Korean Actress Gong Hyo-jin’s Love Life and Relationship Status
Gong Hyo-jin is a South Korean actress, model, and fashion enthusiast. She is best known as the queen of romantic comedies due to her successful portrayals of characters in her rom-com dramas. Almost all of her work has become successful. Even though she’s always playing the protagonist in all her rom-com dramas, her actual love life is not as fortunate. Her relationships have all resulted in breakups; she still hasn’t gotten her own happily ever after.
Gong Hyo-jin has often been spotted hanging out with other celebrities, but her love relationship is not in the spotlight. In a sense, her love relationships, which have been revealed to the public, are only a few. She has been involved in many rumors about relationships with many of her co-workers, but it would always end up only being a rumor.
Curious about what’s going on about Gong Hyo-jin’s love life? Let’s find out!
After several break-ups with past lovers, Gong Hyo-jin is currently single and has been for a while. There haven’t been any rumors going on about her current lover or romantic relationship, either. Maybe she still needs a break after her past relationships.
It’s not uncommon for actors and actresses to develop feelings towards their co-stars in a production. Let’s not forget about Ahn Jae-hyun and Goo Hye-sun from the drama Blood, Nam Joo-hyuk, and Lee Sung-kyung from the drama Weighlifting Fairy Kim Book Jo, or even the famous couple Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo, from the popular series Descendants of the Sun.
Gong Hyo-jin has played roles that involved being paired with many famous actors, such as Jo In-sung, Kim Soo-hyun, Rain, Cha Tae-hyun, Cha Seung-woon, and Jo Jong-suk. She even received several Best Couple Awards. In an interview, she admitted that she sometimes develops romantic feelings when performing with her drama co-stars. She did have a long-term relationship with one of her co-stars, Ryu Seung-bum, in the 2001 television series Beautiful Days.
Gong Hyo-jin’s Ex-Boyfriends and Dating Rumors
Gong Hyo-jin has only had one long-term relationship, according to the press. Her partner at that time was Ryoo Seung-bum. They were together for a long time, which is rarely found among celebrities. Fans expected them to get married. They seemed to be in an excellent relationship back then. After two years of absence from dating issues, she came back strong with the rumors of dating actor Lee Jin-wook, who is less than one year younger. She was spotted going out with Lee Jin-wook, who dated actress Choi Ji Woo in 2009. Gong Hyo-jin has been involved in many rumors of dating many guys, but most of them have not been confirmed.
Gong Hyo-jin With Ryoo Seung-bum
Gong Hyo-jin dated South Korean actor Ryoo Seung-bum on-and-off for several years. They met, as adults, on the set of the TV drama Beautiful Days in 2001. Before that, the two had, in fact, shared one class in elementary school before Gong Hyo-jin transferred. The couple publicly admitted their relationship soon after they become official. They starred together again in the 2002 comedy Conduct Zero. They dated until some time in 2003.
The pair publicly confirmed their renewed relationship in 2008 before breaking up again in 2012. This time it might be for good. The public loved the couple, and, unfortunately, they ended their relationship. Many people still hope that Gong Hyo-jin and Ryoo Seung-bum might get back together.
When she was asked about why it ended, Gong Hyo-jin answered, “If a couple has dated for ten years, that couple can guess why we broke up. If I were to say a little more detailed reason, we just felt that we wanted a break. It was not that we fought, and it was not that one person said we should break up first. We came here naturally. For a while, progressing in the direction of being friends, we had talks with each other and slowly sorted out our relationship.”
She then stated that they separated on good terms and have remained friends.
Gong Hyo-jin With Lee Jin-wook
She also dated Lee Jin-wook, a South Korean actor best known for his leading role in the romance series Glass Castle.
They dated in 2014, but it didn’t last long. They were close friends before developing special feelings towards each other, and according to Lee Jin-wook’s agency, Will Entertainment, they decided that they would make better friends than lovers.
