Following its leading lady Kim Tae Hee's marriage announcement with singer Rain on Tuesday (Jan 17), its leading man Joo Won confirmed on Wednesday that he is in a relationship with K-pop star Bo A.
A local media outlet reported that the two met through mutual friends at a networking event, and that they have been seeing each other since the end of last year.
He is starring in the remake of "My Sassy Girl," which is slated to air in May.
According to the reports on local Korean media, actor Joo Won and singer-actor Bo A have been dating for more than a year after meeting at a friend's gathering.
The pair is confirmed to be in a relationship and have been dating since late 2016.
Following Kim Tae-hee and Rain's marriage announcement Tuesday, Joo Won, who played the male lead next to Kim in 2015 TV show "Yongpal," confirmed Wednesday that he is in a relationship with Bo A.
They are a couple envied by everyone around them," said one insider. He is best known for starring in King of Baking, Kim Takgu, Ojakgyo Family, Bridal Mask, Good Doctor, Yong-pal, and Fatal Intuition.
Joo Won's label, Huayi Brothers, has since stepped up coolly (and quickly) to confirm the news, adding, "The length of their relationship is a personal matter, so we did not inquire about it separately." Kwon Boa, commonly stylized and known by her stage name Bo A, is a South Korean singer and actress active in South Korea and Japan.
