Park Seo Joon spoke out about the ongoing dating rumors with Park Min Young.
On July 31, Park Seo Joon held an interview at a cafe in Gangnam in light of his recently ended drama 'What's Wrong With Secretary Kim'. A few of the questions of the interview regarded his relationship with co-star Park Min Young.
On the dating rumors, Park Seo Joon first said, "I couldn't help but read everything since it's about me." He then explained, "They were saying we have many same items and traveled together. I wondered if I have to reveal my departure dates for proof. But in a way, I didn't think that was necessary since I haven't done anything wrong. As for the 'couple items', people who like clothes and are interested in fashion would know that the items were a trend during the time. I have them in several colors, but if you say I'm dating her just by the one that happens to overlap then I must be dating Justin Bieber too (laughs). I have nothing to say if you're going to forcefully fit things like that. Some say I was obvious but I'm not sure what was obvious."
He also talked about the number of his baseball jersey. Netizens claimed Park Seo Joon's jersey number, 34, resembles Park Min Young's birthday which is March 4.
Regarding this, Park Seo Joon explained, "I agree the back number can be seen that way. My number was 28 when I first entered the baseball team. I wanted to do 27 but 28 was the closest one. The reason why I changed my number recently is that the celebrity baseball team got new uniforms with the charity Gocheok Sky Dome game coming up. If you like major league baseball then you would know 34 is the number often used by the ace of the team. Usually, a manly sang-namja player uses 34 so I chose that but it was once again fit into (the dating rumors) like this."
Lastly, Park Seo Joon shared that he was hesitant about speaking up on the rumors. However, "There were many people who were curious and it's not true so I ended up talking about it."
