Chinese Fans in Shock over Rumors that Tang Wei and Director Kim Tae Yong are Dating
Local Chinese fans are in shock over the new rumors surrounding their ′goddess′ Tang Wei.
A recent news report published rumors that Tang Wei is in a relationship with director Kim Tae Yong of Late Autumn.
Local fans have shown they′re divided on the issue. Some netizens have congratulated the couple, while some have said "there′s nothing to be surprised about because it′s not too rare to see a director go out with an actress."
A larger group of netizens, however, have shown they′re not taking the news too kindly. In Weibo, some have commented, "I can′t believe the goddess of China has gone to Korea..." "No," "I guess no Chinese man had enough courage to try for her hand" and "It would actually have been better if she were going out with Hyun Bin."
According to the December issue of Ladies′ Joongang, Tang Wei and director Kim Tae Yong met in 2009 while shooting Late Autumn. The two became closer this year, and even had a serious talk about the film as its director and actress while shooting in Seattle.
Sources close to the two figures, however, have said they don′t know about the truth behind the rumors.
One source close to director Kim Tae Yong said in a phone conversation with enews that he′s "never heard of such a thing."
