After Go Minsi, K-pop idol Soyou gets candid about her dating life: 'I'm 32!'
The former Sistar member shared that she has dated in the past and her romantic 2013 song ‘Stupid In Love’ was about her ex
The dating situation for Korean celebrities is quite different from the West. And while K-drama fans are less toxic as evident by the support actors Son Ye-jin and Hyun-bin got for their wedding, it is worse for K-pop idols. The fan service where idols pretend to be in a relationship with fans makes many delusional. On top of that, with K-pop fans investing millions, they think they have a say in the idol’s personal life. But more and more celebrities are drawing the line as seen in the case of actor Go Min-si and K-pop idol Soyou.
Just hours before Soyou’s revelation, Go Min-si was trending for allegedly being in a relationship with K-pop rapper Gray. Since the rapper was previously rumored to be dating Tiffany from the girl group Girls’ Generation, her fans had a negative reaction to him being linked up with Go Min-si. However, the ‘Sweet Home’ actress deftly handed it as her label shared that they would not say or confirm anything about Minsi and Gray’s dating rumor since it was her “personal life.” Similarly, Soyou decided to get blunt with fans as she addressed her dating life.

Soyou talks about her dating life
K-pop idol Soyou first debuted in the iconic second-gen girl group Sistar. She is now starting afresh as a soloist under her new label BPM and recently came back with her third solo mini-album titled ‘Day & Night’. While promoting her new album, she spoke about her Sistar days and how the girls decided to go from being rookies of a small company to one of the biggest girl groups of the 2010s through sheer will and passion. Coincidentally, former member Hyolyn shared the same thought on ‘Queendom 2’ at the same time while reminiscing about Sistar.
Soyou also touched upon her past relationships. While playing a game where she had to pick her favorite collaborative tracks, she gave the backstory for the romantic 2013 song ‘Stupid In Love’. The idol said, “There were many times that I teared up while singing that song.” Soyou ended up laughing and then decided to get honest, “I’m already 32 so I can talk about my past relationships. Back then, I had just broken up with my ex. So that song really reminded me of him. 'I’m not saying we should break up/That’s not what I mean’. I cried during recording [the song]…I’m a human being so of course, I was in a relationship. I’m not right now though!”
