South Korean actress Song Hye-kyo will be celebrating her 35th birthday on Tuesday. Only time will tell if her special day is going to be a star-studded party or a private affair with Song Joong-ki.
Song Hye-kyo is not one to openly talk about her love life. However, every time she was seen with Song Joong-ki, her co-star from Descendants of the Sun, she couldn’t keep the smile off her face.
The heavily rumored romance has been denied by Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo. Nevertheless, there have been constant stream of rumors about the actors seeing each other. Even if Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo are not a couple, they do share a special bond. Therefore, it stands to reason that Song Joong-ki will do something special on Song Hye-kyo’s birthday.
In September, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo pulled a disappearing act during the actor’s 31st birthday. Interestingly, Song Hye-kyo, who is usually active on Instagram, did not post a birthday wish. Instead, there were photographs of some scenic locations, which led the fans to believe that the duo was probably spending time together.
The adorable Hallyu couple was last spotted at Song Hye-kyo’s fan meeting in Seoul last week. Fans went berserk when Song Joong-ki made a surprise appearance. They were both dressed in black, and this wasn’t the first time the duo sported matching attire. In the past, the actors were spotted wearing matching bracelets.
During the fan meet last Sunday, both stars looked into each other’s eyes and sang “Always,” the original soundtrack from Descendants of the Sun.
Now, fans are hoping that Song Hye-kyo will celebrate her birthday with Song Joong-ki, who played the romantic Captain Yoo Shi-jin in Descendants of the Sun.
Based on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram chatter, fans are convinced that South Korea’s favorite on-screen couple is an item, which gave birth to two new hashtags. The hashtags #SongSongCouple and #KiKyo have been trending on social media platforms for the past seven months (ever since the conclusion of the K-drama Descendants of the Sun). Several Facebook groups pairing these two stars have been dedicated to the duo. Who knows if love is in the air for these two?
Song Joong-ki’s clear message to the fans that he will respect the privacy of his girlfriend (if he had one) has further piqued fans’ curiosity. According to a report by Inquisitr, Song Joong-ki asserted that even if he were in a relationship, he will make sure he keeps it under wraps.
“I have no plans to go public if I get into a relationship. I will do my best to safeguard the privacy of the person I love and respect her feelings. I may also want to keep the [relationship] a secret,” said Song Joong-ki.
The pair has been spotted on several sneaky dates. A couple of months back, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo was seen hanging out in New York. And if fan reports are to be believed, a user on social media posted a photograph of a restaurant claiming that Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo were seen sharing a meal on Thursday. Although this photograph has gone viral, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo have not confirmed this. The pair often stated they’ve always been nothing more than friends.
According to a recent report by Inquisitr, Song Joong-ki said that both he and Song Hye-kyo are aware of the dating rumors. He added that he discusses these relationship updates by various news agencies with his Descendants of the Sun co-star and laughs about it.
“Song Hye-kyo and I are both aware of those rumors, and we are really enjoying them. We even talk about them during company dinners. I think that the viewers think that because of the overwhelming positive response that the drama has gotten,” actor Song Joong-ki said.
According to a report by Inquisitr, Song Hye-kyo’s brand reputation across Asia is growing by the day. Recently, she endorsed Dyson hair dryer. The commercial showed Song Hye-kyo flaunting her luscious locks. To cater to a Pan-Asia audience, the actress addressed them in four languages: English, Taiwanese, Korean, and Cantonese.
Fans and media speculate that Song Hye-kyo would land a larger-than-life role. Rumors are doing the rounds that she will end up in Hollywood.
