Star’s Lover Hinting At Bae Yong Joon and Choi Ji Woo Possible Past Romance?

SBS Star’s Lover starring Choi Ji Woo and Yoo Ji Tae started airing a fortnight ago. With regards to the many scenes where Lee Ma Ri (Choi Ji Woo) reminisces about past memories with her first love, many netizens are implying that the unnamed guy who plays her first love and looks like Bae Yong Joon, is implying that Bae Yong Joon and Choi Ji Woo was once romantically involved.

Choi Ji Woo and Bae Yong Joon

The guy who plays Choi Ji Woo’s first love in the drama has been dubbed the “Little Bae Yong Joon” by some. Although he doesn’t show his full face, he does look like Bae Yong Joon from his expressions and from the side view.

Star's Lover Scene

Choi Ji Woo once revealed that Star’s Lover had already been ready for filming 1 year ago. But she had deliberated over taking the role then. She was scared that the many scandals in the drama might be linked by others to that it really happened to Choi Ji Woo in real life. But according to the scriptwriter, the idea of linking Lee Ma Ri to so many men in the drama was to put across the stress that female stars have to face with regards to love scandals.

While Winter Sonata was airing (starring Choi Ji Woo and Bae Yong Joon), the both of them was spotted in Australia, doing the catwalk for a fashion show. Since then, the both of them have avoided appearing in public together.

  1. lmao love how they jump into conclusions like that oh well
    LOVE EM BOTH TOGETHER wintersonata was so gooood.

  2. Just some interesting things that I have noticed that are somehow connected with BYJ : 1) During the stretching scene in episode 2 of Lee Mari, the music that is Moon River. I read that song is one of BYJ’s favorite songs and that he even played that in guitar in ‘Bicycle Thief Cafe’ in Samcheok back in 2006. 2) The title of Lee Mari’s movie in the drama ‘Goodbye My Love’ is the title of BYJ’s one and only MV with Lee Na Young > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_HDwo4QF-w

  3. I read too that both will be working together again in January to start voice recording, as Jun Sang and Yoo Jin, WLS Animation that will be shown on KBS in July 2009.

  4. Yeah i thought he looked a wee bit like SHY ^ and isn’t his hair like that color right now? But that guy up there looks a bit chubbier. Haha.

    Errrr… I dont watch this drama but errrr the isn’t the story revolving around celebrities in ‘general’ who become linked with men in the business? Geez, I bet this is one publicity stunt for people to actually TUNE into the show. It does seem interesting and now I want to watch it!! LOL/.

  5. i’ve been watching the drama and i thought i was the only one who thought that her first love looked like freaking bae yong joon. i wouldn’t go so far as to say that it mirrors her real life, but the semblance is like whoaa…

  6. I thought I was going crazy when I saw the Yong Joon look a like. I don’t think those scenes are referring to a past relationship more like coincidence. People just want to stir things up a bit.

  7. dude, i really dont understand the whole star’s lover thing. what kind of show is it? i thought its some new drama that choi ji woo is in??…& it has some link to reality? what?

  8. All this glamour and beauty from the Far East! I once in a while come here to have a look at this new (to me) young (though ancient) world so exuberant.

    I am a Man from Roma, Italy. Italian people admire beauty wherever they can find it.

  9. I don’t think the two were actually romantically involved so I doubt the resemblance is hinting at anything…as fans, we would LIKE to see the two of them together, just like i’m sure many would have loved it if the goong pair was a couple in reality

  10. i agree too, if you all can see the pic that show they fall in love each other.
    i so upset when they avoided their love.
    what is the matter? they hve not married yet. why not they fall in love together again.
    i have a story telling about their depth love, so when they read the script that i wrote. i hope they want play it.

  11. Both of them have a good chemistry on the screen. Choi Ji Woo and Bae Yong Joon looks good together! I hope it happened and will happened that both of them will be together on screen and real life!

  12. i have watched the film partly.
    i guess he is Bae Yong Jon too!!!
    Choi Ji Woo, u must lose ur love to get it back.
    give up ur love to God, and He will give u
    i know u ar very sad.
    i can differ what the acting or not
    ur face so sad when remember of BYJ.
    BYJ how about u?
    still not confuse about that.
    how sad u are both
    each other love but no chance to be show love.
    what u are look for in this world? love right?

  13. I don’t think Star’s Lover is a story about Choi Ji Woo’s life. Ji woo came from a very close knit family, unlike Mari (the leading lady in Star’s Lover). Just like some of her co-stars stated , Ji Woo is a forthright person (honest), humble & caring. All the rumors that surrounded her are all made up stories by bad media & anti fans who were very jealous of her. One of her anti fan was caught by the police, but Ji Woo forgave her & she didn’t press charges. Just like it was said in Star’s Lover, it’s hard to be an actress in S. Korea. I like Choi Ji Woo & Bae Yong Joon & I hope they collaborate again in another “real” drama not anime. It’s too bad that the media & anti fans caused them to avoid each other. Stop bashing people & go on with your own lives.

  14. Star’s Lover is the best drama I ever seen since Winter Sonata. The chemistry between Choi Ji Woo & Yoo Ji Tae is excellent. Star’s Lover is not about Choi J Woo’s life, it’s just a beautiful drama starring S. Korea’s top star Choi Ji Woo. They picked the right actress for this drama. She’s beautiful, elegant, sophisticated & talented.

    Ji Woo always have great chemistry with her leading men.
    I just hope that the talk about Choi Ji Woo & Bae Yong Joon be buried in the past. Bad media & antifans caused their friendship to demise. People leave them alone.

    I’m very happy that CJW & BYJ will collaborate in the anime sequel of Winter Sonata. It’s just overvoicing their characters.

  22. No need to worry about BYJ and CJW are no longer friends since Winter Sonata era. They recently are working on winter sonata anime. their reunion took place in tokyo dome with 50,000 fans and after seven years, their chemistry is still bubbling over…amazing. They look good together. I miss them so much

  23. they do look good together..really love watching winter sonata over and over again…hope to see them in another drama series soon🙂

  24. byj & cjw are destined to be together in real life. they are soulmate. hope to see them walking down the altar soon. its time for them to be a family and have kids for them to see while they are in there mid & late thirtees. how i wish to see their children in the near future.

  25. my prediction, BYJ and CJW will be married soon in 2012.. they destined for each other..since first love 1996 and ws 2002… keep the faith for both of them..love you both
