We may have fallen in love with actors Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin during Crash Landing On You, but so did they.
Their romance was not merely on-screen; it also lasted way beyond off the screen too. Now, after years of dating, the two are making it official by tying the knot!
Read about their full love story below…
Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin may most famously have worked together on Crash Landing On You. Yet, the two first worked together in the 2018 thriller film The Negotiation.
Since that time, their chemistry was undeniable, and Hyun Bin frequently featured Ye Jin on his Instagram. So, naturally, the two got tangled in dating rumors back then too.
At the time, they and their agencies denied the rumors. However, they were spotted together multiple times. They were even reportedly seen in Los Angeles, California, with her parents at a restaurant.
Son Ye Jin is currently vacationing alone. Her parents are currently in Korea.

I have no doubt about the bravery of Hyun Bin and Son Yejin.👏
They were seen in LA together, several rumors but still decided to do CLOY, HB denouncing the ex-rumor asap, SYJ posting her own unapologetic confirmation in IG, many people in the theater but they know it is time.❤️ pic.twitter.com/5fRNOR5ufK

Rumors only continued to circulate as Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin were spotted grocery shopping together in the United States.
Let’s be real.
There is a difference between:
“Son Yejin heard that Hyun Bin was also traveling, so they spontaneously decided to meet and went grocery shopping together.“
“There’s no value in even replying to this.”

Crash Landing On You
The two got along so well that the two reunited for the beloved K-Drama Crash Landing On You. The connection between the two leads only made viewers ship them even harder.
Their chemistry was clearly not just onscreen but also offscreen. Since Episode 1, they proved to be great together.
And, when it came to kissing scenes, it was no problem, of course. Yet, they loved to tease each other just as those who love each other do.
The two frequently showed their love for one another during behind-the-scenes clips and press interviews that communicated: they’re meant for each other.
New Year’s Couple
So, it was no surprise when Dispatch revealed the 2021 New Year Couple to be the Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin. It was reported that the two had been dating for just eight months despite the previous rumors from 2018.
Dispatch‘s evidence of the relationship was a couple of photos of the couple visiting a golf center. They also reportedly played golf together at a course in Gangwon province. However, since Hyun Bin had to leave for Jordan to film The Point Men in July, and Son Ye Jin was busy preparing for her Hollywood debut in the movie Cross, the two did not have much time to meet up.
Dispatch also included comments from the couple’s close acquaintances regarding the relationship.
- “Honestly, during the filming of Crash Landing On You, they were so into their roles. I don’t know their feelings, I can’t tell if it’s acting or real love.”
- “I think Hyun Bin had developed feelings after the drama finished, and when they had to separate, he developed a feeling of longing for her.”
- “It wasn’t easy for Son Ye Jin to change her relationship with Hyun Bin. But, the busier they became, they became more affectionate towards each other.”
- “They filmed two projects together now. They have been in each other’s company for a long time, and they had started to date carefully considering their age.”
Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin Personally Confirm Dating Rumors
The couple made it Instagram official shortly after Dispatch‘s report. Ye Jin shared a post to the social media platform about the relationship.
The new year has arrived.
Why am I this embarrassed that the first [update] from me is about my personal situation and not my work…
Hm… um… umm..
Yes, it happened that way.. ^.^
I don’t know what to say, but I feel like I have to say something to you guys.. It’s very awkward and weird to me ^^

Rumors of a wedding for Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin have circulated for exactly two years. Now, finally, it’s happening!
Hyun Bin was the first to release the news via his company’s official Instagram. He shared that he would be getting married to Son Ye Jin.
Hello. This is Hyun Bin. Is everyone doing well? I’ve come to write this post as I wanted to let the fans that care for me and have given me vast attention and love, even though I’m lacking in a variety of ways, know about the most important decision in my life first.
There’s probably people that have already been expecting this. Yes. I’ve made the important decision of marriage and I’m cautiously taking a step into the second chapter of my life.
I’ve made a promise with the girl that has always made me smile, to walk together in the future.
Jeong Hyeok and Se Ri, who were together in the drama, will be taking that first step together.
I think that you guys will be happily cheering our first steps on, as you always have up to now, with warm and loving gazes.
Then, everyone, please stay healthy and happy until the day we meet and greet each other.
