Actors Kim Soo-hyun and Lim Na-young shot down a Taiwanese news report that claimed the two were dating.

Taiwanese media outlet ETtoday reported Monday that the two were dating after they were spotted whispering to each other during the “2024 Ultra Korea” music festival held in Incheon, on June 7.

Both actors' agencies denied the dating claims.

Kim’s agency Gold Medalist strongly denied the rumor to local media outlets on Tuesday, saying that it is “totally unfounded.”

“The two met coincidentally at a festival, which Lim personally attended,” Lim’s agency Mask Studio told reporters. “The dating rumor is false, and they only whispered to each other because it was noisy around them.”

Kim debuted in 2007 with MBC’s “Kimchi Cheese Smile” and rose to stardom through the popular TV series “Moon Embracing the Sun” (2012), “My Love from the Star" (2013) and “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” (2020). The actor recently starred in tvN’s romance drama “Queen of Tears,” which was a major hit, ending with a 24.9 percent viewership rating.

Lim first gained public recognition in 2016 as a member of project girl group I.O.I, formed through Mnet’s girl group audition program “Produce 101” (2016). After I.O.I disbanded the following year, Lim came back as a member of girl group Pristin the same year under Pledis Entertainment. Pristin disbanded in 2019.

Since Pristin’s disbandment, Lim has turned to acting and recently appeared on KBS1’s series “Unpredictable Family” (2023-24).
