The Korean news agency followed Seung Gi and YoonA for three months since October and reported that their date doesn’t go past 1 a.m.

Seung Gi and YoonA’s talent agencies did not hesitate to confirm that the two K-pop stars have been seeing each other.

According to News.Nate.Com, Seung Gi’s representatives confirmed that the two have been dating, but did not disclose any information about their relationship and instead asked fans to support the couple’s budding romance.

Allkpop.com reported that YoonA’s agency, SM Entertainment, also gave its comment to Osen News, as translated in English: “The two are in the beginning stages of getting to know each other.”

Seung Gi has also stated in the Korean talk show Strong Heart that YoonA is his ideal type.

While most idol group members have a “dating ban” included in their contracts, it’s safe to assume that members of Girls’ Generation are now allowed to go on dates.

Filipinos are familiar with Seung Gi because two of his dramas were aired on Philippine TVShining Inheritance on GMA Network and My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho on ABS-CBN.

YoonA is currently doing a drama series titled Prime Minister and I.

Meanwhile, Girls’ Generation is currently preparing for their 2014 comeback in the Korean music scene.

During their Marchen Fantasy concert for the SM TOWN WEEK Winter Music Festival, held last December 22, lucky fans were able to watch the girl group’s music video teaser for their comeback.


According to reports, Girls’ Generation will return in the Korean music scene by mid-January.

Girls’ Generation is known for their chart-topping hits "I Got A Boy," "The Boys," "Gee," and "Tell Me You Wish (Genie)."
