Park Ha Sun and Ryu Duk Hwan spotted together in Singapore

Posted: 31 Dec 2012 06:03 AM PST

Actor Ryu Duk Hwan and actress Park Ha Sun were recently spotted in close quarters at a resort pool in Singapore, adding fuel to the rumors that the two recently became a pair.

Earlier, both agencies behind the celebrities had denied dating rumors, saying, “The two of them are merely close friends” and “They visited Singapore with eight of their acquaintances”.

However, as reports and pictures started coming out from Singapore that the two of them were spotted with each other, the rumors gained fresh credence.

To the re-ignited rumors, the agencies’ responses remained largely the same. “Park Ha Sun’s relative lives in Singapore, so they went to visit with friends,” said a representative for the actress. “We plan to check whether or not the person in the photo is really the correct person, but in the meantime, we ask that everyone refrain from blowing this out of proportion.”

Soloist Hong Kyung Min reveals that he is in a relationship

Posted: 30 Dec 2012 09:41 PM PST

Singer Hong Kyung Min revealed that he is currently in a relationship with a non-celebrity.

In a recent interview with TV Report, the singer confessed, “It is true that I’m currently dating a woman. I’m sorry for not telling the complete truth earlier.”

His remarks come after a news organization captured images of him having dinner with a female. At the time, he had denied the dating claims, saying, “The dating rumors are not true. I’m naturally close with my female colleagues, so it was probably a misunderstanding.”

In the interview, however, he went back on his previous claim, saying, “The woman isn’t a celebrity, so I wanted to protect her. I’m a celebrity, so I can handle some lack of privacy. But she isn’t, and I didn’t want to cause her any stress.”

He revealed that he first met her through mutual friends. She is a small business owner. He declined to comment further on marriage prospects, saying, “This may also damage the other side, so there is nothing I can say with certainty right now.”
