The following is their statement in full:
Hello everyone, this is Kim Tae Hee's management agency, Lua Entertainment. (Both) of them are dating each other now, but they are just at the stage of getting to know each other with positive vibes. They have been seeing each other for slightly more than a month now, but they have been unable to find sufficient time or a suitable venue to date due to their status as famous celebrities. So under this situation, their feelings for each other has definitely changed from the time when they were mere working partners, but they are still unsure about their actual feelings for each other. We know that the public are very concerned about their relationship after seeing the news, so it is only now that we are divulging the details about their situation. Thank you everyone for the concern.
