Actor Lee Min-ho and actress Park Shin-hye, co-stars of last year’s smash hit drama “The Inheritors,” have denied rumors of being in a romantic relationship.
Several Chinese media outlets reported on Sunday that the two have been dating secretly for the past two months, having fallen for each other while working on “The Inheritors” together.
However, an official with Park’s agency Salt Entertainment said, “I think the groundless news got reported because they are popular in China. Our Chinese agency is taking the appropriate measures [to take care of the rumors] there right now.”
Lee’s agency Starhaus Entertainment dismissed the reports as well, saying they “contain completely groundless information.”
Lee and Park, who played lovers in “The Inheritors,” have been two of the most popular Korean actors in the China region. Accordingly, the show itself is also said to have been popular in the country recently as well.
