Han Ye Seul's Boyfriend Is 10 Years Younger than Her
Han is quite open with her fans regarding her personal relationships. Since many fans were curious to know who she was dating, she opened up about her boyfriend, Ryu Sung Jae, in May 2021.
On May 13, 2021, Han confirmed she was dating a theatrical actor ten years younger than her. The actress uploaded three photos on her Instagram with her boyfriend photographed in the last photo with the caption, "Introducing my boyfriend."
The photos showed the couple on a date at a plush restaurant near Seoul.
When the actress first opened up about her boyfriend, their relationship was heavily criticized for their age gap of ten years.
Her Boyfriend Was Falsely Accused of Being a Male Escort
A month after the actress made her relationship public, the Korean media outlet, Dispatch claimed that her boyfriend used to be a male escort and that he looks "exactly like someone from the movie 'Beastie Boys.'"
Han claimed the rumors were false on her Instagram story and showed love to her boyfriend by posting several photos taken from a recent date.
"I took down the photos because so many of my acquaintances who were worried about me told me not to react to them," she wrote as her caption. "Instead, I will end the day with our pretty couple photos. Thank you for having faith in me and for supporting us."
