In Jan. of 2015, Korean actor Song Seung Hun had collaborated on a film with Chinese actress Liu Yifei. Despite months after the film ended, reports claim that the pairs' love story has gone from onscreen to off screen. Numerous insiders state that the pair have been dating for quite a while.

Song Seung Hun and Liu Yifei worked on the romantic film "The Third Way of Love." The said film was co-produced by Chinese and Korean production studios and was based on the novel entitled "Di San Zhong Ai Qing." The tale of the book follows the tragic love story of Zou Yu and Lin Qizheng. "The Third Way of Love" was directed by John H. Lee.

Eight months after the announcement of the film project, it is apparent that things have worked out in real life for the pair. An exclusive report by Soompi, representatives of Song Seung Hun's agency confirmed that he is indeed dating the Chinese actress.

"After finishing filming they were unable to see each other often, but they kept in touch and started their relationship. Please look after them positively," stated the rep.

However, the report continued stating that the pair have not yet met with each other's parents. This is in contrast to the reports and photos of the pair having gone on vacation.

"It is untrue that they have met each other's parents. They have not spoken about marriage yet," added the report.

This pairing is proof that love knows no age or limit. Song Seung Hun is 39 years of age, whereas Liu Yifei is 28 years old. The couple have an 11 year age gap. Of course, following the marriage of Bae Yong-joon to an actress 20 years younger, the news of Song Seung Hun dating someone 10 years younger is the least bit surprising.

So while fans know all about Song Seung Hun having starred in the immensely popular Korean drama of 2000, "Autumn in My Heart," everyone else is asking who Liu Yifei is.

Liu Yifei is the daughter of the first secretary in the Chinese Embassy in France. As for her mother, Liu's mom was a popular stage performer and dancer. Liu didn't immediately start acting, but instead started out as a model. Her debut was on the television show, "The Story of a Noble Family."

Fans may recognize her as the Golden Sparrow in the 2008 film, "The Forbidden Kingdom" where she starred alongside Jackie Chan and Jet Li.
