It’s Official: South Korean Actor Ahn Bo Hyun Dating Blackpink’s Jisoo
Rumours about the pair’s romantic involvement had been circulating since they were spotted together in Seoul, South Korea. The news sent fans into a frenzy of excitement and anticipation. However, the joyous response from fans escalated even further when the agencies confirmed the relationship, making it the first time that news about Jisoo’s love life has been officially acknowledged through her agency. As the oldest member of Blackpink, Jisoo holds a significant position within the group, while Ahn Bo Hyun has made a name for himself as both a model and a talented actor.
According to Dispatch, a Korean paparazzi outlet, Jisoo and Ahn Bo Hyun were seen together at Jisoo’s place in Yongsan. The actor even visited Jisoo after her return from an overseas tour with Blackpink, adding fuel to the already rampant speculations.
This revelation has sparked a wave of happiness and well-wishes from fans, who are now hoping to witness more K-pop idols and Korean actors embrace open and accessible relationships without the constraints imposed by their agencies. Social media platforms worldwide have been flooded with Jisoo and Ahn Bo Hyun’s dating news, with one fan highlighting how this year has been particularly remarkable for K-pop idols and actors finding love openly. Couples like IU, Jong Suk, and Lee Do Hyun and Lim Ji Yeon were also confirmed earlier this year, signalling a shift in the Korean entertainment industry towards a more accepting stance on celebrity relationships.
In the past, agencies were known for keeping K-pop idols’ romantic relationships under wraps, and many had strict contract terms prohibiting them from dating other celebrities. However, the industry is slowly removing these controversial restrictions, allowing idols more personal freedom in their love lives.
