Another Korean bachelor is off the market: Chinese actress-singer Liu Yifei is currently dating South Korean oppa Song Seung Heon, as confirmed by the latter’s agency.
The When A Man Loves actor and A Chinese Fairy Tale actress, who are 11 years apart, starred as lovers in the 2014 Chinese-Korean movie The Third Way of Love and their relationship has since blossomed into a real romance.
After checking with 38-year-old Seung Heon himself, the actor’s agency confirmed that the pair are in a relationship, stating, “Song Seung Hoon and Liu Yifei just started dating and are in the early stages of just getting to know each other.”
“After wrapping up their shoots (for The Third Way of Love), they were not able to see each other very often. However, they still continued to keep in touch and their relationship soon began.”
Although sources claimed that they visited the 27-year-old actress’ vacation home and that Seung Heon’s already met the family, the rumours were denied by Seung Heon’s agency: “They have not met each other’s parents and have not discussed about marriage yet.”
Seung Heon, who attended Bae Yong Joon’s wedding last week explained that he “really wants to get married” as well.
Some netizens believe that the two are simply trying to create publicity for the movie, but others showed their support for the budding couple with well wishes online.
