South Korean singer and actress Seolhyun admitted she has feelings for Descendants of the Sun star Song Joong-ki. The 21-year-old member of girl group AOA has openly confessed her emotions for the 30-year-old actor.
"Song Joong-ki is my ideal type. I saw him at the parking lot a few minutes ago, but I didn't say hello because he seemed to be too busy at the time," she told reporters at Style Icon Asia awards ceremony.
Recently reports emerged that Joong-ki is romantically involved with co-star Song Hye-kyo. However, the 34-year-old actress instantly rubbished dating reports.
The statement from Joong-ki's agency, UAA Korea read: "Song Joong-ki is her good colleague with whom she's done a TV series together."
"She was on vacation in New York and Song Joong Ki happened to be there. They had a meal with other friends, and we cannot believe it has turned into a scandal. There is no need for us to consider it seriously. We will take it as a sign of fans' interests. That story has been going around for a long time now. Media outlets have asked us about it and we have told them many times that it is not true," the letter read.
Meanwhile, Joong-ki had previously talked about the KBS TV drama series' instant success, which premiered on 24 February. He told reporters at Hyundai Motorstudio in southern Seoul: "I think people like the idea of a doctor dating a soldier because it's different. Doctors have appeared in many dramas, but a soldier is a relatively uncommon occupation on TV. I think people appreciate that."
In the hit show, Joong Ki plays the lead role as Captain Yoo Shi Jin, and Hye Kyo reprises the role of doctor named Kang Mo-Yeon. Descendants of the Sun airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 22:00 (Korean Time).
