Is Red Velvet’s Seugli Single?
ICYMI, it’s almost unheard of for K-pop stars to date publicly, as intense backlash usually follows. On top of that, some K-pop music companies even have dating “bans” to prohibit their artists from romantic relationships. This has led many fans to “ship” certain idols with one another — without any proof except for a few sidelong glances at Korean music shows.
Crush’s label P NATION and Joy’s label SM Entertainment both confirmed the news, commenting, “They had a senior-junior relationship, but they recently began dating with good feelings toward each other.”
The announcement came one year after Joy and Crush collaborated on a song called “May Day” in May 2020 and also appeared in the music video together.
“Our fans, you must have been very surprised. This is the first time I’m conveying such news so I’m very nervous and [tense],” Crush wrote in a letter to fans after the dating news hit, as translated by Koreaboo. “The number of days where I am smiling has increased due to the positivity and brightness of that person [referring to Joy] and my heart has also become healthier.”
