‘See You in My 19th Life’ Actor Ahn Bo Hyun and Blackpink Jisoo are now confirmed to be in a relationship by both of their respective companies, FN Entertainment and YG Entertainment on August 3, KST
Jisoo, aged 28, holds the position of the eldest member in the Global KPOP Girlgroup Blackpink. Despite constant rumors about their love lives, she is the only one among them confirmed to be in a relationship.
Ahn, aged 35, marked his acting debut with FN Entertainment in 2014 and has gained recognition for his remarkable roles in Korean dramas like “See You in my 19th life,” “Itaewon Class,” “Yumi’s Cells,” and “Descendants of the Sun.”
“They are getting to know each other little by little with good feelings. (…) the two are continuing their mature encounters while being considerate of the other. – Claimed by YG Entertainment in a press release regarding Ahn Bo Hyun and Jisoo.
On a report by Dispatch, the actor has been seen frequently visiting Jisoo’s house whenever the Idol’s back in Korea.
Fans are positively looking at this report as this marks a notable moment for BLACKPINK, as it’s the first time YG Entertainment officially acknowledges and confirms a dating rumor involving any globally acclaimed girl group member.
It has been a rarity for agencies to publicly announce the romantic relationships of K-pop idols. However, the industry is gradually shifting away from controversial contract terms that restrict performers from dating other celebrities.
Blackpink, comprising Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé, debuted in 2016 and rapidly rose to global stardom. In 2019, they made history as the first Asian act to headline the renowned California-based festival, Coachella. Additionally, they were named Time magazine’s Entertainer of the Year in the previous year, becoming only the second K-pop group to receive such an honor.
Currently, the group is captivating audiences on its second “Born Pink” world tour, showcasing their incredible talent and mesmerizing performances to fans worldwide.
