In a crazy bit of news today, miss A’s Suzy and actor Lee Min Ho confirm they are dating. If that wasn’t enough, their agencies, JYP and StarHaus, also confirmed the news. Since the story broke, both have been trending on Twitter and Facebook as the K-Pop world reacts. Of course, some of the reactions are angry, but that’s come to be expected.
Dispatch (no surprises there!) broke the story by saying the two have been dating for two months. Starhaus and JYP released statements saying the relationship is only one-month old.
“The two of them started dating about a month ago, and they’re currently careful about their relationship. We hope everyone watches them with warmth,” Starhaus said in a statement released after Dispatch released the news. JYP Entertainment echoed the statement by saying “Suzy and Lee Min Ho have been dating for about a month. They’re just carefully starting, so we would be grateful if people look on them warmly.”
Dispatch caught wind of the relationship when, in February, the new couple would see each other in Seoul often. In March, Lee was in Paris on the 10th for a photoshoot and he flew to London to meet with Suzy; Suzy was in London on a photoshoot. They came together on March 15.
We just hope the hate from antis and fans alike that is sure to arise within the next few days to weeks won’t deter the duo, especially with miss A making a comeback with “Colors” in a few days. But we already see how Netizens are reacting and saying Suzy’s image is at stake.
[+283, -88] I know that for a 20 something year old, you’re at an age where you want to love.. but Suzy-ya, you should’ve thought this over more before spending 3 nights with him… Your image will take a huge hit from this.
[+39, -6] It was wrong of Suzy to be so careless ahead of her comeback. If she’s going to date, at least make sure you don’t get caught. Everyone knows that Suzy’s the one that gets the most attention in miss A so if she adds a public relationship on top of that, the focus will be on her relationship with Lee Min Ho. I’m sure the other miss A members and her company will feel bitter about it.
[+24, -3] Suzy isn’t doing anything bad to her group ㅋㅋㅋ She’s the one keeping them afloat to begin with. Anyway, isn’t Fei and Jia’s ideal guy Lee Min Ho??? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
[+23, -6] It’s been a while since Suzy dropped from being the trend anyway ㅋ
[+20, -6] IU – Suzy – Yoona – Kim Tae Hee – Moon Geun Young. Bye bye bye.. all women with boyfriends, bye bye bye. Let’s all leave for Hani, men.
[+20, -5] There’s nothing wrong with her dating but she is the icon of first love and naive, innocent emotions… so for someone like that to be caught in a hotel for 3 days with a boyfriend she’s only been with for a month… well, her image is over now ㅋ She’s on the same boat with IU because of a man.
You know what, this is great news! We love when our idols are allowed to date and experience happiness. If this relationship works out, hooray! But, we’ll see. Hopefully the nation doesn’t turn on Suzy or miss A because of the news.
What are your thoughts on the relationship? Let us know!
