The source said, “The report released today about them dating is false. They only have a close senior-junior relationship.”
On August 1 around 6 a.m. KST, Newsis released an exclusive report claiming that Lee Jong Suk and Kwon Nara were dating.
According to Newsis’s sources, Lee Jong Suk and Kwon Nara recently went from a friendly senior-junior relationship to a romantic relationship. Lee Jong Suk reportedly was introduced to Kwon Nara while she was still a Hello Venus member and directly contacted her to invite her to join his agency, A-MAN Project.
One of Newsis’s sources claimed that Lee Jong Suk is essentially the CEO of A-MAN Project and that he put a lot of effort into recruiting her into his agency. Newsis’s report also stated that people had seen the two on dates, including at Lee Jong Suk’s café in the Sinsa neighborhood in Seoul.
When asked for a statement, a source from A-MAN Project stated, “We will check the truth of this report.”
Kwon Nara joined Lee Jong Suk’s agency in June after Hello Venus disbanded and she left her longtime agency, Fantagio Entertainment. Meanwhile, Lee Jong Suk enlisted in March as a public service worker.
