Blackpink might have sung about being “Hard to Love,” but Ahn Bo Hyun doesn’t think so! The South Korean actor was spotted at an airport with Blackpink’s lead vocalist Jisoo (and yes, he was holding her bags — I’m in love with him already). The pair kept it lowkey in dark outfits, face masks, sunglasses, and a hat, but no amount of celebrity disguise tactics could keep Blackpink stans from recognizing when their fave has a new fave by her side.
A picture says a thousand words about their rumored relationship, but it helps that their talent agencies officially confirmed they’re a couple on Aug. 2. Blackpink’s agency YG Entertainment told South Korean news agency Yonhap that the couple is “currently in the phase of acquainting themselves with each other. We would appreciate it if you extend warm support and understanding.” Traveling together definitely steps out of acquaintance territory, IMO!
It’s a historic moment in Blackpink history: This is the first time that YG Entertainment has ever officially commented on dating rumors surrounding any Blackpink member. Jisoo has said in the past that she’s never had a boyfriend (at least not publicly), so the fact that she stepped out with Ahn is a huge deal for her fans. Getting her family’s approval is a piece of cake compared to getting Blinks on his side. Luckily for Ahn, that shouldn’t be a problem. Here’s everything you need to know about Jisoo’s new boyfriend.
Ahn Bo Hyun is already pretty famous.
Ahn has acted in over 20 projects since beginning his career in 2014. He’s most famous for appearing in several popular K-dramas, including his breakout role as the villain in Itaewon Class. When he’s not on set, Ahn is vlogging his vacations, sharing workout tips, and giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at his latest projects. His YouTube channel, Bravo Hyun, currently has 250K subscribers.
The couple has reportedly been dating since May.
The pair have managed to keep their relationship under wraps until now, so not much is known about when or how they met. Koreaboo reports that Ahn has been spotted in Jisoo’s hometown all summer, driving himself to her apartment with take-out in tow. Comfy dates are honestly the vibe between shows of Blackpink’s Born Pink world tour.
Their fans couldn’t be happier.
Both Jisoo and Ahn’s fans took to Twitter to share their love (and fancams) for Korea’s hottest new couple.
Some did a deep dive into any clues that suggest the pair have been dating for a while.
Others are just happy their faves are getting international exposure.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
