In October 2013, they were spotted going on a date where Seung Gi picked Yoona up at an apartment before heading off to the Han River area. But they denied dating until they were “caught” going out on their basement carpark dates by the paparazzi. They look really adorable together and to us, totally fit the image of the title Nation’s Couple.

Rumours of Jung Kyung Ho and Sooyoung dating made headlines way before the official announcement was made 2 days after Yoona was revealed to be dating. Like all Korean celebrities, they denied it until they were spotted at a Christmas Eve party at Sooyoung’s house. Finally, SM Entertainment confirmed it by saying, “The dating rumors are true. While they were close as sunbae and hoobae last year, their relationship progressed into that of a couple. Please watch over them fondly.”
Tiffany and 2PM’s Nichkhun
Announced: 4th April 2014
The two were spotted having a lovely date at an Asian fusion restaurant in March 2014. Although the idols were trying very hard to not be seen or draw attention to themselves, witnesses noticed their affection for each other. After which, their respective agencies confirmed that they were a couple. SM Entertainment’s rep told Mydaily News, “After being friends, the two grew closer to become lovers.” while JYP Entertainment’s rep told TV Report, “As the reports say, Nichkhun and Tiffany have been dating for about four months now. Please look towards them kindly.”

The news of the first three mentioned created quite a stir but nothing could beat the amount of attention these two got. Korean media outlet Dispatch reported that Baekhyun and Taeyeon have been dating in secrecy even though Baekhyun did mention in an interview that he wouldn’t date until he was much older. After being spotted going on a date and after SM Entertainment’s confirmation of their relationship, fans from both sides were shocked and many felt hurt because of the Instagram posts the fans thought were addressed to them may have been secret coded messages addressed to each other instead.
Yuri and baseball player Oh Seung Hwan
Announced: 20th April 2015
The newest member to join the In-A-Relationship Club, the couple have been spotted together since last November. Some say their relationship is common knowledge among the baseball fans. Oh Seung Hwan was in Korea during November and December 2014, and the two reportedly met up often during the two months. We feel that this is a good match! The ever sporty Black Pearl getting together with a sportsman.
Hyo Yeon and author Kim Joon Hyung
A can full of worms was opened when someone made a police report against Hyoyeon for accidentally hitting him in April 2014. That “someone” is no other than Hyoyeon’s then boyfriend Kim Jun Hyung, they dated for two years before calling it quits. An insider revealed that the joking around the hitting incident grew into a big issue and it got too burdensome for the two to continue to meet.
Jessica and entrepreneur Tyler Kwon
Chinese media outlet Sina released photos of the rumored couple shopping at a children’s clothing store in Hong Kong. The report stated, “Following her leave from Girls’ Generation, Jessica has started residing in Hong Kong and moved to Tyler Kwon’s apartment in Seymour Road where they have been living together.” Though there are loads of photos supporting claims that they are a couple, neither side has confirmed the relationship.
