Joo Sang Wook has opened up about his relationship with actress Cha Ye Ryun. They duo developed feelings for each other while filming the MBC drama, Glamorous Temptation.

During an interview, the 38-year-old South Korean actor talked about openly dating Ye Ryun. He recalled an incident on how images of the couple going on a trip together was covered by media.

"It was crazy," he said. "There were too many people at the airport. It was because we were on the same plane as GOT7. But while we were waiting to board, someone kept taking photos. We heard the shutter sound going off, but the camera wasn't pointed at GOT7. We wanted to ask them why they were taking photos of us, but it felt weird to tell them to stop. So we just went on our way. Since it was a morning plane and there were no headlines in the afternoon, we thought we overthought things, but then it became an issue by evening."

"The good side of publicly dating is that we can date normally. We can go wherever we want and do whatever we want. People might recognize us, but nobody says anything. Public dating is only uncomfortable if the couple happens to break up later. If we kept hiding our relationship, we wouldn't be able to do anything," he added.

Sang Wook also gushed about his lady love. He said: "It goes without saying that she's different from her image. People think she looks cold on the outside, but she's not like that. She's also the kind of person who prefers traditional markets to going shopping at the mall. We went to those kinds of markets on Jeju Island."

However, the pair do not have plans to tie the knot any time soon. He confessed: "We have nothing planned. Someone asked us about our wedding date and I was dumbfounded. We have no plans for marriage at the moment."
