The agency of Liu Wen, a top Chinese model, officially denied rumours on Monday that she is dating K-pop boyband Super Junior's Choi Si Won, according to a local media outlet.
Recently, during a Chinese entertainment programme, the host asked Liu whether the rumours were true, but she chose to avoid the mischievous question and told the audience: "Did you eat? If you didn't, the cook will provide you meals."
Chinese netizens claimed that as the Chinese pronunciation for "cook" and Choi's Chinese name sound similar, Liu had admitted her romantic relationship with Choi in a roundabout way.
"It's hard to understand how people thought Liu indirectly acknowledged that she is dating Choi. Though the two acted as a couple in a TV programme, they are not a real couple," said an official from the model's agency.
The two were featured in the Chinese version of the Korean reality TV show We Got Married for about three months, from April to July.
