What's Wrong with Secretary Kim is one of the most popular K-dramas of all time, thanks to its cheesy romance storyline between narcissistic businessman Lee Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) and his loyal secretary of nine years, Kim Mi-so (Park Min-young). Fans couldn't get enough of the tantalising chemistry shared between Seo-joon and Min-young and the dating rumours immediately started circulating like wildfire. From having the same fashion taste to an alleged foreign trip together, the speculations were never-ending and putting an end to said romance rumours was the Itaewon Class star himself.

In a 2018 interview with Hankook Ilbo, via Koreaboo's translation, the 31-year-old actor spoke frankly about how all the speculations were just stuff of wild imagination. Seo-joon felt that the "evidence" to prove their "relationship" had been forced. Regarding their alleged trip together, the Dream star sarcastically stated that he should share his departure and arrival dates on his plane tickets but it's not like he did anything wrong. So why should he have to go to such extremes?

Moreover, on their shared fashion items, Seo-joon quipped, "As for the overlapping fashion items, people who follow fashion trends know – those items were popular at the time. I have some products in all its colors. If it means I’m dating someone because we share the same taste in fashion, I guess that means I could be dating Justin Bieber too."

Furthermore, Seo-joon also rubbished the speculations that it was him who recommended Min-young be cast in What's Wrong with Secretary Kim, stating that he has zero power and is not nearly as important to have that kind of a levy.

Regarding his baseball uniform number being changed from #28 to #34 (Min-young's birthday is on March 4), Seo-joon clarified that he initially wanted #27, which was taken and so had to first settle for #28. However, his number changed to #34 when the team decided to get brand new uniforms.

"If you’re into MLB, you’ll know. #34 players are often their teams' aces or right-handed fire ballers. A lot of masculine, tough guy type players wear #34 too. That’s why I decided to go with that number. It’s not because Park Min-young’s birthday is March 4th, but that’s how that got played out," Seo-joon added to Hankook Ilbo.

Yeah actually I love their couple and ship them but it's not like every time an actor and actress make a movie together means they are dating. It's just people who make false forced rumors because they ship them and want them to date . But I do really ship them but they're not dating but that's fine it's upon them. We Don't have to disturb them by making them uncomfortable. Just ship them in your heart ♥. Simple.

Although I think they'd make a great couple in real life because their chemistry onscreen is amazing, if that is not how it is with them and they're really just friends then there's nothing wrong with that. It's better that they are just friends and can potentially gift us another project together. I'd like that more than them being a couple IRL but had to resort to stop working together. This is why I don't "ship" people, the pressure alone will turn them off from each other than being them closer. I wish to see them again in the same show.

I hope their statements serves as a lesson to some shippers out there who force their delusions. Park min young is well known for her straightforward personality. She is honest and consistent on her words. What saddens me are the shippers war. They are bashing the co stars who have acted with PMY and PSJ just because they couldn't accept the fact that they never dated. They had a good chemistry on screen. Off screen they had those sweet moments too but those weren't enough to conclude that they're dating. Personally, I think those were very normal because they were acting as lovers.

That's because PSJ and PMY are so natural onscreen and their chemistry is undeniably good. It seems like there's no script and the scenes were played out just as beautifully.

So TRUEEEEE!!!!

You are right! They had fantastic chemistry. I do not understand why people get like that about actors (male/female). Just because they can act and have good chemistry, does not mean in real life they have that or a lot of things in common. I always like reading when they are really good friends, like the actors in Goblin.
