Jisoo and Son Heung-min Dating Rumors and Its History
The dating rumors between Blackpink's Jisoo and soccer player Son Heung-min first started in September 2019, when the actress watched one of the soccer players' games in England. Some netizens immediately speculated that she and the soccer star were in a relationship.
Talking about them wearing similar bracelets, many believe they share "couple bracelets," an accessory that couples in Korea commonly wear to show that they are together.
And if you follow Heung-min, his bracelet is renowned amongst soccer and Korean fans, as he has a habit of kissing his bracelet every time he scores a goal.
The Rumored Couple’s Dating History
Apart from Heung-min, Jisoo has not been linked to any other men since she debuted as a member of the girl group Blackpink in August 2016.
Her dating life is also private because her agency YG Entertainment strictly implements a "dating ban," and stops their clients from smoking, drinking, visiting clubs, and getting tattoos.
"The first time I met Yang-Hyun Suk, he asked me, 'Do you happen to have a boyfriend right now?' At the time, I was wearing a ring, and he even asked what that ring was," Jisoo said about YG's strict nature on dating in 2016. "I didn't have a boyfriend, and it was just a ring."
On the other hand, Heung-min was dating his former After School member Yoo So Young in 2015. But they reportedly are not dating each other at present.
