Following the confirmation of her relationship with Crash Landing on You co-star Hyun Bin, Son Ye-jin took to social media to share her thoughts about going public about her relationship.
"It’s a new year. Appearing in front of all of you with news about my personal life rather than work-related news for the first time, I wonder why I feel so embarrassed.. Hmm…mm..umm… Yes, that’s how it turned out..^.^
Haha," the actress wrote on her Instagram as translated by entertainment website Soompi.
Ye-jin remarked that she will work hard to take care of their relationship.
"I’m not sure what I should say, but I thought I should at least say something to all of you.. It feels very awkward and strange..^^; I’m thankful to have been able to meet a good person, and I’ll work hard to tend [the relationship] with care," she wrote.
