Cube Entertainment clarifies rumor about BTOB's Sungjae dating an influencer
Looks like Cube Entertainment has diffused a new bomb before it could blow up. BTOB’s Sungjae was suddenly embroiled in a dating rumor as of April 18 when various online communities posted about the Cube Entertainment singer being in a relationship with a commoner. It was revealed that Sungjae was seeing an Instagram influencer and TikTok star anonymously called ‘S’ and that the two had bonded over their love for golf.
The rumors also suggested that S was initially only an acquaintance of BTOB’s Peniel and it was he who introduced Sungjae to the influencer. Eagle-eyed fans went to the extent of scrutinizing every post made by S and it was also pointed out that in one of her Instagram stories, S posted a video while playing golf and the male voice heard in the background was none other than Sungjae’s. It was also pointed out that Sungjae and S both used matching phone cases like many couples did which fuelled more fire to the rumors.
Cube clarifies BTOB Sungjae’s dating rumor
It seems like Cube Entertainment is now trying to promptly diffuse the situation on Sungjae’s behalf as they clarified the rumor stating that Sungjae was only an acquaintance of the Instagram influencer. On April 20, Cube Entertainment put an end to the dating rumor involving BTOB’s Sungjae. An official from Cube told a Korean news agency that the rumor about Sungjae dating a commoner is not true. It was also stated that Sungjae and S were just two people who played golf together and were casual acquaintances.
Influencer S turns her Instagram account private
It was also reported that the influencer S who had a public account on Instagram turned her handle private after fans started messaging her asking if she was seeing Sungjae but no reports of hate comments from Melodys (BTOB fans) were revealed. Fans of BTOB deserve credit because as soon as the rumor was circulated, Melody’s had the warmest reaction to the dating rumor as they practically showered Sungjae with blessings for finally finding a partner.
Fans were already sure that if the rumors were untrue, Sungjae and Cube Entertainment would promptly clarify the claims. In either case, fans promised their support to the BTOB maknae and started making memes about the rumor instead of being hateful towards the two individuals involved.
