Dating News with Eddy Kim
In 2017, So-jin was reported to be dating the popular solo artist, singer Eddy Kim. The couple met when they were filming for the Channel CGV program I Am A Movie Director Too: Youth Movie. Since then, they’ve gotten closer and often hang out together in Eddy’s car or spend time together around So-jin’s house. News also revealed that they shared the same music interest, and that made them even more open to each other.
When the rumor first began spreading, Dream T Entertainment and Mystic Entertainment immediately denied that the two were dating. Dream T Entertainment was the first one to issue a denial, and said that So-jin and Eddy were only close friends. This statement was followed and backed up by Mystic Entertainment, Eddy’s agency.
A few hours after the agencies denied the rumor, So-jin and Eddy came out to confirm their relationship. They admitted that they were dating and the reason why they denied it was that they wanted to be careful and respect each other’s privacy. After some discussion, So-jin and Eddy finally came to an agreement to admit their special relationship to the public. Their sudden confirmation of the relationship stirred many different responses from netizens. Many people said that the reason for their sudden confirmation was because there must be pictures of them in a hotel. However, this is not true.
After being involved in a special relationship for eight months, So-jin and Eddy announced that they’d broken up and parted ways. Dream T Entertainment said that the reason for the breakup was their busy schedules, which left them unable to find time to spend together. Dream T Entertainment also said that further reasons couldn’t be published, due to the couple’s privacy, and they still had a good relationship and support each other as colleagues.
So-jin and Eddy are both still active. So-jin is currently busy with her personal schedule and recently, in 2018, she got the chance to play in an episode of the drama special Chuseok Day, along with 5urprise’s Gong-myung. The title of the episode was “Essence of Happiness”, and the drama tells the story of Jin-soo’s (Gong-myung) adventure to find 12 happinesses and 1 woman. In his adventure, he meets Jung-soo (Soo-jin) and they go on an adventure together.
