Actor Baek Yoon-sik, 66, is dating a TV reporter almost 30 years his junior, which has caused some of his friends to express concern about the couple's significant age gap.
According to his management agency Namoo Actors on Friday, they first met in summer 2012 through mutual acquaintances when Baek was working on a project for a terrestrial TV station. They have no plans to get married at this point, it added.
Baek has two sons, Do-bin and Seo-bin, both of whom are actors from his previous marriage. The former's wife, Jug Si-ah, is also an actress. They were already aware of Baek's relationship and are supportive of it, the agency said.
Having played leading and supporting roles in various films, Baek recently appeared in "The Face Reader" alongside Kim Hye-soo, Lee Jung-jae and Song Kang-ho. The movie has already drawn 200 million moviegoers since it was released last Wednesday.
