PRISTIN’s Kyulkyung’s Agencies Deny Rumors Of Her Dating Wealthy Chinese Businessman
The rumors regarding PRISTIN member Kyulkyung’s alleged relationship with Chinese businessman Wang Sicong was denied by her Korean and Chinese agencies.
Wang Sicong is the son of Wang Jianlin, one of the richest men in China. Wang Sicong is also the founder of entertainment company Banana Project, known as Banana Culture now.
What reportedly began as false news from a Taiwanese source claiming that Wang Sicong and Kyulkyung went traveling to Japan together spread to Chinese online communities and was blown out of proportion.
On March 3, Pledis stated, “The rumors of Kyulkyung and Wang Sicong dating are false. We are considering taking legal action if the rumors continue.”
Her Chinese agency XCSS Entertainment also released an official statement saying that the claims on online platforms stating that Wang Sicong and Kyulkyung traveled together have led to misunderstandings about Kyulkyung and damaged her image.
They further stated, “We warn and heavily criticize these internet users and request the immediate deletion of these rumors. Furthermore, we ask the corresponding internet platforms to block and delete the rumors,” and added that they will take legal action if the posts are not deleted promptly.
XCSS concluded their statement saying, “We hope many internet users will rely on objective facts and the law, logically determine the truth behind information on the internet before reproducing or commenting on them, and stay within the boundaries of law while respecting the dignity and rights of others.”
Kyulkyung made her first Korean TV appearance on Mnet’s “Produce 101” and promoted as part of I.O.I after the show ended. She debuted as part of PRISTIN the following year and is currently promoting in Korea and China.
