Kang Ha Neul has addressed rumors that he is romantically involved with female rapper Cheetah.
In a recent interview, the “Empire of Lust” actor discussed a variety of topics, including the rumor of him being in a relationship with Cheetah. “It’s not always the case, but having your every move analyzed can honestly be a big cause of stress,” he said.
In particular, Kang Ha Neul discussed fan speculation that he was dating Cheetah after seeing her appear frequently on his Instagram. “She’s just a good friend. I feel so sorry to her for what happened,” he said. “I would have to be an idiot to announce my girlfriend on Instagram for everyone to see. She was in a relationship at the time but broke up because of me. I still can’t contact her because of that,” he admitted. He also added, “I want to express everything I feel openly, but there are things that I am forced to hide. I am doing all I can to maintain control over those things.”
Meanwhile, Kang Ha Neul plays the part of Jin, the pleasure-seeking son-in-law of the king of Joseon, in the upcoming film “Empire of Lust.” The film will premiere March 5.
