South Korean actor Lee Dong-gun and actress Cho Youn-hee, who played a fictional couple in a recent TV series, are dating in real life, according to Lee's management agency Tuesday. "The two have formed a good relationship while filming and have developed into a couple recently," Lee's agency FNC Entertainment said. According to KINGKONG Entertainment, which represents Cho, the two are "about a week into their relationship."
The 37-year-old Lee and the 35-year old Cho appeared as a couple in KBS 2TV's weekend series "The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop." In the drama which ended on Sunday, the on-air couple ends up getting married.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Lee broke up with idol singer Jiyeon after seeing her for two years. FNC Entertainment said then that the two were naturally drawn apart from each other due to their hectic schedules.
Lee debuted in 1998 and has starred in various films and series ever since, including the 2004 mega hit romantic drama "Lovers in Paris." Cho debuted in 2002 through the sitcom "Orange" and has appeared in a number of TV shows throughout the years.Why are they announcing it if it's only a week old?
