When it comes to the K-Drama industry, it seems like there are so many amazing actors and actresses coming onto the scene and making their mark by starring in some of the hottest K-Dramas around. Yet, it doesn’t mean netizens have forgotten about the veterans of the industry.

One of those is Lee Min Ho

After years of both Song Hye Kyo and Lee Min Ho starring in K-Dramas, yet never meeting (even despite rumors of their relationship), netizens have finally seen the two interacting… all the way in New York.

Both Song Hye Kyo and Lee Min Ho recently departed from Incheon Airport to make their way to New York for the city’s upcoming fashion week. As expected, they both shined with their visuals and personality when leaving.


Well, it seems like two of the biggest actors in the K-Drama industry finally met up when they sat next to each other at the Fendi show in New York. The two looked absolutely amazing at the show, channeling a more simplistic look.

Luckily, it seems like photographers and attendees from the same event didn’t want netizens to miss out on all the content. Throughout the event, pictures were shared of the duo, and it was a dream come true for fans to see the dubbed “Hallyu King and Queen” finally in one shot together.

Despite never having met in the past, or publically at least, they both looked at ease with each other, chatting naturally and interacting with the other celebrities attending the event.

Their interaction instantly took over the internet as the two veteran stars seemed to be trending everywhere. Netizens were shook at finally seeing the duo together after so long!

Even the Korean media was obsessed with the visual pairing of Song Hye Kyo and Lee Min Ho, urging the duo to work together in the future.

Yet, what made this interaction even more iconic was the fact that, in the past, Lee Min Ho expressed his desire to work with the actress. He even shared that if he had to pick his ideal type, it was Song Hye Kyo.

My ideal type is a girl older than me, who is mature in thought but still radiant and bright.

Although it was just a short moment in the duo’s long careers, hopefully, enough people went crazy over the interaction that writers and directors will be queuing up to finally cast them together in the same K-Drama or film. As two of the most iconic people in the Korean Entertainment industry, it was a historic moment and one that netizens won’t get over soon.
