Here's Why We're Convinced That Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo Are Dating for Real

These made us hopeful.

There have been a lot of rumors going around since the production days of Descendants of the Sun, that the show's stars, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo, are dating IRL. Reps for the two and even the actors themselves have already denied the rumors several times. But lately, reports only keep getting more frequent.

And because we're such big fans of DOTS and of these two, we rolled up our sleeves and gathered some proof that there could be a chance that they're really dating IRL. Hee hee.

  1. That time they were spotted together in New York.

An online post started going viral when the two actors were spotted getting dinner together in the Big Apple. Of course, it spread like wildfire and fans were feeling hopeful to see them together outside the TV series.

But the happiness didn't last long because Joong Ki and Hye Kyo's reps shut down the rumors immediately, saying that the two were there at the same time and they decided to go out together with some of their friends. In the press conference for DOTS, the actress also addressed the rumor and said that Joong Ki contacted him that's why they went out. (via

  1. The matching bracelets.

After the two were spotted in New York, fans started looking for evidence that the two are really going out and might actually be dating. The proof? Their matching bracelets on the show and those they were seen wearing on different occassions.


In an interview, Hye Kyo shut down these rumors about the ~*controversial*~ bracelet, saying that hers was just a hair tie. "I think the couple bracelets started [the dating rumors], but I think Song Joong Ki's stylist gave it to him," she said in a press conference for DOTS. "However, mine was just a hair tie. Somehow it became a bracelet at one point." (via

  1. They were spotted several times dining with friends. 

A day after the 52nd Baeksang Arts Awards, the two were again spotted out with their friends. This had fans thinking again that they might be dating. (via

  1. Their rumored trip to Bali, Indonesia together.

Just this week, a scandal errupted when MBC's Section TV broadcasted photos from Hye Kyo's private Instagram account of her vacation in Bali. In this episode, they revealed that they talked to locals to ask them whether the two were really there together. (via


Speaking with a source from the network, Soompi said that this was what they had to say about the issue: "We did not send any of our reporters to Bali. We contacted the locals to check facts and utilized the photos they sent us. We did not sneak into the place or secretly take photos. We apologize to anyone we made feel uncomfortable. From now on, we will make sure not to cross the line when covering news."

Reps for the two actors and the actors themselves haven't spoken up about this new rumor, and we're still waiting. Whether they're dating or not, we can't tell for sure yet. But whatever Joong Ki and Hye Kyo are to each other, we respect that and we'll be happy for them... It's just that we're definitely happier when we know they're dating for sure. Hee hee. ♥

Why our high school barkada is the best?

Remembering our high school years entails quite a lot reminiscing of the things we all been through when we were younger. You’ve experience a lot of new things during those 4 wonderful years and did most of them with the few people you consider your barkada. And through a series of all the lunch breaks you had together, the walks you took on the way home, and taking the same classes, you never thought you’d survive, you have made your life’s greatest friends.

Here are some of the reasons why your high school barkada is the best:

1. You figured out early teenage life together. The transition one have undergone from being a kid to a teenager wasn’t easy. For a moment you are not sure whether you should have played with your friends during recess or you should have just sat down and ate your food because you were too old for games. But whatever it is you chose to do, having friends who were as clueless as you make everything feel easier because you know, deep down, you’d figure things out eventually. You just need good company.

2. They were with you during your “jeje“ days. I bet you have pictures taken with Camera360 and Retrica. You also have pictures edited using Pizap with embarrassing captions and you somehow kept some of them so you could have something to post online during their birthdays.

3. They know all your exes. They will never EVER forget the name of an ex-boyfriend, an ex-fling, an ex-crush, and an almost you had. They will remind you of your every questionable love decision but you’ll just laugh anyway while saying “Past is past”.

4. They never judge you. They have welcomed you to their lives when you thought jelly shoes and checkered polos were the bomb! They were quick to have told your teachers that you were not feeling well so you could go home when you really just needed to poop. You tell them every embarrassing story you have and were fine with it.


5. You can always count on them. From the moment you first fell in love and the moment you first had your heart broken, they were with you. They were with you the moment you lost a parent and at moments when you thought you had nothing. Through every break-up and breakthrough, they were there to be your support system.

6. They are your family. Your high school friend’s family is your own family’s extension. Their parents are like your own. Don’t you feel a little kilig whenever your friend’s parents call you “anak”? And then eventually calling them mama and papa became so natural? I felt that, all the time.

7. They will always be your home. They are your place of refuge and security, the place who offers you their hands when you feel lost and the place you run to when you need saving. No matter how much time and distance separate you, they will be the one’s that you always long for and they are the one’s that you will always return to.
