A British model, Ash Stymest, and his wrist tattoo of CL's name is gaining a lot of attention among Korean netizens.
Several viral posts about the model and CL's relationship are being shared on social media and online communities in Korea recently. In the photos, Ash Stymest can be seen with a tattoo on his wrist that says 'Lee Chae Rin' (CL's Korean name) in hangul.
Ash Stymest was in 2NE1's 2014 MV "GOTTA BE YOU" and is known to have maintained an ongoing friendship with CL, but many speculate that they had been more than friends.
Some netizens are saying, "Maybe he is a big fan and that's why he has that tattoo," but many more guess that the two had dated in the past.
International fans, who were probably the first to notice the model and CL's development, are saying that this is old news, but it is certainly hitting Korea just now.
The British model is recently rumored to be dating Johnny Depp's daughter, Lily Rose Depp at this time. It is unknown if the model still has the tattoo.
