Descendants of the Sun co-stars Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo are not dating. The 34-year-old actress rubbished reports that the two are romantically involved, off screen.

Rumours that they are dating started after the two were reportedly seen together in New York. Joong-ki's agency confirmed that the couple are not an item in real life. The statement from UAA Korea read: "Song Joong-ki is her good colleague with whom she's done a TV series together."

"She was on vacation in New York and Song Joong Ki happened to be there. They had a meal with other friends, and we cannot believe it has turned into a scandal. There is no need for us to consider it seriously. We will take it as a sign of fans' interests. That story has been going around for a long time now. Media outlets have asked us about it and we have told them many times that it is not true," the letter read.

In the hit drama, Joong Ki plays the lead role as Captain Yoo Shi Jin, and Hye Kyo reprises the role of doctor named Kang Mo-Yeon. Descendants of the Sun airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 22:00 (Korean Time).
