Are you a fan of the Korean series Reply 1988? If you are, then we've got good news for you! Just today, lead actor Ryu Jun Yeol’s agency C-JeS Entertainment confirmed the reports that he is officially dating his previous leading lady and current member of girl group Girl's Day, Hyeri!
Dating rumors started circulating around the internet on August 15 when Korean website Dispatch released some exclusive photos of the two on their dates. Despite their long padded jackets and masks to disguise themselves, people were still able to recognize the two because of their distinctive features.
C-JeS Entertainment released this statement as they confirm the dating rumors between the actor and pop singer: “Ryu Jun Yeol and Hyeri recently progressed from being friends to a couple, and they are still in the early stages of their relationship. We apologize to the fans for these surprise dating reports.”
They added, “We ask that people watch over them warmly as their relationship is still in the early stages. Thank you.”
DreamT Entertainment, Girl's Day's management, also confirmed the news and said, “We checked with Hyeri, and we can confirm that Hyeri and Ryu Jun Yeol are currently dating, progressing from being friends to being in a relationship. As their relationship is still quite new, we ask that people watch over them warmly.”
The lovebirds met and became close friends on the set of Korean drama Reply 1988, where Ryu Joon Yeol's character served as one of the top two candidates as Hyeri's character's potential husband.
He might not have become Hyeri's husband on the show, but clearly, he has won her heart IRL! We're so excited for these happy couple and we just can't help but wish them all the best!
