She then dishes on the start of their romance after starring in the horror movie, directed by Lee Chung Hyun.

“We did ‘The Call’ together and then started dating. A year into our relationship, we had this connection,” she said, adding that they once again did a collaboration in the Netflix movie “Ballerina,” where the actress played the main character, Jang Ok Ju.

Since they have two projects together, the actress revealed what it’s like to work with your romantic partner.

“I don’t like it when he calls me by my name on the set. Whenever he does that, I ask him, ‘Can you not call me like that?'” Jeon Jong Seo explained, adding that directors add “nim” after the actor’s name as a form of formality or respect on the set.

However, the actress revealed that Lee Chung Hyun “doesn’t care about this kind of thing.”

As for petty quarrels, the actress revealed that they seldom fight on the set or because of work, and the reason behind it is that they are both “really exhausted all the time.”

Of course, she and the director also fight like a normal couple, but on moments like this, it usually happens during their time off, expressing that they keep things professional at work or on set.
