As we know, the renowned actor Nam Joo-hyuk was dated early in 2016 by Lee Sung-Kyung. They started dating after working with Kim Bok-Joo on “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo”. They were close as friends at that time till the drama was over. YG Entertainment has verified their dating.

After filming the Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo in December 2016, they left for a romantic night. Dispatch says, when no drama filming was scheduled, the pair saw one another. The pair came to a church date in April 2017. Lee Sung-Kyung left her house and wore a wig and a golf cap and switched on a bucket hat when she purchased the church. The same kind of bucket hat and mask was put on by Nam Joo-hyuk to cover himself.
They eventually decided to part after dating for five months. “True, Lee Sung-Kyung and Nam Joo-hyuk have decided to stop,” YG Entertainment said to media outlets. The label reported that sunbae-hobbies will remain close.

Kim So-Hyun

Kim So-Hyun and Nam Joo Hyuk were in a relationship but only in the show as they both starred in K-drama “Who are You: School 2015”.
