Earlier today, the two actors’ dating rumors hit the wire. But within minutes, their agencies quickly denied the reports. They stated that they are only “good colleagues” and added, “the news even flustered the actors.”
However, according to Dispatch, Seo Ji Hye and Kim Jung Hyun’s love seems ongoing. Since the series ended, the two became an item for about a year. They turned the sad ending in the show into a happy ending in real life.
The two actors frequented each other’s home, which is only 10 minutes apart. (Kim Jung Hyun became Seo Ji Hye’s neighbor last year.)
Dispatch spotted their date multiple times. Kim started to walk first, and Seo followed him. The two lovebirds went on a date outside of Seoul too. In such cases, Seo Ji Hye was the one behind the wheels. A close acquaintance confirmed, “The two spend birthdays together. They spend a lot of time together.”
Their relationship began in 2016 when they first met in the drama Jealousy Incarnate. Then they reunited in the 2019 drama Crash Landing On You. And the following year, the two became lovers.
Seo is like an older-sister-like girlfriend to Kim. The two actors’ friends told Dispatch, “Kim Jung Hyun went through difficult times. And when he met Seo Ji Hye, he started to open his heart for her.”
Seo Ji Hye’s agency Culture Depot defined the two actors as “colleagues.” Other words they chose were “flustered” and “not true at all.”
However, what they told Dispatch was different. “Kim Jung Hyun will be leaving his agency soon. He talked about moving to a different agency with Seo Ji Hye. Because of COVID-19, the two discussed it at their homes.”
