Hyun Bin and Kang So-ra Start Dating


In mid-December 2016, it was confirmed that Hyun Bin and Kang So-ra went on a date. VAST, Hyun Bin’s agency, and Kang So-ra’s agency, Plum Entertainment, acknowledged the relationship of the couple through a press release.

Plum Entertainment revealed, “It has only been about half a month since the two started dating, so we’re very cautious about the reports.” It seemed the agencies wanted to be considerate and sensitive to the personal affairs of the two celebrities. The statement closed by asking for fans to support the couple in this new relationship.

“Both celebrities met for the first time last October, please send them blessings,” read statements from both VAST Entertainment and Plum Entertainment.

Once the news was confirmed by their respective agencies, Hyun Bin and Kang So-ra were not afraid to date in public. Even though both of them were busy with film projects, they still made time to be together.

In April 2017, for example, they attended a musical drama together. In fact, when Hyun Bin had any chance at all he would spend time with Kang So-ra, even just for lunch.

So, Why Did Hyun Bin and Kang So-ra Break Up?


In December 2017, Hyun Bin’s and Kang So-ra’s relationships again caught the public’s attention because they were reported to have broken up. We didn’t want to believe it, but realized it must be true when the news of the break-up was immediately confirmed by their agencies. Plum Actors stated, “We spoke with Kang So-ra, and she has confirmed that she and Hyun Bin ended their relationship recently.”

VAST Entertainment also released an official statement that read, “We have confirmed that Hyun Bin and Kang So-ra recently broke up after drifting apart due to their busy schedules. They ended the relationship on good terms, and will continue to support each other as fellow actors.”

Sources from their closest friends reported, “The two are very reserved and don’t talk much, so they don’t really bring each other up in public events, but all of their friends know that they’ve broken up.”

Hyun Bin was last seen in the movie The Swindler, which was released in November 2017 in South Korea. He previously dated Song Hye-kyo, who is now married to Song Joong-ki. Even when Hyun Bin and Kang So-ra were dating, Song Hye-kyo prayed for their relationship to go well and become serious enough for them to consider getting married, just like what happened to her and Song Joong-ki. Unfortunately Hyun Bin’s and Kang So-ra’s relationship only lasted for one year. Even though Hyun Bin and Kang So-ra have broken up, it is reported that they are both still good friends.

Well, let’s pray the best for Hyun Bin and Kang So-ra.
