"Lee Hyori and Lee Sang Soon will be getting married this September. They′re currently preparing for the marriage step by step," a source told ENewsWorld.
However, as soon as the news came out, their agencies denied it.
"It is true that Lee Hyori and Lee Sang Soon have spoken of marriage, but they never set a specific plan or decided on when it will happen," a rep from B2M Entertainment, Lee Hyori's agency, told ENewsWorld.
But a close friend of Lee Sang Soon confirmed the wedding.
"I asked Lee Sang Soon himself while we attended the wake for his label CEO's mother, and he confirmed to me that they were aiming to get married in September. They're planning to get married on September 1st in Jeju Island. It'll be a small marriage with invitation only to family and close friends," the close friend told Star News, according to Allkpop.
The two have been dating since 2011.
While the two are sorting out their plans, hallyu star Won Bin is dating actress Lee Na Young.
Korean news site Dispatch published photos of Won Bin and Lee Na Young at the actress' apartment building.
The two are under Eden9 Entertainment.
“After checking, we’re confirming that Won Bin and Lee Na Young are dating. There are reports that the couple started dating since last year, but it’s wrong. They became close as colleagues and naturally grew feelings for each other. They only officially started dating recently,” a representative from the agency told ENewsWorld.
Won Bin rose to fame via the Korean drama "Autumn in My Heart" in 2000 while Lee Na Young is an award-winning actress, appearing in dramas and films such as "Someone Special" and "Howling."
In 2010, Lee Na Young visited the Philippines to shoot the Korean action drama "Fugitive: Plan B" with pop star Rain and Daniel Henney.
