Korean heartthrob Song Seung Heon made a low-key appearance at girlfriend Liu Yifei’s 28th birthday party, and set the Internet ablaze with rumours of a proposal, which the actress has denied on Weibo.
“Thank you for your well wishes,” she wrote. “I don’t wish to say much, except that the wise don’t spread rumours. Goodnight! I’m very happy.”
According to Chinese media, Seung Heon stayed close by at the Hayao Miyazaki animation-themed celebration on Tuesday, wearing a suit and sitting in a far corner.
His presence was noticed only when fans on Weibo posted photos taken with Yifei at the event, and netizens pointed out the shadowy figure of Seung Heon in the distant background. This sparked rumours that a proposal had already taken place, and many fans congratulated Yifei on Weibo, leading to her clarification.
The pair met on the set of Chinese–Korean movie The Third Way of Love in 2014, and Seung Heon’s agency confirmed the relationship this month.
