Recent reports suggested that the two began their romance two years ago while co-staring on the drama “Pots of Gold,” and that their relationship has continued to progress. The report noted that Park Seo Jun recently moved to Geumho-dong, the neighborhood in Seoul where Baek Jin Hee lives, and that the two had been seen enjoying dates together.
The two actors grew in popularity through their roles as a young couple on “Pots of Gold,” and last year speculation that they were dating began to arise. However, both denied such claims by stating that they were “just friends.” The new reports of their relationship have similarly been met with refreshed denials from both camps, as each actor’s agency has once again refuted the claims.
The actors’ agencies both dismissed the latest report, saying, “Both are too busy to meet because of filming schedules.” They also downplayed Park Seo Jun’s recent move to Geumho-dong, saying that he moved there last summer and that a large number of celebrities resided in the area, flatly refusing the claim that he had moved there to be close to Baek Jin Hee.
Park Seo Joon’s agency KeyEast stated to news outlet Newsen on January 6, “They grew closer through the drama, and it is true that they are keeping in touch as like-minded friends. While they do occasionally meet up for a cup of tea, that does not mean they are dating. Due to being friends, they feel comfortable with each other also outside of work.”
