Hyun Bin and Song Hye-kyo first met when they were both starring in the drama World Within in 2008. This drama, also known as The World That They Live In is a Korean drama that aired on KBS2. It was a comedy-romance directed by Pyo Min-soo and Kim Kyu-tae. The series wasn’t just your regular drama, but the story also illustrates how the process of making a film or drama happens. Hyun Bin and Song Hye-kyo were given the chance to play as the main characters, Hyun Bin as Jung Ji-oh and Song Hye-kyo as Joo Joon-young.

Jung Ji-oh (Hyun Bin) and Joo Joon-young (Hye-kyo) were both professional drama producers. Even though they followed the same career path, they still had very different backgrounds and temperaments. Jung Ji-oh is full of charisma, firm, and came from a poor family. Behind his harsh appearance, he’s a very understanding person. Whereas with Joon-young, she’s from a rich family, is full of confidence, and she’s a producer who’s swift and agile. Despite her advantages, she has one major weakness as a person. She lacks empathy and doesn’t connect well with other people.

This drama tells about the two producers who fight for love. Before they became producers, they studied in the same place. During college, Jung Ji-oh and Joo Joon-young dated for a while but eventually broke up. The first reason hey broke up was because Joon-young’s parents didn’t agree with their daughter dating with a poor man, Jung Ji-oh. The other reason was because of Joon-young’s manners. She’s very ignorant and doesn’t think about other people’s feelings. However, she has tried to overcome through daily work on the set despite there being a lot of obstacles.

Because the stars are paired as a couple, of course, they had many moments and even romantic scenes every day. Here are some of their most romantic scenes on World Within!

After being in a relationship for two years, shocking news came from Hyun bin and Song Hye-kyo, where both actors management companies officially announced the news of their relationship failing in the early part of 2011. Their agency also explained that the reason why they broke up was because they both had been so busy with their respective activities.

In addition, the overwhelming public attention they received also put them under a lot of pressure, and groundless rumors of their breakup were also very stressful. They didn’t have time to deal with the public fallout and they chose to separate. The agency said:

So at least, earlier this year, the two agreed to end their relationship. The reason they didn’t say anything in public was because they didn’t want further public attention and because Hyun Bin didn’t want to disappoint his fans with this news that were very unfortunate on the day of his registration, the last day he could communicate directly with his fans. That’s why we pushed the announcement back to March 8, after Hyun Bin’s enlistment was finalized. We are sorry for not announcing this before, hope you can understand. Both will do their best in their respective positions.

Meanwhile, Hyun Bin joined the Military service on March 7, 2011, then Son Hye-kyo was busy filming for the movie “Today”.
