On September 21, f(x) member Luna was spotted with an unknown male on the street in Hongjae-dong, located in Seodaemun District. Media outlet known as The Fact was able to capture photos of these two laughing and talking while waiting for a bus at a bus stop. According to this outlet, Luna’s male friend was seen with his arm around her shoulder, and they were also seen patting each other on the back, as well as other kinds of ‘skinship.’ The two of them were seemingly not very conscious of their surroundings.
A regular citizen who saw Luna and her friend said that the two looked very close, joking around a lot with each other and appeared to be on a date.
However, when asked about their relationship, a representative of SM Entertainment denied the rumors and explained, “Luna was on her way to church on that morning. The man next to her is a close childhood friend and they attend the same church. He is not her boyfriend. From what we know, she currently does not have a boyfriend.”
