On May 19, news started circulating that a witness saw Song Jae Rim and T-ara’s Jiyeon on a date together in the countryside. The report apparently came from someone who spotted them at a gas station while they were refueling their car. The witness said that they looked very close, but they kept looking around to see if people recognized them.
At first, when contacted, both their agencies refused to speak on the rumors because the question was related to the artists’ personal life. They said that they would let the media know once they have spoken to Song Jae Rim and Jiyeon respectively.
However, after verifying the information, both agencies issued statements denying that Song Jae Rim and Jiyeon are dating. They confirmed that the stars are very close because they share similar hobbies but are not in a relationship.
Jiyeon’s company confirmed that they went on the trip to the countryside together. She recently bought a bike and Song Jae Rim was helping her learn how to ride it. They rented a circuit and since the bikes were shipped to the location, they rode in the same car to the trail. This was simply a friendly outing.
Jiyeon and Song Jae Rim first drew the public’s attention to them as a possible couple when they both starred in last year’s drama “I Wanna Hear Your Song“. Their chemistry was so electric that they quickly became a fan favorite.
Let me know what you think of those rumors in the comments!
