Boss denies that Hyun Bin is dating

Hyun Bin

Hyun Bin

After speculation last week that linked Chinese actress Tang Wei’s Korean land purchase to a possible romance with co-star Hyun Bin, the Hallyu actor’s superior dismissed the rumor.

Hyun’s supervisor in the Marine Corps was interviewed on a Web site and as well as divulging his sentiments toward his fellow soldier, said the rumor was ludicrous because “he’s not seeing anyone.”

The supervisor said that when he first saw the entertainer, he “froze and then felt butterflies.”

In regard to the allegations that Tang and Hyun met up in April, the military man said that couldn’t be true “because he never took extra breaks. After Christmas, he stayed put for five months, although he had leave days he could use.”

Last week, media reported Tang bought land worth 1.3 billion won ($1.1 million) in Bundang, Gyeonggi. It is rare for a non-Korean entertainer to buy property in Korea, so many wondered if she was seeing someone.

Because Hyun and Tang filmed “Late Autumn” two years ago, many assumed they might be dating.
