In the wake of the triumph of his latest K-drama, 'Marry My Husband,' South Korean actor Lee Yi-kyung finds himself under the spotlight not just for his on-screen love interest but for the swirling rumours about his real-life romantic status.
Appearing on Yoo Jae-suk's 'Hangout With Yoo,' the 35-year-old actor addressed the speculations surrounding his relationship, particularly with former Lovelyz member Mijoo. Yoo Jae-suk playfully teased Mijoo about her secretive relationship, dropping hints about knowing the identity of her mystery partner.
Speculation escalated, connecting Mijoo's attendance at church with her potential romantic interest, with some fingers pointing at Lee Yi-kyung. However, the actor dispelled these rumours with a touch of humour, stating, "She goes to church, and I go to the temple. I've bowed 108 times." This candid response humorously clarified that there is no romantic involvement between them.
This isn't the first time Lee Yi-kyung and Mijoo have been at the centre of such rumours. Their onstage chemistry during the performance of 'Trouble Maker' at the 2022 MBC Entertainment Awards had sparked speculation. However, as Lee Yi-kyung accepted the Popularity Award on the same stage, he emphasized their strong friendship. He stated, "I prefer taking care of Mijoo rather than dating her, even if she is the last girl on Earth."
The talented actor, enjoying the success of 'Marry My Husband,' not only debunked baseless rumours but also shed light on the depth of his bond with Mijoo. As fans celebrate his on-screen achievements, Lee Yi-kyung maintains a lighthearted approach to the off-screen speculations, making it clear that friendship triumphs over unfounded romance rumours.
