Stars of Popular Soap Fall in Love

Fictional romance has spilled over into real life again, with actors Nam Sang-mi and Lee Sang-yun, a physics student at Seoul National University, saying they are in love.

The two played a couple in the 2010 SBS TV drama "Life is Beautiful," and they have been in relationship for six months.

Nam's management agency DVS Korea said, "The two actors had special feelings for each other during the shoot and have cautiously begun a relationship."

Nam has been mulling her next move since "Life is Beautiful" finished, and Lee is taking time off after "The Duo" ended this month.
