Still going strong! The Act alum Joey King and boyfriend Steven Piet went public with their romance in 2019 when they were spotted packing on the PDA at LAX Airport  — and the dynamic duo are still going strong. Here are a few fast facts about the Hollywood pro and his relationship with the Golden Globe nominee.

According to his IMDB page, the filmmaker is just that — and he’s worked on almost every aspect of the process. Before his stint on The Act (where he also directed two episodes in addition to producing, so it seems that may have been where the couple met), he produced 10 episodes of the SYFY series Nightflyers. He also directed seven episodes of the acclaimed horror anthology series Channel Zero in 2017.

Steven also has writing, cinematography and camera department credits for several indie productions in the earlier years of his career. According to Seventeen, he and his creative partner, director Erik Crary, signed a deal with Universal Content Productions in 2019.

The film pro is also a proud Chicago native, according to his bio, where he was raised on the south side of the city. He also attended the Savannah College of Art and Design to major in Film. Clearly, things have been paying off for him career-wise.

As for Joey, the last time we saw her shacking up with someone, it was Euphoria breakout star Jacob Elordi. He and Joey met on the set of their Netflix movie, The Kissing Booth, in 2017. The then-couple got ~so much hype~ that fans and followers started creating social media accounts dedicated to them, dubbing their ‘ship name “Jacob and Joey.”

The twosome — who were totally unafraid to show off their love on during their relationship — broke things off in spring 2019. Confirmation of their split came after his then-girlfriend, Cari Flowers, posted a now-deleted PDA photo of herself and Jacob sharing a smooch. Jacob has since moved on with girlfriend Kaia Gerber.

Joey and Jacob starred in The Kissing Booth 2 together and reprised their romantic roles, but it appears the pair have no bad blood. According to photos and videos from Joey’s Instagram during filming, things were cordial and fun between the former flames on set.
