BLACKPINK’s Jisoo and See You In My 19th Life actor Ahn Bo-Hyun have officially announced that they are an item.
The news was confirmed earlier today, shortly after Dispatch broke the story with a video and photographs of them traveling together to Jisoo’s home in Yongsan.
The couple were seen together one day after Jisoo had returned to Korea after finishing a concert tour in Hanoi, Vietnam with her group BLACKPINK.
Soon after the news was made public, Jisoo herself released a statement in which she confirmed their relationship, saying: “I am still in the beginning [of the relationship], so I am a little cautious.” She added: “We are in the process of getting to know each other better, little by little.”
Jisoo’s agency YG Entertainment and Ahn Bo-Hyun’s agency FN Entertainment soon released their own statements on the relationship, writing: “Jisoo and Ahn Bo-Hyun are getting to know each other with positive feelings. We would appreciate it if you watched over them warmly.”
Fans have reacted excitedly to the news, which came as an unexpected surprise. It appears that the two stars have been able to keep their relationship a secret for some time, even from their industry peers.
D.P. star Jung Hae-In, who starred with Jisoo in the 2021 K-drama Snowdrop and who is a close friend of Ahn Bo-Hyun, was asked to comment on their relationship, and appeared to be just as clueless as everyone else.
He told Korean news outlets: “I had no idea the two of them were dating. I might be a celebrity myself, but I don’t concern myself with other people’s dating news.”
He added: “I hope that they continue to have a healthy and beautiful relationship.”
We would also like to wish Jisoo and Ahn Bo-Hyun all the best in their dating adventure, and look forward to what the future will bring!
