Actors Song Joong-ki and Kim Tae-ri from South Korea have addressed speculations that they are dating by denying it in a joint statement from their respective agencies. Several Korean media outlets, including Soompi, claim that on Friday, October 21, an alleged photo of the two walking together through the streets of Paris sparked online dating speculations.
The arm-linked duo, even though both figures are facing away from the camera, was thought to be Joong-ki and Tae-ri. After working together on the South Korean movie Space Sweepers in 2021, the two actors became close friends and internet forums have been speculating about whether they might date ever since.
Joong-ki is most known for his roles in the Korean television series Running Man and Sungkyunkwan Scandal. He established himself as one of the top Korean actors known abroad for his roles in TV and movies by winning numerous honors throughout his career. Prior to their 2019 divorce, he was formerly married to the actress Song Hye-kyo.
Tae-ri is well-known for her roles in the movies The Handmaiden and Mr. Sunshine on television. Her performance in the program Twenty-Five, Twenty-One earned her the Best Actress Award at the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards, which were awarded on May 6, 2022.
