After a few years, in 2017, the two were spotted spending their vacation together. Shortly after, the couple was seen together once again during their secret National park and Aquarium date.
However, the actress's agency S.A.L.T Entertainment quickly denied dating rumors by calling them to be in "a close senior-junior relationship," given the actors both studied at Chung Ang University.
But their private affair couldn't remain confined for a long time as a year later, the news of the couple dating was officially confirmed.
As per Naver, official statements were put out by their respective agencies, and thus their relationship was made public in 2018.
According to Tae-joon's former agency, Huayi Brothers, the love affair developed toward the end of 2017 with the help of their close colleagues. Similarly, S.A.L.T Entertainment also cited identical details and confirmed the news.
