Netizens are shipping actors Ahn Hyo Seop and Kim Sejeong (also romanized as Kim Se Jeong) more than ever.
SBS‘s hit K-Drama Business Proposal, based on the manhwa/webtoon of the same name, concluded back in April of 2022. Yet, it made a lasting impression on viewers.
The drama followed Shin Ha Ri (Kim Sejeong), who pretended to be her friend, Jin Young Seo (Seol In Ah), on a blind date. However, that blind date happened to be with her company’s CEO, Kang Tae Moo (Ahn Hyo Seop)! The real drama started when Tae Moo unexpectedly set his eyes on marrying Ha Ri, still thinking she was her friend.
Viewers fell in love with the lead couple due to their undeniable chemistry, which was so great offscreen that it influenced many onscreen moments.
Unfortunately, the K-Drama is surprisingly shorter than average, so we all wished for more from the two. Thankfully, Kim Sejeong and Ahn Hyo Seop reunited as Realfood brand ambassadors later in the year.
Now, the Business Proposal cast has reunited yet again at the 2022 SBS Drama Awards. As always, netizens were loving the interactions, especially between Kim Sejeong and Ahn Hyo Seop.
look how gentleman hyoseop is!! since sejeong lost her balance, look at the way he kept checking her while she's walking and he even cleared the way for sejeong so she can safely walk back to her sit. pic.twitter.com/HBZ5Zd8Ert

The two won the well-deserved “Best Couple Award” that evening. And, they sure did prove even in the moments there why they are. It was like Ha Ri and Tae Moo came to life.

That’s not all, though. After the ceremony ended, Kim Sejeong uploaded photos with Ahn Hyo Seop. She congratulated him on the wins and expressed a desire to see each other again.
Best Couple Award
Congratulations on your best acting award, oppa! It was fun being together! Let’s see each other again!
— Kim Sejeong’s Instagram caption
That wasn’t enough, though. Kim Sejeong also shared a post on Instagram Stories. She uploaded a self-written and composed song called “Between Chance and Fate.”
Hello. This is Kim Sejeong! This is a New Year’s gift for 2023 to all the fans that loved Business Proposal last year! I hope you think it’s cute!
— Kim Sejeong
Fans were excited by the photos with Ahn Hyo Seop so much so that some wondered if they were the next couple to be revealed. Recently, it was confirmed that Song Joong Ki is in a relationship with British actress Katy Louise Saunders. Likewise, IU and Lee Jong Suk confirmed that they are seeing each other.
sejeong: it's a pity that i couldn't take photos with mcs due to time constraints

Shortly after the posts, Kim Sejeong did delete the photos with Ahn Hyo Seop, though. Yet, this only raised fans’ suspicions more.
It's okay Sejeongah, if you are not ready for that recognition, first enjoy every secret moment you have with him. But you need to know that the world really loves and supports you both #Hyojeong

In a previous post, a man’s hand appeared to be putting a tiara on her head.
And a few days before that, she had posted a picture with Ahn Hyo Seop.
We just wish for their happiness, but it’s hard to deny their chemistry!
