Grazia recently published pictures and interview with Lee Sung Kyung of ‘Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo’, in which she talked about her boyfriend, Nam Joo Hyuk.
The interview was done when the pair had not confirmed their relationship. Netizen pointed out that Lee Sung Kyung’s answer about feeling satisfied working with Nam Joo Hyuk was actually a hint that they’re dating in real life.
Lee Sung Kyung said, “Personally, ‘Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo’ is a very memorable drama for me. First of all, the script was so good, and second, Bok Joo was a very adorable character. The team always made the atmosphere in the shooting locations very comfortable. Moreover, Nam Joo Hyuk and I have known each other since a long time ago, therefore, everything became so much easier. I could say that this is my most satisfying drama so far.”
Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk confirmed their off-screen relationship on April 24. Their agency, YG Entertainment, stated, “Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk are dating carefully after being long time friends since their modeling days.” The couple apparently started dating in the middle of shooting ‘Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo’.
