Does Anna Sawai Have A Boyfriend? Dating And Relationship

The Ninja Assassin actress doesn’t have a publicly disclosed boyfriend for now. As of this writing, she is alleged to be single.

Her admirers often ship her with her co-stars; for instance, fans ship Sawai with her Pachinko co-actor Jin Ha, who portrayed Solomon Baek in the series.

However, the truth is that the two are colleagues and do not have any romantic connection. Still, some are not ready to perceive it because the journey of friendship to lovers has been frequently displayed in Hollywood.

If that’s the case, then the time will tell!
