This seems to be the actor’s stand in the controversy following his announcement of marriage and pregnancy. While many congratulated the couple, many drama fans expressed their disappointment. They claimed his marriage broke their immersion in the BL (Boy’s Love) drama, calling it a “betrayal.” Some even have taken to leaving nasty comments on his and Uhm Hyun Kyung’s personal social media accounts.
Meanwhile, Unintentional Love Story tells the story of two men whose love story goes from fake to real. The series has been simulcast on the global platform iQIYI and Japan’s OTT service Rakuten, garnering considerable international attention. The movie version is set to hit theaters in mid-June.
Additionally, with this overwhelming response, a spin-off of Unintentional Love Story has been confirmed. Number Three Pictures will begin filming in the second half of this year with plans to release it next year.
