This might seem strange, but South Korean actor Lee Min-ho is now headlined as one of the most eligible suitors for Taylor Swift.
According to a report by Channel News Asia, the Boys Over Flowers actor is now being paired with American singer Taylor Swift after the latter was reportedly dumped by Hollywood A-lister Tom Hiddleston.
“Seems like the Korean hunk is exactly what the American pop princess needs right now,” the report said.
It all started last week when news of the Swift-Hiddleston breakup hit the global headlines. There were two versions of the breakup. Earlier reports circulated on the social media platforms that Taylor Swift dumped Tom Hiddleston.
According to a report from Heat Street, despite claims Tom was “humiliated” after being dumped by the singer, Hiddleston’s friends said that it was in fact he who decided to dump Taylor Swift as he had grown “tired of her.”
According to sources, Tom Hiddleston is fickle with girlfriends and he dumps them all after his so-called “three-month rule.”
According to sources, a theater producer, who worked with Tom Hiddleston on Coriolanus, emphasized that the singer did not dump Tom Hiddleston.
“The reports are wide of the mark and come as news to all Tom’s friends. He grew tired of Taylor, it wasn’t the other way round.”
“Tom drifted from her and it had nothing to do with her being put off by the publicity. It’s more to do with the fact he’s a commitment-phobe who gets bored very easily,” he said.
Friends of Taylor Swift have a different tale to tell. They said that both she and the Hollywood star tried to work out their issues in mid-August when they met at her Rhode Island home. The couple want to “talk” after struggling to maintain a long-distance relationship.
When Tom Hiddleston earlier got into a relationship with Taylor Swift, the latter had her doubts, for she did get the impression that Tom Hiddleston was in it because he loved the limelight. It is worth mentioning that Hiddleston was vying for the role of the next James Bond.
As for Lee Min-ho, he has been on his best behavior. The 29-year-old heartthrob was appointed the brand ambassador for Coca-Cola’s canned coffee brand, Georgia Gotica, and will appear in the commercials in October. His recent movie Bounty Hunters was a massive hit. He is currently in Spain shooting for Legend Of the Blue Sea, alongside actress Jun Ji-hyun.
As far as his personal life is concerned, rumor has it that he has been going on and off with his singer-actor girlfriend Bae Suzy.
Although Lee Min-ho and Bae Suzy have denied that the breakup incident is untrue, rumors of the split started circulating on social media and has not died down since.
According to a recent report by Soompi, an industry insider said that both Lee Min-ho and Bae Suzy are aware of the breakup rumors and have decided to ignore that which is not true.
“The two know about the suspicions that they have broken up. But they are just laughing it off,” a source told Soompi.
Nonetheless, when Lee Min-ho celebrated his birthday in June, there was no reference to Bae Suzy being a part of his celebrations nor was there any public social media post from Bae Suzy to Lee Min-ho on his big day. Although this in no way proves that the couple has split, fans are speculating that all is not well with this celebrity couple.
If all is not well between Lee-Min-ho and Bae Suzy, it’s time for the couple to breakup and move on. Perhaps if Taylor Swift is interested, Lee Min-ho does stand a chance.
