Word on the street is that WINNER’s Nam Tae Hyun (남태현) and “The King Of Dramas” star Jung Ryeo Won (정려원) are dating.
Korean media outlet Xports News reported that the alleged couple met through a mutual friend and has been dating for a year. The source also explained that the 2 stars grew close due to similar interests in arts and that they were spotted on a date at a cafe in Shinsa-dong, Gangnam a few days ago.
However, Jung Ryeo Won’s agency has since stepped up to deny the news, stating that the rumours are “completely false”. YG Entertainment has yet to respond.
In a statement, KeyEast Entertainment said, “Nam Tae Hyun and Jung Ryeo Won are just friends. They are not dating. We are startled by the news.”
According to some fans, dating rumours sparked because some of their Instagram posts were identical, causing netizens to believe that the 2 share a “lovestagram”, a term used by Koreans when a couple shares similar posts at the same time.
While the 35-year-old Korean-Australian actress is currently looking over projects, Nam Tae Hyun is taking a break from WINNER’s activities due to problems affecting his psychological health that he has been facing since he was a trainee.
