The pair kept their relationship under wraps for a long time. In June 2020, reporter Kim Yong spoke about the actress in a live stream, as reported by Allkpop. In it, he also mentioned that Jung-Hyun and Ye-Ji had dated for a long time.
However, he claimed their relationship was not all fairytale-like. The reporter went on to add that Jung- Hyun’s colleagues had been worried about him because of their relationship. The news about Jung-Hyun dating Ye-Ji comes days after people speculated that the actor might be dating his ‘Crash Landing On You’ co-star Seo Ji-Hye.
Several people on social media started speculating that a romance was brewing between the two. However, their agencies denied this.

The drama started on the sets of MBC’s romance drama, Time, in 2018. Jung-Hyun was starring alongside Girl’s Generation. It was alleged that Jung-Hyun was prohibited from doing any romantic scenes with his fellow co-star.
Korean news site released text messages between Kung-Hyun and Ye-Ji which showed that the actress asked him to “get rid of all skinship scenes.” Skinship comes from ‘skin’ and ‘friendship’. To put it in simple words, Ye-Ji preferred there were no romantic scenes involved between the two.
