Yoon Kyun-Sang’s Dating Rumor with Lee Sung-Kyung

The popularity of the Doctors drama is still felt today. Not only because of the chemistry between Park Shin-Hye and Kim Rae-Won, but also the dating rumors of Lee Sung-Kyung and the handsome Yoon Kyun-Sang.

Because of the roles they played, Lee Sung-Kyung and Yoon Kyun-Sang actually got caught up in rumors of love. Many fans suspected that their love story actually continued into the real world. Hearing this, the 29-year-old actor finally decided to speak up. “I heard a lot of news about our relationship after there were many photos of us together on Instagram. We both laughed. I think that it is because our chemistry in the drama is too good,” he told Woman Sense.

As we know, in Doctors, Yoon Kyun-Sang plays the character Jung Yoon-Do, a handsome and young doctor who assisted Jin Seo-Woo (Lee Sung-Kyung). Although it doesn’t end in courtship, their chemistry there really deserves a thumbs up.

Plus, both Lee Sung-Kyung and Yoon Kyun-Sang often upload photos of them together. In fact, recently, they also had time to spend together with Lee Jong-Suk.

Yoon Kyun-Sang’s Ideal Type of Woman Is Song Ji-Hyo?

Yoon Kyun-Sang’s Ideal Type of Woman

He doesn’t really care about a woman’s face and body. According to Yoon Kyun-Sang, it’s enough for him if the woman pulls in his eyes. Also, she must be attractive in the eyes of others.

He seems to believe in the saying “beauty lies in the eye of the beholder.” He really dislikes the manners that he often sees in various restaurants.

Women must respect everyone, that’s what he wants. Continuing, he said that the woman must be someone he can see when he is tired.

Yoon Kyun-Sang’s View on Marriage

He believes in marriage only if he finds his ideal type. To maintain a long-lived relationship, a person should marry after being fully satisfied with his partner.

Yoon Kyun-Sang’s Scandal

Yoon Kyun-Sang has been facing criticism for buying an experimental cat breed called Scottish Kilt. He apologized to the public for the controversy he caused from his fourth and latest pet cat Somyi.

On February 21, the actor shared a photo of Somyi with the caption, “Somyi is a Scottish Kilt. Scottish Kilt is a problematic breed that was developed as a result of human greed. It could be described as mutation breeding. Most of these breeds have a genetic disorder and are often sick. They are usually weaker than normal cats.”

He continued, “Somyi had a skin disease and as you can see in the photo, she has severe malocclusion. Many people say we should adopt [these breeds] instead of purchasing them, but I had no plans to [get another pet]. However, she’s a baby that already entered the world, and when I saw how sick she was, I ultimately took her home.”

Upon reading his post, many netizens expressed concern, saying that it would create a demand for experimental breeds. Because Yoon Kyun Sang is a public figure, some are worried that his post will encourage people to buy these breeds at pet shops.

Previously, netizens flooded the actor’s Instagram with hate comments, accusing him of “buying an experimental breed from a pet shop.” While Yoon Kyun Sang explained that he had purchased Somyi even knowing that the purchase of the breed is immoral because he could not ignore the sick cat. Netizens did not let up their malicious accusations toward him.

As a result, Yoon Kyun Sang posted a second, lengthy letter of apology, this time accompanied by a photo of his cat Ddomi.

He wrote:


I know what the problem is. I wrote a post as you wanted. Then, you said that was not right so I deleted it all, including the photos. I realize that I am a public figure. I apologize for forgetting that for a moment. I know what the problem was. I will be more aware of it now. 

I plead you, this is my Instagram. Most people who visit here and leave comments are probably those who are fond of me, are interested in me, are curious about me, or are my fans. Those people are not just saying “It’s okay” because they do not know anything. They are leaving those words of comfort in the case that I may be having a difficult time. They are only thinking of this undeserving person. It’s not that I did not do wrong; it’s that I admit I was wrong. I am being punished for being wrong and am reflecting on my actions, and those people are just comforting me beside me, saying it’s okay and not to make the same mistake next time. It is not that they’re leaving comments without any thoughts. I have received tens of hundreds of comments and messages from punitive commenters. I hear you.

So, please, stop here.”

Yoon Kyun-Sang Speaks up About His Friendship with Lee Jong-Suk

Yoon Kyun-Sang spoke of his good relationship with fellow actor Lee Jong-Suk.

On November 27, 2017, Yoon Kyun-Sang appeared at the press conference for Doubtful Victory and discussed his friendship with Lee Jong-Suk. The 187 cm actor revealed that he and Lee Jong-Suk have known each other for a long time so they do not encourage each other with beautiful words. He stated, “Lee Jong-Suk often sends messages to me like don’t get sick or like asking me to hang out.”

Lee Jong-Suk often gives support to Yoon Kyun-Sang and will sometimes send a coffee truck to his set: “Lee Jong-Suk always encourages me. He once sent me a coffee truck to the set. It was very good to have a friend like my sister.”

Yoon Kyun-Sang and Lee Jong-Suk became close friends when they were involved in the drama Pinocchio in 2014. They had chemistry as siblings in the drama. The sibling relationship in Pinocchio continues to the real world. They often display their closeness on their respective Instagram accounts via photo postings and comments. Yoon Kyun-Sang and Lee Jong-Suk also often show support for their latest projects. For instance, Yoon Kyun-Sang was a cameo in Lee Jong-Suk’s latest drama While You Were Sleeping, and Lee Jong-Suk sent a coffee truck when Yoon Kyun-Sang was filming the dramas Doctors and Doubtful Victory.

Currently, Yoon Kyun-Sang is preoccupied with his new drama Doubtful Victory as the main character who is a convict who managed to escape from prison and become a fake detective. And, Lee Jong-Suk is taking a break after finishing While You Were Sleeping and a fan meeting last September.
