Actress Park Min-young’s agency King Kong Entertainment has denied that Park and her co-star Park Yuchun of KBS TV series “SungKyunKwan Scandal” are dating.
“We talked to (Park) Min-young after the rumor broke out today but she said it wasn’t true,” King Kong told Asia Economic Daily over the phone on Thursday after reports emerged quoting industry officials as speculating the two were a couple.
The official at King Kong then added, “The rumor has existed since the show started and of course, there would be nothing wrong with them seeing each other on good terms but reporting on something that isn’t true as if it’s true is going a bit too far.”
The two, both 24, are said to be close on set but producers of the show explained that the entire cast, also including Song Joong-ki and Yoo A-in are all good friends.
In “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” Park Yuchun, former member of boy band TVXQ and now a singer of trio JYJ, plays a Confucian scholar named Lee Seon-joon who falls in love with a woman in disguise as a man, played by Park Min-young.
The series premiered with viewership ratings in the single-digit range but has seen its popularity pick up steadily to near the mid-ten percent range.
