Going back to November 2020, Chaeyoung (채영) was involved deeply in numerous dating rumours with a tattoo artist in his 30s. After the TWICE idol left a small clue about this guy in a post on Instagram, rumours started to resurface again.
For the new “bubbly for JYPnation” update, Chaeyoung showcased a few photos she had taken with her fans. Such photos include a selfie and a candid picture. But she also showed a photo of her jewellery collection which managed to grab the attention of fans.
The photo of the jewellery collection’s main focus was a picture of Andy Warhol, but something else stood out. Looking closely into the image, there is a beaded friendship bracelet with initials spelled “JSH” or “HSJ”. Fans had noticed that the initials belonged to Jung Seong Hyun (정성현), which is Chimhwasa’s real name, who is also a tattoo artist.
Is this an indication that they’re still happily attached?
Last year on 5th November, snapshots of Chaeyoung with a man in a grocery store went viral online. Even with both of their backs facing the photo, eagle-eyed fans claimed that it was the same hat Chaeyoung wore on “Radio Star”. During that time, the hair colour of the girl resembles Chaeyoung’s hair, with mint highlights alongside blonde hair. One user also claimed to have witnessed the two publicly dating on 6th August last year.
It’s good that people had no issues about the female idol dating. However, they had issues with the kind of person he is. Chimhwasa’s Instagram account was discovered by netizens with posts of “indecent” drawings. What’s more disturbing is stumbling upon a drawing of a girl that resembles Chaeyoung, which has a mole on the left side of her face.
Netizens have also stated that Chimhwasa had sent demeaning and malicious messages to users who had reached out to him via personal text messages. Some had even stated that the tattoo artist himself has videos of Chaeyoung drunk. He also allegedly threatened to leak the videos should anyone continue to disturb him regarding the dating rumours.
Earlier on, both Chaeyoung and Chimhwasa were seen wearing matching rings which led to people thinking they were couple rings. The TWICE member’s brother was also following the tattoo artist’s account, but he eventually deactivated it.
JYP Entertainment had issued a statement regarding the matter when reports started coming out, exclaiming that they had no official opinion about the rumours at hand. Since then, no statements regarding the allegations have been made by them.
