Actor Ji Hyun Woo and Yoo In Na are currently dating. Ji Hyun Woo and Yoo In Na were seen on a date on the 16th of this month. Photos have been released from an online newspaper revealing their relationship. In the photos, both of them seem to be unable to stop smiling from happiness. It was a typical scene for a couple in love.
However, there were a lot of complications before their love story officially began. The first incident happened 11 days prior.
On June 7, Ji Hyun Woo publicly confessed his love for Yoo In Na at the fan meeting for tvN drama 'Queen In Hyun's Man.' Ji Hyun Woo stated, 'I wanted to confess this in front of the fans that have shown us so much support. I genuinely like Yoo In Na.' It was a confession that nobody was expecting. Yoo In Na was also shocked at his unplanned confession. At that time, Yoo In Na only said, 'I think we will have to talk about this after this event is over.'
In Yoo In Na's perspective, she couldn't just say 'Yes, I like Ji Hyun Woo as well' right then and there and begin their relationship. There are a few reasons to why she couldn't just accept his love at the spot.
First, Yoo In Na has a lot to lose if she dates somebody publicly. As an actress, if she accepts and confirms that she is dating, she is risking the loss of her male fans. This is the reason many actresses refuse to date publicly.
Also, Yoo In Na will receive the title, 'Somebody's girlfriend' wherever she goes. Also, just because she begins dating Ji Hyun Woo, she might be limited when it comes to the roles she will be offered.
For example, Yoo In Na was scheduled to appear on MBC 'We're Getting Married 3'. The concept of the show is that two celebrities become pretend-husband-and wife and experience marriage and honeymoon life together. If Yoo In Na confirms her relationship status with Ji Hyun Woo, it will be hard for her to be a part of the show.
Also, there is a very critical factor here. JI Hyun Woo is scheduled to enter the army on July 3rd. He only has one month before he enters the Korean army. If they were to break up during the time Ji Hyun Woo is in the army (approximately 18 months), many people will suspect that it is Yoo In Na's fault.
Regardless of those reasons, Yoo In Na enjoyed her date with Ji Hyun Woo. What is so special about Ji Hyun Woo that made her fall for him?
Ji Hyun Woo's representative who has known him for a long time stated, 'He is very masculine. He is dependable even when guys look at him. He gives off a feeling that he will be a really good boyfriend. Also, he is very mature for his age. He is brave enough to confess his love in front of the whole country.'
Another stated, 'Ji Hyun Woo doesn't pretend to be something he's not. He is very honest and easy going. He is also very good to those who are close to him.'
Yoo In Na seems to have fallen for Ji Hyun Woo after seeing all of his characteristics while they worked together. Prior to their scandal, they have been captured behind the scenes looking very friendly with each other. In the drama 'Queen In Hyun's Man', Yoo In Na and Ji Hyun Woo were featured as love birds, which means that they have spent a lot of time together. It is possible that the emotions of the characters have become their actual feelings toward each other.
