Television star Lady Jane and professional PC gamer-turned-entertainer Hong Jin-ho on Tuesday denied that they were in a romantic relationship, calling each other good colleagues.

“They are very close friends and often eat out together,” an aide of Hong told local press, denying the dating rumor. About allegations that the two were touching each others’ thighs at a Japanese restaurant, the aide said, “Lady Jane was bit by a mosquito and she was trying to show Hong where she was bit.”

The rumor surfaced when an online user recently uploaded on Twitter two pictures of Lady Jane and Hong eating sushi at a 24-hour sushi place in Seongsan-dong, Seoul. The pictures revealed the two celebrities touching the other’s thighs and feeding each other sushi.

Lady Jane, 30, and Hong, 32, are currently playing lovers in tvN’s rom-com “I Need More Romance.”
