Who is Song Ji-hyo’s Boyfriend? Lovelife about Song Ji-hyo(Cheon Seong-im)

Who is Song Ji-hyo’s boyfriend now?

I’ll introduce her lover and her lovelife.


Cheon Seong-im (born 15 August 1981), better known by her stage name Song Ji-hyo, is a South Korean actress, television presenter and model.

She first made her acting debut in Wishing Stairs (2003), one of the films in the Whispering Corridors film series.

Song gained international fame for being the only female member of the popular Korean variety show Running Man, which made her popularity rise across Asia.

Her frank, easy-going personality endeared her to many Korean and international fans.

Ex Boyfriend: Baek Chang Joo

Song Ji Hyo showed her affection towards her real life boyfriend, drawing the attention of the netizens.

The final episode of ‘Running Man’ of 2012 featured guest Choi Ji Woo getting punked by ‘Running Man’ members and it was received very well by the viewers.

On the episode Song Ji Hyo had earned a star by changing Choi Ji Woo’s name and as she was putting the star on her chest, her fingernails were shown from up close.

There alphabet letters written on her finger nails and the combined initials on both fingers clearly read ‘Back CJ’.

Somehow the netizens had caught this moment and many believe that it must be her boyfriend, Baek Chang Joo’s (CEO of C-Jes Entertainment) initials.

Song Ji Hyo Revealed Her Secret

Song Ji Hyo had admitted in February of 2012 that she had been dating Baek Chang Joo for 3 months at the time.

Song Ji Hyo drew lots of attention on this episode for not only the initials on her finger nails, but because of the reunion of ‘Monday Couple’ as well.

Yoo Jae Suk teased Song Ji Hyo and Gary that they now sit together as if that’s just the way should be and Song Ji Hyo had replied that it was Monday, so that there were no alternatives.

However, on July 2015, it was announced that they broke up and she was no longer be working for CjeS Entertainment, the company that her ex-boyfriend owns.

Although, after breaking up, the ex-couple did not completely erase each other from their lives. They still kept in touch but, of course, their relationship changed. The media said they communicated professionally, nothing else more.

They kept their manager-actor relationship, which is actually a great mature way to handle a breakup with a person in the same business.

CjeS Entertainment, however, did not completely break their support for Song Ji Hyo.

One representative stated that they will continue supporting Song Ji Hyo on her future endeavour, regardless of what happened between their CEO and their adored employee.

Rumoured Boyfriend: Gary

In July 2015, the same month when Song broke up with Joo, there were reports regarding the rumors between Song and Gary.

They are known as the ‘Monday Couple’ in the TV Show ‘Running Man’, and media reported that they have been caught hugging each other affectionately in a group picture. The rumoured couple seems comfortable in each other’s arms.

Their shippers went totally crazy over this picture of them snugging up to each other, making more and more fans believe in their rumoured love.

This scandalous photo was taken at the after party of the staff members of SBS Entertainment. Some people say that they are just close friends that are comfortable enough to be that close to each other.

However, some people say that their bodies are too close and there must be something going on behind that affectionate hug.

Actually, this happened when Song Ji Hyo was still in CjeS Entertainment, and in an interview, Song’s agency denied and said the picture in question is one of the many photos taken in an event, where there were many other participants.

This, however, is unfortunate for Baek Chang Joo, Song’s ex-boyfriend. Naturally, who would not be affected by this love affair?

Rumoured Boyfriend: Chen Bolin

Chen Bolin, a hot Taiwanese actor, is paired up as a couple with Song Ji Hyo in a Chinese version of the Korean reality show called We Got Married. Fans started to ship them, which led to increasing popularity.

They are called as the “Orange Juice Couple”, which made Gary even more jealous because he never expected them to also have a couple name of their own.

The Orange Juice Couple were spotted hugging and close together in a photoshoot for Marie Claire magazine and Cosmobride magazine.

They were also captured kissing in Bali, which is still vague because fans are not sure if it is a candid photo or just them posing for a picture.

Marriage Rumors with Kim Jong Kook

Singer Kim Jong Kook and actress Song Ji Hyo of “Running Man” have been swept up in dating rumors.

Recently, there’s been a rumor floating around online saying that they’re either dating or getting married soon. What is the truth behind this rumor?

The rumor started with an article titled, “Running Man’s Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo in love. ‘Marriage.’ They should be congratulated.” It turns out the article was made up of assumptions and opinions rather than facts and confirmations from Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo.

The article talked as if something had happened between the two celebrities, citing the fact that they were being overly friendly on SBS’s “Running Man.”

The writer treated the opinions of the onlookers as if they were facts coming from Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo themselves.

In conclusion, the article proved to be false. Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo are nothing more than fellow entertainers appearing side-by-side on “Running Man.”

Even so, the article is spreading online like wildfire as though it’s factual.

Ideal Type of Man

Actress Song Ji Hyo has chosen an unexpected male celebrity as her ideal man.

On March 27th, MBC’s “Section TV Entertainment” revealed an interview with Song Ji Hyo where the reporter held an ideal man world cup, consisting of all the men the actress worked with, in order to figure out her ideal type.

During the initial rounds, Song Ji Hyo chose unexpected figures, as she showed preference for Yoo Jae Suk over Song Joong Ki.

Furthermore, she also chose Song Il Gook over Im Chang Jung and Gary over Jo In Sung.

Additionally, during the final rounds, the actress had to choose between Yoo Jae Suk, Song Il Gook, and Gary.

Out of the three male figures, Song Ji Hyo surprised by choosing Gary as the winner.
