Song Ji Hyo is one of the only female stars to regularly appear as a fixed cast member on the myriad of Korean variety shows. As the only woman in the seven-member cast, the year-old actress is frequently at the center of dating rumors involving her "Running Man" co-stars. The latest claim to circle the internet involved the actress and Kim Jong Kook, who are popularly referred to by the on-screen couple name, SpartAce. Song has also been the center of dating rumors involving her co-star Gary, with whom she regularly appears as part of the "Monday Couple. Both Song and Gary have repeatedly denied the claims, with the LeeSang rapper providing a concise statement about their relationship in August , following photos that depicted them holding hands in a Chinese airport. He went on to explicate about the difficulties in being paired with the actress, particularly during times when he realized that she may be personally interested in an activity or subject. In February , the variety star confirmed her relationship with the C-JeS executive, after the pair was outed by an investigative report published by Dispatch.
Variety is secondary, it has always been since when has it not. To conclude my point for you, MC should be stopped, many reasons why it should yours don't hold that much, does MC affect her career as much as you assume, no, variety affects her acting career much much more.
Should she do better as an actress, yes, of course. It seems more interesting to me the fact that as busy as you so claim to be, of course humans slog their life out every day that you are making such a post. Actually my point is very simple, why make such a post with what seems to me a lack of understanding of your point of discussion.
Perhaps I gotten your point wrong then, cause it does sound clear to me in simple English this is what you mean: "Gary-the talented guy, build his foundation well, got into fame from Running Man, don't depend on MC as much as JiHyo" To me, it is a comparison between who depends on it more because their main career as you said, Gary being more successful in relative terms to you, that is where the comparison comes in their main career difference and why does it affect each other more.
No the support of KG being with whoever, or SJH being with whoever in a project doesn't seem to be as affected as you seem to find. JiHyo's problem has existed even way before Running Man, having liked her even before Frozen Flower not lying here, first liked her for a line she said in Goong and I can recite it literally when she was in the taxi with Shin whether you believe it or not it does not matter, but of cause her antagonist role in dramas led her to having antis something I recognize as wellI truly do believe that she has problems of her own that needs overcoming, does Monday Couple really play that much responsibility in her career, well no, not exactly, not as much as you assumed.
People are willing to accept her with others, provided that the script is good, as of now for her lead roles in dramas or movies, the script has not been as good as I would have hoped for. If now a good script were to be coming in, despite the fact that a guy other than KG acts as a male lead, would the audience be reluctant to accept it because of the "Oh no, KG is going to be heartbroken"-thingno, NO! Same goes, the fact that KG writes his own songs and all differs from JiHyo like what I have been saying, the difference of career, what now?
Is JiHyo going to write her own script next Yes! I know of actresses who writes scripts but different argument again? And I did not say RM fans are the one supporting KG's concert, it seems amusing to me how you seem all like KG fan but continuously doubt his abilities and popularity yet at the very same time you seem to speak as though of the very opposite in your main post contradicting seems to be your style. Fans can listen to songs without knowing the lyrics, go to a concert without being able to understand the language, but how many can survive through a movie not knowing the story cause they don't understand the language?
Support is reflected through different ways for both of them, and that is my point. She has not done a lot of dramas and movies as you have said assuming that is what you mean by "she has done more", a pity for me cause I do crave for more. The fact that you lack an understanding for the acting industry is what bothers me more.

Seemingly your way of support as well. Just simply look at say the example I have already brought up whether you read or not JaeJoong, famous definitely, fans plenty the only Korean songs I have with me are all sung by members of JYJ as wellbeing in the same movie as JiHyo if every single one of his fans were to just buy 1 single movie ticket, the box office would definitely have soared all the way to the top few, but is this your term of support, giving false impressions of a successful film despite the fact that it requires more in terms of storyline, that's supporting?
How is your idol every going to improve, what I want of her is to recognize her shortcomings and what to avoid in scripts, honing her ability as an actress and to develop from there on, not to give her the false impression that fans can go all the way out for her success and let her remain stagnant in her career. Your view on movies seems to be of a "ticket sales proportionate to fans" theory rather than script or storyline, just to tell youyour view on it is outdated, totally.
The difference is that going to concerts and movies are entirely different things all together anyway, you get to see your idol sing in front of you vs your idol on a big big screen, the entire feeling is different and I guess you should know that right? The point is to me variety is affecting her career, yes it is, and Monday Couple may despite add fuel to the fire, isn't doing as much as you assume it to be.
