What are fans saying now?
In this article, you will get to know what started these rumors, as well as the answers to all of these questions. Continue reading to find out more.
As said earlier, Jisoo and Son Heung Min were first shipped together in 2019. Jisoo attended one of the Spurs games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in England as a tourist. She posted a story of the game, which captured Son making a goal. Fans also saw that though she was visiting with her staff, Jisoo was wearing matching bracelets with Son. A mere coincidence? Fans thought so until they were once again noticed to be in the same place at the same time. Jisoo was touring Europe with Blackpink while Son was there for a game. Even though they were only in the same continent, it was enough for fans to think they had something going on. Far fetched? Fans thought not.
These rumors once again came to the surface in October this year when both the stars flew back from France on the same day. Jisoo had gone to Paris to attend the fashion week. Son traveled back from Paris for the 2022 Fifa World Cup Asia qualifier. Then what made the rumors go off again? It was the fact that Son’s team was stationed in London. Yes, and he flew back to South Korea from Paris. Coincidence?
YG Entertainment’s Statement
Jisoo’s managing agency YG Entertainment has denied any claim or rumor of her dating the football star. They have labeled all these occurrences as mere coincidences and asked to stop spreading unreasonable false rumors. This official statement was made recently after international fans also got involved and invested in the South Korean star’s affairs. To stop any damage to Jisoo’s reputation, they declared these dating rumors to be untrue. So, according to them, Jisoo is single and not dating the footballer or anyone else. But fans are still not convinced.
This was not the first time Son Heung Min was shipped with someone. Back in 2014, he was rumored to be dating Girl’s Day Minah, and the next year it was Yoo So-young. So what is the difference this time, and why are fans doting more on these two? How is this rumor different from any other rumor that Son Heung Min was a part of?
It seems like Son always spoke about these rumors until now. He has publicly addressed the dating rumors on both accounts before Jisoo. But he has never once publicly acknowledged the dating rumors surrounding him and Jisoo. This gave fans hope at the possibility of them being in a secret relationship. They are now keeping their eyes open and trained on both the stars to uncover the truth.
