Hyun Bin and Kang Sora had recently confirmed that they are dating. The couple's respective agencies admitted that they are in a relationship.
Bin's label VAST Entertainment stated: "Back in October, the two actors first met at a meeting regarding business with other staff. Then they remained as good sunbae-hoobaes who shared advice and concerns with each other. They are just now starting their relationship. It's only been a few days since they started seeing each other [as a couple] so they're very cautious about the reports being released at this time. We're even more cautious as their personal matters are being revealed in the midst of a controversial time for the nation. However, please regard them warmly, and give them your support and encouragement for their future acting promotions."
Sora's label Plum Entertainment said: "It's only been about half a month since the two started seeing each other with feelings, so we're very cautious about the reports. Please regard them with generosity."
Following the romance reports, fans of the couple dig out past comments about their ideal type. The 34-year-old actor revealed what he is looking for in a partner before enlisting in the military. He said: "I would like to be with someone who is very understanding. Though there are a lot of people who like my job, there aren't that many people who truly understand what it entails."
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old actress gushed about her ideal type through a fashion magazine interview. She said: "My ideal type is a guy who is like a friend. A guy who shares the same hobbies as me and someone who I can have fun with even when we're just talking."
