In a surprising turn of events, the entertainment industry and fans worldwide are abuzz with the news of BLACKPINK’s Jisoo and actor Ahn Bo Hyun’s romantic relationship. The news, which has been confirmed by both their respective agencies, has taken the K-pop world by storm.
Jisoo, the lead vocalist of the globally renowned K-pop group BLACKPINK, and Ahn Bo Hyun, known for his roles in popular Korean dramas like “Itaewon Class” and “Yumi’s Cells,” have been the center of attention since the news broke. Dispatch, a South Korean media outlet, was the first to report on their relationship, sharing photographs of the couple’s rendezvous at Jisoo’s residence.
Both YG Entertainment, representing Jisoo, and FN Entertainment, representing Ahn Bo Hyun, have confirmed the relationship. In their statements, they mentioned that the two stars are “getting to know each other with positive feelings” and appealed to the public for their support and understanding.
The confirmation of their relationship is a significant departure from the norm in the South Korean entertainment industry, where celebrities’ personal lives, especially romantic relationships, are often kept under wraps. Historically, agencies have been known to impose restrictions on their talents, sometimes even banning them from dating. However, this announcement signifies a potential shift in the industry’s approach to stars’ personal lives.
Jisoo’s relationship with Ahn Bo Hyun is particularly notable given BLACKPINK’s immense global popularity. Since their debut in 2016, BLACKPINK has achieved numerous milestones, including headlining major music festivals like Coachella. Despite their global stardom, Jisoo is the first member of BLACKPINK to publicly acknowledge a romantic relationship.
Ahn Bo Hyun, who began his career as a model in 2007 and transitioned to acting in 2014, has garnered acclaim for his roles in various dramas. His dedication to his craft is evident in his performances, earning him a spot in the hearts of many fans.
The news of their relationship has been met with an outpouring of support from fans worldwide. Social media platforms are flooded with congratulatory messages, with many expressing their happiness for the couple.