Kim Sooro, Park Ye Jin and others like them no matter how A class actress they are face difficulties after variety. Yoon Eun Hye got fame mainly through Goong in X-Men was before that, noting that X-Men is a different genre of variety and if RM did not bring up YEH in RM, gosh, how many people still care about it at all ya there are some devoteesthe pairing doesn't affect her position in acting as well.
That is why famous actresses and actors don't tend to I said tend to of course there are the likes of Lee Seung Gicause it affects them a lot. Admin of one of her fansite, again i apologize for not being able to respond to your reponse point by point. Real Men shouldn't be a factor. However, it is of course necessary to "check out the competition" but again, that's a different school of thought and a different post. Song Ji Hyo deserves to make a mark bigger than being the Monday Girlfriend.
As of now, that's her biggest impact. Its incredible. Monday Couple make both Gary and Jihyo famous. It's a fact and you can't deny it. With Monday Couple, they are not famous and now its so ironic that you mention that Monday Couple are ruining her career? Do you think if she not famous there is drama for her?
I think its a No.
You can't do that when she get famous now. Its like you mentioning that you forget those work that make you popular? Believe me, without Monday Couple, all people will forget them soon. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough in my comment but as I can see you have a greater level of understanding of Gary as I have of JiHyo instead.
And I would not want to argue with you about hiphop since it is not in my area of interest. From what I'm however aware of, both parties have been directed with questions of each other more often than not out of their own countries, seems like international fans are the one that are more affected by the entire idea.
I do recognize you have specifically only replied to part of my post perhaps the length or have you been too busy. So why do you choose to write an article on someone you seem to lack an understanding about, it is the same if I were to be write an article about Gary right? Just doesn't seem to make sense to me that I have to be discussing about him just like it doesn't make sense to me that you are discussing about her. Elsewhere in the world that don't seem to be from Korea it seems, apparently box office in Japan for the movie was a hit, though I will credit that to the popularity of JaeJoong instead and with his fame in South Korea why is his fans not supporting it?
The difference of acting and singing seems to differ a lot as well Fugitive of Joseon on the other hand is now sold to countries out of Korea as well, though I will have to question her role in the drama due to an underdeveloped relationship with Lee Dong Wook.
Yes, her position as an actress did not stand out as much as I would have hoped for her and undeniably Running Man is what pushed her into fame, and the same goes for Gary as well, even to other members too.
But just think, if you are going to South Korea as an international fan, is it easier for you to purchase the CD of your favorite singer or rapper which you can even ask someone else to do so for you and have a meal at his restaurant open almost daily throughout the year as compared to watching a movie most international fans would not be able to understand only available for screening for 2 months or less and all in Korean and watch a drama where you would not probably even affect the ratings at all take note of how it is tabulatedthe answer is obvious isn't it.
I'm trying to say that even comparing within this vast industry doesn't make sense, yes they may both be entertainers on Running Man, but the difference in their main career makes it a nonsensical comparison. Even comparing Song Ji Hyo with Lee Kwang Soo would be different already despite the same acting career one a comedic role by nature, one a dark dark queen what more a singer and an actress?
It is like comparing an apple with an orange what more comparing with a watermelon? The support definitely varies, because the way it is expressed is different to begin with. It is impossible to have a clear cut comparison for the 2 like what you seem to be trying to do, so why are you assuming your position to judge her when your lack of understanding of her is reflected through what you type here though I agree with some points you have pointed out but some are nonsense in my humble opinion?
Perhaps you should have tried to do a post on Gary instead, seems to me you do understand him very well. But what you are trying to do is like if I try to write a post on analysis of Gary, I may understand his history, heard his song perhaps, but my level of understanding of him will definitely be one below yours, won't it? The whole comparison thing is what I don't agree with at all, popularity is not for me to judge. But we do have 1 point in agreement, the fact that Monday Couple should be stopped, but in my opinion, rather than JiHyo fans being not accustomed to any other guy rather than Gary it is the Monday Couple fans that don't.
Critiques does not talk about Monday Couple as much as you seem to find at least from what I gather through Nate and Naver, it is the image of variety that audiences can't get through and something I am looking forward to for her to find her own breakthrough. Hi Admin of one of her fansite LeeSsang interviews in hiphop world. Unlike before Kang Gary's niche has always been hiphop. She deserves it.
