When posed the question, Hyun Bin had said that he along with Son Ye Jin had laughed it (rumor) off. She said that it did not affect them negatively or inconvenience them during shooting. "We worked together and, we were friends because of the work," Hyun Bin had said.
Reacting to the question, Son Ye Jin also said she wanted to work in a romantic comedy drama with Hyun Bin. She just thought that it would really be nice to work with Hyun Bin again after their movie Negotiation and there was nothing else to their relationship.
