Both agencies of (G)I-DLE’s Jeon Soyeon and Single Inferno’s Moon Se Hoon denied the rumored relationship between the two. 

Recently, the two stars were speculated to be dating when a photo of them purchasing clothes together circulated at an online community. 

In response to the rumors, agency Chorokbaem ENM clarified that Moon Se Hoon has a lot of celebrity friends. And that the two might have met each other at the department store by coincidence. 

For those unfamiliar with Moon Se Hoon, he was one of the contestants in the first season of the dating reality show Single’s Inferno. In April, he signed with Chorokbaem ENM to pursue an acting career. 


Meanwhile, Cube Entertainment shared that the two just have a close relationship. “They only went shopping together, and they are certainly not dating,” according to a Soompi report. As for Jeon Soyeon, she made her debut as the leader of (G)I-DLE in 2017. 

Additionally, Jeon Soyeon is the latest K-pop idol to be embroiled in dating controversies. MOMOLAND’s Jane denied that she was ever in a relationship with SEVENTEEN’s Joshua. Meanwhile, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo confirmed that she’s dating actor Ahn Bo Hyun. 

As of writing, other dating rumors that remain to be unverified include BLACKPINK’s Lisa with Frédéric Arnault, BLACKPINK’s Jennie and BTS’ V. 

What’s in store for (G)I-DLE?

Away from these dating rumors, (G)I-DLE has been primarily focused on their music activities. They released their sixth mini-album I FEEL in May, which carried the hit track “Queencard.” 

Currently, the group is preparing to release their first all-English EP HEAT on October 5. It was initially supposed to be available by September 8, but 88rising announced that there will be delays as they have yet to put final touches for the best quality. 

Additionally, HEAT is Cube Entertainment’s first all-English EP in their 17-year history. (G)I-DLE’s collaboration with 88rising has also given birth to the music video of their pre-release track I DO.”
