And in 2019, they starred in a romantic comedy TV series titled Crush Landing on You, which involved them in a dating rumor. Initially, they denied the story. However, they eventually decided to date and even married in March.

Besides Son Ye jin, Hyun Bin also had previous romantic relationships with other actresses. Who were they?

Hyun Bin’s Wife Was Meant for the Actor Since Long Time Ago

The first time Hyun Bin met his wife wasn’t on the set of The Negotiation and Crush Landing on You but also on the Secret Garden in 2011. Indeed, she was not directly acting with Hyun Bin, as Son Ye jin only made a guest appearance.

However, fans remembered this scene repeatedly, even making an article that said this was a beautiful miracle. Is it coincidence, or could we say that this is a miracle?

Three years later, precisely in July 2014, Hyun Bin and Son Ye jin won the Producer’s Choice Awards. This moment happened at an event called Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival.

Hyun Bin and Son Ye jin had the opportunity to deliver gratitude speeches on stage. At the event, the actor said, “Thank you for giving me such a prestigious award. It’s even more meaningful as this award is given by the producers. I hope to work with many fine producers in the future. I’ll make a great effort to meet the fans’ expectations with better works.”

On the other hand, Son Ye jin made a shorter speech, saying,

“I am delighted to receive this award as the producers give it. I am very honored and feel proud to be a Korean actress.”

They had a fateful meeting again in May 2017. Hyun Bin and Son Ye jin appeared in the 2018 crime thriller movie called The Negotiation. The movie was a story of a negotiator Ha Chae Yoon (Son Ye jin), who tried to deal with a hostage-taker named Min Tae Gu (Hyun Bin).

Son Ye jin blatantly said that when Hyun Bin was positively reviewing The Negotiation’s script, she thought she would also take the role. Son Ye jin confessed that she was pretty surprised that Hyun Bin accepted the role, as his image differed from his previous role. So, the actress thought Hyun Bin was using this role as a new challenge.

Later, in May 2019, the two appeared together in a hit drama series titled Crush Landing on You. The drama told the story of a successful businesswoman, Yoon Se Ri (Son Ye jin), who accidentally landed in North Korea and then crossed paths with Captain Ri Jeong Hyeok (Hyun Bin).

Thanks to this drama series, Hyun Bin and Son Ye jin could find comfort in each other. The two confirmed their relationship in January 2021, which coincided with Son Ye jin’s Instagram post with a caption, “I’m grateful to have been able to meet a good person, and I’ll work hard to tend our relationship with care.”

Finally, in March 2022, Hyun Bin and Son Ye jin married. The couple exchanged their wedding vows at the Grand Walkerhill Hotel, Seoul.

Now, see Hyun Bin’s relationship with Kang So Ra below.

How Long Hyun Bin and Kang So-ra Dated?

At first, the news that they were dating was just a rumor. However, in mid-December 2016, they were dating for real, as their agencies confirmed the news. The two allegedly went their separate ways in 2017.

Kang So Ra’s agency, Plum Entertainment, said, “It has only been about half a month since the two started dating; therefore, we’re very cautious about the reports.” The agency said this to consider the actor and actresses’ personal affairs.

The two were fatefully met while Kang So Ra was moving agencies. At that time, she met people related to Hyun Bin’s agency, and thus, their romantic relationship began.

Hyun Bin and Kang So Ra were indeed busy with their respective film projects, but fortunately, they could still make time to be together as much as possible. For instance, the two attended a musical drama together in April 2017. Hyun Bin also did his best to make a little time to take lunch with Kang So Ra, even if it’s just for a moment.

Unfortunately, when the star couple became too busy with their schedule, they decided to split. A close friend whose name was not revealed said, “The two are very reserved, plus they don’t talk much as they didn’t want to bring each other up in public events. However, all of their friends knew they’d already broken up.” Their break-up moment happened sometime in December 2017.

At that time, however, VAST Entertainment didn’t know anything about their breakup moment. After discussing it thoroughly with Hyun Bin, they said they would make the announcement as soon as possible.

Like VAST Entertainment, Kang So Ra’s agency also wanted to make it clear to the public. The Plum Actors said they were looking into the breakup with Kang So Ra.

And sometime in August 2020, Kang So Ra posted a handwritten letter on her official fan café, announcing the happy news that she would get married. The actress said, “I met a good person with whom I want to share my life in the future. I promise to continue to work hard, so I would be very grateful if you guys continue supporting me as an actress.”

Well, this was great news! Kang So Ra could find her soulmate quite soon, and Hyun Bin could also see his life’s love two years after Kang So Ra’s wedding.

Congratulations to you both. We wish Kang So Ra and Hyun Bin would be happily ever after with their respective partners!

Hyun Bin was Also Involved in a Special Relationship with Song Hye Kyo

Similar to the actor’s fate with Son Ye jin, Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo met on the drama set. The two reportedly dated after their time together in the drama Worlds Within in 2008. After a while, the two broke up sometime in 2011.

The lovebirds had numerous romantic moments which made the public ship them. It began when Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo had a chance to act together on the drama set. The two were given to play the main characters, Hyun Bin as Jung Ji Oh and Song Hye Kyo as Joo Joon Young.

Because of this drama, Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin had many romantic scenes every day, eventually making their romantic moments off-screen. Their affectionate moments happened during press conferences and behind the scenes. For instance, during their press conference in Singapore, Hyun Bin was repeatedly seen exchanging eye contact

with Song Hye Kyo. Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo were also very friendly while interviewing Worlds Within 12 years ago with the other actors and actresses.

Eventually, their roles as a couple made their love life real. Not long after their filming, they were reported to be dating. This news wasn’t even a surprise for people since they acted in many romantic scenes in the drama. The public even considered them the most harmonious Korean drama pair, thanks to the series.

Both Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo admitted their relationship openly and were full of romance. The lovebirds stayed in a relationship for two years until shocking news came from their respective management companies that announced their breakup in early 2011.

Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo didn’t say anything in public because they wanted to avoid public attention. This unfortunate moment happened on the day of his military registration. The agencies hoped that the fans would understand the situation, as both Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo would do their best in their respective positions. The actor also considered his fans so they wouldn’t be very disappointed.

Several years later, a Weibo (similar to social media such as Twitter and Facebook) user claimed that the relationship between Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo heated up again as the user had spotted the actor and actress going out on dates. Because of this, the rumor about them having bought a house together made public talk about their relationship again.

However, some users tried to straighten up this rumor as it was impossible for the man in the photo to be Hyun Bin. Because Hyun Bin was in Jordan, he filmed his new movie titled Bargaining. But the others tried to justify that the man was Hyun Bin, as the photo was uploaded on June 28, two weeks before Hyun Bin left South Korea.

Congratulations, Hyun Bin and Son Ye jin! What do you think about Hyun Bin’s relationship with those actresses?
