Lee Do Hyun and Lim Ji Yeon are reportedly in a relationship!
On April 1, Dispatch reported that the two “The Glory” co-stars began dating after meeting on the set of their hit drama. According to the report, the couple first became interested in one another after a cast trip last summer.
Dispatch also published photos that it claims are of the two actors traveling to and from dates together. One set of photos is said to be of the couple in the parking lot of Lee Do Hyun’s apartment building, where they reportedly took photos of a small snowman that they made together after placing it on top of Lee Do Hyun’s car.
According to Dispatch, Lee Do Hyun personally escorted Lim Ji Yeon home after a “The Glory” cast-and-crew dinner in January that was attended by fellow cast members Song Hye Kyo, Park Sung Hoon, Yeom Hye Ran, Jung Sung Il, Kim Hieora, Cha Joo Young, and Kim Gun Woo, as well as the drama’s writer Kim Eun Sook. He is also said to have referred to himself as “Lim Ji Yeon’s manager,” and the report suggests that their actual managers were aware of their relationship.
Additionally, the couple is reported to have enjoyed a sweet chocolate date together on White Day (a romantic holiday celebrated in Korea on March 14) in Lee Do Hyun’s neighborhood.
Both Lee Do Hyun’s and Lim Ji Yeon’s agencies have since responded to the report by stating that they are in “in the midst of checking” whether it’s true.
