BLACKPINK Jisoo and Ahn Bo Hyun Confirmed Dating: 'We are in the Stage of Getting to Know Each Other'
In May, she traveled to Macau. Four days later, she was off to Bangkok again. June found her in Sydney, and by July, she'd visited both London and Paris. The last destination for July was Hanoi, Vietnam.
BLACKPINK's Jisoo (28) is one of the busiest idols in Korea. She is currently on a world tour, visiting 33 cities across 22 countries, with 1.4 million fans met so far.
In May, she headed to Yongsan. She was there again in June, and July. The first day of August also saw her in Yongsan. To be precise, she was in her home at a Yongsan apartment complex.
A rising star actor in Korea, Ahn Bo Hyun (35), who recently starred in "Please Look After Me This Life Too" and "Busan Country Boy in Sydney," also frequented Yongsan throughout July despite his hectic schedule.
Jisoo and Ahn Bo Hyun have fallen in love. The present of K-pop and the future of K-drama have sparked a romance. Jisoo found a confidante in Ahn Bo Hyun, and he, in turn, has taken care of her in a most devoted manner.
Jisoo describes herself as a "homebody." Meaning she is perfectly content staying at home alone. Once her international schedules are over and she returns home, she spends most of her time indoors.
Her date location of choice? Home. They met at the Yongsan apartment complex where Jisoo lives. Ahn Bo Hyun drove himself to her residence.
Spotting their dates wasn't difficult. The day after she returned from an international tour, they spent quiet time together in Yongsan.
An insider told 'Dispatch,' "Jisoo is a member of a world-famous girl group. It attracts a lot of attention," and added, "That limits where they can go on dates."
Ahn Bo Hyun's July was incredibly busy. He concurrently premiered the drama 'Please Look After Me This Life Too' and the variety show 'Busan Country Boy in Sydney.' Yet, he never missed his trips to Yongsan.
He visited Yongsan casually dressed, keeping his face hidden under a hat, sunglasses, and a mask. He also showed affection by packing food from popular restaurants.
Ahn Bo Hyun's considerate gestures were particularly noticeable. The insider mentioned, "Jisoo wasn't in Korea often," and added, "Ahn Bo Hyun adjusted his schedule to match hers."
Jisoo stands at 162 cm while Ahn Bo Hyun is 187 cm. The height difference is 25 cm. Jisoo is 28 years old and Ahn Bo Hyun is 35. The age difference is 7 years.
However, their rapport is more significant than their differences. Jisoo has a keen interest in acting and has already debuted in 'Snowdrop.' Ahn Bo Hyun directly participated in creating the soundtrack for his recent drama.
Their mutual friend said, "They share a lot in common, from acting to singing and even fashion. They respect each other and are fostering a mature relationship."
When asked by 'Dispatch' if Jisoo and Ahn Bo Hyun had become meaningful 'flowers' for each other, the couple requested a moment to respond.
First, Jisoo answered. She was cautious with her choice of words, her responsibility as a member of a globally recognized girl group apparent.
Jisoo stated, "We are at the beginning stage, so it's somewhat cautious," but acknowledged, "I have good feelings for him. We are in the process of getting to know each other little by little."
