News of them dating broke at the end of last year, but they have been relatively private and low-key in public as well as on social media.
In a savvy marketing move, telecoms company Smart Communication in the Philippines has reunited the two good-lookers for their first commercial since they went public with their relationship, perfectly timed for release on Valentine’s Day on Sunday (Feb 14).
In the sleek one-minute ad, the 38-year-old actor is seen in a futuristic setting, searching for Son, 39, who appears to be in another city or a different dimension.
Finally, presumably with the power of Smart’s 5G offering, the star-crossed lovers come face to face.
The ad ends with Hyun asking in English, “Do you believe this is possible?”
And millions of #BinJin worshippers collectively swoon when Son replies with “I do”.
The couple also filmed a short and sweet Valentine’s Day video for the telco, beginning their message with a Filipino greeting, “Mabuhay”, and ending with “Mahal namin kayo”, which means “we love you”.
