Actress Kim Hye-soo and actor Yu Hae-jin have finally made it official that they are dating. Rumors of their relationship surfaced several times since 2008, but both had denied them.
"Kim and Yu developed an intimate friendship after realizing that they share an interest in culture and the arts," Kim's management agency Apple of the Eye said in a press release on Monday.
"Kim found the humble and humane side of Yu attractive, and the relationship naturally developed from friendship to romance." As for marriage, however, "the couple has no plans," Apple of the Eye said.
The two first met while shooting the film "Kick the Moon" in 2001, and grew closer while filming "War of Flower" in 2006.
Yu started his acting career on stage, and established himself as a supporting character actor, appearing in "At the Gas Station," "Jail Breakers," and "The King and the Clown." He starred in "Small Town Rivals" in 2007 and "The Truck" in 2008.
Kim was a famous child actress in the 1980s and is currently one of the top actresses in Korea, active in both TV dramas and films.
