After a whirlwind romance that ended two weeks after going public, actors Han So-hee and Ryu Jun-yeol are getting back to work — but not together.

The two actors will not be appearing in the upcoming drama series “Delusion” together, according to its producer Showbox on Tuesday.

It had been reported that the two were in discussions with casting directors for “Delusion,” an adaptation of the webtoon of the same name, even up to Monday.

“It’s true the two actors discussed casting with the producers of ‘Delusion’ but have decided to halt such discussions, especially as nothing had been confirmed,” Showbox told local news outlets on Tuesday.

Instead, Ryu reportedly went into shooting for the movie “Book of Revelation” (translated) on Tuesday.

The movie is directed by Yeon Sang-ho, known for films “Train to Busan” (2016) and “The King of Pigs” (2011), as well as Netflix series “Hellbound” (2021-). “Book of Revelation” follows the story of a pastor who, after his daughter goes missing, receives divine guidance that a devotee is the perpetrator behind her disappearance.

Han’s next work, the second season of Netflix’s historical thriller series “Gyeongseong Creature,” is slated for release this year.

Han’s agency 9ato Entertainment said on Saturday that the “two realized their roles as actors were more important,” along with confirmation of the couple’s split.

Hyeri, Ryu’s ex-girlfriend who had been mixed up in Han and Ryu’s relationship ever since they went public, is also starting a new project. She will be in Bangkok, Thailand filming the movie “Tropical Night” (translated) according to reports on Monday.

Han and Ryu went public with their relationship through their agencies on March 18 after reports emerged that the two were spotted together in Hawaii. The two confirmed their split through their agencies on Saturday.
