Does Kim Soo-Hyun Have a Wife or Girlfriend?

Kim Soo-Hyun does not have a wife as he is not married. However, several sources have peddled the rumor that the Korean actor and model is currently in a romantic relationship with his girlfriend, actress Seo Ye-Ji, who is his co-star in the drama series It’s Okay Not To Be Okay (2020).

Kim and Seo have painstakingly denied this assertion to the media and the general public even though their very strong on-screen chemistry seemed to suggest that those peddling the rumor might have their fingers on the pulse of something credible.

Kim Soo-Hyun Is Not Married

Kim Soo-Hyun has yet to officially tie the knot with any woman. In 2012, the 36-year-old Korean star revealed that he sees himself getting married at the age of 36 or 37. At the time, he was only 24 years old and was still trying to find his feet in the world of entertainment.

He has yet to revisit the issue of marriage since he made that statement. However, if he still has intentions of fulfilling that goal, then he still has about three years more to get to it. For now, though, what is certain is that Kim Soo-Hyun is not married.

Is Seo Ye-Ji Kim Soo-Hyun’s Girlfriend? 

Several sources have speculated that Kim Soo-Hyun is in a committed romantic relationship with Korean actress Seo Ye-Ji. Even though parties have repeatedly debunked the rumors, more than a few people believe it is just a ploy by the alleged couple to keep their relationship off the radar.

Kim and Seo became acquainted with each other while filming the popular K-drama, It’s Okay Not To Be Okay. In the drama, the actor and Ye-Ji are each other’s on-screen love interest. The near-perfect execution of their roles was significantly aided by the fact that they had an uncanny chemistry that seemed to transcend the roles they were both portraying.

This chemistry was also quite visible to fans and viewers of the drama who almost immediately began exploring and pushing the narrative that there might be more to Kim and Seo’s relationship than what was being shown on screen. The narrative is further advanced by the fact that Kim and Seo are quite close away from the camera too. They are often spotted together at social events and are quite vocal in their support for each other’s endeavors.

Seo Ye-Ji’s Acting Career Has Been Marred By Scandals

Seo Ye-Ji’s acting career has seen her star in numerous movies and television dramas, including It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, Save Me, and Lawless Lawyer. She was born on April 6, 1990, in Seoul, South Korea, and graduated from Complutense University of Madrid in Spain. However, her career has been marred by several scandals and controversies.

One of the most significant scandals Seo Ye-Ji has faced is her alleged involvement in bullying behavior during middle school. Netizens have accused her of bullying and extorting them during that period, with photos from that time resurfacing. Seo’s agency denies these accusations.

Additionally, there are claims that Seo fabricated her educational background, saying she studied abroad in Spain when she didn’t. Seo’s agency confirms that she was admitted to a university in Madrid but was unable to attend due to her career.

Moreover, Seo has been accused of mistreating staff members on the set of the K-drama, It’s Okay to Not Be Okay. An anonymous staff member claimed that Seo verbally abused them. However, Seo’s agency denies these allegations.

Another significant scandal involved her romantic relationship with Kim Jung-Hyun, a South Korean actor. Leaked text messages from 2018 revealed that Seo was controlling and caused Kim Jung-Hyun’s bad behavior on the set of a drama. She instructed him to avoid any physical contact and made him adjust the script to remove romantic scenes.

This led to criticisms and tears from co-star Seohyun. Both Seo Ye-ji and Kim Jung-hyun have faced backlash, with Seo Ye-ji being dropped from endorsements and projects, including the K-drama, Island. Kim Jung-Hyun has apologized for his behavior on the set and is said to be suffering from mental health issues and depression.

The speculation that Seo Ye-Ji is romantically attached to Korean actor, Kim Soo-Hyun has no concrete evidence to support the claim. The two have worked together on several projects, including It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, where they portrayed a couple. However, their on-screen chemistry does not necessarily imply a real-life relationship.

Seo Ye-Ji’s career has been impacted by the scandals and controversies that have surrounded her. She has been dropped from endorsements and projects, and her reputation has been tarnished. However, it remains to be seen whether she can make a comeback in the entertainment industry.

Other Girlfriends Kim Soo-Hyun Has Been Romantically Linked To

The handsome actor has been linked to celebrities like Nana, and IU. Let’s explore these links in detail.


Nana, whose real name is Im Jin-ah, is a South Korean singer, actress, and model. She gained popularity as a member of the girl group After School and its sub-unit Orange Caramel. Nana’s talents extend beyond music, as she has successfully ventured into acting, appearing in various television dramas and films. As for her romantic links to Kim Soo-Hyun, there is no concrete evidence to suggest that they were romantically involved.

The rumors about them being together started in 2014 when the actor stated that the singer was his ideal type. However, those rumors were quashed after she stated categorically that nothing was going on between her and the actor.


South Korean actress, IU is another celebrity who has been romantically linked to Kim Soo-Hyun in the past. The pair have been friends since 2011, and their friendship has also seen them work together on several projects including Dream High (2011), The Producers (2015), Ending Scene (2017), and Hotel Del Luna (2019).

Their collaboration and friendship have often led to speculations that they might be more than friends but nothing has ever come of these speculations.
