Girls’ Generation’s Yoona
There was a rumor claiming that Kim Soo-hyun dated Girls’ Generation’s Yoona back in 2012 since Kim Soo-hyun gained his fame from starring in Dream High. It was reported that Kim Soohyun and Yoona had their first meeting in a church and both were dating each other.
There’s nothing to be found when it comes to any proof of their dating in the past. But, according to rumors, they broke up in 2013 because of Kim Soo-hyun’s personality. Many people assumed that Yoona made the decision to break up after netizens found a post from his Cyworld around 2008 which made them assume he has a dark and psychotic personality. Here is the translation of Kim Soo-hyun’s Cyworld post from OneHallyu.com:
“I want you to be sad, want to die, and be regretful because of me.
No matter who you look at, you should only think of me.
You should never suspect anything of me.
You can’t concern yourself with my matters because it bothers me.
I’m good at swearing.
You need to always be there for me because I crave attention.
You have to be quick on reading me because I have a hot temper.
I’ll kill you if you try to school me.
Ah…. buy me some medicine. I get sick frequently.
I have an irregular pulse and need surgery for it.
Now, try and love me.
Throw me away if you can’t.
So at least I can cry sorrowfully.”
Neither of their agencies has confirmed the rumored past relationship or the reason for their breakup, but some forums have discussed their relationship, stating that it is true they dated each other around 2011/2012.
Kim Soo-hyun and Yoona haven’t confirmed the dating rumor yet, but the rumor has been spread through the Internet and caught people’s attention, leading to comments on Pann such as:
[+48, -2] I don’t know about Yoona and Kim Soo-hyun but I know that Kim Soo-hyun has psycho personalities. During his debut days, when he had no popularity, the pastor in my church knew him so he told me about it. He was dating someone when he debuted and she broke up with him. He rebelled, said he was gonna kill himself and made all sorts of mess, so the girl had a really hard time.
[+27, -0] Yeah my teacher in my speaking academy has a friend who works in the entertainment industry. He said Kim Soo-hyun’s personalities are psycho and perverted so Yoona couldn’t take it anymore and broke up with him.
[+104, -34] It’s real. Kim Soo-hyun and Yoona dated, but he’s a psycho so Yoona turned to dislike him and they broke up.
[+26, -1] I heard about Kim Soo-hyun and Yoona so many times. Years ago, I saw a picture of a female idol and a male actor with masks at a theater, and they looked like Yoona and Kim Soo-hyun.
[+56, -1] You can tell that Kim Soo-hyun is an attention seeker and a psycho from his pre-debut photos. I don’t understand why people praise him so much ㅋㅋ
Allegations of Kim Soo-hyun’s dark personality when he was in the pre-debut stage are shared on the Internet but neither his agency or Kim Soo-hyun himself have confirmed the claims.
