Who is Blackpink's Jisoo dating? Here's the truth behind the K-pop queen's romantic life
BLACKPINK have finally released their debut studio album titled 'The Album'. It features guest appearances from Cardi B, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Victoria Monét. Even though the popular girl band has millions of followers, there's a reason we don't know much about their dating lives, which has long been a subject of much curiosity. The lack of information around BLACKPINK and many other bands' dating history is because of YG Entertainment’s strict "dating ban", which forbids some YG Entertainment artists such as BLACKPINK from having romantic relationships while in the band.
The girl band made this revelation in an interview on JYP’s Party People in 2017. They also revealed that they cannot smoke, drink, go to clubs or get tattoos or plastic surgery done. In a 2016 interview, Jisoo explained how strict YG Entertainment and Yang Hyun-Suk were about dating. She said, "The first time I met Yang-Hyun Suk, he asked me, ‘Do you happen to have a boyfriend right now?’ At the time, I was wearing a ring, and he even asked what that ring was."
"I didn’t have a boyfriend, and It was just a ring," she added. Jisoo even explained that YG schedules its trainees to eat at different times so male and female trainees don’t spend too much time together. "Even the eating times of trainees are different. At YG’s cafeteria, if the boys eat at 6 o’clock, the girls will eat at 7 o’clock," she said in the 2017 episode of Radio Star. As for her own romantic life, Jisoo has said that she’s never had a boyfriend or been in a relationship before, which is why there is never any news about her dating anyone.
Even though 25-year-old Jisoo is not dating anyone, she surely has a crush, according to Koreaboo. The report stated that when Jisoo was asked whom she wants to date, she smiled and named two actors — Kim Jong Kook and Lee Kwang Soo.
