Park Seo Joon Speaks Up About Dating Rumors With Park Min Young

“I know people who want to believe that I’m in a relationship with her will believe only that.”

In his latest interview, actor Park Seo Joon pointed out that the dating rumors about actress Park Min Young and he are not true and cleared up the suspicions presented by the viewers.


With confidence, Park Seo Joon explained the “evidence” that supposedly prove relationship between the co-stars of What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim is simply false.

“I ended up reading a lot of the rumors because they are about me, after all. It seemed like a lot of the “evidence” have been forced together.

I read that Park Min Young and I went on a trip together and that we have “couple’s items”… I thought for a second I should share my departure and arrival dates on my plane tickets. But then again, it’s not like I did anything wrong. Why should I have to go to such extremes, right?

As for the overlapping fashion items, people who follow fashion trends know – those items were popular at the time. I have some products in all its colors.

If it means I’m dating someone because we share the same taste in fashion, I guess that means I could be dating Justin Bieber too.”

Regarding the rumor that Park Seo Joon “requested” Park Min Young to be his co-star, the actor emphasized that such a thing isn’t even possible.

“It’s literally impossible. I didn’t pay to have this drama produced. Casting is strictly up to the director. I have zero power over what’s done…

I know people are saying I recommended Park Min Young, but I’m not nearly as important to have that kind of power.”

Park Seo Joon also confirmed that his baseball uniform number has nothing to do with Park Min Young’s birthday.

“I think the baseball uniform number suspicion was kind of convincing too. I used to be #28. That’s because I wanted to be #27, but that number was taken. I went for the next best – which was #28.

Then, I ended up changing the number when the team decided to get brand new uniforms. If you’re in to MLB, you’ll know. #34 players are often their teams’ aces, or right-handed fire ballers. A lot of masculine, tough guy type players wear #34 too. That’s why I decided to go with that number.

It’s not because Park Min Young’s birthday is March 4th, but that’s how that got played out.”

Park Seo Joon concluded, “I actually thought a lot about whether I should speak up like this to clarify the dating rumors.”

“I know that the people who want to believe that I’m in a relationship with her will believe only that. To those people, whatever I say will only sound like excuses to deny the rumor. So really, I didn’t want to bother by explaining everything point by point like this.

But, I also realized there are people who do want to know and who are curious. And I have nothing to hide. That’s why I decided to talk about this.”

Although they may not be dating now, Park Seo Joon left a slight glimmer of hope when the interview asked if there really is no real-life chemistry between him and Park Min Young!

“While we’re shooting, we have to be acting two characters who are in love. So for me, I was focusing on the fact that she is beautiful and attractive whenever we were filming. So yes, I naturally grew interested in her as a person.

And I guess you never know what could happen with life. So if you ask me about the potential, I would have to answer I don’t know. Wouldn’t it be one of those things that only time can tell?”
