Song Joong Ki Rejects Bromance With Park Bo Gum, Chooses ‘Running Man’ Star Lee Kwang Soo
Avid fans have witnessed the close bond between label mates and celebrity friends Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Gum. Despite the two South Korean actors' closeness, it appears that Song's friendship with "Running Man" cast member Lee Kwang Soo has more weight than his bond with Park.
Park recently gushed over the "Descendants of the Sun" star when Song joined the actor as a special guest during his Thailand fan meeting. Held on Feb. 11, Saturday, one portion of the said event included an interview session where Park lavished his label mate with praises.
Highlighting Song's positive attributes, the "Reply 1988" star complimented the actor for his good looks, fit physique, as well as his thoughtfulness and kind behavior, Koreaboo reported. Song was flustered with Park's lavish compliments and even joked that the mood of the event was starting to become romantic.
The "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" actor then confessed that if he were a girl, Song would be the perfect guy to date. However, Song rejected Park's love confession and teased that he already has a bromance with his long-time friend Lee.
Song and Lee met in the variety show "Running Man." The "Battleship Island" star was one of the original cast members of the said SBS program but left the show to focus on his acting career.
Following Song's exit, the two South Korean celebrities remained close friends. He even made a surprise appearance on "Running Man" to visit Lee and his former cast members after the end of his military service.
The two friends would even appear in each other's drama projects in special roles. Lee was a guest star in "Descendants of the Sun," while Song made a cameo appearance in "The Sound of Your Heart."
In other news, Song showed off his casual style in in the latest photo shoot for a clothing brand. Images released by Top Ten, as obtained by Korea Herald, featured the actor in fashionable ensembles to depict a boyfriend look.
In one of the photo stills, Song wore a light blue hoodie partnered with brown pants and a pair of sneakers. The actor also exuded casual elegance in a long sleeved collared top with striped accents at the front that was matched with gray trousers.
Song's upcoming movie "Battleship Island" is expected to hit South Korean movie theaters in July.
