Update (5/19): Dan Ji has since confirmed that he was just a younger schoolmate, not a boyfriend.
Netizens are busy digging up information on Boys Over Flowers‘ top star, Lee Min Ho. The latest discovery is a 2003 magazine photo of him with Dan Ji. The magazine’s photo caption claims that the two are a [younger-guy/older-woman] couple.
Dan Ji (real name: Jang Mi Hee) is a VJ and actress, probably remembered best by kdrama fans for her role as Yoon Eun Hye’s [character’s] best friend in Goong. In 2007, both she and Lee Min Ho acted in the mini-series, I’m Sam. She has admitted to getting plastic surgery, which is apparent from the difference in the two pictures.
Lee Min Ho’s agency has not yet commented on the validity of the caption. While some netizens are claiming that the fact that he’s holding her purse for her must mean they were dating, others are arguing that the magazine may have wrongfully assumed that they were a couple.
