On Thursday, Nov. 5, 2020, rumors of TWICE member Chaeyoung dating a tattoo artist started making its rounds online after Korean netizens shared alleged proof of the two's relationship. Read more about it here.
The rumors started after a photo of two people at a shopping mart went viral. Korean netizens are claiming that the girl in the picture is Chaeyoung due to her hat. Previously, Chaeyoung was seen showing that same hat while promoting on MBC's 'Radio Star.'
During the Oct. 28 episode of 'Radio Star,' Chaeyoung brought out a fluffy white hat that she claimed was her favorite. She had even let the MC of the show try it on, so viewers have a good view of what the hat looks like. Because of this, netizens are positive that the girl in the photo is the TWICE member.
One netizen had claimed that they had seen Chaeyoung and even pointed out that she had mint highlights. At the time, Chaeyoung did in fact mint highlights in her hair. The netizen expressed shock because despite being a celebrity, the couple was seen walking around out in the open. Another netizen claims to have seen them on Aug. 6, 2020.
Korean netizens do not have a problem with her dating. After all, TWICE members Jihyo and Momo are both currently confirmed to be in a relationship. Instead, the problem lies with who she is dating.
Korean netizens are calling out the tattoo artist for sharing an obscene drawing to his Instagram account. People are also saying that the tattoo artist has cursed and threatened netizens who have sent him direct messages. Many called him out for his harmful activities as if he is forgetting that he is rumored to be in a relationship with an idol.
It is also being said that the tattoo artist is threatening to released footage of Chaeyoung while she is drunk and that it will be leaked if fans and netizens continue to bother him. Such footage could greatly impact Chaeyoung's career for the worse and could defame her reputation.
With all of the negative actions coming to light, Korean netizens are now wondering why Chaeyoung would even date such a man, especially as an idol. Many are questioning her choices if their relationship is real and claim she could do so much batter.
