Are wedding bells ringing soon for SNSD Girls’ Generation’s Jessica Jung and her rumoured boyfriend, Tyler Kwon?
Well, word on the street that the ice princess may soon get married to her alleged boyfriend, Tyler Kwon. The rings on their ring fingers sparked rumours that Jessica is already engaged to her Korean-American boyfriend. They were both spotted wearing matching rings multiple times at various locations.
In fact, it was reported that Tyler Kwon was spotted in the crowd during Jessica’s LiNing fan meeting in Guangzhou, China on 6th September.
According to Hong Kong news outlet Shu Nam Zi Xian, Tyler was said to be having a great time with Jessica’s parents during her fan meeting. To add further fuel to the dating rumour, the news outlet reported that both of them were spotted dating after the fan meeting.
Earlier in March, an insider in the industry told Korean news outlet Hanguk Kyungjae that Jessica has been dating a Korean-American, Tyler Kwon since 2013. Tyler Kwon is best known for his friendship with some of the top idols and international celebrities, including Donnie Yen, Jackie Chan, and G-Dragon. In fact, he is the CEO of the New York based Coridel Group, which has ties to investments in Korean entertainment. He has previously dated the Hong Kong singer/actress Gillian Chung but the two broke up in 2013.
But, it seems like Tyler has quickly moved on from his previously relationship as Jessica and Tyler were spotted going on a shopping trip in Korea during Christmas last year. The photo above quickly became a hot issue on the web and netizens further found a pictures of them together during an award ceremony in Macau in October last year.
However, Jessica’s agency SM Entertainment denied the dating rumour and made an official statement that they were just close friends.
The wedding rumour took us back to 2010, where Jessica stated in KBS2 variety program, “Happy Birthday”, that she wanted to get married at the age of 26. At that time, she explained that she intended to get married at the age of 23 but changed her mind and decided to put it on hold. She also said, “I’m still unfamiliar with the whole process of getting pregnant and giving birth. Also, thinking about the pain of giving birth to a child makes me a bit scared.”
Now that she is 25-year-old, can we assume that Jessica might want to keep her original plan of getting married at the age of 26? And if the rumour is legit, Jessica will be the 5th member in SNSD Girls’ Generation to be in a relationship and the first member to tie the knot! Wow! That escalated quickly.
What do you think of the wedding rumour? Should Jessica publicly announce her relationship to the world or continue to keep their relationship out of the limelight?
