Tina Jung is a Korean-Canadian actress who recently starred in Firestarter as Ms. Gardner. Kim's Convenience, No Sleep 'Til Christmas, Queen of the Morning Calm, and Strays are among her other credits.
Jung has gained notoriety as the supposed love interest of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' lead actor Simu Liu, in addition to her growing acting career.
The two actors shared the screen in the CBC Television drama Kim's Convenience, where Liu played one of Jung Kim's lead characters while Jung guest-starred as Jeanie Park in two episodes in 2016.
Tina Jung & Simu Liu Were Dating, Right?
As previously stated, Jung and Liu's alleged connection began when they met and worked together in Kim's Convenience in 2016.
Although some rumors claim that the reported couple met previously and originally collaborated on The CW's Beauty and the Beast, this is not the case. Despite the fact that Jung and Liu worked on the show, they only appeared in one episode each — Jung in 2016 and Liu in 2015.
Returning to their suspected romance, after they starred in, co-wrote, and co-produced the 2017 short film Meeting Mommy, fans were convinced they were dating.
Around the same time, Liu apparently posted a photo of herself with Jung on Instagram, with the message,
“Hanging out at the top of the rock and being a little tourist n all.”
Next year, Jung shared photos from the debut of Meeting Mommy at the Asians on Film Festival in Los Angeles, California, with Liu and Tricia Lee, the director of their short film.
Since then, neither Jung nor Liu have posted anything on their Instagram accounts about each other. In regards to their dating rumors, neither of them has confirmed or denied them.
Tina Jung & Simu Liu Are Still Dating?
As previously stated, the stars have yet to confirm or deny Jung and Liu's dating claims. As a result, it's not entirely clear that they were dating.
Similarly, it has been proved that nothing has linked them since 2018. They haven't collaborated or featured each other on their social media accounts.
Furthermore, Liu's Vanity Fair interview from June 2021 provided us an indication that he wasn't seeing Jung at the time — but only if we consider the two were dating at the time.
He mentioned in the interview that he was aiming to impress a "nice female" while performing stunts on the sets of Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
“There was a cute girl on the crew that I was trying to impress during a very elaborate stunt.”
“I winked at her and, when I started running, proceeded to lose my balance, fall, banged my knee, and ended up sprawled out 12 feet in the air.”
With Liu attempting to impress a female crew member and no news on Jung and Liu's apparent relationship, only one conclusion can be drawn. And it's because they weren't together from the beginning, and even if they were, they aren't now.

Jung now does not appear to be in a romantic relationship and hence does not have a boyfriend. Similarly, there are no previous records of her marrying. Following the great success of his debut Marvel film, Liu appears to be embracing his days as a single guy.
