Has Park Bo-Gum Found His Ideal Girlfriend Yet? A Look into His Dating Life
South Korean actors never fail to amaze their fans and followers. From their looks to their acting and modeling skills, South Korean actors are super versatile. One such actor is Park Bo-gum.
Bo-gum rose to prominence playing a psychopathic lawyer in Hello Monster and a genius Go player in Reply. He also played Joseon Crown Prince in Love in the Moonlight and a free-spirited man in Encounter.
He has a very successful career in the entertainment industry. He was the first actor on Forbes Korea to be on top of the Korea Power Celebrity list. His work is very well known to his fans, but very little information is known about his personal life.
While he makes his fan's heart flutter with a single look, people have various questions surrounding his love life. For example, people wonder if he is gay or if he has a girlfriend or a wife.
Here is everything we know about Bo-gum's relationships.
Park Bo-Gum's Ideal Partner
Bo-gum did an elaborate photo session and interview with Elle Korea in 2016. During the interview, Elle Korea used the official SNS account to collect questions from fans regarding Bo-gum.
Fans asked many questions, but a prominent one out of those was about his ideal partner. The actor had a pretty specific response to the question, as if he had thought about it before.
His ideal spouse would be a cross between a friend and a mother. Of course, not in an incestuous manner, but someone who made him feel as at ease as a friend and would look after him as if a mother would tender to a child.
It seems like Bo-gum has not found his ideal partner yet, but many rumors are surrounding him and other South Korean actresses.
List of Park Bo-Gum's Rumored Girlfriends
There is no information about whether Bo-gum actually had a girlfriend or if he is currently in a relationship. However, he has been linked with many actresses he has worked with.
Here is the list of Bo-Gum’s rumored girlfriends.
Jang Na Ra
In 2015, Jang Na Ra appeared alongside Bo-gum in the KBS drama I Remember You. However, the speculation of relationship and marriage started in early 2016, after the actor wore a ring during a fan signing session for Reply 1998.
During an interview, Bo-gum addressed the rumors, saying he was surprised by the buzz since none of it was true.
Kim Yoo Jung
Kim Yoo Jung is a South Korean actress and model who was allegedly dating Bo-gum. Both of them starred in the 2016 drama Moonlight Drawn By Clouds.
After working together, they became friends and even traveled to other countries together. The two were also pictured together in an airport.
Bo-gum's kind gesture was misunderstood as a romantic connection. So, the actress quickly debunked the allegations, saying she regarded him as a brother and that they were close friends, nothing else.
Red Velvet's Irene used to co-host a popular music show, Music Bank, with Bo-gum. People mistook their professional connections for a romantic relationship because they acted like a couple on the program.
Bo-gum stated that he was ready for a relationship, but neither made a formal remark about their romantic connections. However, Irene later addressed the speculations and said she knew nothing about the news.
Fans adored Girls Generation's Yoona and Bo-gum since they looked great together in Hyori's Bed & Breakfast. Since then, the pair had taken over social media with the buzz of their relationship.
But, once again, they were only rumors.
Recently, Bo-gum was linked with another actress, Song Hye-kyo. Following her divorce from Song Joong-ki, the news about the actress allegedly having extra-martial relationships surfaced.
According to the reports, the actress and Bo-gum had been having an affair while Hye-kyo was married to her ex-husband. Bo-gum and Hye-kyo worked together on Encounter, which fueled the rumors.
Apparently, their "inappropriate connection" was the catalyst for Hye-kyo's divorce. Because the allegations affected Bo-gum's image, his agency, Blossom Entertainment, issued a formal statement denying the reports.
