Brown Eyed Girls member Ga In and actor Joo Ji Hoon are officially a couple, according to APOP Entertainment, the singer’s agency. Rumors had been circulating about a possible romantic link between the two stars since Joo Ji Hoon starred in the video for Gain’s solo single “Fxxk U,” from the mini-album “Truth or Dare” earlier this year.
The actor had never appeared in a music video before, and his sudden cameo sparked great curiosity among fans of both stars. Indeed, some of the scenes in the video were particularly steamy, leading some to speculate that the chemistry between the two was not purely fictional.
According to Gain’s media representative, quoted in a story reported by MyDaily, the pair have been close friends for some time, but a romantic bond has formed between them “in the past one or two months.”
The representative explained that the reason that the news was not released sooner was that the couple felt the time was not right. The spokesperson said, “With so many people still grieving the victims of the Sewol ferry disaster, we didn’t want to make an announcement of this sort. It’s a very personal matter.”
Yonhap News also reported that spokesperson from the agency had said, “They started to get to know each other a lot better after the music video was shot. They became very close and eventually started dating.”
