Shippers of FT Island’s Choi Jonghun and rhythmic gymnast Son Yeon Jae rejoice. FNC Entertainment, Jonghun’s agency has confirmed that the pair are indeed dating.
It can be recalled in a report by Soompi that Choi Jonghun and Son Yeon Jae have been spotted out and about by Dispatch, who reported that FT Island singer and the gymnast have been dating for about three months now. As soon as the report came out, FNC Entertainment immediately went ahead and verified the dating rumors with their artist. Choi Jonghun was really cool about it and admitted that he was seeing Son Yeon Jae.
According to the Dispatch report, Choi Jonghun and Son Yeon Jae have been spotted on several occasions looking quite comfortable with each other. In one of the photos, Choi Jonghun cutely holds Son Yeon Jae’s handbag for her as they prepare to enter a car. In some photos, the two were spotted on a stroll and both were carrying shopping bags, with Son Yeon Jae a few steps ahead of her boyfriend. In another photo, the gymnast is seen with her arm around the singer.
Fans were generally very supportive upon confirming dating rumors. Many praised Choi Jonghun for being up front about dating Son Yeon Jae and said that they matched each other very well. Some fans were happy that they were owning up to something that was very normal and expressed well wishes for the couple.
This was not the first time that Dispatch reported rumors about celebrities dating which were eventually confirmed by their labels like what happened to Choi Jonghun and Son Yeon Jae. It can be recalled that the publication also released photos of ‘Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo’ co-stars Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung as they dated low key well after filming for the romantic comedy had ended. YG Entertainment later confirmed the dating rumors and said that the #NamLee or #BokJoon couple started to develop feelings on set but have been friends for a long time already during their modeling days.
It took a while but “Scarlet Heart: Ryeo” star Lee Joon Gi and Jeon Hye Bin finally admitted to their two year romance last April after numerous paparazzi shots of the two actors stepping out surfaced online. It remains to be seen which celebrity will start dating next.
