MBLAQ’s G.O has personally confirmed that he is dating actress Choi Ye Seul!
He took to his personal Instagram account and uploaded a photo with the actress as he wrote, “This morning, a few welcome names were high on the search rankings. We were planning on personally sharing the news in the near future, so it’s unfortunate that an article was published first, but it’s okay because it’s good news. To be honest, the most unfortunate thing here is my photo that’s being used.”
He went on to say, “Though I haven’t gained a lot of fame or as much success as I wanted, I’ve gone through a lot of things for over 10 years since my debut in 2007. What I felt most that it’s very difficult to have and keep someone by my side. I felt the pressure to always be someone who is needed in work, love, and friendship, and there were so few people who recognized and accepted me for just who I was.”
G.O confirmed his current relationship status by revealing, “Time passed in such a way until I met someone when I was at my most ordinary state, and that person was Choi Ye Seul. She is someone who accepted and has been so considerate of so much. I am so happy. I believe that this happiness that I feel will spread to those who love me like a happy virus.”
He concluded with, “Though I may be an adult now, my mistakes never seem to end. If I am lacking or immature in any way, I hope you will be understanding of me and my actions. Thank you for reading these words. And I want to sincerely thank everyone who has been congratulating us.”
안녕하세요 지오입니다. 무술년 새해 복 많이 받으세요! 오늘 아침 반가운 이름들이 실검에 올랐네요 가까운 미래에 직접 말씀드리려 했기에 기사가 먼저 나간것이 아쉽기도 했지만 기쁜소식이라 생각합니다. 사실 가장 아쉬운건 제 사진입니다. 진짜 못났네요.. 큰 명성을 얻거나 원하는 만큼의 성과를 이뤄내진 못했지만 2007년 데뷔 후 10년이 넘는 시간동안 활동 해 오며 많은 일들을 겪었습니다. 그 중 절실히 느낀 것은 진짜 내 사람을 곁에 두기가 참 어렵다는거였어요. 일, 사랑, 친구 모든면에서 필요한 사람이 되어야 한다는 강박감이 들었고, 원초적인 저의 모습을 인정해주는 사람은 극히 드물었습니다. 그렇게 지내오다 가장 평범한 저의 모습으로 살아갈 때 인연이 된 사람이 최예슬입니다. 많은 것을 인정해주고 배려해주는 사람입니다. 저는 정말 행복합니다. 이 행복은 저를 사랑해주시는 분들께 해피바이러스가 되어 전해지리라 믿습니다. 나이가 이젠 어른이구나 해도 실수는 끊이질 않더라고요.. 제가 때로는 성숙하지못하고 부족해도 그냥 쟤는 저런 애구나 하고 너그럽게 이해해주셔요. 두서 없는 글 읽어주셔서 감사합니다. 축하 해 주시는 분들께 진심으로 감사드립니다. 새해 복 많이 받으시고 건강하세요!
Congratulations to the happy couple!

Neither G.O’s nor Choi Ye Seul’s agency can confirm the status of their relationship.
A source from the MBLAQ member’s agency explained, “G.O is currently carrying out his duties as a public service worker with a sincere attitude. Because [this news] pertains to his personal life, it is difficult for us to confirm.”
Choi Ye Seul’s supposed agency Forest Entertainment revealed that the actress is no longer with them as she left sometime last year, and had expressed she no longer wanted to pursue acting. They continued, “We are currently not in contact with her, which is why it is difficult for us to confirm her relationship with G.O.”
It appears that love may be in the air for another idol!
According to a news report on January 2, MBLAQ’s G.O and actress Choi Ye Seul have been dating for five months. Reportedly, G.O is also close with Choi Ye Seul’s family and sees them frequently.
While G.O is currently carrying out his mandatory military service as a public service worker, after enlisting back in February 2016, the couple is said to enjoy dates together whenever they can. They also reportedly traveled to Japan together back in November 2017, and spent this past Christmas together.
G.O. debuted as a member of MBLAQ back in 2009, and Choi Ye Seul is most known for her roles in dramas “Angry Mom” and “My Mom.”
