The cast of "It's Okay It's Love" has remained close since the series ended on September 11, 2014. The friendships that developed on set were evident when actors Jo In Sung and Lee Kwang Soo showed up recently to support their co-star actress Gong Hyo Jin. They attended the last performance of her play "Educating Rita."
The stage comedy written by British playwright Willy Russell was the first time that Gong Hyo Jin appeared in a play during her 15-year acting career. Jo In Sung and Lee Kwang Soo wanted to cheer her on.
On her official Weibo page, the actress posted a picture of herself on stage after the last performance ended.
"Thank you all for coming to my show," she wrote.
Gong Hyo Jin shared the role of Rita with actress Kang Hye Jung. The two appeared in the play beginning in early December. Gong began rehearsing for the play shortly after the drama "It's Okay, It's Love" ended. In that psychological drama Jo In Sung played a mystery novelist who is delusional as the result of a childhood trauma. He has a friend that does not really exist. Gong Hyo Jin played the psychiatrist who helps his character realize he has a problem. She also falls in love with him. Lee Kwang Soo played a man with Tourette's syndrome. His character shares a house with Gong Hyo Jin's character.
Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin made such a cinematic couple that their convincing chemistry started rumors.
Shortly after the drama ended, the Korean media outlet Dispatch reported that Jo In Sung, Gong Hyo Jin and Kim Ki Bang were spotted having a good time at a café in Itaewon. This prompted rumors that Jo In Sung had broken up with his girlfriend Kim Min Hee. Was he seeing Gong Hyo Jin?
His agency, IOK Company said that the rumors were not true and the cast was just celebrating the end of the drama.
"Jo In Sung, Gong Hyo Jin, Lee Sung Kyung and other actors from the SBS drama "It's Okay, It's Love" team are very close. On the night the photos were taken, they were all hanging out together," said an IOK representative.
But Jo In Sung did break up with Kim Min Hee, who he dated for over a year. He ended the relationship shortly after Gong Hyo Jin broke up with her boyfriend, actor Lee Jin Wook. But the two continue to deny dating rumors. Gong Hyo Jin and Jo In Sung's former girlfriend Kim Min Hee are longtime friends so they all knew each other before the drama began.
