Han Jisung: Love and Relationships
The members of Stray Kids have gathered much attention and praise since their debut. Their talent, concept, musical style, and energetic dancing have caught everyone’s eyes. They have become one of the most popular boy bands, with many international fans. The Stray Kids called their fans STAYS. When they interviewed with the Z100 Studio, they revealed the meaning behind their fandom name. They explained that when you remove R from Stray Kids, it becomes STAY, and this R is the Reason Stays are with them. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful sentiment and it seems that the Stray Kids love their fans as much as their fans love them.
In an interview, they revealed their “ideal types.” This was a matter of much interest for the fans, who wanted to know more about the personal choices of their favorite idols – also known as biases. Han Jisung’s ideal type is a girl who is hardworking like him and is quick and smart. Someone who can catch his attention and keep it, someone who can laugh with him. He wants a girl who has lots of charisma and gives him as much attention as he needs. It’s fine if she’s a bit clingy and loving, but he also needs someone who can give him tough love, and keep him on his toes. Obviously, she should be someone who really loves listening to music, and it’s an added bonus if she can help him write songs. More than a partner, Han wants her to be his best friend. Further, he said she should be born between 1998 and 2005.
Understandably, he has kept his dating life private but according to JYPE, he isn’t dating anyone. There were some rumors circulating him dating a girl he met during one of the rumors, but they are unconfirmed.
Han Jisung and Lee Know:
Back in 2019, in Weekly Idol, a funny thing happened. Lee Know was the leader of one of the teams, and Han, Changbin, and Hyunjin all wanted spots in his team. In order to decide, Lee Know asked them to show their charms. A very talented rapper, Han rapped about Lee Know’s handsome looks, making it up as he went, calling him his shining light. He then went on to rap how he’d be a perfect boyfriend to Lee Know, and asked him to hold his hand and pick him. In a dramatic way, he ended the rapsong with “I love you.”

Last year in December, the STAYs took to Twitter and spread the message (as a prank) that Dispatch has revealed Lee Know and Han to be one of the couples. There was no truth to it and it was just for fun. For all formal and official purposes, Han remains single.
