'A Business Proposal': Ahn Hyo-seop sings a duet with Kim Se-jeong amid dating rumors
Rumors claim that Ahn Hyo-seop has been dating actress Park Ji-hyun for the last five years as the actor trends for his duet with Kim Se-jeong
While Ahn Hyo-seop is topping Twitter trends, all thanks to the rising popularity of ‘A Business Proposal’, fans of the show have another reason to celebrate. The K-drama's main lead couple have finally fulfilled their promise to fans to sing an OST single from the show. K-dramas are seeing an all-time high, just like K-pop and Netflix is one of the biggest reasons why. With the 'Saturday-Sunday' K-dramas, like ‘Twenty One Twenty Five’ and ‘Forecasting Love and Weather,’ ending on April 4, fans can only rely on the 12-episode show, ‘A Business Proposal’.
The show is on its final leg with only the last two episodes that will air today (April 4) and tomorrow (April 5). So fans are glad that the main leads, actors Ahn Hyo-seop and Kim Se-jeong, sang the OST single ‘Love, Maybe,’ ahead of the airing of the penultimate episode. On April 4, SBS posted the video of both of them singing the OST single on their YouTube channel and the video instantaneously went viral.

While Kim Se-jeong singing the OST is not a shocker, given the fact that she is a K-pop idol and member of the girl group Gugudan, fans were stunned to hear Ahn Hyo-seop’s mellow vocals. Hyo-seop was in the news for stating that he was going to debut with members of GOT7 but did not do so only because he lacked in talent and was extremely tall which had fans rolling on the floor, laughing. On March 25, both actors promised fans that as soon as the newer episodes got 10% nationwide ratings, the two of them would perform ‘A Business Proposal’s OST single ‘Love, Maybe,’ which was originally sung by MeloMance for the show.
The show immediately saw a rise in ratings and surpassed the original 10% promised mark by scoring 11.6% nationwide ratings for the two episodes from March 28 and 29, individually. Keeping their promise to fans as they were sad about the bittersweet ending of the show, Ahn Hyo-seop and Kim Se-jeong made fans swoon with their rendition of the hit OST single.
