On September 22, the actors were present at a press conference on the set of their drama. During the event, Ha Seok Jin commented, “After [our drama] got broadcasted, many people around me became interested in Yoo Joo Hee’s beauty. One individual asked, “Are you going to be a couple with the nurse [Yoon Joo Hee] from ‘D-Day?”
It appears as though his remark sparked rumors of a romantic relationship with his co-star. A representative from his agency stated, “Reports stating that he has acknowledged dating Yoon Joo Hee have absolutely no truth to them. This [misunderstanding] arose because a news outlet misheard what he said on September 22 at the set.”
The representative continued, “Ha Seok Jin is in a sticky situation because of the shocking implication, but he is currently giving his all filming for the drama.”
Yoon Joo Hee’s agency also firmly denied the dating rumors.
