As of now, it is rumoured that he has been dating YouTuber, Kim Soo Yeon (Xooos). Their respective agencies said that ‘it is difficult to confirm’ anything on the matter, leaving the fans guessing that the duo may or may not be dating.
A few years back, precisely in 2018, the handsome hunk, Park Seo Joon, was rumoured to be romantically linked with his What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim co-star, Park Min Young, as per a report by KBIZoom. This K-drama was an instant hit among the audience, and fans started shipping for the reel couple to become a real-life one as well. Fans of K-dramas tend to imagine a romantic relationship between the co-stars, influenced by the fairytale romances portrayed on screen. This was the case with Park Seo Joon and Park Min Young as well. Rumours circulated that the two were secretly dating and meeting up overseas. Some netizens even noticed that they were wearing matching outfits.
The immense success of the drama significantly contributed to Park Seo Joon's popularity not only in South Korea but also internationally. As a result, he became the first choice for many brands, and soon Park Seo Joon landed a big deal of 15 advertisements. But this news sparked discussion among Korean netizens, and the beloved celebrity became a target of trolls.
Park Seo Joon was accused of prioritising financial gain over his relationship, as he reportedly was about to spend 100 days each year on advertisement shoots. Though it was only rumoured that he was in a three-year relationship with actress, Park Min Young following their work together on What's Wrong with Secretary Kim, unfortunately, he continued to face criticisms from the public.
There was a belief back in 2018 among some netizens that Park Seo Joon may be deceiving his fans and the public by denying evidence of a romantic relationship. The theory was that he was driven by the financial gain from his advertising contracts and was, therefore, trying to conceal the truth. As a result, Park Seo Joon received significant backlash from his fans, and his public image suffered for the same.
To stop all the rumours and criticisms once and for all, Park Seo Joon finally reacted to all the speculations that were going on in the media to set the record straight. In an interview with Hankook Ilbo, Seo Joon shared that overlapping fashion doesn’t mean that the two people are dating. He said:
“As for the overlapping fashion items, people who follow fashion trends know – those items were popular at the time. I have some products in all its colours. If it means I’m dating someone because we share the same taste in fashion, I guess that means I could be dating Justin Bieber, too.”
