Park Hyung-sik and Park Bo-young are playing the leading roles in one of the highest rated Korean dramas in cable television history, Strong Woman Do Bong-soon.
Strong Woman Do Bong-soon is about Do Bong-soon (Park Bo-young) who was born with superhuman strength. Her strength is hereditary and passed along only to the women in her family. Her dream is to create a video game with herself as the main character. She desperately wants to become a willowy and elegant woman, which is the ideal type of her crush, In Guk-doo (Ji Soo), a police officer. Thanks to her strength, she gets the job of a bodyguard to a rich heir Ahn Min-hyuk (Park Hyung-sik), the CEO of a gaming company, Ainsoft.
The two actors’ chemistry lit up the screen and they perfectly pulled off romantic scenes, including kissing scenes, like a real-life couple would, which caused many to wonder if the two were actually dating.
Park Hyung-sik and Park Bo-young’s Relationship
Park Hyung-sik revealed that his love for Park Bo-young in Strong Woman Do Bong-soon was real, both on-screen and off-screen.
“Park Bo-young noona, I really loved you. You were that lovable. You were truly Bong-soon. Because you were the perfect Bong-soon, it was so natural for me to love you. I wanted to love you more but I’m sad it’s over.” — Park Hyung-sik
Park Bo-young and Park Hyung-sik gained attention for their incredible chemistry while filming the drama in 2017, leading to dating rumors between the two.
Park Hyung-sik later admitted he did have feelings for his co-star while filming and that she was the deciding factor in him taking the role of Ahn Min-hyuk.
“I thought I would be foolish to miss this opportunity, so I agreed to star. But later on, I found out my partner would be Park Bo-young. That’s when I thought I definitely had to do this. Everyone around me was envious.” — Park Hyung-sik
He explained that he particularly loved his role in Strong Woman Do Bong-soon because he believes his genuine emotions made his performance his best yet.
“Ahn Min-hyuk fell in love at first sight with Do Bong-soon, so I loved Do Bong-soon completely. Since I was adopting Ahn Min-hyuk’s emotions, our kissing scenes were really natural and nicely shot. I felt she was important and I cared for her. As their love became mutual, Ahn Min-hyuk’s genuine affection for her started showing. Of course, I think it was because Park Bo-young was so lovable.” — Park Hyung-sik
And Park Bo-young also admitted she easily could have fallen for his intense gaze. “Park Hyung-sik has a sweet gaze. If he had just looked at me like that, I would have swooned, but he even looked at the director in the same way.”
Even though the two have moved on to new projects, the couple is still fiercely shipped by the series’ fans.
They continue to show their friendship off-screen, sending each other congratulatory churros and coffee when they each started filming their new shows!
Park Hyung-sik and Park Bo-young Dating?
Fans are certainly rooting for Park Hyung-sik and Park Bo-young to be together. After all, the chemistry between them in Strong Woman Do Bong-soon was evident throughout the series. In addition to that, the Suits star has repeatedly expressed his love for his co-star. But is it possible that the Your Wedding actress is having some trouble with Hyung-sik? One of the actor’s recent posts on social media may have given away his problems.
There have been speculations about Park Hyung-sik and Park Bo-young officially dating, however, neither has confirmed the news. Nevertheless, fans are quick to point out that the Suits star had proudly shared an image of the sweet present he received from the Strong Woman Do Bong-soon actress on his official Instagram account. Some believe that the gift was proof that Hyung-sik has finally won Bo-young over.
But is it possible that the relationship is already on the rocks? Park Hyung-sik recently shared a series of photos of himself in what looks like his usual Suits getup on his official Instagram account. However, Park Bo-young’s former co-star appears to be disheveled and somehow sad. Hyung-sik even captioned the images to confirm he has been drinking, albeit moderately. Not surprisingly, the post had fans wondering if the actor is having problems in his relationship with Park Bo-young.
But what could come between Park Hyung-sik and Park Bo-young? There are speculations that the Suits star might be spending too much time working and is not able to see the Strong Woman Do Bong-soon actress as often as she would like. In addition to that, some believe that Bo-young might be unhappy that her former co-star is working with other actresses.
Park Bo-young’s possible jealousy could also stem from Park Hyung-sik’s tendency to look intense. The Strong Woman Do Bong-soon actress previously admitted that she “would have swooned” if her co-star kept looking at her with his “sweet gaze.” However, she also pointed out that the Suits actor regards other people, including the director, the same way.
It is still unclear whether Park Hyung-sik and Park Bo-young are having troubles in their relationship. Hopefully, things will work out for the Strong Woman Do Bong-soon stars.
