KOREA - TVXQ member Yunho denied Thursday the relationship rumour with a colleague in a TV drama, saying both are just friends.

Earlier in the day, a news outlet reported that Yunho was dating actress Seo Ye-ji who is appearing with him in MBC's "The Night Watchman."

Acting as cousins in the drama, both became closer and started to feel more than just colleagues for each other, Sports Seoul said.

Mostly staying in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, to film the drama, the pair dated outside work once a week, mainly seeing each other on private drives, it added.

Yunho and Seo, however, immediately denied the report, claiming that both were just close colleagues.

The 24-year-old actress, who debuted as a commercial model last year, expanded her career into acting, starting with tvN drama "Potato Star" and film "Sado."
