AceShowbiz - Amid his sexual harassment scandal, rumors about Onew's dating life have been swirling online. The embattled leader of Korean boy group SHINee is reported to be dating his "Descendants of the Sun" co-star, Park Hwan Hee, a divorcee with a child.
Laying out the evidence, sources say that the 27-year-old singer/actor and the ex-wife of rapper Vasco a.k.a. Bill Stax went to a cafe together and she once attended SHINee's concert. She also liked a SHINee fan art picture and Onew followed Hwan Hee's private Instagram account.
Onew, who isn't a Christian, reportedly started attending church since he's dating Hwan Hee. Even Onew's recent collaboration with Rocoberry was said to have happened because of Hwan Hee and Rocoberry's good relationship since they become church friends.
While some are not convinced that Onew and Hwan Hee are dating based on the said evidence, some fans believe that the two were indeed dating but they have broken up now. Some also said that Onew quit drinking when he began dating Hwan Hee, but he began drinking again since they split.
On "Descendants of the Sun", Onew played Lee Chi Hoon, a 1st year resident of Thoracic Surgery, while Hwan Hee starred as ER nurse Choi Min Ji, who are both sent as a medical team to Uruk. The drama that aired on KBS in 2016 became a huge hit. Its lead actors Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo began dating after meeting on the set and are set to tie the knot in October.
Onew, meanwhile, has been lying low after hit with sexual harassment allegation. A woman claimed she was inappropriately touched by the "Moonlight" singer at a night club. The woman eventually dropped the charges as SM Entertainment stated that the situation was caused by a misunderstanding, but the case was still sent to prosecution.
As for Hwan Hee, she is starring on currently airing MBC drama "The King in Love", which also features Im Yoona, Im Siwan and Hong Jong Hyun.
