“Boys Over Flowers” celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, it aired in March 2009. It is also considered one of the most popular kdramas of all time, one of the kdramas that gave a push to the hallyu wave.
The cast of the drama (main and supporting) went on to lead their own careers; most of them now lead their own projects, a huge leap from where they had started 10 years ago.
During those 10 years the cast went through many ups and downs, today, we shall take a look at the love lives of the famous cast (main and supporting).
Probably the name that often comes to mind when you bring up “Boys Over Flowers” is the actor behind Go Jun Pyo, the hot rich chaebol who treats the lead like trash but ends up falling deeply in love with Jan Di that it changes him.
Lee Min Ho love life has always been the interest of his fans. He was involved with two very famous Korean actresses since “Boys Over Flowers.”
He publicly dated Park Min Young for a while after developing feelings for her while filming “City Hunter,” they had known each other even before “Boys Over Flowers” as they filmed a 2007 drama together back when they were rookies. They broke up not too long after going public with their relationship.
Lee Min Ho was also involved with idol-actress Suzy. The breaking news took the media by storm. The majority of fans showed great response towards the couple and cheered them on.
While he was serving the military back in November of 2017, he announced his breakup from Suzy; they had dated for two years.
Suzy has since then moved on to date another popular actor, Lee Dong Wook. She later broke up with him not too long after going public with their relationship.
Lee Min Ho was discharged from the military on April 25, 2019. He’s currently preparing for his upcoming drama; there are no news about a potential lover so far.
Ku Hye Sun charmed both national and international fans with her portrayal of Geum Jan Di who is still considered one of the most beloved kdrama characters of all time.
Ku Hye Sun is one of the many “Boys Over Flowers” cast members who tied the knot since the drama aired back in 2009, however, her famous love story ended with a huge controversy that is still unfolding as of this writing.
She met her husband; Ahn Jae Hyun; on the set of “Blood” which aired in 2015.
In March of 2016, the actress shared the happy news with her fans, she revealed she was dating actor Ahn Jae Hyun. The couple officially registered their marriage at the Gangnam district office on May 20, 2016 and married on May 21, 2016.
They were considered one of the most beloved and charitable Korean celebrity couples, they had even decided to give away their wedding money instead of holding a ceremony.
They even went on to share a glimpse of their married life with fans through the reality show “Newlywed Diary” in 2017.
The couple usually shared snippets of their daily lives and many cute selfies, however, about two weeks ago, fans were shocked to learn about just how troubled their marriage really was all along.
On August 18, Ku Hye Sun personally revealed through her instagram account that her husband wants a divorce because he had a change of heart and got bored.
She later shared snippets of their conversations and it wasn’t in favor of Ahn Jae Hyun. You can read more about it here.
What happened next was a drama on its own; their private struggles became very public as Ku Hye Sun proceeded to reveal more details about Ahn Jae Hyun. She revealed that he would drunkenly contact women often in front of her and badmouthed her with their agency female CEO.
Ahn Jae Hyun then then released a statement trying to refute her claims; he also claimed she trespassed on his property and went through his phone. She later debunked that and shocked fans revealing that Ahn Jae Hyun asked for divorce because she ‘wasn’t sexy enough/ had sexy nipples.’ (you read that right)
Ku Hye Sun also announced through her lawyer that she doesn’t plan on getting a divorce for the sake of ‘protecting her family.’ The controversy is still ongoing. It is unknown if the couple will file for a divorce or not.
Fans wish for the couple to resolve their matters privately as it affected both of them greatly.
Kim Hyun Joong is probably the most controversial actor on this list.
Since “Boys Over Flowers,” the actor went on to lead a successful singing and acting career. However, his private life took the center stage and ultimately ruined his career.
Despite 2014 initially turning out to be his year, in August of that year his world crumbled when his ex-girlfriend Ms. Choi claimed that he beat her when she had been carrying his baby. A lot transpired since then, he sued her for defamation and she sued back. The long legal battle lasted for almost 4 years.
