Kim Nam-gil’s Love Life
This time we’ll be talking about Kim Nam-gil’s romantic relationships, for those of you who are curious about who is Kim Nam-gil dating now? Who was his girlfriend? Would Kim Nam-gil marry soon? You better check this out!
Kim Nam-Gil’s Relationship with Son Ye-jin
Kim Nam-gil became with Son Ye-jin after they worked together as the main characters in the drama Shark. They had very good chemistry, and they were even rumored to have a deeper relationship outside of filming. The staff of the drama assumed that Kim Nam-gil and Son Ye-jin had a romantic relationship as they became close quickly during filming for the drama.
In 2013, SBS Entertainment Sports reported that the Kim Nam-gil and Son Ye-jin went from acquaintances to lovers in July, and had been dating for months, starting from the time they were making Shark. On the other side, Son Ye-jin’s agency, M Steam Entertainment, confirmed that they were absolutely not in a romantic relationship. They became closer just because of their work playing a couple for the drama. If they really were dating, they would be honest about it.
Kim Nam-gil and Son Ye-jin continued their togetherness when they worked together on the movie Pirates, which made fans wonder about their relationship even more. Dating rumors rose again while the two were filming Pirates. The actors just kept it cool, though, even when Senior Park Chul Min joked around by saying that they should just get married.
Their closeness as ‘friends’ seemed inaccurate by those who watched them when they were working together. Kim Nam-gil surprised Son Ye-jin at a screening for her film The Accomplice on October 9, at Wangsimni CGV in Seoul. Kim Nam-gil shouted loudly, “Son Ye- Jin is the best!” as the actress was called to give a ‘thanks bow’. Son Ye-jin was surprised, and replied “Thank You, Nam Gil oppa”.
Kim Nam-gil and Son Ye-jin Talk about Each Other
In an interview for the movie Pirates, Kim Nam-gil was asked by a reporter, “What is Son Ye-jin really look like on set as your chemistry with Son Ye-jin is so amazing that dating rumors between you flared up?” Kim Nam-gil responded that even though Son Ye-Jin’s role in Pirates is different than her character in Shark, both were matched well with him.
He then added, “I think both of our characters fit us well, as we both got into characters that bring out our own unique traits to life. There is a scene in Pirates where I tease Son Ye-jin and she nags at me. We joke a lot in real life so the scene was really familiar. It was as if we were in our own comfort zone and our chemistry is great. Personally, I’m happy we’re able to work together.”
Meanwhile, when Son Ye-jin was asked about Kim Nam-gil, she said that Kim Nam-gil is just like Jang Sa-jung (Kim Nam-gil’s role in Pirates). She also said that in real life, he’s more talkative and fun. He is a bit of a klutz and is friendly. She then continued by saying, “The image of him up to now is all a lie. Since I’ve known that side of him from Shark, it was really comfortable working with him this time. In that sense, I think Jang Sa Jung fits him well.”
