Rumours have surfaced about a romantic relationship between actor Kang Dong-won (42) and Black Pink's Rose (26).
Previously, online communities were filled with rumours of a romantic relationship between Kang Dong-won and Rose. It is suspected that the two were spotted wearing matching brand and design necklaces like a couple and also wore the same outerwear, possibly to show off their affection for each other.
Furthermore, it has been noted that the two attended an art fair held at COEX last year and are known to be close with famous overseas fashion influencers.
Even when rumours of Rose's false drug use surfaced in the Chinese media, the rumour of a romantic relationship between the two spread based on the fact that Kang Dong-won attended the meeting.
Although Kang Dong-won and Rose both belonged to YG Entertainment, Kang Dong-won has been serving solo since the expiration of his exclusive contract last year. However, it appears that he has been interacting with the company for quite some time.
Aside from the age difference between the two, Kang Dong-won's past remarks are also drawing attention. During the Talk Live session of the 2016 movie "Covered Time," when a fan asked him to say, "Please say that a 17-year-old age difference is okay," Dan Jung-ha said, "No," drawing laughter from the audience.
As Kang Dong-won and Rose are 16 years apart, fans are continuing to show playful reactions as to whether they will be 16 years old instead of 17.
YG "It is difficult to confirm as it pertains to the private lives of our artists."
On the 17th, YG Entertainment, the agency of Rose, responded to the rumors of a romantic relationship by saying, "It is difficult to confirm as it pertains to the private lives of our artists."
Similarly, an official from Kang Dong-won's agency stated on the 17th, "It is true that Kang Dong-won visited a place where he has a close friend, but we cannot confirm anything else as it pertains to his private life."
Previously, YG Entertainment has taken an "unconfirmed" stance on most romantic rumors involving their artists, but have quickly declared such rumors as "groundless" if they are untrue. As a result, fans consider YG's "unconfirmed" position as a de facto recognition of the rumor.
