Lee Dong-wook and Suzy were spotted going on a date in Cheongdam-dong. The eyewitness claimed that Lee Dong-wook was taking care of Suzy, indicating that they are a couple.
A close friend of both stars has said that before their scandal broke out to the public, they were actually merely in “some” stage of the relationship as they were frequently spotted hanging out together in public, going at a café, and other places. However, only after their relationship had become known to the public, Lee Dong-wook and Suzy decided to start dating officially.
