A petrifying discovery. Korean netizens believe RIIZE’s Park Wonbin looks like Korean game character Sue’s boyfriend, and Hyein is a human version of Sue, so perhaps Koreans have discovered the two to be dating? This is the first relationship between a 5th generation idol and a 6th generation idol, right?

The post, calling the discovery “petrifying,” alleged that RIIZE’s Wonbin and NewJeans’ Hyein are dating, solely based on their resemblances to game characters…

While the post’s argument is completely absurd, it did gather tens of thousands of likes and circulated to various social media platforms outside of Weibo. Thousands of netizens have also given their two cents on the matter, though most of them pointed out how nonsensical the whole idea is.
