Actress Choo Ja-hyun said she is in a relationship with Chinese actor Yu Xiaoguang on her Weibo account on Wednesday.
"Today, I want to share the most important thing in my life with people I love. I am writing this after careful consideration," she said.
She added, "I always thought that I should not rely on others. But, at the same time, I still always wanted to rely on someone."
"After meeting him, I started my day with a smile and go to bed with a smile again. At first I was not familiar with this, but now I realised that he has become a very important person in my life."
Actor-singer Yu Xiaoguang, who is two years younger than Choo, is currently appearing in diverse variety shows in the Chinese entertainment scene.
Choo, born in 1979, made her debut in China in the early 2000s on the grounds that "it was hard to make a living" in Korea. Since her drama "The Temptation to Go Home," a Chinese version of Korean hit drama "Temptation of a Wife," gained popularity in 2011, she rose to stardom in the nation.
