Choi Ji-woo and Lee Jin-wook promoting Air City in 2007
Whoa. This is unexpected.
News has just come out that Choi Ji-woo is dating Lee Jin-wook, with whom she starred in the 2007 airport action drama Air City.
This may turn into one of these developing/changing stories, because while Choi’s rep made the statement to a news source, apparently Lee Jin-wook’s side is having trouble contacting the actor, who is lying low as the story breaks.
The couple reportedly met on the set of Air City and have been dating quietly these past two years. The fact was revealed by Choi’s representative from entertainment company Olive Nine in an on-the-record interview.
Huh. I remember rooting for their romance in Air City, even though I LOVE Lee Jung-jae and thought she had good chemistry with him (I just preferred Lee Jin-wook’s character). But she always did seem like a big sister more than a love interest in the drama, emphasized by their six-year age difference. Still, if it’s true (and it looks like it is), good for them.
The 34-year-old Choi (Korean age; she was born in 1975) was most recently in SBS’s A Star’s Lover, while 28-year-old Lee is acting in the SBS weekend series City of Glass (or Glass Castle). He is expected to enlist for his mandatory army service in the coming year.
