K-Pop idols getting involved in dating rumors is nothing new, as plenty of netizens have speculated on certain idols dating due to their behaviors. However, there have been some dating rumors that were speculated for ridiculous reasons. Here’s a list of some of the most ridiculous dating rumors seen in K-Pop.
1. Yoona (Girls’ Generation) & PSY
These two got involved in a dating rumor in 2012 when there was a photo circulating of Yoona with a male who looked like PSY. Some netizens started spreading rumors that the two were dating, and it would have been big news, as PSY was already married.
Yoona quickly ended the rumors and stated that the person in question was a cameraman who happened to resemble PSY.
2. Jungkook (BTS) & Nayeon (TWICE)
In the past, some fans started to suspect Jungkook and Nayeon were dating because they seemingly were exchanging glances with each other.
There were also some speculations since Jungkook excitedly reacted to Nayeon’s wrestling match on Idol School Athletic Championships. However, despite this “evidence” by some fans, these were just simple speculations.
3. G-Dragon (BIGBANG) & Dara (Former member of 2NE1)
These two got involved in dating rumors when some fans started noticing that the two were posting photos on their social media accounts wearing similar clothing and striking similar poses.
However, these two have always admitted that they see each other as family and that they don’t understand when they get involved in dating rumors.
I don’t really understand because were really like family. So… ah, yuck. We’re really close so there’s nothing special about it.
4. BamBam (GOT7) & Irene (Red Velvet)
Some netizens started speculating that BamBam and Irene were dating when BamBam once changed his Instagram profile description. He changed it from a cake emoji to the letters IR, then to a heart, eyes, and ring emoji.
Some started to speculate that the cake was referring to Red Velvet’s “Ice Cream Cake”, and the IR was supposed to refer to Irene. BamBam was quick to shut down these rumors.
5. Jimin (BTS) & Jeongyeon (TWICE)
This is more of a running joke between ONCEs and ARMYs, but some have speculated that Jimin and Jeongyeon have a bad relationship with each other. This rumor started because of a few “interactions” between the two, such as when Jeongyeon seemingly had a cold expression once she saw Jimin on screen.
Some started to speculate that they were once dating each other and had a bad break up. While fans may never get an answer to this, it did give a good laugh to the two fandoms.
