It’s #TeamJungHwan after all.
Although I didn’t watch Reply 1988, I was well aware of the mass heartbreak that occurred when Deok Sun and Jung Hwan didn’t end up together. But because the gods are as generous as Oprah, everyone gets a happy ending! The Deok Sun/Taek shippers get the husband and happy ending on the show while the Deok Sun/Jung Hwan shippers get to see their doppelgangers together because their portrayers Ryu Jun Yeol and Lee Hye Ri are dating! It’s win-win all around.
Shortly after Dispatch broke the news on August 16th, Ryu Jun Yeol’s agency had this to say:
“Hello, this is C-JeS Entertainment. We are writing about Ryu Joon Yeol and Hyeri’s dating news. Recently, Ryu Joon Yeol and Hyeri moved on from being friends to lovers, and are dating carefully. We are sorry to fans for this sudden dating news coming out. The two have just started dating recently, so we hope you support them warmly. Thank you.“
I’m going deaf from the sound of champagne corks popping!
As big fans of love, we celebrate this news and wish them nothing but good luck and happiness in their relationship.
