[TALK OF THE TOWN]Hoopla over Seo Jang-hoon’s love interest finally settled
One of Korea’s greatest ever basketball players, Seo Jang-hoon, 35, says the rumors are true.
The 207-centimeter-tall (6-foot-9) center confirmed he is dating KBS TV host Oh Jeong-yeon, 26.
It’s the first time the ET Land Black Slamer has been romantically linked during his record-breaking career.
The two met a year ago on the sports show “Jump Ball.” Oh, who majored in sports education at Seoul National University, was the show’s host; Seo, the star turn.
It’s been eight months since the two started seeing each other, but Seo remains cautious about the future.
“It is true that we are a couple but marriage is a different issue,” the sports star said, in an interview with a local entertainment show last weekend.
