Rumors that actors Song Joong-ki, 32, and Kim Tae-ri, 32, were dating were shot down on Saturday as the actors' agencies strongly denied them.

Song's High Zium Studio and Kim's management mmm told local news outlets said that the rumors were "baseless" and "total hearsay."

The rumors arose on Oct. 24 from a video claiming to have caught Kim and Song on film on a romantic trip to Paris, France.

However, the subjects in the video were actually actors Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin, and the clip was comprised of a series of images shot by paparazzi during the newlywed's honeymoon to France in April.

Song debuted on screen through the 2008 film “A Frozen Flower.” He rose to stardom through KBS drama series “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” (2010), “The Innocent Man” (2012), “Descendants of the Sun” (2016), and tvN series “Arthdal Chronicles” (2019), “Vincenzo” (2021) and films “A Werewolf Boy” (2012) as well as “Space Sweepers” (2021) on Netflix.