The Jackal is Coming had mediocre box office. MC should lie low. Song Ji Hyo has done enough to prove her worth. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to argue with all your points, rather I do agree that Monday Couple should lie low.
It is just that your argument lacks too much evidence, that I'm actually creating an essay arguing against it.
Monday Couple is not a character but a character pairing or relationship, arguably each member has his or her own role to play in the show, now if you just look over to Gary, he is the one lacking in roles rather than JiHyo, peaceful Gary it worked well but the lack of its appearance makes it not that stable a characterstraight going Gary this has an even more limited appearanceoccasional commander or something like that, too much overlapping with Jong Kook's role and also a lack of appearance.
Actually her existence in Running Man is actually quite a big deal in South Korea, challenging the traditional norms to outdoor variety show not only doing it well, but very well such that changes are actually slowly being seen in the variety of South Korea I won't credit everything to her but her existence in an outdoor variety for such a long period of time is indeed remarkable, and even a rare one as compared to probably western countries or Taiwan etc.
Noting that you mentioned Park Ye Jin, then most probably the idea of how she left the show because of her over exposure in Family Outing has led people being unable to focus on her acting, it wasn't that her acting wasn't good but rather the fact that VIEWERS are unable to break through the image that they have already imagined her to be. So does the fault lie with the celebrity, the audience, or the show itself?
Note that she has not been acting in dramas of the channel in which the variety show was broadcast SBS Family Outing ever since she started being on that program and even after she left.
And the reason is simple, because this being the same TV channel that created her image to begin with, they are the most fearful of such reaction from the audience those watching SBS. Her acting abilities may not have "depreciated", rather her role in variety limited her career which is exactly what JiHyo faces now. The same does not however apply as much to Actor Kwang Soo, who started off acting in comedic roles for dramas like Dong Yi for example with him being the beanpole musician.
Song Ji Hyo is one of the only regular female cast members on a Korean variety show, which has led to dating rumors with her 'Running Man' co-stars, Song Joong-ki's Well-Preserved Good Looks, Same as 6 Years Ago. Song Ji Hyo showed her affection towards her real life boyfriend, drawing . as she showed preference for Yoo Jae Suk over Song Joong Ki. JiHyo really misses her friend Song Joong Ki and it's very obvious in their recent photo. Song Ji Hyo vs Song Joong Ki - Best Couple Song of Running Man Song Ji Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo deny dating rumours.
At the very least she is taking a big step forward by acting in a role for a romantic-comedy, something she has not really tried before. For whatever the reason, Monday Couple should lay low for now if they ever considered caring for her at all. Filming a drama is tiring enough and having to deal with another loveline problem isn't worth the effort.
To begin with, after her relationship was exposed, she has hardly ever not that I remember initiated the loveline at all. It was only before her relationship got exposed that she has ever done it to begin with Eg. After the reappearance of the loveline around the period of time when Gary wanted to quit the showit has only been a one-sided initiative kind of thing Recent Eg. Totally initiating it, I can totally see that.
And note that your spelling error for Mr. Back That's how it is actually spelled in the C-JeS page. And wrong again, Gary has often mentioned JiHyo in his interviews and I can date it back to Strong Heart Ep98, rather, the mention of Gary in her interviews has only been a more common recurrence after the reappearance of the loveline. And the same goes for him as well, actually even other members are mentioning it in their interviews. And of cause comes in the gender part of this entire issue, the fact that there is no gender equality makes it worse for her.
Imagine now that Gary is the one to have a relationship instead of her? And what will we get, everyone at least most will be fine with it because that's how society view things like how affairs are actually acceptable for guys more often than girls like how the typical Korean drama will act it all out.
But the difference is now that she is the one in a relationship, and everything just doesn't seem acceptable all of a sudden. And this is a note to your other post on why Running Man's ratings actually fell, there were many contributing factors actually and you missed out a lot of main points that were beyond the show itself, which makes me question the level of analysis you can actually attempt to do.
Of course, there is something wrong with the show as well but this are some other factors that could have played a big factor in the entire story but wasn't consider at all.
Your entire post is filled with too much loopholes and assumptions from interviews and lack of real reading up as wellwith some of them even being wrong to begin with, lack of factual evidence and not having any backup to support your arguments makes it a lot dubious, having tried to read other articles on the same site, I do sense a lack of sufficient understanding in your posts, if you have been slightly more aware of anything at all, this post would of course sound a whole lot better.
