Actor Byeon Woo-seok shared his happiness about fans questioning whether he and actress Kim Hye Yoon are dating in real life during a recent press interview.

The interview followed the conclusion of their drama “Lovely Runner,” where they portrayed the characters Ryu Sun-jae and Yim Sol.

Kim Hye Yoon, in a previous interview, mentioned her concerns about playing an older character, “I was worried about playing a 34-year-old since that’s older than I am. Both Woo-seok and my sister are that age, but they aren’t that different from me.”

Byeon Woo-seok responded to her comments with a laugh,

“I never used to relate to the saying, ‘Age is just a number,’ but now that I’ve reached my age, I finally get it. I still feel like I’m in my early twenties, but I’m not. I always wonder when I’ll become more mature. I think Hye Yoon saw that right.”

He’s reflecting during the time of their set.

“Filming with Hye Yoon was really fun. I felt comfortable as well. Sometimes, we would just look at each other and laugh without saying anything. I don’t even remember what we talked about. When I joked around, Hye Yoon would play along, and I found that very cute. She’s really adorable.”

As fans became more invested in the drama, some began hoping for a real-life romance between Byun Woo-seok and Kim Hye Yoon. Addressing this, Byeon Woo-seok said,

“I feel good every time I’m asked if we are dating. It shows that people were deeply engaged with the drama, and I’m grateful for that.”

He praised Kim Hye Yoon’s portrayal of Sol.

“I loved the way she portrayed Sol. She made my heart beat. Without Hye Yoon, Sun-jae wouldn’t have come to life. It was my first time leading a drama, and I didn’t know how to manage my condition, so I relied on Hye Yoon a lot. I can’t thank her enough for everything.”

He reflected, “This year will be one I look back on a lot in my life. There are moments in life when you can’t see the happiness and goodness while you’re in them. I’m trying to deeply cherish the feelings of this moment,” showing his contentment.
