Noh surrounded by girlfriend rumors
After being caught drunk driving, celebrity Noh Hong-chul is involved in another scandal - but this one involves his love life.
Some local news outlets reported yesterday that Noh and model Jang Yoon-ju are an item.
Jang, who is considered one of the country’s top models, was invited as a guest on an episode of “Infinite Challenge” earlier this year, where she and Noh pretended to be married.
On Friday night when Noh was caught driving under the influence by the police, Jang was holding a birthday party. Local media reported that the star had been drinking at the model’s celebration.
Photos of Noh standing with police were captured by paparazzi that were tailing him in order to capture any romantic moments between the celebrity and the model.
Jang’s agency released a statement yesterday denying that the two are in a relationship.
“It is true that Jang was having a birthday party (on that day) but she was having a party with people who are not related to Noh,” said the agency.
Some of Noh’s fans are collecting signatures online to petition for him so that Noh can remain a member of “Infinite Challenge.”
Noh had said he would pull out of all the shows he appears in after he was caught drunken driving in Nonhyeon-dong, southern Seoul.
