is best known for exclusively breaking dating news in the Korean entertainment industry. In the past, they’ve proved that JiKo aka G-Dragon and Kiko Mizuhara are in a relationship, as well as confirming that “Taengkung Couple” (Girls’ Generation‘s Taeyeon and EXO’s Baekhyun) is (or rather, were) a thing.
And today, the famed media outlet has let slip yet another piece celebrity couple news – Korean model/actor Kim Woo Bin and popular Korean actress Shin Min Ah are dating.
According to an exclusive report from Dispatch, the couple has been dating for about 2 months now. Woo Bin, who is currently 26-year-old, grew closer to the 31-year-old actress during endorsement activities for fashion brand Giordano.
A source, who is said to be a close friend of the couple, said to Dispatch:
(Kim Woo Bin and Shin Min Ah) started to show interest from February, when they were shooting ads together, and officially started to meet after May.
Dispatch further explained that Woo Bin showed his gentlemanly courtship by pushing back his own filming. Min Ah also wrapped up her own schedule quickly so that he could pick her up at her home for dates. Due to their high profiles, their dates were naturally highly secretive and limited.
Kim Woo Bin recently starred in a movie called “Twenty” while Shin Min Ah is set to star alongside So Ji Sub in “Oh My God”, an upcoming drama by KBS. The exclusive dating report came after Dispatch revealed that K-Drama “Pinocchio” co-stars Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk were allegedly dating.
However, both of their representatives have denied the report.
As of time of writing, neither Kim Woo Bin’s nor Shin Min Ah’s reps have commented on the news.
UPDATE (22nd July, 4:57pm):
It’s official. Kim Woo Bin and Shin Min Ah are indeed dating!
In a press statement, Kim Woo Bin′s agency, SidusHQ, stated:
We confirmed the two actors are seeing each other with good feelings. They got close through shooting ads together and began dating after recently developing good feelings for each other. Please look upon them warmly so the two actors may continue their relationship and cheer each other on as colleagues and lovers in the future.
Shin Min Ah′s agency also confirmed the reports.
