Kim Hye-soo admits to dating Yoo Hae-jin

2010/01/04 | Permalink | Source

Top South Korean actress Kim Hye-soo has admitted to dating fellow actor Yoo Hae-jin.

In a statement released on Monday, Kim's agency Apple of the Eye explained that the two "found a friendship based on their mutual interest in the arts and culture" which later "naturally developed into a romantic relationship after Kim discovered Yoo's simplistic and humane personality".

Rumor that the two had been dating for two years had heated up the Internet since the start of the 2010 -- on New Years Day, local sports daily Sports Seoul released a report detailing the relationship between the two actors along with paparazzi photographs the paper had snapped of the couple over a month-long period.

The photos showed the couple meeting in front of or leaving from Kim's house in full disguise. Based on its observation, the paper said the couple met every Friday night together and also spent some weekends together.

The paper also raised speculation that the two may get married soon, as Yoo was seen attending Kim's family gathering in November. Kim's agency, however, played down the assumption, saying in its statement that both actors "have no such plans as of yet".

Rumors of the two dating had circulated since 2008 although representatives for both sides had continuously denied any romantic involvement.

Kim, 40 and Yoo, 41, first appeared together in 2001 film "Kick the Moon" and again in 2006 hit film "Tazza: The High Rollers" ("Tazza: The High Rollers") for which Kim won the award for best actress at the Blue Dragon Awards.

Kim, who has appeared in over a score of movies since her debut in 1986, has won the title of best actress over several occasions. Yoo has also appeared in nearly a dozen films since his debut and is considered one of the top supporting actors in the country.
