It was recently announced that Kim Go Eun split with boyfriend Shin Ha Kyun after dating for eight months. Immediately reports started circulating that the break-up was caused by the actress' closeness with Goblin co-star Gong Yoo.

However, Go Eun's agency HODU&U Entertainment denied all the reports. The label said: "There are some who are questioning her relationship with Gong Yoo, but there's nothing. That's just tabloid news with no evidence."

"They just had good chemistry for the drama. She and Shin Ha Kyun broke up because of their schedule, not because of someone else," the note read.

Go Eun had received huge applause for her portrayal of Ji Eun Tak, the Goblin's bride in the tvN series. During an appearance on Happy Together, she admitted modelling wasn't for her. She said: "I only modelled for a short time because I felt like I wasn't cut out for the job, standing still, while the photographer took photos felt extremely awkward."

The South Korean beauty had rejoined Instagram, and the first photo she shared was of hers with Gong Yoo. In the image, the two are dressed for their wedding scene in the drama. She wrote: "I was happy and thankful. #Goblin."
