South Korean actress Jeon Hae-rim, better known by her stage name Ha Ji-won, stole everyone's hearts when she first debuted in the 1996 teen drama, New Generation Report: Adults Don’t Understand Us. Since then she has been seen in numerous movies and dramas including Hwang Jini and Empress Ki, as well as the romantic comedy series Secret Garden.
Ha Ji-won with her mesmerizing beauty has won the hearts of many, so has she got someone special who stole her heart? Is she dating, if so who is her boyfriend? Active on social networking sites, Ji-Won keeps her fans updated on her professional life. But her personal life is the one we are interested in, isn't it? Let's find out.
Ha Ji-won who is in her mid-40s, is still not married. Over the years she has been linked with many of her co-stars. But she has never been explicit about her personal affairs.
In 2014, she was rumored to have been dating her Secret Garden co-star Hyun Bin. The rumor started when in an interview the actress revealed that Hyun Bin was the closest male actor in her life.

This brought up some pretty huge waves for the fans because the chemistry of this duo was already much admired on screen. That could have only been better if they were having an affair in real life too. Though, no confirmation of their relationship is out yet.
After that candid interview in 2014, Ha, Ji-won was further asked many more times if she was dating Hyun Bin who is 9 years younger than her. But none of them ever admitted being in an affair. For that matter, they have never been spotted dating or hanging out in public either.
But then there is Ji Chang Wook. In early 2015, when he appeared on MBC's "Section TV," Ji Chang took the opportunity to express his affection for his former co-star Ha Ji Won. The "Healer" actor was asked to choose his ideal type between the beautiful actress Song Hye Gyo and his former "Empress Ki" co-star Ha Ji Won.

And it's not even the first time Ji Chang has complimented Ji Won. While he was filming "Empress Ki," he revealed that they were both shy around strangers but that they quickly became comfortable with each other.
I'm afraid of strangers but it seemed like she was too.
After filming the first few scenes together they grew close. He got in the habit of helping her escape from public attention and often said that he really enjoyed working with her. He said in the Empress Ki press conference:
She's a really good listener and she gave me a lot of advice. She gave me suggestions on how to do things differently. She's very responsive too. She laughs a lot so the filming site was always cheerful.
But still, the fact is that Ji Chang and Ha Ji-Won are not dating. So, who is her current boyfriend then? Sadly, as of 2023, Ha Ji-Won is not reported to have any boyfriend currently, nor the issue of her romance has hit the limelight.
Maybe Ji-Won is single and is pursuing her career rather than a relationship. Or maybe she is secretly dating. Well, without any strong proof, the issue sits at the top of fans' wish lists. Let's wait for that day.
It is definite that Ji-won has millions of fans and followers who would give up a ton load of things to be the one for this beautiful actress. But it seems Ji-won doesn't want to plan to ring the wedding bells any time soon.
Ji-won is doing very well in her career and she still looks and feels very young. So maybe she is planning to wait longer still. What do you think of this cute actress and her love life? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
