Lee Seung-gi and Yoona’s Relationship
Yoona and Lee Seung-gi were a very popular couple when they were together! Since the first time it came out that they were dating, Yoona’s and Lee Seung-gi’s fans were getting really excited and happy about their relationship. Previously, their fans already expected them to have an relationship since Lee Seung-gi revealed that Yoona had been his ideal type of woman for years!
Moreover, he also often joking about it while he was hosting the show Strong Heart, as well! There were certain times when Lee Seung-gi and Yoona were attending the same event, whether for being TV hosts together or even they performing a duet, that people used to tease them, and the couple would just smile sheepishly in response.
The first encounter between Yoona and Lee Seung-gi was in 2007, during a certain music stage. At that time, Lee Seung-gi was promoting his single White Lie, and Yoona was attending the same music stage along with the other Girls’ Generation members. That first meeting was followed by other occasions when they saw each other on variety shows, music shows, and other events, as well!
The relationship was revealed in December 2013, when Dispatch caught them on a date on Han River. Previously, Dispatch had already been keeping their ‘eyes’ on the couple for a couple of months. Not only that, there were several pictures of them on the date, and it was reported that Lee Seung-gi went to Yoona’s home and picked her up. People were really amazed by their relationship, since Lee Seung-gi was a kind of a romantic guy who brought Yoona a gift when he returned from giving a concert in Japan.
The fact that they were in a relationship was confirmed by both Yoona and Lee Seung-gi’s agencies. SM Entertainment, which was Yoona’s agency, also confirmed the dating news. They said that Yoona and Lee Seung-gi were in the stage of getting to know each other better.
Meanwhile, Hook Entertainment, which was Lee Seung-gi’s agency, confirmed the same thing about the dating news. Even though they didn’t know the details about the relationship since it was private, they hope that fans would extend their love for, and support of, the relationship
People started finding out more about their relationship, since Dispatch only caught them while they were dating in the car. Just like any other couple, they had nice conversations and drove around Han River or Namsan Tower, just having a great time together. It was also reported that Yoona and Lee Seung-gi never left the car when they were on a date, which gave their relationship some privacy and helped them avoid being the center of people’s attention.
They used to call the time they spent together ‘Cinderella Dates’, because they could usually only get together for an hour or two at a time. Since their time was so limited, it reminds us of the fairy tale with the Prince and Cinderella, which is why Dispatch also gave the same nickname for their relationship. Right after their date was over, Lee Seung-gi would drove Yoona back to her home. Well, it sounds like a Cinderella story in real life, right?
Yoona and Lee Seung-gi’s relationship started in 2013 and, unfortunately, it ended in 2015.
