It’s been two years of on-and-off speculation, but Taeyang (BIGBANG) and Min Hyorin of JYP have been officially confirmed to be in a relationship!
In a move that’s very unlike YG Entertainment (YGE), both artistes’ agencies released official statements on 2 June confirming the fact that Taeyang and Hyorin are indeed dating. And the couple apparently have been ever since Hyorin starred in Taeyang’s ‘1AM’ MV. Coincidentally, she was reported to have been recommended for the role by Kiko Mizuhara, G-Dragon’s (BIGBANG) rumoured girlfriend.
As mentioned, their dating rumours aren’t fresh news. It’s been two years of netizen speculations whenever the pair are seen sporting couple items, or spotted out together, not to mention Hyorin’s ‘suspicious’ postings on Instagram.
Plus she was also the poster girl (literally) for Taeyang’s ‘Eyes, Nose, Lips’ MV – although the song was probably written pre-Hyorin – which fuelled rumours once again.
Indeed, the idiom ‘there’s no smoke without fire’ (no pun intended) has been proven right yet again. To quote YGE, “It’s Taeyang’s first girlfriend. It is something to congratulate and the YG family are all congratulating him. His experience in dating I believe will help him in his music and on stage.“
While congratulations are in order, we’re super stoked because this just shows that wishes do come true – Taeyang has found his bae and no longer needs to sing about needing a girl. Just kidding, all the best Taeyang and Hyorin!
