Stories behind Suzy and Lee Dong Wook's romantic relationship
On March 9, both Suzy and Lee Dong Wook admitted to being in a romantic relationship with each other. It certainly was a surprising news, huh?
By the way, the fact that the two top stars are lovers was not the only surprising thing. They admitted they're dating only about an hour after the release of the initial report about their romantic relationship.
When k-pop idol stars are embroiled in a dating scandal, they usually deny it, saying “We’re just close friends.” Of course, it sometimes is true, but a fair number of k-pop stars say so just because they want to walk away from the situation. There are few idol stars who readily admit that they’re dating somebody because it could have a negative effect on their careers.
That’s why Korean media outlets such as Dispatch try to secure solid evidences including photos and videos. Once media outlets seize photos or videos as real evidence, they usually contact k-pop agencies for confirmation. And after getting a phone call from a media out, what k-pop agency does first is to ask its idol star if it’s true that he or she is dating someone because even k-pop agencies do not know everything about their idol stars’ private lives. After that, people in the agency begin to debate whether they should admit their idol star’s romantic relationship with somebody. In this stage, they take a variety of things into consideration, including whom their idol dates, how solid the media outlet’s evidence is, etc.
However, yeah, Suzy and Lee Dong Wook readily admitted their romantic relationship. Do you know why? Here are stories behind the romantic relationship between the two top stars.
Lee Dong Wook is 13 years older than Suzy, but the two could become close with each other because both of them were members of "Garosu-gil club". It is a social meeting, and they hung around with their friends. Garosu-gil is the most hip and trendiest area in Seoul. When you stroll around the Garosu-gil in Apgujeong, you will be delighted by the many artistic designs, unique jewelry vendors , outdoor cafes and people dressed in ready-to-go party attire.
Anyway, Suzy and Lee Dong Wook, who have known each other as members of "Garosu-gil club", recently started dating.
Then, how do you think TV Report, the Korean media outlet which reported about the two stars' romantic relationship for the first time, got to know their relationship? TV Report is Dispatch's sister company. Well, you know what I mean. There is a big possibility that Dispatch had taken photos of Suzy and Lee Dong Wook and gave the information to TV Report.
So, in this situation, Suzy and Lee Dong Wook, who had enjoyed their date in an open place, admitted their romantic relationship even though TV Report didn't present any real evidences for it because they were quite certain that Dispatch had taken photos of them.
And one more thing. Lee Dong Wook is a manly and straightforward person. (The interesting is that he has something in common with Lee Minho in character) In real life, he has a very clear view, and he doesn't like to lie to hide something. So, it seems the handsome actor didn't want to lie about his lovely girlfriend.
