    Actress Kim Soo-hyun, internationally known as Claudia Kim, is in a relationship with a businessman.

    Her agency said Thursday that Kim is dating Matthew Shampine, general manager of WeWork Korea. The two first met early this year at an event hosted by WeWork, a New York-based company that provides shared workspaces.

    "They are still getting to know each other based on mutual trust. We ask fans to respect their privacy and give them warm support," the agency said.

    After winning a supermodel contest, Kim made her acting debut in a TV series in 2006. She has also expanded her career internationally since 2014, taking part in film and TV projects in the U.S., including the TV series "Marco Polo" and Marvel superhero film "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

    Shampine was born in Korea but adopted by American parents as a baby. He found his biological parents in 2007, 25 years after he was adopted, and received a Korean name, Cha Min-geun.
