South Korean actress Lee Sung Kyung has become a global superstar thanks to her adorable performances in "Cheese in the Trap" and "Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo." Being a huge star in the business also means getting caught up in dating rumors, but the actress reveals she's having none of it.

"Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo" star Lee Sung Kyung has been linked to co-star Nam Joo Hyuk and Block B's lead rapper Zico.

The Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk dating rumors were expected because of the pairs undeniable chemistry on and off screen. According to Koreaboo, even the production staff of "Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo" confirmed this, revealing that the two are very comfortable with doing intimate scenes with each other. Both Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk have since denied the rumors, saying they are just good friends.

The Lee Sung Kyung and Zico dating rumors, however, are a different story. The actress has clarified that she and Zico are just friends and nothing more. But because of the persistence of the gossips, she has reached the point of exhaustion.

She revealed in an interview that she has been linked to several dating rumors involving male idols and that she's already grown exhausted of it all.

When W Magazine asked if she has a boyfriend at the moment, Lee Sung Kyung said it's impossible for her to be in a relationship because of the tabloids and the rumors that come out of them. She jokingly said she feels like she's dating hundreds of guys at once because of the amount of dating rumors she's in.

Aside from her love life, there's one more thing about Lee Sung Kyung that people are taking notice of-her fashion sense. What's more, with a following over 5.5 million on Instagram, she's being labeled as the Gigi Hadid of South Korea.
