Code Kunst recently garnered attention in an episode of MBC‘s I Live Alone, where he and Park Na Rae went on a one-day “date.” He took her out on a dream date where he treated her like a princess and made her cry tears of joy as he sang for her, showing his gentlemanly side.

In the episode, many noticed that he was wearing a ring on his left fourth finger, where couple rings or wedding rings are usually worn. Because of this, people speculated he was in a relationship—and it was true. On May 4, it was reported that Code Kunst had been dating a beautiful non-celebrity for five years. Based on their shared interests in fashion and music, the two are happily in a relationship despite their busy schedules.

After the news broke out, a media outlet reported that date concepts in TV programs are usually a plan to have viewers overindulge and stir up emotions of real love.

Usually, dating concept shooting is a plan to stimulate viewers’ overindulgion and emotions of realistic love. Therefore, it has been pointed out that whenever it is known that participants of dating shows are in relationships, the program loses its sincerity.


The report continued to share that this applies to Code Kunst as well.

Code Kunst is no exception. If he had a girlfriend, he should not have filmed a dating concept on the show. This lacks etiquette to Park Na Rae who was touched by their hanbok date and his improvised singing, and to the viewers who were excited and expressed their love for Code Kunst. If there was no other choice but to film the episode, he could have at least taken off his ring.

When this news report was posted on an online community, netizens raged about how they did not understand why anyone would ever think this way. They expressed that I Live Alone was not a dating show like We Got Married, a popular dating show where celebrities were set up in pairs to be in a pretend “marriage.” Some joked that the reporter must secretly be in love with Code Kunst.
