One media outlet borrowed the words of a rep from a wedding enterprise, who said, ” Park Hyo-shin and Jung Ryeo-won are carefully preparing for their marriage. With utmost secrecy, they are in contact with a wedding planner to choose the restaurant and the wedding dress.”

Jung Ryeo-won’s agency, KEYEAST, made an official statement about their actress’s rumor. They said,“Jung and Park’s dating and marriage rumors are groundless. In fact, they have never met privately and Jung is just a fan of Park.”

On November 2, Jung Ryeo-won personally took to her Instagram to address the situation, I was completely surprised during filming. A wedding rumor I did not even know about. I am a fan of Park Hyo Shin. It’s to the point I go to his concert to directly listen to his song. However, I don’t even know his phone number. I never even met him. Once a report comes out, no matter how much it is denied, the words that continue to follow it fluster me, and I feel sorry toward Park Hyo Shin. I hope everyone would know it is not true. I thank and am sorry to the people who worried for me when they heard the news with me on the set of filming. I will put in all my heart to diligently film.”
