When Shin Min-ah Supported Kim Woo-bin After a Cancer Diagnosis: How Their Romance Fought Through Hard Times

South Korean stars Shin Min-ah and Kim Woo-bin have been together for over seven years. However, they’ve been pretty tight-lipped about their relationship, so much so that fans only have two or three photos of the pair. Nonetheless, fans are looking forward to seeing them in their next Our Blues show, even though they won’t be in the same setting together.

On Shin Min-ah’s birthday, here’s the timeline of her relationship with the Uncontrollably Affect star.

A staff member told Soompi how positive and professional they were during filming, “I was impressed with how passionately they worked on set, even though they were pressed with such busy schedules. It was moving to see them take care of the staff during the breaks.
