Actor Kim Jae Wook has been caught up in dating rumors with actress Lee El for the second time.
An online community post has proposed that the two actors were in a relationship as they allegedly bought a couple ring together.
According to the post, a jewelry store shared a photo of Lee El and another man wearing a similar ring on their Instagram. The store tagged Lee El but only referred to the man as a “revisiting customer” and “a customer who always pulls off the items”.
Some netizens have been claiming that the small mole on the man’s pinky finger was like that of Kim Jae Wook’s and suspected that the hand in the photo was his.
This was not the first time Kim Jae Wook and Lee El’s dating rumors went around. Last May, Lee El posted and then deleted a photo of Kim Jae Wook sleeping.
At the time, Lee El denied the dating rumors, claiming that she shared the photo just for fun.
I took the photo in the waiting room. I thought it was a funny photo so I posted it for fun but changed my mind laters so I deleted it.

The jewelry store has since deleted the photos of Lee El and the mysterious man’s ring and stated that he was not Kim Jae Wook.
We’ve erased (the photo) in case people will misunderstand. It is not Kim Jae Wook. The photo is of just a ordinary customer.

Despite the explanation, some netizens continue to suspect Kim Jae Wook and Lee El’s relationship.
