Having completed his two-year mandatory military service, Korean actor Ji Hyun-woo was discharged from a military unit over the weekend while being greeted by hundreds of domestic and foreign fans.
“Thanks to all my fellow soldiers, commanders and cadets, I was able to finish my military service without any problems. I will quickly get resituated and greet you with a good image soon,” Ji was quoted as saying.
But asked about his romantic relationship with actress Yoo In-na who did not show up in the discharge event, Ji spared words, sparking speculation that the couple might have split up.
“That question is a bit ... tough to answer,” he was quoted as saying.
The couple reportedly fell in love after starring together in historical drama “Queen In-hyun’s Man” in 2012.
Yoo’s entertainment agency denied the rumored break-up.
“Yoo In-na has a tight schedule, going across Korean and China for filming, including narration for a documentary. Although she could not attend Ji Hyun-woo’s event, they are still dating,” an official of YG Entertainment said.
Yoo is currently shooting a Chinese film called “Wedding Bible” and taking on her MC activities on KBS Cool FM’s “Yoo In Na‘s Volume Up” and OnStyle’s “Get It Beauty.”
Meanwhile, Ji is planning to return to the small screen. He is in talks to star in the new KBS 2TV Monday-Tuesday drama “Trot Lovers.”
