For a long time viewers of the show "Running Man" have have shipped actress Song Ji Hyo with fellow cast member Gary of the hip hop due Leessang. They are so compatible and he so obviously likes her that they have been called the "Monday Couple." When he publicly confessed his love for her, fans hoped they would become a real-life couple.
Fortunetellers were consulted as to whether the two celebrities would make a good match. And they all said that Song Ji Hyo and Kang Gary were a match made in heaven.
But it has not convinced Song Ji Hyo who in real life is said to be dating a CEO named Baek Chang Ju.
When asked if he really had feelings for her, Gary was vague and said that he would never actually date her because he's inclined to mess up in relationships.
Still, fans kept shipping and hoping the actress would tire of her real life relationship and fall for Gary.
But given the chemistry recently displayed between Song Ji Hyo and her "Emergency Couple" co-star Choi Jin Hyuk, shippers are beginning to wonder if these two actors don't make a better match.
Drama staff members say that pictures of the couple taken behind the scenes show a lot of natural chemistry and camaraderie. They laugh and play together a lot, despite the hectic shooting schedules. In the drama, the actors play a couple that marry and then divorce while they are still young. They wind up working as interns in the same emergency room and fall for each other all over again. The two actors make a very convincing couple and it's easy to see they are genuinely fond of each other.
The show's producers decided to make things interesting by asking Gary to play a cameo in "Emergency Couple."
His performance as a cab driver made everyone laugh. But the cab driver did not enter into the show's love triangle. In that triangle, actor Lee Pil Mo rivals Choi Jin Hyuk for Song Ji Hyo's affections.
As "Emergency Couple" draws to a close, it's obvious that Lee Pil Mo's character does not stand a chance because Song Ji Hyo and Choi Jin Hyuk's characters were meant for each other.
Who do you think Song Ji Hyo makes the best onscreen couple with? Is she perfect for Gary? Or is she more appealing with co-star Choi Jin Hyuk?
