On November 26, a representative of Woolim Entertainment said, “L had been in a relationship for about four months with the girl from the September rumors. At that time, L had brought it up with the agency. To protect their artist, the company had to conceal the matter. We would like to sincerely apologize about this. When the rumors started in September, Infinite was in their world tour and the two had not even had a chance to see each other. We would like it if L, his girlfriend, and his fans were no longer hurt by this issue.”
The official statement comes after Kim Do Yeon took to Twitter, saying that she could not handle the internet abuse she was receiving after the rumors started about the two in September. She verbally confirmed that the two were actually dating and that she would report the netizens who bullied her to the police.
