Is this the birth of another K-Pop couple?
Former YG Entertainment singer Se7en (real name Choi Dong Wook) and “My Girl” actress Lee Da Hae has allegedly been found dating. The couple was revealed to be in a relationship by South Korean media outlet Sports Chosun.
According to the report, the same-age couple has been close friends for quite some time. They eventually became lovers a year ago after “standing by each other during difficult times”. Their friends and families are also well aware of their relationship and they have been sighted on dates by the public.
As both of them have frequent schedules in countries like Thailand and Hong Kong, they meet up publicly when they are abroad. However, when they are in Korea, they keep a low profile and often go on “car dates”.
Their respective companies have not responded.
If the rumours are true, this would be Se7en’s 2nd public relationship after ending his 12-year romance with Park Han Byul in 2014 but it would be Lee’s 1st public relationship.
UPDATE (7th September, 12:15pm):
The labels for Se7en and Lee Da Hae have confirmed that the couple are indeed in a relationship.
In a statement, Se7en’s agency, ELEVEN9, expressed:
“The pair became a source of strength for each other during difficult times and have been dating with good feelings for months. Thank you for loving our artist and we ask that you continue to look upon our artist warmly and support him.”
Lee Da Hae’s label JS Pictures also corroborated the news, explaining, “Lee Da Hae and Se7en are same-age friends that naturally became lovers and started dating. We ask that you look upon their dating warmly and continue to be interested in their artist activities.”
Dispatch has also jumped on the bandwagon, releasing several photos of the couple allegedly on a date in a hotel in Thailand. The news outlet explained that the photos were taken around mid-August, and the couple also visited Macao together back in April.
