Since many stars have previously revealed their dating and marriage lives on Video Star, the teaser gained significant attention from netizens.
But following News1‘s confirmation, it has been clarified that Gongchan was not actually talking about a lover, but rather his fans in the viral confession.
On the show, Gongchan shared,
I’ve been in a relationship with BANA (B1A4 fandom) for around 9 years now.
Although this is not the first time a celebrity’s statement was exaggerated by the media, netizens are expressing their disappointment in Video Star, especially due to their history of being honest and true while delivering stories of Korean celebrities.
