Lee, Park engulfed in love scandal

Model-turned-actor Lee Jong-suk and actress Park Shin-hye have been engulfed by a love scandal since Wednesday morning.

However, both sides denied their relationship later the same day, saying, “Park and Lee are really close friends, so they sometimes meet personally. They are definitely not dating.”

The scandal was aroused when an online entertainment media outlet reported that the two celebrities have developed into lovers after starring in SBS drama series “Pinocchio,” aired from 2014 to January of this year. It went on to say the actor and the actress have been dating for around four months.

The outlet also said the two have gone on some international dates. The two reportedly went to London in March for a shoot with fashion magazine InStyle. Additionally, when Lee visited Hawaii to participate in a shoot for magazine Allure, Park went there around the same time.

In response to the scandal, myriad articles speculating on their relationship have appeared on the Internet. Various pictures of Park taken alongside Lee that were posted on the actress’ personal SNS over the past few months are being especially scrutinized.
