On the morning of March 24, 2024, Kim Sae Ron posted the controversial photo of herself and actor Kim Soo Hyun without any explanation and deleted it within three minutes. The photo showed her placing her cheek against his in an affectionate manner and although it was deleted in a short time, spread like wildfire on the internet!

It was revealed by OSEN's exclusive report that the photo was in the past and concluded that the two were not in a relationship. Kim Soo Hyun's agency denied the rumors saying, "The rumor of love is unfounded. It seems that the photos that are posted online were taken when they were in the same agency in the past."

Netizens accused Kim Sae Ron as being "impulsive" and "unstable" with her public image. As the story become progressively more controversial, Kim Sae Ron apologized for her "impulsiveness" and "instability".

Kim Sae Ron had cut off any communication with friends and family throughout this ordeal. It seemed that Sae Ron wanted to show her support for Kim Soo Hyun due to his popularity in his current drama Queen of Tears.
