Golf is definitely one of the go-to sports for several Korean celebrities, with some even landing deals with sports companies.
According to the New York Times, South Korea is the third-largest market for golf worldwide, next to the United States and Japan.
There’s no wonder why Kdrama stars are really fond of these sports since it is not just fun but also challenging.
While we often see celebrities flaunting their trips, these stars chose to spend a lot of time on a golf course.

Before BinJin’s dreamy wedding, the power couple often spends their dates golfing.
In July 2021, months after they confirmed their relationship, they were spotted on the golf course and shopping together for sporting goods.
Interestingly, the actress learned to love the sport because of Hyun Bin.
According to a report, Son ye Jin used to dislike golfing. She tried to learn it at the age of 20 but did not pursue the sport.
However, Hyun Bin made Son Ye Jin fall in love with gold again, and it became their bonding activity.
In her Kdrama comeback “Thirty-Nine,” her character, Cha Mi Jo, is an avid fan of golf and set to take a sabbatical to the US to practice her skills.

Besides her new Kdrama, film, and CFs, Park Min Young often shares a sneak peek of her hobby-playing golf.
On the other hand, some speculated that the actress and Park Seo Joon, who both starred in “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim,” have started dating, and golfing was one of their activities.
It came after the Hallyu actor revealed in Elle Korea that he had just recently started playing the sport. With this, the public thought that it was Park Min Young who introduced the sport to the actor.
