[Rumor] Yoon Kye Sang and Honey Lee dating?

Posted: 18 Jan 2013 07:29 AM PST

Yoon Kye Sang and Honey Lee are rumored to be dating.

The ex-g.o.d member and former Miss Korea were both spotted leaving for Bali, Indonesia on the 17th. One insider alleged, “Yoon Kye Sang and Honey Lee started out as showbiz colleagues, and they’ve now become a couple. They have a good relationship.”

However, Honey Lee’s agency has denied the rumors, explaining, “She did not leave for Bali with Yoon Kye Sang. She went on a vacation, and the two happened to have gone at the same time. [Honey Lee] knows someone there, which is why she went alone. There are plans for her to return early next week.”

Yoon Kye Sang’s camp also stated, “It’s true that Yoon Kye Sang is in Bali at the moment. He left with his family yesterday. This is the first time we’ve heard of these rumors. They’ve never even worked on a project together, so we don’t know where the rumors came from. We asked him personally, and he said they are not dating.”

What do you think? Is it just a coincidence? Or is it too coincidental to be chance?
