Is Jonghyun from CNBLUE’s Girlfriend, Gong Seung-yeon?
Besides Yonghwa, the guitarist of CNBLUE, Jonghyu,n also made his appearance on MBC’s We Got Married. Although already familiar with the program since he also appeared occasionally when Yonghwa was on the show, this time Jonghyun became part of the fixed cast, and was paired with actress and older sister of TWICE’s Jungyeon, Gong Seung-yeon, earning the nicknames ‘honeybee’ couple and GongLee couple.
Jonghyun and Gong Seung-yeon’s first meeting occurred on 14 March 2015 at Sung Shin Women’s University. As soon as they met on the campus, both Jonghyun and Gong Seung-yeon were interested in each other.

Unfortunately, Jonghyun and Gong Seung-yeon’s on-screen relationship abruptly concluded their virtual marriage in the 24th episode on 29 August 2015. There is a rumor circulated that the couple had to conclude their appearance on the show because they were dating for real. However, the gossip was immediately shut down by the producer of We Got Married, who said that the reason Jonghyun and Gong Seung-yeon left the show was their busy schedules, just like the other former WGM couples.
Luckily, Jonghyun and Gong Seung-yeon reunited to work together on the Netflix drama My Only Love Song as a couple. Many people are glad for Jonghyun and Gong Seung-yeon’s reunion because they feel that the couple has great chemistry, so it is guaranteed that the drama will not lack that one importance factor that is the bond between the lead cast.
