With the recent news of actor Song Joong Ki confirming his relationship with a “non-celebrity from England,” speculations that his girlfriend is actually British actress Katy Louise Saunders (also known as Kate Saunders) have started to pop up online.
These speculations first started due to Song Joong Ki’s Daesang acceptance speech at the APAN Star Awards. He thanked “Katy, Nalla, Maya, and Antes,” which is the name of the British actress, his dog’s, and her dogs’ names, according to a previous Facebook post.
Most recently, the two were spotted attending weddings together. Photos surfaced online of the couple attending the wedding of reportedly Song Joong Ki’s friend.
Online communities that posted about these speculations also received a positive response from K-Netizens.
- “So pretty. I wonder if he’s learning English so that he can communicate with his girlfriend. I read in an article that they met through an acquaintance.”
- “Song Joong Ki is really handsome…but I think he does have a certain preference when it comes to visuals..I think he likes classic beauty.”
- “He shouted out her name and her dogs during his acceptance speech? So sweet!”
- “Ah he did that during his speech? He really is showing off his relationship and not hiding it. She’s really pretty too.”
