BTS’ Jungkook (정국) has apparently been caught up in another round of dating rumours. This time around, rumours have been spreading like wildfire, stating that the idol is currently in a relationship with actress Lee Yoo Bi (이유비).
The recent allegation started after a netizen came up with several proofs on his YouTube page, claiming to the viewers that Jungkook and the 31-year-old starlet are an item. According to him, the rumoured couple first met in 2018.
As per KpopStarz, the YouTuber’s assertion can be summed up in five points. First of all, he claimed that Yoo Bi is a fan of the idol and often uses purple heart emoji on her social media postings. The second being that the actress shared a photo of her outing the day when Jungkook’s self-quarantine period ended. The latter was also said to have posted the same emoji on social media.
The third point claims that the duo were spotted sporting matching sweatshirts and bracelets. The actress also (allegedly) revealed that her dream guy is someone with beautiful eyes and masculine charm, apart from naming September (Jungkook’s birthday month) as her favourite month. Last but not least, the YouTuber claimed that Jungkook’s brother and Lee Yu Bi’s sister follow each other online.
It didn’t take long before the representatives from both sides came forward to shut down all the claims by the YouTuber. While Big Hit Music stated to media outlet Sports Today that they are “checking the facts”, the “Yumi’s Cells” star’s agency made it clear that she doesn’t even know the BTS member personally.
“I’ve heard about the dating rumors a couple of times. But as far as I know, she doesn’t even personally know Jungkook. I’ve asked her before and she said she knows Suga though,” an insider from the company said. “When I asked her about the dating rumors, she just laughed. She was laughing because it was obviously false.”
The 24-year-old idol has been involved in numerous dating rumours over the course of his idol career, and one of them is with a tattooist named Lee Mijoo. For those interested, you can read the full story here.
