Kim Go-eun’s Love Life
On August 23, 2016, HODU&U Entertainment released an official statement about the relationship between actress Kim Go-eun and actor Shin Ha-kyun, a veteran actor who is seventeen years her senior. Both are from the same agency and developed a close relationship as colleagues. Both also joined a scuba diving club and became close to each other, and this eventually grew into something more.
But, sadly, Kim Go-eun announced they broke up after 8 months on March 22, 2017. Rumor has it that the reason for the breakup was because of the closeness between Kim Go-eun and actor Gong Yoo, her co-star in Goblin. Previously, a rumor arose while they were filming the drama, but it died down since Go-eun and Sin Ha-kyun were still together at the time. Following the breakup, the rumor was brought up once again and the public speculated that the reason for Kim Go-eun and Shin Ha-kyun’s breakup was indeed because of Gong Yoo.
A source from HODU&U Entertainment clarified the rumors and said, “The suspicions about her relationship with Gong Yoo is not true. They just worked together in a drama. Her breakup with Shin Ha-kyun was purely because of their schedules and not because of someone else.”
The president of Gong Yoo’s agency, Soop Entertainment, also addressed the rumors through his personal Instagram and stated, “Creating rumors about things that are not true and things that did not happen like this, who is scribbling so preposterously. There is no truth, but there are rumors. And a lot of them.”
For now, there is no new update about Kim Go-eun’s potential boyfriend, but the actress is currently busy filming a new movie, Joyful Music Album. She is reunited with director Jung Ji-qoo who previously worked with her on her debut film Eungyo and Jung Hae-in, a fellow cast member from Goblin. The movie is set to be released next year.
