It was reported on September 11 that the two actors, both represented by Namoo Actors, were seen riding in a black Porsche together in Apgujeong, Seoul. The source explained that they had acted very much like a couple, and mentioned how Lee Jun Ki had caressed Jeon Hye Bin’s face.
Namoo Actors has now stepped forward to deny the dating rumors, explaining that the former co-stars are simply good friends. “The two are close. And it’s not only them but the whole ‘Joseon Gunman‘ cast is close knit. They are definitely not dating,” an agency rep stated to Daily Sports on September 13.
This is the third time for Lee Jun Ki and Jeon Hye Bin to make the headlines after being spotted together in public, raising suspicion of a relationship. The rumors first appeared in June and resurfaced in August, only to be denied by their agency.
