The stars of "Crash Landing on You," Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin, have admitted they are in a relationship after falling in love on the set of the hit soap.
Son wrote on Instagram on the New Year's Day, "So it happened. I find it so embarrassing to share the news about my private life for the first time. I'm grateful to have a good person in my life, and I will try my best to nurture this relationship."
Hyun Bin's agency said, "The two developed feelings for each other while working together for the series and started dating after it ended."
They share a love of golf, and the fact that they work in the same industry helped them understand each other better.
Hyun Bin and Son first met on the movie "The Negotiation" released in 2018 and were seen stepping out several times, sparking rumors of a possible romance, but their agencies kept denying them and insisting that they are just good friends.
"Crash Landing on You" wrapped in February last year and re-lit Korean Wave in Japan. It was streamed on Netflix in over 190 countries and made it to the Top 10 in many of them including Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand.
Hyun Bin made his debut in 2003 and soon rose to stardom with MBC drama "Ireland" in 2004. He has since starred in many TV series and films, maintaining his top star status for almost two decades.
Son also became an instant star when she debuted in a starring role in a TV series in 2001. She has since worked both in TV and film and remained one of Korea's top actresses.
