AceShowbiz - Seo In Guk and Park Bo Ram are officially an item! On Wednesday, December 6 (KST), report emerged that the 30-year-old singer/actor and the 23-year-old songstress have been dating for the past year and a half.
Following the news, In Guk's label BS Company confirms it in a statement. "It's true that Seo In Guk is dating Park Bo Ram," the agency says, adding, "We don't know the specific details." Meanwhile, Bo Ram's label CJ E&M responds to the news by saying, "We are looking into the rumors."
According to TV Report, the two were often spotted on secret dates. They reportedly left from different locations and met up at their own special hangout spot. The "Hello Monster" star was a great support for Bo Ram when her mother passed away in October, following the passing of her father in 2010.
"I can really feel Seo In Guk's sincerity towards Park Bo Ram," says a source connected to the couple. "Even though he's been going through some tough times these days, he tries not to show it in front of Park Bo Ram. He picks up the phone right away whenever she calls him. I hope people will support their relationship."
Bo Ram is reportedly also there for In Guk who has been having a difficult time after he was exempt from military. The "Reply 1997" actor initially enlisted quietly on March 28, but left mandatory military service four days later due to a fractured ankle. After a medical re-examination, he was revealed to be diagnosed with Osteochondritis dissecans, a bone and cartilage condition. He was declared at a Grade 5 health rating and subsequently became exempt from military duty. Some people have since criticized the actor, accusing him of making up reason to avoid serving in military.
The pair are coincidentally stars born out of Mnet's reality show "Superstar K". In Guk joined the talent show's first season in 2009 and won, while Bo Ram appeared in the second season in 2010 and finished in eighth place.
