Wasn’t ready to post anything about this news yet. But we’re into day 2 and reality has settled in… *sobs* If I can date, then I should let him too, right?! But can’t help but to feel heartbroken, yet still happy for Seunggi. Especially when you can’t help but to grin like crazy at everyone being so happy for them. But I would feel so much better if Seunggi communicated something to us soon. English translation…

2014 First Official Couple Lee Seunggi ♥ Yoona
English: LSGfan, Video: seunggiairen
2014′s first official couple is born. Nation’s Younger Brother Lee Seunggi and his ideal type SNSD’s Yoona are dating.
2014 January 1. Wreaking havoc on the internet on the first day of the year, the persons behind this dating news is… Nation’s Younger Brother Lee Seunggi… and a member of popular girlgroup SNSD… Yoona.
According to the dating news, they’ve been getting to know one other better over the past 4 months. To hear more about these top stars’ dating news, we stopped by their agencies. But were unable to meet anyone. And trying to connect by phone was not easy.
However, as soon as news of their dating broke, both respective agencies confirmed the dating news within an hour. So, when did they first start meeting? We met with the [Dispatch] reporter.
Dispatch: Typically, after his scheduled activities, Lee Seunggi would drive directly up to Yoona’s apartment garage, and after picking her up, they would drive down the street, or Namsan, or the Han River. That’s how their dates typically happened.
R: To see more in detail, we were able to obtain this video footage, which wasn’t easy. They would meet late in the evening and would always return by at least 1am. Netizens nicknamed this the “Cinderella date.” They always stayed in the car.
Dispatch: The windows on the car are tinted so we weren’t able to check things in detail. But every time, they would wear a hat or covered by jacket.
R: The two persons actually live very near one another. They’re neighbors. I can walk from one building to the other in 5 minutes; it’s really close by. Maybe that helped for them to meet up more readily. So did any of the community neighbors see this couple?
R: Have you ever seen Lee Seunggi or Yoona?
W1: I’ve never seen them. I’ve only seen Seunggi’s younger sibling.
R: Did you know they were dating?
W2: I’ve never seen them. I see Seunggi and his parents, but I’ve never her.
R: They say it’s been 4 months.
W2: Really? He’s with his driver, or most of the time, Seunggi is by himself.
As their dating news broke, old footage of the two are getting a lot of attention. Since 2009, Lee Seunggi chose Yoona as his ideal type. Even in this more recent interview, perhaps the characteristics he mentioned were about her too? So how did she feel about him? Yoona had also chosen Lee Seunggi as her ideal type too. It really seems like there was something already there years ago. (LOL these male reporters are so giddy.)
R: So what’s been people’s reaction to this dating news?
-Really the two of them are dating? They go great together. (Announcer says woman talk as if their son had a girlfriend! Yup, everyone loves Seunggi!)
-They’re pretty and it makes me feel good.
-They seem like gentle and thoughtful entertainers. I even think if things work out well, they could even get married.
R: Who do you think is more deserving?
Female: Lee Seunggi! (hehe)
Male: Yoona! (hehe)
Both: Seunggi-Yoona~ enjoy a pretty love just like us. Fighting!
R: Yes, we hope the romance between these two can enjoy a sweet love.
A1: This is 2014′s first official couple. Lee Seunggi and Yoona. Maybe it’s because they are known to be such heartwarming guy – heartwarming girl, but the couple looks great together and it feels good to see them together. And the public reaction seems really good too. I heard that both sides confirmed the dating news soon after.
A2: Within an hour, each side confirmed this in a very cool manner. As you saw in the photos, the two persons dated in a very upstanding manner. And it wasn’t that someone introduced the two to one another, but they naturally found favor in one another as boyfriend-girlfriend, so people nearby didn’t know about it either. We hope these two can enjoy a pretty love. And for those who are already bringing up marriage, it’s only 4 months right now, so let’s not be too pushy!
A3: Often times, stars will deny it, but it’s really nice to see them be straightforward about it. Many fans have given their blessing too. So please have a pretty love, and in the case these two get married, Lee Seunggi can sing his proposal song “Will You Marry Me?” (omg K-news reporters are usually so stoic, so it’s cute to see them be so happy for this couple!)
