Who Is Lee Seung-gi?
Lee Seung-gi is a famous singer and actor from South Korea. He’s a unique man, in that when he was starting his debut, he didn’t have a cell phone and didn’t think he’d need one. Now, ten years after his debut, Lee Seung-gi still always protects his ‘pure’ image. He might be one of few the male idols that never get into a negative scandal.
But, how about his love life and dating scandal? Channel Korea will answer all your questions in this article, so get ready!
Lee Seung-gi’s Girlfriend, Yoona
One of the biggest news items that ever came up about Lee Seung-gi’s relationships was when he was in a relationship with Im Yoona, also known as Yoona, the visual member of girl-group Girls’ Generation. In 2014, they confirmed their relationship status, and some sources said they had already been dating since September 2013.
Lee Seung-gi might be the best boyfriend material ever, proven by when he picked Yoona up at her house, and they went to the Han river together. It was just a casual date, just like casual couples often do. From the very beginning, Lee Seung-gi always said that Yoona was his ideal type of woman. When he attending Strong Heart, Lee Seung-gi was even fighting with Super Junior’s Leeteuk and other members of Super Junior to get Yoona, even it was jokingly.
Most people said that they were the best couple so far because Lee Seung-gi and Yoona both had pure images, they dated healthily and took care of their privacy, to prevent negative rumors. Lee Seung-gi was already one of the pure idols, without any negative scandals.
They were never caught together by paparazzi, except once, in January 2014, when they were spotted by Dispatch. Before their dating scandal was confirmed, Lee Seung-gi never hesitated to admit that he had a crush on Yoona. He said he thought that Yoona was so pretty, and he liked her style. On one occasion Lee Seung-gi said that he only has three female celebrities’ phone numbers in his phone, they were all Lee Seung-gi’s colleagues that were ever in a project with him, and people said he had to put in a lot of effort to get Yoona’s number.
Both of their agencies confirmed the relationship. SM Entertainment, Yoona’s agency, announced “Lee Seung-gi and Yoona currently in a phase of getting to know each other,” moreover, Lee Seung-gi’s agency, GiHook Entertainment, said, “We didn’t know the detail because it was a private thing. But it’s true that they’re in a relationship, they’re still young and they’re in a good timing to know each other better,”
Lee Seung-gi and Yoona were in a relationship for almost two years, but sadly, they split up in 2015. Their bustle was the primary reason why the couple split. When Yoona appeared in OnStyle TV, she was being asked about Lee Seung-gi. She diplomatically said that her girl-group, Girls’ Generation, was more important than her personal love-life, but they ended their relationship in such a good way. The truth of that seemed clear, when Lee Seung-gi got an award in 2017 and made a funny speech, Yoona looked like she was laughing a little when she saw Lee Seung-gi on stage.
Lee Seung-gi’s List of Exes
Some sources said that Lee Seung-gi is keeping his ‘pure’ image, so there’s nothing much about his past girlfriends, except for Girls’ Generation’s Yoona. On one occasion, Lee Seung-gi said that he never gets ‘close’ with other girls. Lee Seung-gi also said he’s never gotten a confession from someone, maybe because he might look hard to approach. He went on to say that he was open to dating someone new if it comes from a mutual feeling.
But, for the record, Lee Seung-gi once had a ‘relationship’ with actress Bae Suzy. Lee Seung-gi and Suzy met first on the set of Gu Family Book. After their successful portrayal as a ‘couple’ building up a ‘relationship’ in that drama, their chemistry showed again in drama Vagabond.
