Kang Ha Neul has been the talk of town due to the media reports regarding his romantic relationship with musical actor Lee Tae Eun. However, His management agency has immediately refuted the rumors.
On April 5, Star Daily News reported exclusively, citing one of Kang Ha Neul’s acquaintances as its source, that the actor had been dating Lee Tae Eun for two years. “He first met her through the 2018 musical Shinheung Military Academy. They recently went on a trip together,” the source said.
On the contrary, an official from Kang’s agency TH Company stated that the two actors aren’t in a romantic relationship. “It’s true that Kang Ha Neul and Lee Tae Eun went on a trip together, but they’re just close colleagues. Four to five other co-stars of Shinheung Military Academy accompanied them on the trip,” the official explained.
Kang Ha Neul and Lee Tae Eun starred together in Shinheung Military Academy from 2018 to 2019, respectively playing the main roles of Paldo and Napal. Shinheung Military Academy is a musical about the same-named military school that was established in reality to train the Korean armed forces who would fight against the colonial administration of imperial Japan. Meanwhile, Kang Ha Neul has been continuing to shoot his new film Story of You and the Rain.