They were first seen together during the Seoul Fashion Week in March 2013. The couple was also photographed attending a Korean Film Night in New York City in 2014. They publicly announced their relationship when they were photographed on a date together in May 2014. Although they never confirmed how long they’ve been dating, the public’s speculation said that it must be over a year.
After her relationship with Lee Jin-wook, Gong Hyo-jin has never been spotted dating anyone. It may be that she is keeping her relationships away from the public’s eyes. All we know is that she isn’t afraid of relationships since, according to some interviews, Gong Hyo-jin still has a positive view about marriage.
Gong Hyo-jin With Jo In Sung
Gong Hyo-jin met Jo In-sung through the drama It’s Okay It’s Love, which aired in 2014. The perfect coincidence between them made fans speculate about their relationship. The fans thought they might have been involved in some love relationship after or during the drama. The drama aired in 2014. Gong Hyo-jin broke up with her previous boyfriend, Lee Jin-wook, around September 2014, and Jo In-sung broke up with her ex-girlfriend Kim Min-hee, almost in the same month.
Their news appeared close to each other. Dispatch, known as a famous media in Korea, released their photo together in a café near Itaewon. But the rumors were denied by their respective agencies as false. They indeed were in a close relationship but not as lovers. They maintained their friendship even after they finished the shoot for the drama. They broke up with their respective partners for their own sake and not related to each other.
Gong Hyo-jin With Gong Yoo
Gong Yoo is actually one of Gong Hyo-jin’s male friends. They’re very close to each other. They don’t mind being involved in a scandal because Gong Hyo-jin once said she wants to be in a dating scandal with Gong Yoo right after Gong Yoo’s marriage rumor appeared to the public. Gong Hyo-jin even got invited by Gong Yoo to his fan meeting in Hong Kong. There, Gong Hyo-jin openly revealed his close relationship with him. Of course, fans went crazy seeing this kind of interaction between them as we know both of them are still single. But, unfortunately, there are no dating rumors involving them that appear to be true. They seem only to be friends. Because they are so close, Gong Hyo-jin feels comfortable making jokes about lovers. But, we’ll see what happens next.
Who is Gong Hyo-jin’s Current Boyfriend?
As mentioned a lot before, Gong Hyo-jin has many male friends and seems to like to hang out with celebrities and non-celebrities. She’s a cheerful woman who loves to meet up with her friends. That’s why sometimes reporters or media can hardly find her in some relationship. She has a good relationship with famous actors like Gong Yoo and Jo In-sung. It easily makes fans go crazy.
Gong Hyo-jin can also easily joke around with her male friends about love-line things, making fans love it so much. She has not got much confirmed dating news. The only leak is the one with her long time boyfriend, Lee Jin-wook.
Despite her friendship with male actors, we haven’t heard any confirmed dating rumors. It seems to be so long since her relationship with Lee Jin-wook, who was actually her close friend before. Her ex-boyfriend, Ryoo Seung-bum, got married recently. So we guess she will get another one soon. Some fans sent her encouragement to get married soon because of her ex-boyfriend’s wedding last June. We also hope her next drama will be out in 2021 because she’s currently active in various shows.
Is Gong Hyo-jin’s Already Married? Who is Her Husband?
Gong Hyo-jin was born in 1980, and she’s already 40 years old. Until now, she’s still single, which obviously makes others ask about her plan for marriage. In one of the programs in which she appeared to be a guest on tvN, she was asked about her independent life. After so many people asked about her love life, she said her mom doesn’t press her to get married, even though she is already 40 years old. Marriage is not that urgent because Gong Hyo-jin has a good career and has many friends as well, according to that interview.
She made the headlines a couple of months ago because many netizens flooded her social media right after her ex-boyfriend announced his engagement. There was a positive and negative side among the netizens. The fact that they are both in the same agency also got her fans’ attention. Although she is still single now, we hope she can find a good husband in the future!
