A press release issued by fantagio on Monday said that the rumor of the two having gotten married in secret, which has recently been spreading through various websites and social networking services, is “entirely groundless.”

Gong Yoo has been focusing only on his work these days, including filming and promoting his latest movie “The Crucibles” while now also busy preparing for his fan meeting in Japan in December, fantagio added.

In response, fantagio will inquire into a cyber investigation to find the original distributor of the news, take legal measures if necessary, and take firm measures against media outlets which have reported on the rumor without consideration of the agencies’ positions, the statement added.

Gong, 32, whose real name is Gong Ji-cheol, has appeared in more than a dozen television dramas and films since his debut in 2001 and became a household name throughout Asia after starring in the 2007 hit TV series “The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince.”

His latest project “The Crucibles,” co-starring actress Jung Yu-mi, topped the local box office for several weeks.

Lim, also of the same age, has appeared in numerous dramas and movies since her debut in 1998 including the hit TV series “I’m Sorry, I Love You” (KBS2, 2004) and films “A Tale of Two Sisters” (2003), “Lump of Sugar” (2006) and blockbuster fantasy flick “WOOCHI” (2009) opposite Korean actor Gang Dong-won.

The two starred in film “Finding Mr. Destiny” together last year but are known to be close friends.
