I wish it wasn't,tho. Ina Korean national news channel actually reported about the details of this rumor, confirming that the people who initially made up and spread the rumor have been penalized. The netizens were surprised that Lee Ji Ah had kept a secret for so long and began questioning if she was able to land such accredited roles only because of her contact with Seo Taiji. If that's the case, then the better question might be: The two unexpectedly faced a tremendous amount of criticism because of the way fans felt about their Instagram posts that have apparently been for each other. Ever since IU and Jang Kiha broke up inshe has been involved in several other dating scandals. Its kinda unfair for them to be judged like this when all we know about them are translated comments from sites like NB, KPKF, etc who purposely choose the negative ones for site views.
What was more shocking though was the year age gap.
Why in Korea, Dating is scandal?
