Screen stars Jo In Sung and Kim Min Hee are an item! Agencies for the couple this morning confirmed that the actors have been dating since January.
The pair - both 31 - were photographed on an April 17 Seoul date, but did their best to keep the relationship a secret. An onlooker tells IdolWow!: "They met up after work and took sepearate cars to go on a date. They made sure they weren't seen in the car park at the same time. It was all very discreet."
Now a rep for Jo, who recently stared in SBS TV drama That Winter, admits: "We have checked [with the Jo In Sung], and found out that the two met up early this year by chance. While keeping in touch, they started to feel affection for each other."
"As it hasn't been long since the two have entered their relationship, we would be thankful if you would look on with kind eyes and kind interests. We are sincerely sorry their relationship wasn't revealed first by those involved, but through the press."
Adds a source close to Kim: "It's very early to call it a serious relationship, but they are enjoying the time they spend together and finding they have more and more things in common.
"[Min Hee] says she is at the age where she wants to find someone to settle down with, so we are all very happy for her."
The two stars first met ten years ago while working as modes but it was only in January they became romantic. Beyond their shared fashion industry roots, the lovebirds share similar interests and lifestyles having started their careers around the same time in 2000. Kim's recent movie Very Ordinary Couple has so far sold an astonishing 1.8 million theater tickets.
