Lee Min-ho’s agency MYM Entertainment denied reports claiming that the actor is dating former MOMOLAND member Yeonwoo.
“It is not true that they are in a relationship. They are just acquaintances,” the agency said on Monday, August 30, according to Soompi.
Relationship rumors between Minho and Yeonwoo circulated on social media Monday morning after Dispatch said the two stars had been dating for five months. According to Koreaboo, Dispatch also said that the two shared similar hobbies such as gaming and watching movies, and even spent Yeonwoo’s birthday together.
Dispatch also uploaded separate pictures of the two, claiming that they were on a date.
In their statement, MYM Entertainment explained the photos uploaded by Dispatch. “It wasn’t just the two of them, and there were other friends present at the time. They are not photos of a date,” the agency was quoted as saying in the Soompi article.
Yeonwoo’s agency, MLD Entertainment, has yet to issue a statement.
Yeonwoo, whose real name is Lee Da-bin, 25, debuted as a member of K-pop group MOMOLAND in 2016. In November 2019, she announced her departure from the group to focus on her activities as an actress.
