Fans are naturally excited at the possibility of the actors being a couple on and off-screen. Besides, it’s not uncommon for actors to fall in love, as we have seen with Crash Landing on You couple Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo couple Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung, and Strong Woman Do Bong Soon couple Park Hyung Sik and Park Bo Young.

However, in the case of Cha Eunwoo and Moon Ga Young, it has not been confirmed that these two have had a relationship more than platonic offscreen.

All the videos above “proved” the news of the co-stars allegedly dating with false reports. Some even used fake screenshots that appeared to be Koreaboo posts on X (formerly Twitter), claiming that we posted that the True Beauty co-stars are in a relationship, although we never did. In the fake screenshot, the account’s name is in lowercase, unverified, and it’s not our formatting style. Likewise, Dispatch has not reported any such dating news either.

The edited fake news post. The account is unverified, Koreaboo is lowercase, and the paragraph’s formatting style is unprofessional.
An authentic Koreaboo post example on X (formerly Twitter). Not only is the formatting totally different, but the account is verified, and there’s an article link and an official source.

This is not the first time that these rumors have circulated. On April 1 (April Fool’s Day), a post on TikTok went viral with over 2M views, claiming that Dispatch had revealed that Cha Eunwoo and Moon Ga Young were dating.
