Don’t believe the hype.
Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung has denied she is dating handsome actor Won Bin, her agency confirm today.
In a statement sent to all media outlets, including IdolWow!, a spokesman at SM Entertainment said of the 22-year-old singer: “Sooyoung has never met Won Bin. These rumours are just ridiculous. We have no idea why someone would make up such a ridiculous story.”
Hours later, her 35-year-old rumoured other half stepped forward, to reiterate the message: A rep at Eden 9 Entertainment says: “Won Bin has never even met Girls’ Generation and doesn’t know which member is which. These rumours are completely false.”
Rumours of the couple dating first start online, when gossip was spread across a number of Korean messageboards. As the news started to make its way overseas, it wasn’t long before it became a trending topic.
Although both are currently single, multiple sources confirm that neither have ever crossed paths.
Earlier this year, Won Bin admitted that he has not recently been intimate with a woman. The Man From Nowhere made the startling confession to co-star Kim Hee Won, who asked him about his dating life.
“We talked about acting until the early morning,” Kim said. “He is very passionate about acting. But he kept talking about acting, so I asked him if he had a girlfriend. He said he really didn’t have one. I asked him if he recently got intimate with a girl, and he said no again.”
