Girl group KARA’s Gu Hara has denied rumors that she is dating model-turned-actor Lee Soo-hyuk.
On Tuesday, the Internet buzzed with rumor of Gu and Lee being in a romantic relationship after several fans spotted them walking together in Tokyo’s Harajuku shopping district on Monday afternoon.
An official with Gu’s agency DSP Media told TenAsia on Tuesday that they are just good friends and Gu, who is in Japan promoting KARA’s new single, was only showing Lee around since she is familiar with the area and he visited the country on vacation.
The official added that they have known each other for a long time and got closer after Gu shot the KARA’s upcoming cine-drama “Secret Love” with Lee’s close friend Kim Yeong-kwang.
The last relationships Gu and Lee went public with are boy band BEAST’s Yong Jun-hyung and actress Kim Min-hee, respectively.
