According to SBS Entertainment Sports, the two went from acquaintances to lovers in July while they were filming the KBS drama “Shark” together. Although the drama had a sad ending, it looks like there was much happier ending for the two costars. The romance between the two actors was already known by the staff members of their drama and movie. A close acquaintance of both revealed, “They quickly became close during the drama filming. It seems that they developed deep feelings for each other as they played tragic lovers.”
While they saw each other naturally on the drama set, they also spent their spare time to meet up. They secretly had their dates in areas around their homes. They also had a date in Japan, after the two had wrapped up filming their drama.
After their drama, they ended up on the same set again, this time for a movie. The two will play the leading roles in the Korean “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, “Pirates.” It is said Son Ye Jin played a part in the casting of Kim Nam Gil. A representative of the movie said, “There was actually another actor we were considering for the role, along with Kim Nam Gil, but the staff was divided. Then, Son Ye Jin positively recommended Kim Nam Gil, so the decision was made.”
A wedding could possibly be in the future for the couple as well. In an interview for her movie “Accomplice” Son Ye Jin said,” After a close friend of mine got married, I am more interested in marriage. I want to get married before I turn 34.” During the press conference for the same movie, Kim Nam Gil made a surprise appearance to cheer loudly for Son Ye Jin.
With all of this being reported by SBS Entertainment Sports, the actors’ respective agencies were quick to deny through an official statement.
In a phone interview, a representative of Son Ye Jin’s agency, M Steam Entertainment, said, “The rumor that the two are dating is absurd. They are absolutely not in a romantic relationship. It is true that the two became closer through their drama and movie filming. However, if they really were dating they would be honest about it.”
Kim Nam Gil’s agency, Star J Entertainment, said, “He is absolutely not dating Son Ye Jin. This is absurd.”
