On December 26, netizens were shocked when actor Song Joong Ki confirmed that he was in a relationship.
Korean netizens believe that, although the company revealed that the actor was dating a non-celebrity, many believe his girlfriend is actually British actress Katy Louise Saunders.
Amidst the news, a clip from September has gained attention after it seemed like Song Joong Ki was hinting at his relationship for months.
In September, Song Joong Ki attended the 2022 APAN Star Awards, and, as expected, the actor looked absolutely flawless in his dapper suit as he walked the red carpet.
During the show, Song Joong Ki won the Grand Prize at the event.
Like all winners, Song Joong Ki gave a heartwarming speech where he thanked all those around him, sharing his gratitude for receiving such a huge award.
Toward the end of the speech, Song Joong Ki had a few final people to thank as he explained, “and my beloved Katy, Naleemla, Maya, and Antes, even these precious friends, I really love you all so much.”
Of course, most Song Joong Ki fans knew that when he was speaking about Nalla, he was actually thanking his beautiful dog…
One name that was passed by was his mention of “Katy.”
After the news and speculations that Song Joong Ki is dating actress Katy Louise Saunders, many believe that he was subtly hinting at his relationship back in September. According to reports, along with mentioning Katy, Maya and Antes are actually the actress’s pets.
Of course, when the clip resurfaced, netizens loved how unbothered Song Joong Ki was, considering that he wasn’t even trying to hide his relationship months before the announcement. While many would try and hide the relationship, Song Joong Ki has shown how secure he is.
