Collective sigh, CGs: Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk, the ~swag~ couple we fell in love with in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, just made their real-life relationship official!
In what could just be the cutest press release ever, the pair’s joint agency, YG Entertainment, revealed, “After checking with Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk, they confirmed that after being close friends since their modeling days, the pair recently developed romantic feelings for one another and are dating well now.” Aaw!
While we don’t know exactly when these romantic feelings developed, social media can be pretty telling. In fact, given how adorable these two are on Instagram, we probably should have known all along!

“See you tonight <3,” Sung Kyung wrote to accompany this couple selfie. And fine, she did follow it up with the hashtag #Weightlifter, but we can dream, right?

Nam Joo Hyuk finally breaks up his Instagram feed for a screenshot from Weightlifting Fairy of him hugging his noona. We think that series of emojis says it all.
