'Sports Seoul' was the first to break the exclusive with photos that seem to show the two on a sweet date.
It's said the two have been friends for 8 years, but only recently progressed into being a couple. It seems like the turning point in their relationship came about when the two portrayed lovers in Ga In's 19+ rated music video for "Fxxk U"! (You can see the MV here if you missed it during the release)
Insiders say after the two showed their teamwork with their portrayal of a passionate couple, the two started to naturally date in real life as well!
As soon as the report came out, the agencies of both confirmed that Ga In and Joo Ji Hoon are indeed in the early stages of their relationship.
The singer's rep from A Pop Entertainment told several media outlets, "The two were friends before and with the music video, they became much closer and started dating... They are a great source of strength for one another and give each other good advice." Another rep told TVReport, "It's been about a month or two since they started to really date... They didn't start dating right away during the filming of the music video. We are a bit cautious to confirm their relationship during a time of mourning [for the Sewol tragedy]."
The actor's agency Key East Entertainment also said, "It's true that they are dating. They have known each other for a long time, and progressed into being a couple with Ga In's music video. They officially started their relationship about a month ago."
Congratulations to the couple!!
