By Diana T. / 2017.04.18

Dating rumors linking Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk refuse to die down even after the two “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” stars firmly denied all of them.

In fact, shippers of the two were quick to plot their own speculations after Lee Sung Kyung posted an intriguing photo on Instagram just recently. According to Allkpop, the now-deleted post was taken during Coldplay’s concert in Korea over the weekend.

The update, which barely showed anything or anyone, was a blurry photo of a man’s legs which fans believed were Nam Joo Hyuk’s. The controversial photo was immediately taken down by Lee Sung Kyung after getting a surge of comments.

This is not the first time the two were mired in dating rumors. Although their come-of-age drama showed a rather lackluster performance until it wrapped up, Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk’s onscreen chemistry effectively won the hearts of their fans.

Previously, the “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” leading lady sparked dating controversy when she posted a photo of herself and Nam Joo Hyuk getting cozy on the set of the MBC drama.

However, the actor explained the reason why they were both cuddled up in the picture. “That [pose] was because the water was too cold and we had to survive,” Nam Joo Hyuk said, shutting down dating rumors.

Lee Sung Kyung, on the other hand, admitted she is fed up with controversies linking her to just anyone. In previous interviews, the model-turned-actress shared she feels more comfortable hanging out with her male friends.

But after playing the titular role in “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo,” the 26-year-old rising star has been cautious of her whereabouts especially when in Korea.

“There are so many rumors about me and male models and other men that I know,” Lee Sung Kyung said. “It feels like I’m dating hundreds of people at once. It’s absolutely exhausting.”
