She also added, “I went to Japan with my best friend and older brother.”

Afterward, comments such as “I came back after watching the drama again”, “I want to congratulate them if they are actually a couple” were left on videos related to “Business Proposal”, and a video of the two winning Best Couple at the “2022 SBS Drama Awards” also resurfaced.

In addition, even with Se Jeong’s denial, netizens have shown over-immersive reactions, saying, “I still get excited” and “The two of them send signals with their eyes.”

Song Jaerim and Kim Soeun

Kim Soeun and Song Jaerim’s dating rumors have resurfaced just two months after their last speculation in June. The reason behind the rumors was their simultaneous upload of rose flower photos. Since the two were previously involved in dating rumors in late March, based on eyewitness accounts in Tokyo, Japan, they garnered even more attention this time.

Kim Soeun’s agency, ASENDEO, stated to Xports News, “It is true that the two are close friends. They occasionally keep in touch.”


Song Jaerim’s agency also expressed their stance, saying, “The dating rumors are not true. The rose flower photos were taken alone at their respective homes. They are just close friends.”

The two gained significant popularity as a virtual couple on the MBC variety show ‘We Got Married Season 4’ and were known as the “Sorim Couple.” In 2016, they acted as a married couple in the drama ‘Our Gap-soon.’ Afterwards, they reunited after eight years on the KBS 2TV variety show ‘Newlywed Diary’ and garnered attention once again.

Having worked together on multiple projects and faced dating rumors several times before, fans left supportive comments.

After being surrounded by dating rumors, the two immediately responded by stating that they are simply close senior-junior colleagues, and the incident was concluded as a happening. However, recent cases where relationships developed from working together, such as Im Jiyeon and Lee Dohyun, Lee Jangwoo and Cho Hyewon, and Hyun Bin and Son Yejin, have kept the public interested.
