In particular, many viewers even raised suspicions of a romantic relationship between Bae In-hyuk and Lee Se-young because of their perfect chemistry as ParkHa Couple in the drama and at the 2024 MBC Drama Awards. At the award ceremony, the two won Best Couple and Lee Se-young said, “I used to win Best Couple with Lee Jun-ho, right?”. Suddenly, she held Bae In-hyuk’s hand and waved while saying, “I’m married to a new man now”. Even after the interview, the two continued to show off their couple energy by holding each other hands tightly, stimulating fans’ delusion.

However, Lee Se-young later refuted dating rumors and explained, “I think it is because our chemistry was so good”. In an interview, Bae In-hyuk also shared, “I found it funny”, adding “First of all, I didn’t even know about the dating rumor. Half a day went by then someone contacted me and asked, ‘Is it real?’. While wondering what they were asking about, I got to know about the dating rumor. It was just funny. I believe that it happened because of our chemistry and what we did at the awards ceremony. I didn’t consider it (dating rumor) as something bad. It was actually an interesting experience”.
