TWICE Chaeyoung's Dating Rumor with Tattoo Artist Chim Hwasa
Back in November 2020, the internet went into a frenzy after rumors of Chaeyoung dating a tattoo artist surfaced on online community forums, which quickly spread on other social media platforms.
The rumors began on November 5, 2020, after a photo of two people at a grocery store went viral. Upon seeing the photo, netizens believed that the girl in the photo was TWICE's Chaeyoung because of the hat she was wearing, and the tattoo artist Chim Hwasa - who is said to be in his 30s.
Back on October 28, TWICE made a guest appearance on MBC's "Radio Star," in which Chaeyoung had brought the same fluffy white hat on the show. This led netizens to believe that the girl in photo is indeed Chaeyoung, considering that her hair color and length at the time was also the same.

One netizen also claimed to have seen the couple previously on August 6, 2020.
Fortunately, netizens and fans didn't have an issue with Chaeyoung dating and were very supportive instead, as fellow TWICE members Momo and Jihyo were confirmed to be dating Super Junior's Heechul and Kang Daniel, respectively, at the time.
However, the dating rumors of Chaeyoung and Chim Hwasa were neither confirmed nor denied. Chaeyoung's label, JYP Entertainment, only stated that they do not have an official stance on their idol's dating rumors - leaving the rumors just floating and unanswered.
