"They work in the same industry and have met up on different occasion to discuss work. To say that they went on dates is stretching the truth", a Star J Entertainment representative said.
Earlier in the day, a picture of the two, supposedly on a date, was published by local media. The article stated that the two began dating while the actress was filming the drama "A Thousand Days' Promise" and that they've enjoyed dates at a barbecue restaurant as well as a noodle shop.The two were also spotted in "couple gear", wearing identical hats.
"It's true that the two have shared rides and this could have made it look as if they were together. However, the two have a strictly work-based relationship from having worked together", Soo-ae's agency said.
