Nam Joo-Hyuk is definitely the next internet boyfriend we all deserve! Through his dreamy roles in hit K-dramas like “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo,” “Start-Up,” and “The Light in Your Eyes,” Nam has won over fans’ hearts — myself included. But he’s has taken his dreamboat status to a whole new level through his latest role as Yi-Jin on Netflix‘s romance-drama “Twenty-Five Twenty-One.” Whether it’s his undeniable chemistry with Kim Tae-ri’s Na Hee-Do, the way he blushes adorably in the aspiring fencer’s presence, his sad eyes whenever they’re forced to part ways, or simply his million-dollar smile, Nam is all I can think about ever since the show’s premiere. And naturally, fans are wondering about the Korean heartthrob’s relationship status. Is he still on the market? If so, how?
Despite his magnetic personality, the actor has kept his personal life mostly out of the spotlight. While the model turned actor has been linked to several costars throughout his career, the list of partners he’s actually dated in the public eye is pretty small. Read ahead to learn more about Nam’s past and current romantic relations.

Nam and Lee Sung-Kyung were once signed under the same agency, YG K-Plus, so their friendship goes way back to their early modeling days when they worked on several modeling gigs together and occasionally escorted one another at red carpet events.
Naturally, when the pair were cast as the romantic leads in “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo” in 2016 and grew even closer, dating rumors were bound to take flight. Their convincing chemistry on screen plus their off-set outings (including a date to Coldplay’s concert in Seoul) only fueled the romance theories.
When fan speculation reached a frenzy, the couple finally confirmed their relationship status after filming for “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo” wrapped in 2017.

It is true that they are now in a relationship and happily dating,” their mutual agency, YG Entertainment, said in an April 2017 statement. However, the couple went their separate ways not long after — officially splitting in August that year. “We checked with Nam Joo-Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung, and it is true that the two recently broke up,” YG said in a statement at the time, citing their busy schedules as the reason for their split.
In February 2022, SBS News sparked rumors Nam and Lee had rekindled their relationship, piecing together instances when the pair were reportedly seen wearing matching clothes and accessories, but neither of the actors nor their management company has confirmed or denied the latest speculation.
As of now, Nam is not in a relationship as far as the general public knows. However, we have an idea of what Nam looks for in an ideal partner. In 2017, he told Sports Seoul (via Soompi) he’d like to be with someone who’s an offscreen version of Kim Bok-Joo, the character played by Lee in “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo.” Bok-Joo is a character who is ambitious, is quiet yet charming, and always stands up for what she believes in.
I sincerely hope Nam finds his person!
