Korean Stars Hyun Bin & Son Ye Jin Spotted Together In The U.S.; Deny Dating Rumor Once Again
Just more than a week after denying that they are dating, Korean stars Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin are once again speculated to be an item. This time around, photos of them together in the United States were shared online.
In the photos, the two were spotted spending time together in a grocery store somewhere in the U.S. The Memories Of The Alhambra actor is photographed sporting a baseball cap while pushing a shopping cart while Son is wearing sunglasses and choosing goods from the grocery shelves.
In response to the new dating rumor, Hyun's agency VAST Entertainment confirmed that the two hang out together but they were with some friends. The agency explained that the actor heard that the Something In The Rain actress is currently in the U.S. so they meet up with their other friends. VAST added that Hyun and Son's friendship is just misinterpreted by some.
"The misunderstanding seems to have occurred as the two are close friends of the same age, and it was magnified more because Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin are famous figures. The dating rumors are not true," VAST Entertainment said in a statement (via Soompi).
