About a month ago, I uploaded a music video I made of my favorite Korean drama couple, So Yi Jung (Kim Bum) and Chu Ga Eul (Kim So Eun) from Boys Over Flowers. To my surprise, the MV has over 4,200+ views and counting. If you’re one of the viewers, thanks for watching my MV! 😀 I was only expecting a few hundred the first month. So to have over 4k is awesome!! Glad to know that so many out there enjoy the MV! The main reason why I dedicated the MV to SoEul/BumSso (Kim Bum+So Eun) fans is because of their loyal support of this couple since Boys Over Flowers aired back in 2009. I’m amazed that even after 6 years, there are still so many shippers hoping for this couple to reunited on screen again. 🙂 Normally, shippers like this dies down after a year.
I’m also a believer that Kim Bum and So Eun had a secret dating/relationship during/after Boys Over Flowers. Here’s an amazing BumSso fansite with evidences supporting this theory: http://www.simply-love.net (check out the Trivia section). Although I’m not sure how long they were together, I’m assuming it must had been awhile. The last proof that they were still in contact was an article back in April 2013, when So Eun mention how Bummie and her still text and “see each other often”. “Often”, in case you didn’t know, means more than a few times. 😉
If they were still in a secret relationship 4 years later, that makes me very happy!! What’s disappointing is (if true), how they continue to keep it a secret for that long instead of making it public to declare their love. The first year, I can understand because they were young and didn’t want to ruin their career. But 4 years later?! Perhaps they always had an up and down relationship? Hence, it was risky coming out. Who knows.
Here’s the thing that makes me worry that they MIGHT of had a bad breakup? A few months after So Eun’s article, Bummie starred in Goddess of Fire with Lee Sang Yoon and Moon Geun Young. During filming, he fell head over heels for Moon. After filming was done, the couple didn’t waste any time and announced their status that they were dating. Then they took a month long trip together to Europe. This was the first public relationship for both of them. The first time I heard this story, for some reason, I felt that Bummie only agreed to make this public because Moon probably wanted to in order to avoid a scandal. She probably gave him an ultimatum: I will only date you if you agree to make it public. I know that in South Korea, Moon’s a big star (bigger than So Eun) and is known as the “Nation’s Little Sister”. The last thing she needs, is a bad rep. Bummie on the other hand, always seem to be a private guy when it comes to his love life. They also only dated for about 6-7 months. Of course, I have no proof that this is how it went down, but I like my chances of being right. 😛
I have no idea if Bummie was cheating on So Eun, or if they were actually friends for the last few months (years?) prior to his public relationship with Moon, but I would like to believe that they separated on good terms. Now to the question of this title: Will Kim Bum & So Eun ever make another k-drama together again?? Even if they separated on good terms, it’ll be very awkward (even more so during BOF) for them to film together again. Unless they are very good friends and feel comfortable enough to do be intimate on screen. I hope this is the case, so their feelings can revive and they can date again! 😉 If they had a bad breakup, then we will never see them in another k-drama. 😦 How would you feel doing an on screen relationship with a faithless ex-boyfriend?
Something I found interesting is how So Eun ended up in a k-drama called Liar Game a year later with Lee Sang Yoon (Lee played a lover of Moon’s character in Goddess of Fire). So Eun said during their press conference how she was disappointed her and Lee never had an on screen romance. Hmm….OK. LOL. I know to many, this statement may had been not much. But to me, I feel it almost came off to make Kim Bum jealous. As if So Eun secretly knew that Bummie was jealous of Lee during Goddess of Fire. Why not burn Bummie and have a love scene with Lee as well? Hehehe. Oh, So Eun!
With all that said, I still hold out hope that they will reunited again for us BumSso shippers. I’m hoping that Bummie dating Moon didn’t ruin his and So Eun’s relationship and that they are still good friends. I’d rather they be in a romantic relationship, but sadly, I think they are no longer an item. 😦 Wish I’m wrong though! I know the chances of them on screen again is very unlikely, but one can hope!!! 😉 Even if they end up never doing another drama together again, I will always support them. Check out my the many GIFs I’ve made of them: SoEul GIFs and another MV I made only found on my blog: SoEul MV
Looking forward to their new dramas (Bum’s Hidden Identity and So Eun’s Scholar who Walks the Night) this summer! FIGHTING BumSso!~~ …Off to read SoEul fanfics now!! 😀
