Nam Goong Min is dating and it's not his "We Got Married" wife Hong Jin Young.
Rumors that he was dating model-turned-actress Jin Ah Reum were recently reported in the Korean media outlet Chosun Ilbo. And the actor's agency Didim 531, was quick to confirm that the actor and model were indeed a couple.
"We were in contact with Nam Goong Min," said a Didim 531 representative. "He and Jin Ah Reum are dating. We ask you to support their relationship."
The couple met while filming "Light My Fire," a mystery crime thriller on which Nam is credited as screenwriter and director. Jin played a part in the film.
In June 2015 when Nam was asked if he was dating his "We Got Married" co-star, he said he was not, but he did say that he was eager to date. At the time he was not sure what his style was.
"I don't know what style I like," he said. "I like all women."
He apparently narrowed down his preferences in August 2015 when he began dating Jin Ah Reum.
That time frame meant Jin dated the actor the entire time he played the despicable chaebol Nam Gyu Man in the legal melodrama "Remember." Fortunately, the actor is much nicer in real life and has even played nicer characters in past dramas.
Before making a winning impression with his villain role in "Remember" he appeared in the dramas "I Need Romance 3," "My Secret Hotel" and "The Girl Who Sees Smells." His next film role is in the Chinese film "Moonlit Motive."
At 37 Nam is 11 years older than his model girlfriend.
Jin, 26, has appeared in several films so far, including "The Royal Tailor" with Park Shin Hye and Yoo Yeon Suk, and "How To Use Guys With Secret Tips" with Lee Si Young and Oh Jung Se. She's a successful model and a regular at Seoul Fashion Week.
