The romance was unveiled by paparazzi [Kr] recently, and the couple’s agencies have confirmed about the relationship… which is a bit surprising considering the fact that dating (especially among young idols) is still pretty much a taboo in Korean showbiz. I guess it’s too difficult to deny it when caught red handed.
Whether the relationship could survive is another story though. Fans are more rational these days, but there’s still enough over-fanatical SHINee supporters who voiced their disapproval and prompted the actress to shut down her homepage.
It remains to be seen if the relationship is going to affect their booming career or not. Good luck to the young lovebirds.
