PSY and Girls’ Generation’s YoonA
Yesterday’s news of PSY and YoonA dating, first reported by Chinese media, is perhaps the most ridiculous K-Pop celebrity gossip of all time. , Moreover, the report was based on a photo of YoonA walking with some random Asian dude, making it one of the worst K-Pop rumors we’ve seen in recent years.
Super Junor’s Leeteuk and Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon
We hate to bring this up now, especially just a week after Leeteuk’s enlistment, but a lot of SM fans were actually expecting this to be true. In 2010, Leeteuk and Taeyeon were seen wearing the same bunny-shaped earrings at different press events, leading to netizen speculation of the two dating. SM Entertainment later had to publicly address the issue and say it was just a coincidence.
2PM’s Taecyeon and Girls’ Generation’s Jessica
This rumor too has been going on for some time now, but both SM Entertainment and JYP Entertainment publicly denied their dating reports. They were spotted on a brunch date last October and also several times having coffee together last year, but rumors are just rumors!
Big Bang’s G-Dragon and Japanese model Kiko Mizuhara
The two have been linked since 2010 after Japanese media first broke reports of the two dating. Although both parties publicly denied the rumors, another photo of the two at an amusement park surfaced online in 2011, sparking further netizen speculation.
Soccer player Ki Sung Yong and 2NE1’s Dara
In 2010, Ki Sung Yong wrote on his friend’s mini-homepage, “Sandara Park is mine……^^” A few weeks later, Dara wrote on her Me2Day, “I want to visit Scotland^^ keke,” to which Ki Sung Yong responded, “Scotland is cold~~^^” However, after their dating rumor started to get over exaggerated, Ki Sung Yong wrote on his personal website, “I don’t have any time to date anyone, so please don’t worry.”
Park Yoochun and Park Min Young
It’s pretty common to see rumors of drama co-stars dating each other these days. But Park Yoochun and Park Min Young were fan-favorites through their roles in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” and a lot of fans were actually disappointed to hear it was just rumors. In fact, some netizens criticized the drama producers for deliberately leaking the rumor to hype up the drama.
Big Bang’s Seungri and Japanese model Anna Kubo
This past September, Seungri was swept up in a dating scandal with Japanese model and actress Anna Kubo, also known as Jackie Chan’s son Jaycee Chan’s ex-girlfriend. Photos and videos of the two holding hands and hugging were leaked online, but YG Entertainment later addressed the issue and said, “Nothing amounting to a scandal has occurred.”
2AM’s Seulong and Wonder Girls’ Sohee
In January 2012, paparazzi photos of 2AM’s Seulong and Wonder Girls’ Sohee on a Christmas shopping date made headlines. The two seemed pretty close to each other in the photos, but JYP Entertainment immediately came out in public and denied the rumors, saying they’re just “really good friends.”
Big Bang’s G-Dragon and After School’s Lizzy
Perhaps the least publicized rumor, Big Bang’s G-Dragon was rumored to be dating After School’s Lizzy recently. Lizzy later denied the rumor on “Weekly Idol,” saying, “I don’t even have his phone number or Kakao ID.”
