Back in Nov. 2020, Chaeyoung was embroiled in dating rumors with a tattoo artist in his 30s. The rumors have since resurfaced after the TWICE member left a small hint about him in an Instagram post. Keep on reading to learn more.
In a recent "bubbly for JYPnation" update, Chaeyoung shared a few photos she had snapped with fans. Some of the pictures she shared with fans include a candid photo, a selfie, and a snapshot of her jewelry collection. It is the latter photo that caught people's attention.
The main point of her jewelry collection is a photo of Andy Warhol, but what snagged people's attention is what appears to be a beaded friendship bracelet with the initials "JSH" or "HSJ." People recognized the initials as Jung Seong Hyun, which is tattoo artist Chimhwasa's real name. Previously, the two were caught in dating rumors. People speculate that this is a sign the two are still happily dating.
Back on Nov. 5, 2020, photos of Chaeyoung with a man in a grocery store were shared on numerous online community forums. Despite how both of their back was turned in the photo, it is speculated to be Chaeyoung in the photo as the hat the girl is wearing is the same Chaeyoung featured on "Radio Star," where she said the hat was her favorite. The hair color the girl has was also the same as Chaeyoung's at the time - mint highlights with blonde hair. Another netizen claimed to have seen the two openly dating on Aug. 6, 2020.
While people had no problems with Chaeyoung dating, people were not happy with the person she was in a relationship with. After doing some digging, people found Chimhwasa's Instagram account and saw that he had shared numerous obscene drawings to his account. Fans also found pictures of a drawing of a girl with a mole on the left side of her face. Notably, Chaeyoung also has a mole on that side of her face.
Other people have stated that the tattoo artist has sent hateful and mean messages to people who sent him personal messages. Some have stated that Chimhwasa has videos of Chaeyoung drunk and that he has threatened to leak the video if they continue to bother him concerning the dating rumors.
Previously, the alleged couple was seen wearing matching rings, leading to speculations that they were actually couple rings. Chaeyoung's brother was also following Chimhwasa's account until the tattoo artist deactivated.
JYP Entertainment had released a statement concerning the matter when reports first came out, saying that they had no official stance concerning the dating rumors. They have not spoken up about the allegations since then.
