CLOY’s Kim Jung Hyun and Seo Ji Hye deny dating rumors
Three months after Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin admitted their relationship, another Crash Landing On You couple is rumored to be continuing their love story off-screen. News outlets say that the hit drama's second lead couple, Seo Ji Hye and Kim Jung Hyun, are rumoured to be dating for over a year now, which their agencies have denied.
“We have checked with her personally, and she said that she is definitely not dating Kim Jung Hyun. We are bewildered,” said a source from Ji Hye’s agency to Edaily.
Jung Hyun’s agency, on the other hand, also commented to YTN Star, “As far as we know, Kim Jung Hyun and Seo Ji Hye are not dating. They are only maintaining a close relationship as senior and junior after working together in tvN’s Crash Landing on You.”
Korean news outlet Dispatch reported that Jung Hyun and Ji Hye, who played South Korean fugitive Gu Seung-jun and North Korean heiress Seo Dan respectively, have been dating since the drama ended last year, saying they were seen on dates at each other's houses in Seongdong-gu District in Seoul, Korea.
“Dispatch has spotted them on their home dates several times. Kim Jung Hyun went first, and Seo Ji Hye followed. They walked with a certain distance between each other," wrote the media outlet.
One acquaintance even revealed to the media outlet that "They would often spend time together with just the two of them, such as spending their birthdays together."
In addition to the news, Sports Chosun reported earlier today, April 8, that Jung Hyun and Ji Hye are in a relationship. After denying the rumors, the actors' agencies have revealed that the meeting was actually to discuss Jung Hyun's transfer to Ji Hye's agency.
Ji Hye's camp, Culture Depot, also revealed to Ilgan Sports that Jung Hyun will not be renewing with his current agency O& Entertainment and so they are "positively discussing an exclusive contract" with the actor.
“Kim Jung Hyun will be a free agent soon. He spoke with Seo Ji Hye about the matter of transferring agencies. Due to COVID-19, they met at home to discuss,” Culture Depot also told Dispatch.
