Previously on December 31st, 2018, Lee Kwang-Soo’s agency ‘Kingkong by Starship’ confirmed that he and 24-year-old actress Lee Sun-Bin have been dating for around five months. “They first became close colleagues through the show Running Man before their relationship evolved into a romantic relationship,” said the agency. Shortly after, Lee Sun-Bin’s agency, too, admitted the actress’ relationship with Lee Kwang-Soo.
According to the initial report, the two didn’t try to hide their affection to each other in front of their close family and friends. And the happy couple is ‘currently accompanying each other to gatherings and introducing each other as their significant others’. “Lee Kwang Soo openly carried on the relationship by introducing Lee Sun Bin as his girlfriend to his close friends Jo In Sung, D.O., Lim Joo Hwan, and Kim Ki Bang. The two spend time with close friends when meeting outside and hang out at Lee Kwang Soo’s house when having a date of their own”.
Previously, Lee Sun-Bin, who is nine years younger than Lee Kwang-Soo, had indicated that he is her ideal type during the episode of MBC’s “Radio Star” which aired back on August 31st, 2016. Also on the October 4th, 2016, during “Kim Chang Ryul’s Old School” radio broadcast, she said that she wanted to marry Lee Kwang-Soo. “Lee Kwang Soo is so fun and refreshing, and I hear that in real life, he’s taciturn. I really like that image and am a sincere fan. I thought that someone like that would be close to an ideal type in real life. Now that I’m saying this aloud, it seems like I’m not being that sincere, but I am sincerely his fan”.
Their Romantic Moments on Running Man
The two first met in September 2016 when they were filming the SBS TV program Running Man, on which Lee Kwang-Soo is a regular cast member meanwhile Lee Sun-Bin was a guest. Lee Sun-Bin appeared on the 319th episode of Running Man as one of the three female celebrities who declared Lee Kwang-Soo as her ideal type. And during their ‘date’ on the show, Kwangsoo had also expressed interest in Sunbin and even jokingly said they would get married in a week.
Lee Kwang-Soo was vocal about his admiration for the actress and showed his true feelings during the broadcast. Who knows that after 2 years, they ended up being together in real life? Here are some cute moments between them on the show you should know!
They met up at an arcade where they both at first sit and talk. Lee Sun-Bin even found the name initials of Song Ji-Eun on Lee Kwang-Soo’s nail and asked him how many girls he met before her. Lee Kwang-Soo asked her about what kind of men she likes, and Sunbin said, “YOU!”. Lee Kwang-Soo became very shy.
Kwangsoo prepared a lie detector machine to test her sincerity. Before they used the machine, Kwangsoo asked Sunbin, “Your ideal type of guy is truly Lee Kwang-Soo?” and she answered yes with no hesitation. However, the machine said that she was lying. What made us funny was, she struggled to endure the machine’s electronic attack and pretended not to get pain from the machine. Seeing this, Kwangsoo disappointed the result and he begged staffs to try it again. The second attempt registers her answer as another lie, which is when Sunbin bursts laughing insisting that she really does like Kwangsoo. They both blame the lie detector toy on the false negative. To this, Sunbin kept revealed her heart was true but Kwangsoo lost his words for a while. (video here)
Also during the date, Lee Kwang-Soo punched a dummy boxer, which Sunbin found very funny. Later Lee Kwang-Soo taught Sunbin how to shoot, and after learning that, she shot right on the aim. Another moment was when Kwangsoo arrives to find that filming has already wrapped. All that’s left is his other shoe. In order to leave the viewers with a shocking twist, Kwangsoo reveals, “We’ve decided to date! We’ll make our wedding announcement next week!” (video here)
Evidently, the pair couldn’t just let things slide after filming was done. They went on to become close friends before taking their relationship to the next level. Their on-screen romance turned real and now they’re true lovers. Even Lee Kwang-Soo himself has been introducing Lee Sun-Bin as ‘my girlfriend’ during social events.
