As a matter of fact, it was claimed that the Song-Song couple has been very cozy with each other while working on the hit series. However, a friend close to the South Korean superstars told Koreaboo that the two had actually fallen for each other before the camera started rolling.

The study was conducted amidst the popularity of Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food show, which was based on the real-life love story of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.
