If you’re like me who seldom runs but watch Running Man instead, you’d know Lee Kwang Soo.
The 33-year-old South Korean, who became a sensation after starring in SBS’s Running Man since 2010, played a role as an unlucky member, and is well-loved not just in Korea but all over the world, too: during his Running Man tour, other members were shocked at his popularity in various regions of Asia, including Singapore.
And he’s also the one who made the melodramatic song “Saint Agnes and the Burning Train” funny.
If you somehow can’t remember him, this song would jog your memory instantaneously:
Unlucky in Games & Love
According to the producers of Running Man, the members were told to exaggerate their real-life personality on screen, and since luck can’t be exaggerated, Lee Kwang Soo is often teased for his lack of love luck instead.
That, despite him looking tall and handsome, and of course, rich.
In the last eight years, members have been laughing at his lack of love life; well, he now finally has the last laugh.
Because it’s now official: our favourite Giraffe is now dating a beautiful 24-year-old actress / singer.
Meet Lee Sun-bin.
Lee Sun-bin, A Rising Star That Eventually Became a Real Star
I won’t blame you if you’ve not heard of her: the 24-year-old just propelled into stardom in the last two years.
Prior to that, she joined a K-pop girl group, JQT, in 2011, but the group was disbanded the following year—she was therefore a K-pop singer for less than four months.
She then became an acting trainee and starred in several commercials and music videos. Soon after, she got several supporting roles but only got noticed after a role in Squad 38, which also starred Train to Busan’s Ma Dong-seok.
This year, her hard work finally got recognized as she was cast as a leading role in an action drama, Sketch, together with the forever-popular Rain.
If you’d have noticed, her story kind of resembled Lee Kwang Soo’s rise to popularity: he, too, took on supporting roles before becoming the Ah Ge of the industry.
Flirted on Running Man
If you’ve watched every Running Man episode, you’d know that these two lovebirds first met each other in an episode back in 2016. In the episode, both even expressed interest in each other, and Lee Kwang Soo claimed that they would get married the next week.
But as we all know, he said that to every girl in the show.
On the last day of 2018, Lee Kwang Soo’s agency, King Kong by Starship, finally confirmed the news. They said, “Lee Kwang Soo and Lee Sun Bin, who met on Running Man, have been dating for 5 months.”
Apparently, prior to the confirmation, the Giraffe has been bringing his new girlfriend to outings and telling others that she’s his girlfriend. I guess being a comedian, his friends didn’t really take him seriously.
Well, it seems like shipping is very possible in Korea showbiz. I mean, we have Song-Song couple and now Lee-Lee couple.
Kim Jong-Kook, we’re still waiting. Kim-Kim soon?
