The May December romance will continue to blend the seasons. Having faced a round of breakup rumours, Jung Suk Won has stepped forward to defend his relationship with The Voice Korea judge Baek Ji Young, 37.
Speaking on SBS’ One Night of TV Entertainment show, 27-year-old Jung assured viewers that they are still very much together. “We’re still seeing each other,” he told the show’s host. “We get along well. I think the misunderstanding came about because I hadn’t been talking much about my girlfriend much on TV.”
On April 5, singer Baek had fuelled split rumors by admitting she and her actor boyfriend shared different views over marriage. “My views are different [from his],” she explained on an episode of SBS variety show Thank You. “I can’t continue to wait to get married.”
She added: “When people have asked about my boyfriend on shows, I always said ‘he’s great’. Now, I’m trying to revise my comments… There are times when you’re satisfied with your lover and times when you aren’t. It′s not easy to pretend.”
The couple have been dating for over two years, since meeting in July 2010. Despite their 10 year age gap, the two have steadily grown closer, even meeting each other’s parents last summer. “Age is nothing,” Jung, who recently starred in hit movie Iris 2, has said.