While battling legally he served the military and was discharged in February 2017.
In 2018, the long legal battle between him and Ms. Choi ended; he sued her for attempted fraud and defamation. The prosecution sentenced Ms. Choi to pay a fine of 5 million won (approximately $4,600). However, their tumultuous relationship yielded the birth of their child.
In December 2015, a paternity test revealed that Kim Hyun Joong was the father of a baby that Ms. Choi had given birth to in September of that year.
Kim Hyun Joong opened up about his son during the press conference of his drama return earlier this year. At the press conference, he was asked about his son whom he had with his ex-girlfriend.
He again apologized but this time to “When Time Stops” cast for the question the reporter asked, he said,
“I am sorry to the actors for answering these private questions since this is a press conference to promote our drama. But I will tell the truth to everyone. I am in a situation where I can’t see my child yet. Honestly, I don’t know whats the right thing. But I will do my best no matter what and where I am. For my child, this is the only thing I can say.
Anything else might hurt the child, so I would like not to comment anymore about it. Since as I said I am in a situation where I can’t see my child.”
Kim Bum has also managed to create a name for himself throughout his career since “Boys Over Flowers.” He was also publicly involved with two actresses despite keeping a low profile.
Kim Bum dated actress Moon Geun Young for 7 months after they met on the set of their drama. The couple ended their relationship in 2014.
On March 29, 2018, it was confirmed that he is in a relationship with actress Oh Yeon Seo from “Hwayugi.”
That relationship also didn’t last for too long. On February 13, 2019, it was announced that he has broken up with Oh Yeon Seo. Kim Bum’s agency told DongA.com that the two decided to end their relationship in late 2018.
Kim Joon is the only “Boys Over Flowers” cast member who went MIA since the drama aired and when he came back, he shocked his fans.
Not too long ago, he revealed that he has been married for 3 years to a woman that he dated for 9 years, even before he had debuted in the entertainment industry.
He is now a father to a sweet daughter; he showed her for the first time on the popular variety show “The Return of Superman” back in September 2018. Since then, he’s been constantly sharing videos and photos of his lovely daughter to his fans.
He is the least controversial cast member of “Boys Over Flowers.” He also has the most stable love life. However, he’s not the only parent on this list.
Lee Min Jung might have played a minor role in “Boys Over Flowers” but she went on to establish a name for herself as a leading lady through various productions throughout the years.
Lee Min Jung found her prince charming a while ago. She married the famous actor Lee Byung Hun back on August 10, 2013. The couple had briefly dated in 2006, and then resumed their relationship in 2012.
She is now a mother to a son, she gave birth to their first child, Lee Joon Hoo back on 31 March 2015. She is the 3rd parent on this list but definitely not the last.
Kim So Eun is another actress of “Boys over Flowers” who ended up finding her place in the entertainment industry.
She is the only main cast member of “Boys Over Flowers” that hasn’t been involved in any dating scandals throughout her career. She’s been linked to some actors and idols but never once confirmed her relationship with any of them.
She was famously paired with actor Song Jae Rim in the popular variety show “We Got Married,” despite many rumors surrounding their actual relationship, nothing was ever confirmed.
Most of “Boys Over Flowers” fans might not even remember that Lee Si Young was also one of the cast members of the beloved kdrama.
She went on to lead many good dramas such as “Valid Love,” “Golden Cross” and “Lookout.”
She gained a lot of attention for revealing she was pregnant after her drama “Lookout” wrapped up. The drama demanded physical strength; fans were surprised to learn of her pregnancy but appreciated her professionalism during the drama run time.
She was dating a non-celebrity and announced that she would be getting married to him back then.
Her husband is called Jo Seung Hyun; he is a businessman who works in the restaurant industry. In October 2017, they held their wedding ceremony and she welcomed her first child, a boy, in January 2018.
Han Chae Young
Han Chae Young was already married when she was cast in the drama; she is one of the cast members who welcomed their first child after “Boys Over Flowers” wrapped up.
