Amidst the dating rumors involving (G)I-DLE‘s Soyeon and “Single’s Inferno” star Moon Se Hoon, Moon Se Hoon‘s side has publicly stated, “It’s baseless gossip.”
On the afternoon of August 21st, a representative from Moon Se Hoon‘s agency, Chorokbaem Media, stated to OSEN, “There is absolutely no truth to the dating rumors,” and denied it by saying, “If they were really dating, would they openly go to a department store like that, just the two of them?“
Continuing, they added, “Mr. Moon Se Hoon has a naturally cheerful and lively personality, so he has many close friends around him. He recently had plans to go shopping for clothes, and it seemed like they coincidentally went together,” and clarified, “Not only with Ms. Soyeon but also with other close celebrity friends.“
Previously, various online communities posted articles with the title “Soyeon and Moon Se Hoon’s Department Store Date Photos.” The author added the explanation, “June 27, 2023, (G)I-DLE’s Soyeon and ‘Single’s Inferno’ Moon Se Hoon.“
The photos in question showed (G)I-DLE‘s Soyeon and Moon Se Hoon at a department store located in Apgujeong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, purchasing clothing.
The two of them appeared unconcerned about the surrounding gazes, and Moon Se Hoon even made a surprised expression when someone took a photo.
With the spread of the two-shot photos of Soyeon and Moon Se Hoon on the internet, suspicions of a romantic relationship arose, but the agency swiftly denied the rumors, stating they were “baseless gossip,” and the situation was concluded as happening.
Meanwhile, Moon Se Hoon, a former contestant on the Netflix reality show “Single’s Inferno” Season 1 that aired in 2021, is a chef who operates a Western-style restaurant.
This year, he officially debuted in the entertainment industry under Chorokbaem Media and is currently hosting as an MC on K-STAR and LG Hello Vision’s cooking variety show “Next-door Sister Cooking Seasonally.”
Apart from this, he is in discussions for appearances in various entertainment and broadcasting projects.
