True stardom came to Song in late 2000, with the broadcast of the hugely popular TV drama Autumn in My Heart.
The romantic melodrama series was a ratings success, pioneering a trend in Korean melodramatic series and launching a fever that is commonly referred to as the "Korean Wave" and leading to Song becoming a Hallyu star.
Dating rumors linked him with Lee, as well as actresses Son Dam Bi, Kim Tae Hee and Song Hye Kyo but most of those rumors were probably prompted by onscreen chemistry.
While the rush of recent celebrity weddings has prompted Song Seung Hun to think about marriage, he admits that he is still not ready.
For a start, he hasn't met the right girl and his dating style may be part of the problem.
Yoo Dong Geun finished by saying, "I thought that it would be really great if they were really together because of their reactions.
So I kept trying to matchmake them from the side continously." During the days when East of Eden were on air, rumors were flying around that Lee Yeon Hee (21) and Song Seung Hun (32) were dating on and off screen although both of them denied in separate statements that they were[n't] as they were very busy.
They were asked the usual “which girl is your ideal type” question, and Song Seung Heon winnowed down his list until he ended up picking Kim Tae Hee.
