A Look At Co-stars Who Have Dated in Real Life

Every time there is a sparkling, sizzling, scorching new onscreen pairing, drama viewers of various persuasions suddenly feel this uncontrollable urge to scream at the screen: Just Date Already! I’ve been there, done that. It’s often exhilarating, but mostly painful since the number of co-stars who ended up dating is a tiny fraction of the amount of acting couplings out there. And the number that end up walking down the line I can count on one hand.

Just for fun, I’ve compiled a list of various co-stars who have admitted to publicly dating in the last decade.

Co-stars who ended up publicly dating:

Lee Byung Hun and Song Hye Kyo in All In

Onscreen chemistry: middling (great from him, okay from her – likely due to the acting ability disparity between them since Lee Byung Hun is just a much much better actor than Song Hye Kyo when they filmed All In).

Offscreen chemistry: sizzling

Status: Broke up after 2 years.

Ji Sung and Lee Bo Young in Save the Last Dance for Me:

Onscreen chemistry: evident but couldn’t be developed because Lee Bo Young played the crazy insane psycho second female lead and not Ji Sung’s OTP (who was played by Eugene)

Offscreen chemistry: low-key

Status: Still going strong after 6 years.

Jang Dong Gun and Ko So Young in the movie Love Wind Love Song

Onscreen chemistry: N/A – didn’t watch the movie

Offscreen chemistry: mellow bliss

Status: married with baby!

Lee Chun Hee and Jeon Hye Jin in Smile, You

Onscreen chemistry: sweet

Offscreen chemistry: sizzling

Status: Married and expecting baby

Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin in The World They Live in

Onscreen chemistry: sizzling

Offscreen chemistry: very little since they rarely appeared in public together after they started dating.

Status: Wah wah wah after 2 years.

Lee Sang Yoon and Nam Sang Mi in Life is Beautiful

Onscreen chemistry: lovely

Offscreen chemistry: just as lovely

Status: Dating

Eugene and Ki Tae Young in Creating Destiny

Onscreen chemistry: perfect match

Offscreen chemistry: ditto as above

Status: Engaged to be married

Lee Seo Jin and Kim Jung Eun in Lovers

Onscreen chemistry: burned a hole through my screen

Offscreen chemistry: burned a hole through my screen, but likely fizzled because it was so intense

Status: Teary breakup after 2 years

Lee Dong Gun and Han Ji Hye in Sweet 18

Onscreen chemistry: SO. CUTE.

Offscreen chemistry: Just as cute, but didn’t seem like the type to last forever

Status: Amicable split after 2 years

Oh Man Seok and Jo Ahn in Everybody Cha Cha Cha/Jolly Widows

Onscreen chemistry: N/A, I didn’t watch the drama

Offscreen chemistry: Low-key and mature

Status: Still dating. Yay.

Jung Woo Sung and Lee Ji Ah in Athena: Goddess of War

Onscreen chemistry: Good, not great

Offscreen chemistry: *no comment*

Status: Got blown up within 2 months of dating by one of the biggest K-ent scandals ever.
