Celebrities can also be fans! There have been numerous times when celebrities were asked about their ideal types or talked about a celebrity crush - and at a later time, ended up dating them! Down below are some of the examples of this happening - and while some have broken up since, some are still going strong!
SHINee's Jonghyun and Shin Se Kyung
Previously, while SHINee was on a reality program taking care of a baby for 'SHINee's Hello Baby,' Jonghyun mentioned more than once that he was currently a big fan of trendy actress Shin Se Kyung, who is the same age. He chose her as his ideal type - and later, the two were found to be dating! On top of that, she proved to be a fan of SHINee, too, as she stated in an interview that the singer she wanted to see was group SHINee. Alas, the two split up eventually.
T-ara's Soyeon and Oh Jong Hyuk
During a broadcast of 'Star Golden Bell' back in 2010, T-ara's Soyeon revealed that she was a huge fan of Click B, a group that had Oh Jong Hyuk had belonged to before becoming an actor. She had even accumulated money to give the group a sofa as a present! She had visited them at their dorms and followed them to music shows like any other devoted fan. And they're still going strong apparently!
EXID's Hani and JYJ's Junsu
After their dating news broke up, Hani appeared on 'Radio Star' and revealed that she had been his fan since her high school days! The two are a recent couple - having dated for a few months and gone public earlier this year. Imagine dating a celeb you crushed on years later...
Lee Seung Gi and YoonA
One of the prime examples is definitely this couple. Lee Seung Gi had said before on broadcasts multiple times that he was a huge fan of YoonA and she was his ideal type. They even appeared on a program together and he was affectionate towards her. Eventually, the two dated, although this did not last.
Lee Min Ho and Suzy
Seems like Lee Min Ho had his eye on Suzy, who seemed to match up to his ideal type! He clearly was a fan. One media outlet alleged, "Lee Min Ho approached Suzy first around January, February, and they met. Lee Min Ho has always said that he likes, 'bright and lovable women,' and that ideal type synced up with Suzy." Despite rumors of breakups, both sides insist they are still an item.
BONUS - Park Hae Jin and Kim Go Eun
Although the two never dated, Park Hae Jin previously stated in an interview that his ideal type at the moment was Kim Go Eun, and the interviewer hilariously said, "I hope to hear some good news soon." And he did! Sorta... The two got to work together in a drama, playing an affectionate couple with their realistic ups and downs in the tvN drama 'Cheese in the Trap.' Close 'nuff, right? Right, Park Hae Jin?
