Speaking on the rumors, SM Entertainment revealed to Newsen that the rumors about dating were not true. "They only have a close sunbae and hoobae friendship since having worked together on Ravi’s song and that the dating rumors are not true,” as reported by KoreaBoo.  

Considering all the news going around the two, Ravi’s label GROOVL1N also decided to come forward and put the rumors to rest. According to the website AllKpop, they have confirmed that Ravi and Taeyeon are indeed dating. The label said, “It's true that they're dating.
