Remember this is not actual news, just speculation. Pictures of Sun Ye of the Wonder Girls and Korean swimmer Park Tae Hwan sporting similar rings has led to fierce speculation among netizens that they could be a dating couple.
Netizens have managed to piece together photos of Sun Ye and Park Tae Hwan sporting rings that looked similar and using that as evidence, deduced that maybe the two of them are dating each other. The title of Sun Ye’s cyworld writes “Eight months?” which one speculates to be that they have been together for eight months already. There was also a period of time where they were known as “Micky Mouse” (Tae Hwan) and “Minnie Mouse” (Sun Ye) as they conversed with visitors to their blogs using those names. The background music on Tae Hwan’s Cyworld minihompy was the song that Sun Ye sang with JYP, ” Daenaje Han Ibyul”. This led to more speculation that this could actually be true.
But on the morning of January 3rd, their internet names of Mickey and Minnie Mouse was nowhere to be found on their minihompies while the song was no longer part of Tae Hwan’s minihompy background music.
Min Sun Ye and Park Tae Hwan were both on a variety show in May 2006 and things like “they went to the same church” was revealed on the program. When everyone started to suspect that there could be a possible romance between them, they would just express, “We are just attending the same church program, we are just good friends.”
Some netizens have expressed that after careful in-depth analysis of the photos of them sporting the rings, the rings color and design aren’t the same and thus debunking the speculation that they are a dating couple.
With regards to this, a JYPE spokesperson replied, “Not sure. But according to what I know, Park Tae Hwan is not only on good relations with the Wonder Girls but with Park Jin Young as well. There’s absoutely no truth in this.”
Park Tae Hwan is currently in Australia preparing for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and his father has denied this speculation. He said, “They are just people of the same age who met a few times during church and they don’t even have time to meet each other because of their busy schedules. He (Tae Hwan) is still a high school student and all these unnecessary rumours will affect his performance in the pool, so I hope that everyone would stop speculating.”
Park Tae Hwan was previously linked to a scandal with Dana from Cheon Sang Ji Hee The Grace. What’s your take on Park Tae Hwan and Sun Ye being together?
