A new couple has emerged in the industry with actress Shin Se Kyung (21) and SHINee’s member Jonghyun (21) revealing that they are currently dating.

After finding that they both had interest in one another, they began their relationship about a month ago and has confirmed it through Sports Seoul. The two was revealed to have gotten together as often as they could despite their busy schedules, having street dates mainly around Shin Se Kyung’s apartment.

A scene of the two dating was discovered on October 20th after Shin Se Kyung came home from the conference for her movie, “Acoustic.” Jonghyun was waiting for her by her home as the two went on to walk the streets while listening to music. Jonghyun would even at times cover her from passerbys.

One associate that saw the two commented, “They can’t spend a lot of time together since they’re both busy. They communicate through texting or phone calls and usually just take walks in the early morning around their homes.”

Jonghyun has often named Shin Se Kyung as his ideal woman, while Shin Se Kyung chose SHINee as her favorite idol group on broadcast appearances. They have been officially dating for a month, their first meeting being in May at a concert both participated in. The two advanced on to friends, and now, significant others.

Another associate stated, “Meeting each other became a kind of opportunity to rest for them. They share a lot of the same hobbies and thoughts, which is why they were able to get so close so fast. The two became stars at a young age and have hardships that aren’t able to be expressed in words. Those points became a sort of strength to one another.”

The management agencies of the couple met with Sports Seoul on October 26th and confirmed the relationship.

Shin Se Kyung’s agency, Tree Actors, stated, “It’s been a month since they began meeting one another. They have good feelings for one another and currently getting to know each other.”

Jonghyun’s agency, SM Entertainment, also carefully stated, “We heard that they met each other through other people. Their relationship is just now beginning.”

All I can do is pray for the girl now..
and I still don't understand why SM confirmed it.(considering this is probably the first time in History)I know it's hard to deny, but how they sound, like it's normal for their artists to date. idk something's fishy if you ask me...

Se7en came out the closet, Shindong too, Tablo's married, YG has a baby and now Jong Hyun has a girlfriend.

I'm posting this here because AKP crashed and the traffic is still insane there.

Joe Jonas, Miley Cryus and Demi Lovato can date without (much) backlash, so why can't k-pop stars?

Shinee is losing fans, and Jong Hyun's fansites and cafes are closing down, as did many of Se7ens and other idols who are or will announce that they are dating. Being in love is the best thing in a person's life (ok so it's debatable but still!!) but for a celebrity it's the hardest. They need all the support they can get.

Thus I'm calling out to all the sensible fans, netizens and people out there, to get together and set up a fansite/petition/group, anything for that matter supporting celebrity/idol couples. If we can have yunjae and jongkey fansites and fanclubs then so should these real couples! If you truly love and support your idol or you wish them the best, I sincerely call out to you to join me in this.

I've never set up a fansit, joined a cafe or done anything of this sort in my life. I don't even know HOW to set up a website but I think we should so this, to show celebrities that there are people out there who will stand up for them and support them and most importantly, be happy for them.

So what do you say? ^-^

Reading the AKP articles about Shin Se Kyung is just horrible. They are blaming her for what , liking someone.
This is really stupid how netizens are reacting to this, trashing this poor girl just because she happens to date Jonghyun. Netizens are just crazy people and Shawols(who are against this) .

Examples of korean fan girls being inconsiderate( EX:)

Talk about immature and inconsiderate.

Regarding the question to SM on why they published this is mystery? Who knows..
Did they do this regards to make the couple pairing into public or is their a story behind this story. Sm is filled with many tricks , lets just see how they play first before any assumptions.

I just wanted to share this. It was a comment by b2stly2pm @

If you don't want to read all that, I'll try to make it simpler.
Basically, what that person was trying to point out was that the relationship between Jonghyun and Shin Se Kyung is fake.

She pointed out some reasons such as :
- SHINee is still only 2 years old, they’re not even allowed to have cyworlds, would they even be allowed to date?
- If they were really dating privately for real, then there will be more pictures on the internet from anonymous sources.
- This date happened in the middle of seoul which is BUSTLING with people at night. There would have been more people who uploaded pictures
- The real reason behind SM Ent confirming it, many are saying it's because they wanted to cover up the news that they dropped injunctions against JYJ.

Those that I listed are only some reasons which that user pointed out. Like I said, I just wanted to share this. Not trying to go against anyone, not an anti of either of them. I'm a shawol.

honestly i had a total breakdown when this happen . i'm STILL a shawol not like those fake ones who stop supporting shinee and left [we don't want fake shawols anyways] . but doesn't it seem fishy . i think it's fake . it looks kinda awkward in the pictures . can't tell if they are trying to hold hands ._. anyways i don't believe it . pictures don't make me accept voiced do . & if jonghyun truthfully says he is dating her then ok . but i won't be like their #1 fan who is supporting the couple maybe in the waay back supporting jongkey ? keke =)

i don't know why but they honestly don't look that good together [in my opinion] . but who knows .. if it's even real -_-

SM your confusing me .
