And even off-screen, the two have continually shown their support for one another, leading many fans to believe there might be more between them.

However, Sejeong recently held a Weverse Live broadcast, where she shut down the rumors, refuting the specuation that she went to Japan with Hyo Seop.

Instead, she named her best friend and older brother as the people she went on the trip with.

Hold up hold up – to be accurate, I went with my friend, my best friend, and my older brother. Beep beep.

Many fans took to Twitter to support how Sejeong addressed the situation directly.

While others pointed out that she shouldn’t have had to clarify her private life in the first place, taking this as a reminder that shippers should respect boundaries.

Especially since Sejeong had to address the rumors during a live broadcast when she has many other exciting things to talk to fans about, like the upcoming second season of Uncanny Counter.
