The photos showed the alleged idol and actress wearing matching blue outfits. The two were also photographed holding hands, sparking dating rumors.
YG Entertainment has since released a statement, in true YG fashion, stating they weren’t privy to their artists’ private lives.
It is difficult to confirm the personal matters of our artists.

Many fans, however, are convinced the two are indeed dating. Many fans are asking whether the idol and actress were dating when they shot the idol’s music video for “Born To Love You.”
And fans didn’t wait to send their flowers to the couple. The actress’s Instagram posts were decorated with hearts and congratulations from fans.
It seems many of the group’s Inner Circle approves of the relationship, which must be a relief for the couple.
Kang Seungyoon made his television debut through the audition program Superstar K. The idol would go on to act in the beloved sitcom Highkick before making his idol debut with WINNER in August 2014.
Moon Ji Hyo also made her debut through an audition program, participating in Mnet‘s High School Rapper. The actress made an appearance in the independent film Time of Memory.
