A fellow colleague stated, "They do have a big age gap but their personalities get along so well that you can't even feel the age difference. They became attracted to one another during movie filming and naturally became a couple."

Perhaps the surprise comes more from the age difference than their apparent attraction to each other, as it has also been reported that Kim Joo Hyuk and Lee Yoo Young have openly enjoyed dates.

Actor Kim Joo Hyuk has been acting since 1988, when he gained recognition in the drama Lovers in Prague, and actress Lee Yoo Young debuted in 2014 with the film Late Spring.

Congratulations to the new couple! We wish you much happiness!
