Lee Dong Gun and Jo Yoon Hee are dating. The couple's agencies have confirmed the relationship reports.

Dong Gun's agency FNC Entertainment and Yoon Hee's agency King Kong by Starship released a statement on their love life. The note read: "The two of them developed romantic feelings and began dating near the end of 'Laurel Tree Tailors.' Please support them."

Dong Gun and Yoon Hee were co-stars in the drama Laurel Tree Tailors. The show's last episode aired on February 26. A source told AllKpop: "It has been discovered that the two people have just started dating. It's too early to talk about marriage as of right now. It is a time where we must congratulate the two in starting a new relationship."

This comes days after the 36-year-old actor and K-pop group T-ara's Jiyeon announced that they have parted ways after almost a year and a half of dating.

The breakup news was confirmed by Gun's label which blamed their busy schedule for the split. The statement read: "It's true that they've broken up. It happened recently. The two became busy, and naturally drifted apart. They've been focusing on their drama filming and such."

An industry source stated to Soompi: "They recently decided to end their relationship as a couple and remain as colleagues. They separated naturally just like any ordinary couple would because they were unable to meet up frequently due to their busy schedules."
