The rumors that model-turned actress Lee Sung Kyung was dating Block B's Zico began in December and they are still circulating.
On January 27 the singer spoke about his dating rumors on the MBC program "Radio Star" when he was a guest with Super Junior's Ryeowook, Henry Lau and Jung Joon Young. The special program was titled "Crazy Idols." Zico was asked about the rumors, especially a photo that showed him and Lee sharing a meal. Was it a couple photo?
"There were other people there when we met and we never meant to take a picture of just the two of us," said Zico. "Someone cropped everyone else out and posted the picture."
They do have friends in common, so it's likely that they would dine together with their mutual friends. Lee is close to Winner's Kang Seung Yeon and he's a friend of Zico's. The three were photographed together at the Melon Awards.
The dating rumors began in December when another photo showed Lee and Zico at the Livart furniture store. They were shopping for furniture.
Although she later said they were there with another friend, some fans claimed to have evidence that the singer and actress were there alone. Were they moving in together, fans wondered? A serious dating rumor was born.
On January 5 Lee appeared on an episode of the tvN program Taxi with actor Seo Kang Joon. She tried to explain the rumors.
"I recently moved into my own place and went to Nonhyun Dong to look for furniture," said Lee. "I saw Zico and a friend at a restaurant, so I stopped by to say hi and they said they would come alone. The three of us looked at furniture together. An employee at the store posted a picture of us at the store online."
Was it possible that she would ever really date Zico?
Lee, who is known for being candid, told the emcee that it was not.
"We don't see each other that way," said Lee.
But he may feel differently. Zico was more optimistic about the possibility when he appeared on Radio Star.
"Lee Sung Kyung is very pretty and extremely talented. People said that I was the only one who could handle her overwhelming charms," he said.
Lee Sung Kyung has also been involved in dating rumors with her "It's Okay That's Love" co-star Lee Kwang Soo. They played a couple in the drama.
Lee currently appears in the drama "Cheese in the Trap," playing Seo Kang Joon's petulant, pampered sister.
