Is So Ju Yeon dating Kim Min Jae in real-life?
In a recent interview, the 26-year-old actress shared details about the various methods she used to make her feeling look "genuine" while filming romantic scenes with Kim Min Jae. The actress said she had to put in a lot of efforts to make her feelings look real as she is "not talented at acting".
"So when I film a sweet, romantic scene, I listen to a lot of romantic music and try to prepare myself as much as possible. I try to style my hair as prettily and neatly as possible, and I work hard to make my own heart flutter," Soompi quoted the 26-year-old actress.

Actor Kim Min Jae also said it was not really easy to make his onscreen relationship with So Ju Yeon look real in Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim season 2. In order to encourage the viewers glued to the storyline, the cast members had to post some sweet photos and videos on Instagram.
"We are close friends. We took photos to encourage people to tune in, so we just took them while discussing, 'What should we post this week?' After seeing the response, the people on set jokingly said, 'Good luck, you two. Aren't you two dating?' but I was thankful because it meant we acted that well, and she was a really good [acting] partner," the 23-year-old actor said.
