Actress Han Chae-ah admitted she is seeing the son of Korean football legend Cha Bum-kun about a week after she denied the dating rumors.
Speculation arose after Han posted several intimate photos of her and Cha's second son Cha Se-jji on her social networking account.
When the rumors spread early this month Han's management agency denied them immediately, saying that they just have known each other for a long time.
In a press event for Han's new film on Wednesday, she abruptly brought up the rumors.
"I tend not to share many details about my private life with my agency, and there was a miscommunication between me and the agency," Han said. "I felt so bad after lying about it. I am sorry once again. We are in a good relationship."
She added she didn't want to inconvenience Cha and his family, as they might get too much public attention.
Her latest film "Part-time Spy" is a comedy about undercover spies and is set to be released next week.
