Ha Ji-won’s Love Life
Speculations regarding dating among celebrities, especially actors and actresses, often color the world of South Korean entertainment. Some of these speculations involve the beautiful actress Ha Ji-won, who can’t get away from dating rumors. As an actress, of course, Ha Ji-won is used to that, but who has this beautiful actress been rumored to be dating?
Is Ha Ji-won Dating Chen Bo-lin?
More than once, Ha Ji-won has come forward to address dating rumors between herself and Chen Bo-lin, her virtual ex-husband on the Chinese version of We Got Married. Repeatedly, Ha Ji-won has stated that she and Chen Bo-lin are not dating. In an interview pertaining to her film Risking Life for Love, Ha Ji-won alluded to rumors that she was dating her opposite male actor, Chen Bo-lin.
Rumors developed because they uploaded several similar photos on their social media accounts, which is often interpreted as a form of secret communication among celebrity couples. When asked if things became awkward between them after the rumors emerged, Ha Ji-won replied in the negative.
She said, “I’m a relaxed person, and Chen Bo-lin is also a cheerful type, so we just laugh. It is a misunderstanding that occurs because we like the same poses and things like that.”
The actress also said that she got along well with the Taiwanese actor when they were shooting. She said, “We mostly communicate in English, but sometimes we also use Korean. Chen Bo-lin is very enthusiastic about learning languages. He even asked me to teach him. I told him to tell me what he had learned. Because he likes Korean food, he said, ‘I like sesame oil.’ He is also always looking for a good place to eat.”
Four Reasons Why the Rumors About Ha Ji-won and Chen Bo-lin Began
Korean actress Ha Ji-won and Taiwanese actor Chen Bo-lin have denied rumors that they are dating, but how did those rumors even begin? There are several things that made the rumors spread.
1. Both of them uploaded several similar photos on their social media accounts at the same time. The pictures show each of them winking with a cat, a photo of Gustav Klimt’s famous painting “The Kiss,” and some star-filled skies at night. Uploading similar photos on social media is sometimes a code used for celebrities to communicate with each other.
Accidental? That’s what their representatives claim. “Photographs that Ha Ji-won uploaded have nothing to do with Chen Bo-lin,” was the statement from Chen Bo-lin’s agency.
2. Ha Ji-won’s agency said the same thing, although both actors use the same agency in Korea. Chen Bo-lin signed a contract with Ha Ji-won’s management company BM + Entertainment. “They are not dating,” BM + Entertainment said.
3. Ha Ji-won starred in the drama The Time I Loved You along with Lee Jin-wook. The drama is about old friends who can’t find the right match because they are secretly in love with each other. The Time I Loved You is based on the Taiwanese series In Time With You, starring Chen Bo-lin and Ariel Lin. He won the Best Leading Actor Award for his role in the drama.
4. A news media outlet reported that the agency acknowledged that the two didn’t even know each other, but there was still a possibility that they would appear in a Korean-Chinese film together titled Risking Life For Love. They were even photographed together while talking about the film when it was first known to the public, and the picture appeared in the Chinese news portal Baidu. The film is also about old friends who become lovers.
