When rumours surfaced claiming that Jung Hae In (정해인) was dating his “Snowdrop” co-star Jisoo (지수), we rolled our eyes. Here we go, another baseless rumour again…
However, netizens began raising suspicion that the two are dating after the actor uploaded a post on his Instagram in conjunction with the BLACKPINK member’s birthday yesterday (Monday, 3rd January).
For those in the dark, Jisoo officially turned 27 yesterday. Many BLINKs as well as loved ones (such as her beloved bandmates) took to their social media to send their warm birthday wishes to the idol. In particular, Hae In’s cheeky “move” has sent fans into a frenzy mode. He posted an image of a paper airplane on his IG.
If you’ve been following the series so far, then you’d know that the item is a reference to Im Soon Ho and Eun Young Ro (Hae In and Jisoo’s respective characters in “Snowdrop”). According to KBIZoom, the drama’s finale was filmed a long time ago and the plane may have crumpled, yet, it still made an “appearance” on the actor’s social media.
Following this, a lot of fans drew speculations that it is “no mere coincidence” that the K-drama heartthrob has kept an item related to his co-star for so long. On the other hand, some are also skeptical about Jisoo and Jung Hae In‘s close relationship especially following the end of “Snowdrop” filming.
With that being said, it can also be pointed out that the rumours surrounding Jisoo and Hae In’s romance are simply just that: rumors. Many assumed that the paper plane post simply indicates Jung Hae In‘s heartwarming shoutout towards his co-star on her birthday.
Speaking of Jisoo, the K-pop star appeared to address the numerous controversies surrounding the currently-aired drama, including the history distortion allegations as well as the backlash over her acting skills. The “As If It’s Your Last” jam-maker recently sat down for an interview following a pictorial for Dazed Magazine Korea.
She revealed to the publication, “I wanted to challenge (myself) boldly and fearlessly as always. The road may not always be smooth, but I will do my best without regret. And I want to continue to look into myself and become a better person.”
“Everything I did was possible thanks to BLINK’s full support,” Jisoo further added in the interview. “I hope you can walk with me in 2022 as well.” She also expressed her gratitude towards her fan club, “We will come back with better performances, so I hope we can be happy together. I love you.”
