Han Byul is the latest in a string of Korean idols whose relationships have come to light – Super Junior’s Sungmin, f(x)’s Sulli, SNSD Girl’s Generations’ members Yoona, Sooyoung, Tiffany, Taeyeon and EXO’s Baekhyun were all revealed to be in relationships over the past year. BIGBANG’s G-Dragon is also rumoured to be dating Japanese model Kiko Mizuhara.

Earlier in August, it was reported that the actress ended her 12-year of relationship with Se7en, a YG artiste who entered army in March. A rep for Han Byul stated that she had “suffered from all the reports about Se7en” and “their relationship deteriorated”. Thus, they have decided to become friends.

While trying to move on from her past relationship, the actress got a role in a Korean drama series called “Well Brought Up Daughter Hana”. As fate would have it, that’s exactly where she met current boyfriend, Jung Eun Woo. It was revealed that the actor helped her get through the tough times she was having during the filming.

Various actress’ reps also confirmed that their friendship eventually grew into romance while they were filming the series together:

After confirming with Park Han Byul, we found out that she and Jung Eun Woo became close while filming together. They naturally began to grow feelings for one another and the two became a couple.

The Fact has also released some exclusive photos from the two’s alleged date that took place on 15th Dec.

Not long after the report, Jung Eun Woo’s agency confirmed that the actor is indeed dating Park Han Byul.

They confirmed the report through a simple statement here:

It’s true they filmed the drama and became close. It hasn’t been long since they started seeing each other, so please watch over them fondly.

Congrats to the new couple!
