It was recently confirmed that Lee Jin Wook and Gong Hyo Jin have broken up after dating for 5 months. Break-ups are an unfortunate occasion, and I am sad to hear that they’ve ended their relationship since I love them both. I do have this inkling, though, that they probably broke up a while back but waited for It’s Okay, That’s Love to finish airing before announcing the news. But when you start dating because of your “mutual love of fashion”…Regardless, I wish them both well; in love, work and life! (source: allkpop)
HOWEVER….since the end of It’s Okay, That’s Love, I have been living in Delulu Land, so deep down, I’m a bit, dare I say, happy about this news. I know, I’m a terrible person to be rejoicing in someone else’s pain but if you join me, I’ll give you some cookies, and no, not rotten ones…
As a result of us delulu shippers, Jo In Sung’s company felt a need to release the following statement:
Now I feel terrible that the company even had to issue this statement, so my delulu self will now go back and hide in the cave. I just have to remind myself that at the moment, Jo In Sung is a taken man, so out of respect for his personal life and his very cool girlfriend, Kim Min Hee, I shouldn’t be too delusional. Although I would love to see Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin as a couple in real life when their timing is right, there are just no guarantees about the future. If only they worked together earlier…
Also if we think about this rationally, just think about how huge of a scandal it would become if Jo In Sung also broke up with Kim Min Hee and then got together with Gong Hyo Jin? There’s that “betrayal” factor attached, where Gong Hyo Jin and Kim Min Hee are good friends and dating a girlfriends’ ex is usually frowned upon. If their feelings are real and strong enough, they can say f*** it but that’s probably not going to happen, especially in a country where basically anything and everything is considered a “scandal”. Also, Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee do seem like a very cute couple. Now, I’m actually really super sad that Lee Jin Wook and Gong Hyo Jing broke up!!!! If Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin can’t be together, I would like it if Gong Hyo Jin were still with Lee Jin Wook. Ah well, it was sweet while it lasted and they must have had their own reasons for separating.
I actually find it a bit amusing that the news of the break-up was released as Gong Hyo Jin is vacationing in Thailand with the cast and crew of It’s Okay, That’s Love. I just hope all of us delusional shippers haven’t made it awkward between Jo In Sung and Gong Hyo Jin! I believe they are more mature and professional than to care about this kind of delulu talk online though.
