Uee and Joo Won’s Dating News
The first male celebrity who was involved in a dating rumor with Uee is actor Joo Won. It is known that both Uee and Joo Won acted as lovers in their drama Ojakgyo Brothers. Their excellent on-screen chemistry earned a positive reaction from the viewers who were eager to see them as a real couple. In February 2012, the cast of Ojakgyo Brothers appeared in season 3 of KBS2’s Happy Together. During the Couple OX Quiz, both Uee and Joo Won were asked a question, “Would you actually date each other, if asked out?” to which both of them answered by holding the “O” panel.
Uee admitted that she could not help but involving her own feelings whenever she acted with Joo Won, “When I saw him putting on a suit for a scene, I realized that men in suits are actually very charismatic.” On the other hand, the public was able to see Joo Won’s caring side as stated by Uee during their interview in KBS’s Entertainment Relay, “He brings me hot packs on cold days and makes sure my jackets are zipped up all the way. He quietly takes care of me on the side. He helps me memorize my lines too.” Joo Won also expressed his adoration towards Uee by saying that every side of Uee is lovable.
After Ojakgyo Brothers ended, Uee and Joo Won were still mentioned in each other’s interviews. When Joo Won was interviewed by Ilgan Sports newspaper, he was asked what it was like to act with Uee and what were his feelings toward her, to which the actor replied that when he saw his character fall deeper for Uee’s character, he couldn’t help but become curious about Uee, “In that situation, if just one of the two of us had made up our minds and made a dash towards the other, we could have been a real-life couple.”
One year later, Uee and Joo Won met at the 49th Baeksang Arts Awards. At the event, Uee expressed her slight jealousy at Joo Won as he chose Choi Kang-hee as his best partner instead of her, “We received this award together and were overcome with emotion, but you chose Choi Kang-hee sunbaenim (senior) as your best partner. Have you forgotten me?” Joo Won replied tactfully to her statement by saying that he had a lot of fun watching Uee’s drama at that time Jeon Woo Chi.
Uee and Lee Sang-yoon’s Dating News
The second male celebrity whom Uee has been involved in a dating rumor with is actor Lee Sang-yoon. Unlike her previous dating rumor with Joo Won, Uee’s relationship with Lee Sang-yoon had been confirmed in May 2016, after an entertainment industry representative revealed that the stars have begun dating at the beginning of the year, after meeting each other at a group meeting. Prior to their relationship, Uee and Lee Sang-yoon were seen linking arms at the Mnet Asia Music Awards (MAMA) held in Hongkong in December 2015, though at that time they still hadn’t started dating. A close relation is what described Uee and Lee Sang-yoon’s activities when they go on dates, “They take care of one another like a regular couple. Sometimes they argue but the argument soon passes over. Their model-like looks are envied by many celebrities as well.”
In August 2016, Uee and Lee Sang-yoon were seen at the first birthday celebration (doljanchi) of their friend’s child. Comedian Yoon Sang-min, who attended the event as well, shared some photos that show Uee and Lee Sang-yoon’s attendance. The couple was also seen harmoniously when Lee Sang-yoon starred in On the Way to the Airport as Uee reportedly supported her boyfriend a lot, though jokingly said that he looks good together with his co-star actress Kim Ha-neul.
Unfortunately, Uee and Lee Sang-yoon’s relationship lasted only for a year as they decided to break up due to busy schedules that caused them to drift apart. Ecven though they are no longer lovers, Uee and Lee Sang-yoon remain as a good senior and junior in the entertainment industry for mutual support.
Uee and Kangnam’s Dating News
Finally, the most recent dating rumor that Uee has been involved in is with Kangnam, a member of the Korean hip-hop group M.I.B. Their relationship began after they met on SBS’s wildlife variety show Laws of the Jungle. Reportedly, the episode in which Uee and Kangnam appeared hit the best viewer ratings recorded in the show’s history, especially the part where Kangnam swung Uee’s hammock, showing his caring and protective side to her.
Initially, the dating rumor between Uee and Kangnam had been denied by both Uee’s agency (Yuleum Entertainment) and Kangnam’s agency (RD Entertainment), stating that they are only friends. A similar statement also came directly from Uee as she wrote a post on her personal Instagram (@uieing8849), “Currently filming! I was so startled when I got a sudden phone call! Kangnam oppa and I got close during Laws of the Jungle. We have eaten meals together with the staff after the show ended but to say that we are dating from that makes me sad???? Everyone! If I really start dating somebody, I will tell you! Right now, is working time!!! #ManHole.”
Dispatch then came forward and released photos of Uee and Kangnam that show their affectionate moments after meeting up. The undeniable proof made Uee and Kangnam’s agencies publicly reveal the relationship of their artists. Yuleum Entertainment specifically reasoned that they originally refuted the rumor because Uee did not want to cause harm to the upcoming drama (Manhole) that she is working on. On the other hand, RD Entertainment stated that the lovers have been dating for two months.
Sadly, Uee and Kangnam’s relationship finished one month later, in August 2017. Kangnam’s agency stated that Uee and Kangnam inevitably broke up because of their busy schedules, hence deciding to remain only colleagues. A more detailed reason was informed by Kangnam in late-October 2017, through his interview with media outlet BNT, “We were both busy with our dramas and we felt burdened by the publicity of our relationship, so we broke up.” He also said that he is not the type to hide his relationship, “I don’t mind getting caught, but, I realized that the other person might find it exhausting. I feel sorry (towards Uee).”
