Rumors that Korean actors Park Shin-hye and Lee Jong-suk are dating received heated attention immediately after a local news outlet broke the story Wednesday morning.

A local news outlet, Dispatch, reported that the two stars had started a relationship after playing an on-screen couple in the hit TV drama “Pinocchio.”

The most searched terms on Korea’s top search engine, Naver, were “Lee Jong-suk” followed by “Park Shin-hye,” along with “Dispatch” at No. 3, according to live data.

Park and Lee have both denied that they are dating. Their agencies tried to douse the flames of the rumors, saying they are “just close friends” about thirty minutes after the original story broke.

Both Park and Lee have become international hallyu stars with loyal fan bases, following their appearances in “Pinocchio,” which ran from last November to January.
