Joey King and Jacob Elordi Reflect on ‘Brutal’ Pressure of Dating in the Public Eye

Joey King and Jacob Elordi are no strangers to the brutality of dating in the public eye. The co-actors who reunite for the second part of their Netflix hit Kissing Booth, know from their experience.

The couple dated each other for over a year before breaking up in 2018. In an interview with ET, Joey says everybody wants to know what your business. She continues saying it is interesting that people think you owe them an explanation but she says she understands.

The actress says she has gone through some stuff publicly and privately and its all about finding balance. She continued, “And it can be brutal, but you know happy endings do come to those who are patient.”

Meanwhile for Jacob, he admits to being bothered initially that people would pay so much attention to his dating life. He says just the fact that somebody he does not know, knows his name is disembodying. But he says it has nothing to do with him.

Jacob explains to ET, “Imagine the store around the corner from where you are now. Whatever people are talking about is not your business, it’s kind of how it feels. Unfortunately, it just has my name involved in it but it literally has nothing to do with me. It just doesn’t affect the trajectory of my life. So I just kind of ignore it.”

Jacob has sparked romance rumors with Euphoria co-star, Zendaya. They were spotted hanging out together and sharing a kiss.

However, Jacob and Joey have people talking about their relationship once again. In Kissing Booth 2, Jacob’s character Noah and Joey’s character Elle, are still going strong. However, in the film, it appears they are struggling as they try to make their long-distance relationship work. On top of that, Elle sees her friendship with her BFF, Lee Flynn (Joel Courtney) changing. Her character also develops a crush on a new classmate named Marco (Taylor Zakhar Perez), causing all sorts of chaos and confusion in her life.

On being asked if the couple is going strong in the movie, Joey said she doesn’t know. She says her character always used to say that in the movie but things change and things happen. The actress says she does not know where their journey is going but she is excited to see Elle and Noah again. Joey says, “I think Noah and Elle are iconic and I think it’s exciting for fans to be able to see them again.”
