The Popular South Korean Celebrity Couple, Park Seo-joon and Baek Jin-hee
The famous South Korean actor and actress couple who have been rumored of dating are Park Seo-joon and Baek Jin-hee. The two of them met while working together on the MBC drama titled Gold, Appear!, in 2013. In the drama, the 27-year-old actor and 25-year-old actress played a young married couple. They had a very strong on-screen chemistry so viewers hoped that they will become partners in real life. After the drama ended, they kept contacting each other.
Park Seo-joon and Baek Jin-hee, who had their first encounter on the 2013 MBC drama Pots of Gold, acting as a young and immature married couple continued their relationship from there on. According to a media representative, issuing a statement on January 5th, the two of them had been dating for two years. When a scandal broke out last July, their agencies denied the romance, saying that they were only close friends.
According to other media representatives, Park Seo-joon and Baek Jin-hee did not want the public to know they were dating because their careers had just started getting public attention. They decided that revealing their relationship would only be a burden for their acting careers, especially when they were right in the spotlight of the drama.
However, despite the denial, their agencies issued, the two of them caught the eyes of viewers by wearing several pairs of rings together and sharing photos wearing jackets from the same brand on social media.
Park Seo-joon even moved to Geumhodong, Seoul, where Baek Jin-hee lives. This is to make it easier for them to develop their relationship. According to eyewitness neighbors, both of them openly reveal their intimate status by walking around the neighborhood or having intimate dates in a car.
Although the couple seems to be unaware of the public eyes, their agencies are very worried about this situation. A representative from Snow Boll Entertainment, the agency that houses Baek Jin-hee, said, “It is not easy for an actress to reveal her relationship if both are not ready to get married.”
Park Seo-joon will play the role of the twin brother Hwang Jung-eum in the MBC drama Kill Me Heal Me, which is scheduled to be aired on January 7th, and Baek Jin-hee is currently starring in the MBC drama, Pride and Prejudice.

Pak Seo-joon Opened up About the Recurring Dating Rumors with Baek Jin-hee
During a press conference for the MBC drama Kill Me Heal Me, on January 21, Park Seo-joon said, “I don’t know where the eyewitness account came from when I didn’t even meet up with her.”
One media outlet previously reported that Park Seo-joon and Baek Jin-hee have been dating for two years. According to the report, Park Seo-joon recently moved to Geumho-dong, where Baek Jin-hee lives, which made it easier for them to date. This was the second time that the two people have been caught in a dating rumor. About this, both their agencies stated, “They are just close colleagues and are not dating.”
His stance was not much different from his agency’s as Park Seo-Joon said, “I also read the news and there was one thing they were right about. It’s true that we live in the same neighborhood. I moved to the area after getting advised to do so because my old neighborhood had many problems with parking but I didn’t know that it would cause such a big problem. There was a picture showing that we were wearing couple’s padding jackets but that jacket was sponsored.”
About being involved in dating rumors with Baek Jin-hee on repeated accounts, Park Seo-joon shared, “In my head, I think, ‘if I meet her privately, I’ll be proving them right,’ since the articles came out twice, which I feel like that it’s narrowing my interpersonal relationships.”
He then smiled as he said, “On a positive note, I would like to act opposite her (Baek Jin-hee) in my next project and show our fantastic chemistry, as Ji Sung-hyung and Hwang Jung-eum noona.”
In Kill Me Heal Me, Park Seo-joon will be acting as both the twin brother of Oh Ri-jin (Hwang Jung-eum) and the genius novelist Oh Ri On.
Park Seo-joon said, “Actually, I think that many people didn’t anticipate this project. But no one knows unless the lid opens. I also think that the viewership rating is God’s realm but thankfully, I think our project has the perfect balance between directing, scripts and acting.”
Kill Me Heal Me will depict the love story between the heir to a conglomerate company with multiple personality disorder and his private doctor, starring Ji Sung, Hwang Jung-eum, Park Seo-joon and more.
