A few days after news broke about member of K-pop boyband WINNER, Nam Taehyun, taking a break due to health issues, a Korean news outlet reported that the 22-year-old is dating actress Jung Ryeowon.

The pair was reportedly introduced by acquaintances and has been dating for a year after bonding over similar interests. They were allegedly spotted on a date at Garosugil a few days before news about his hiatus broke out.

In February this year, netizens suspected that the boybander was dating someone due to the nature of his Instagram posts, or what the Koreans dub as “lovestagram”. However, he denied the allegations and announced he would stop uploading such photos since they could lead to misunderstandings. He even went on to delete said photos.

After reports were published that the singer and actress were in a relationship, fans started to question if his earlier posts were indeed “lovestagram”, or love messages directed at Ryeowon.

However, Ryeowon’s agency released a statement denying the allegations, claiming that they were unfounded, and that the 35-year-old actress herself was surprised by the rumours.

YG Entertainment, Taehyun’s agency, has yet to release a statement on the matter.
