Earlier this month, Chinese portal Sina published a story that South Korean actor Kim Soo-hyun and former Wonder Girls member An So-hee are ready to enter the wedlocks this year after secretly dating for quite some time. The report stated: "Sohee signed an exclusive contract with KeyEast through Kim Soo Hyun's introduction in September of 2015. KeyEast is strongly denying these reports."

However, it looks like the news has not gone well with the stars. Both have denied the rumours and clarified that they are neither dating nor planning to get married. Kim's agency Keyeast Co has issued a statement denying the same. "The Chinese report saying Kim Soo Hyun and Sohee will be getting married in late April is false. It's not worthy of a response. When the news came out, we told the media outlet in question that it was false, and if they continue to report false news, we will respond with legal action." The duo wants the rumours to die down so that they can continue their focus on their respective careers, Korea Herald reported.

Interestingly, the two stars were involved in the same kind of scandal earlier in 2015. Then, reports surfaced that Kim and An were dating. Later, both the stars denied the rumours. Kim is known for his roles in "Dream High", "Moon Embracing the Sun", "My Love from the Star", and "The Producers". It is was his "My Love from the Star", that got him international fame and even became a top star in China. His recently work was Korean zombie blockbuster "Train to Busan."

An So-hee is a former member of the popular South Korean girl group Wonder Girls, which debuted under JYP Entertainment in 2007. Sohee makes her big screen debut alongside Lee Mi-sook and Kim Min-hee in the romantic comedy Hellcats, directed by Kwon Chil-in of Singles.
