Gong Yoo reportedly became the latest red scarf owner to date, Taylor Swift.
Swift has been busy these past weeks even after dropping her most-awaited Red (Taylor's Version), including her 2012 anthem, All Too Well. As usual, the pop star dedicated the song to one of his exes, Jake Gyllenhaal, who famously shared a red scarf with her during their short-term relationship.
Unfortunately, Gyllenhaal and Swift did not last that long that they split shortly after the singer's birthday party in Nashville.
As Swift prepares more for her new re-recordings, more rumors started swirling around their names – and one of which involved Goblin's star, Gong Yoo.
Gong Yoo Reportedly Dated Taylor Swift For Upcoming Project
This week, rumors bombarded the social media, claiming someone saw the Korean actor having a cozy date with the Teardrops On My Guitar hitmaker in New York City. One buzz said Gong Yoo had been selected to play the role of Swift's love interest in her Wildest Dreams music video.
Another rumor said Gong Yoo was wearing a red scarf like what he wore on the Korean series during the meeting.

"Source: Taylor Swift has cast South Korean actor Gong Yoo as her love interest for her 'Wildest Dreams' music video. They recently had dinner together at Tribeca restaurant Locanda Verde and I'm told they looked VERY cozy together," one Twitter user said.
The reports also clarified that the date was only a friendly and professional one, as the pop star only wanted to work with him.
Fans immediately approved the idea of seeing Gong Yoo appear in Swift's music video. Some even suggested the actor wear the same scarf while doing his role with the singer.
Are Reports True?
While the plan might be a hit, Gong Yoo's agency already clarified that the rumors are not true.
In a statement to MK Sports (via Naver) on Friday, Management Scoop revealed that Gong Yoo had not recently visited New York City. It added that the actor has been staying in South Korea to prepare for the premiere of his new Netflix series, The Silent Sea, after becoming part of the Korean flick Squid Game.
In addition, Swift seemingly would not have any plans on creating a music video for Wildest Dreams for now as she had already dropped Taylor's Version of the song in September.
The pop star established new margins for fans, but it would not allow herself to work on a project repeatedly for now.