Just to conclude, yes, Monday Couple is affecting her career but does the fault really lie with her? Being not the initiative one but the accepting one shouldn't the man be like a man and take the responsibility of controlling this situation? The fact that Running Man's ratings did actually go up in Ep despite her being paired up with Lee Dong Wook, ignoring fans who have always been so extreme in their views of loveline, the general public showed great response to the chemistry between Song Ji Hyo and Lee Dong Wook.
This problem of Monday Couple and everything seems to make a even greater impact abroad than in Korea itself too, at the very least most of the time when JiHyo is asked about Gary in her interviews as of recently, it has been the Hong Kong media throwing in the question, and Gary about JiHyo, there was one in his Taiwan Leessang's concert.
Song Ji Hyo is the lone female member of Running Man and time has In fact, Song Ji Hyo was said to have been dating Baek Chang Joo (CEO of .. I think its best she do what joong ki did, Walk away for a while, focus and. Song Joong Ki enlisted on the 27th of August, and the day before He was quite sad after realizing that it was Song Ji Hyo and jokingly hurt. Seems like Song Ji Hyo were paired with many hot male celebrities in Running man. Gary has been summoned by netizens whenever Song Ji Hyo has dating Song Joong Ki, Kim Ji Won, Jang Dong Gun, and Kim Ok Bin.
Both were appearing for individual projects and this actually reflects more of a lack of respect to the artiste than anything else. Furthermore, Jong Kook has too mention it in his interview somewhere out of Korea as well.
Just to note her fans as in HER fans only hermostly are able to accept her with any guys, it is the fans of lovelines that can't accept her with other guys at all.
Another note, The Woman Who Married 3 Times rejected her because of Running Man, as the scriptwriter does not like her leads to be in any other project when the drama is being filmed to prevent distractions, another one of the lead actress candidate was rejected cause she had a drama.
And interesting JH was well recognized for her acting abilities in FF you can argue on this one but that was how critiques described it at that time. I think it is ironic how this article is about how the monday couple loveline is ruining john's career and yet at the voting section, another loveline is being proposed. No hate, I just find it incredibly ironic. I think that you have brought up many good points in the article but I have to refute some as well.
While it is true that people are only remembering jihyo for her role as 'monday girlfriend' and it is going to be incredibly difficult -if not near impossible, to not associate her with 'monday couple', I think that it isn't all harm as well.
Yoo Jae Suk teased Song Ji Hyo and Gary that they now sit together as if figures, as she showed preference for Yoo Jae Suk over Song Joong. The two actually first started dating before filming their drama, Descendants of the But Song Joong Ki had apparently been interested in Song Hye Kyo before.
Her notable awards that she has won in her career are mainly her excellence awards from running man. This shows that her performance in running man is highly regarded and that attention has been placed on her through running man.
And it is inevitable to not think of 'Monday couple' when you think of running man.
Before Kim Jong Kook, who has been paired with Song Ji Hyo in Running Man?
Noticeably, her fanbase is mainly made up of people whom she has garnered support from via running man and no denying, from her role as 'Monday girlfriend'. To actors and actresses, it is usually a bane to not be able to shake off an image as versatility is valued so highly in the industry. But face it, before running man, jihyo was almost a nobody ohgod I sound harsh don't I. Her most notable role was her portrayal as hyorin in goong, and that was almost 10 years ago.
As much as running man has placed a 'stigma' and perception on her, she needs it. She needs running man, she needs Monday couple. Without it, she wouldn't have been as well known as she is today. Back to my first statement.The Real Reason Why Song Ji Hyo Did Not Go To The Song Jong Ki & Song Hye Kyo Wedding
Even if the loveline parties changed to someone else, she will still be subjected to the image as a 'loveline girlfriend'. It is almost inevitable, considering she is the only female. It doesn't matter who she is playing the loveline opposite to, she will still be subjected to the same situation where she is unable to shake off her image in running man.
She is very thrilled to see their friend once again and seems like she really misses him a lot. Netizens comment "Her expression says she really misses her a lot".
Netizens are so amusing sometimes. The photos are said to be taken along an alley in Hannam dong on June 4 after the "Baeksang Awards" which the three actors attended. The three top actors dressed down and are looking casual and seem friendly with each other along with their respective staff. Read more. With the overwhelming fame Song Joong Ki is receiving, being his look alike might not give you a peace of mind. In Julythe same month when Song broke up with Joo, there were reports regarding the rumors between Song and Gary.
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.
Naturally, who would not be affected by this love affair? Fans started to ship them, which led to increasing popularity.
