Is Lee Min Ho the New Beau of Taylor Swift?
Is South Korean heartthrob Lee Min Ho the new apple of the eye of singer-composer Taylor Swift?
Allkpop reported that the rumor began to spread like wildfire on the Internet after a Channel News Asia article included Lee on the list of five available, worthy bachelors to be Swift's next eye candy. Aside from Lee, the other celebrities on the list are Leonardo DiCaprio, Drake, Singaporean Olympic gold medalist Joseph Schooling, and Lee's fellow Hallyu star, BIGBANG's leader, G-Dragon.
Channel News Asia wrote, "At 29 years, Lee is the ideal age for Swift. The ridiculously popular award-winning South Korean actor, singer, and model (who first gained huge fame with the drama Boys Over Flowers) can also bond with the American singer over the intense pressure of idolatry and fame, as well as having a similar romantic history of leaving a trail of broken hearts."
However, hardcore Hallyu fans know that this rumor is far from being true because Lee is still dating idol-actress Bae Suzy. An article from the International Business Times stated, "Meanwhile, Lee Min Ho is still dating Suzy Bae. Although the two have not been seen together, their agencies recently stated that the Korean celebrities are still dating. The "Gangnam Blues" actor has been busy with filming for his upcoming television series, "The Legend of the Blue Sea."
On September 19, the actor's agency, MYM Entertainment, released a statement regarding the rumor and stated, "We think it is an international, groundless rumor. It is completely untrue. Lee Min Ho and Taylor Swift have never even met before."
In other news, Lee Min Ho is spotted filming in Barcelona with Jun Ji Hyun, his leading lady in his new TV series. The Legend of the Blue Sea" is a fantasy romance TV drama and is set to air on South Korean TV station SBS later this year.
