AceShowbiz - Are Dongjun (a.k.a. Kim Dong Jun) and Go Sung Hee the next South Korean stars revealed to be a couple this year? Rumors emerged on Thursday, March 22 that the 26-year-old member of ZE:A and the 27-year-old actress had been dating for about three months.
The two met on the set of SBS' "Master Key" in December last year and reportedly became close very quickly. A local news outlet reported that fans already knew about their relationship because the pair often went on dates together.
But after checking with the star, Kim Dong Jun's agency has denied the dating news. A source from Major9 says in a statement, "The rumors about Kim Dong Jun and Go Sung Hee dating are not true. They are just close colleagues." The source adds, "It's true that they met up often after 'Master Key', but they just hung out as friends and he was also in the United States this past month so he didn't even have time to date."
Go Sung Hee's agency similarly claims there's no truth to the dating reports. Saram Entertainment states, "Rumors that she's dating Dongjun are false. They are just friends."
In episode 12 of "Master Key" which aired on December 30, 2017, Kim Dong Jun and Go Sung Hee were paired up in a team against a second team consisting of Jeong Sewoon and Kim Jong Min, and a third consisting of Jun Hyun Moo and Seventeen's Mingyu. The pair grew close as they had to complete some missions while holding hands and often got other contestants, particularly Jun Hyun Moo, jealous for turning the competitive show into what looks like a romantic scene.
Kim Dong Jun most recently starred on OCN's fantasy-thriller series "Black" alongside Song Seung Heon and Go Ara. The show aired from October to December last year. As for Go Sung Hee, she starred on 2017's "While You Were Sleeping" and has a supporting role on ongoing tvN drama "Mother" and upcoming legal drama "Suits", which is based on the U.S. TV series of the same title.
