SEOUL, Dec. 8 (Yonhap) -- Actress Hwang Jung-eum admitted Tuesday she has been dating a professional golfer-cum-businessman for four months in response to a news article making such claims earlier in the day.

An online news outlet ran a story with photos of Hwang and Lee Young-don on a date in the western Seoul district of Yeonhui. According to the report, the couple was celebrating Lee's birthday last Wednesday, with the former member of the 2000s girl group Sugar seen holding hands with her 34-year-old beau.

Photos also show Lee taking off his coat to protect the "Pretty Woman" actress from snow.

"It's true Hwang recently started a relationship with someone she got to know through a mutual friend," said C-JeS Entertainment, which manages the 30-year-old actress. "But they're not yet at the stage of discussing marriage. They've just started dating."

The agency refused to give any other details about the relationship.

Hwang, who is critically acclaimed for her lead role in the MBC romance drama "Pretty Woman," is last known to have dated Kim Yong-jun of the band SG Wannabe. That relationship lasted nine years, and the couple was reported to have broken up in May 2014.
