Korean netizens are abuzz with news that Karina and Lee Jae Wook have embarked on a romantic journey together, having recently begun dating following their initial encounter back in January of this year.

On February 27, Lee Jae Wook's management agency, C-JeS Studio, officially acknowledged the dating rumors surrounding the actor and aespa's Karina. 

The agency stated, "The two are currently in the process of getting to know each other. As this concerns the actor's personal life, we kindly request that you regard it with warmth and respect while he continues his filming commitments."

Following the news, many Korean netizens gathered in a popular online community to discuss the latest dating news. Many netizens pointed out that Karina and Lee Jae Wook were seen at the Prada event on January 15, 2024, and began dating shortly after.

On January 30, Karina held an Inter-Asia fan sign event where she was seen wearing a light purple hoodie, which she was seen wearing in a Dispatch photo taken of her on her date with Lee Jae Wook.

From these photographs, Korean netizens deduced that the two began dating just two weeks after their first encounter.

Many Korean netizens speculate that they might have fallen for each other at first sight and have been commenting, "They must've fallen mad for each other," "They began dating right away... Isn't there like a few weeks of getting to know each other?" "There are cases people start dating within an hour of meeting so I don't think it matters that they started dating so fast," "There are so many people who begin dating within a week of meeting," "I think it's a normal pace for people in their 20s," and "It must have been love at first sight."

well, they are surrounded by pretty and beautiful people 24/7 as a job, so there's got to be more than just their looks or "love-at-first-sight" involved. good luck to them though... luckily he's an actor and she's a female idols, if the genders were reversed this could had went bad.
