February is indeed the month of hearts as a second reel-to-real couple emerges. A number of photos of Korean actor Joo Jin Mo (42) and Chinese actress Zhang Li (32) on vacation in Japan are making the rounds online.
Both played a married couple in the c-drama Honey, I'm Sorry which completed filming in early 2016. Despite paparazzi photos implying that something was going on between them since last year, Joo Jin Mo who has never admitted to a relationship with anyone before maintained that they were just good friends. That was then...
On Feb. 15, he thanked China's number one paparazzo Zhuo Wei for his hard work and said that he will protect Zhang Li well. He also posted some goofy selfies from their Japan trip and if that is not a confession, I don't know what is.
After Song Seung Heon and Crystal Liu, Joo Jin Mo and Zhang Li are the third Korean-Chinese celebrity couple that I'm hearing about though I wouldn't be surprised if there were more given the increase in cross-country collaborations. Congrats to the happy couple!
