Seulgi, a prominent figure in the K-pop scene, stands out as the main dancer and lead singer of the widely acclaimed girl group Red Velvet. Fans, however, often find themselves wondering about the romantic side of the talented artist’s life. In this article, we delve into the speculations surrounding Seulgi’s dating life, explore the reasons behind K-pop stars’ tendency to keep their romantic endeavors private, and share insights into the artist’s background.
Who Is Seulgi?
Debuting with SM Entertainment’s Red Velvet in 2014, Seulgi quickly rose to fame alongside fellow members Irene, Wendy, Yeri, and Joy. Renowned for her impressive dance skills and vocal prowess, Seulgi took center stage as the main dancer. Additionally, she contributed to Red Velvet’s first sub-unit, Irene & Seulgi, and participated in the SM Entertainment supergroup Got the Beat, showcasing her versatility alongside bandmate Wendy.
Born in Ansan, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea, on February 10, 1994, Seulgi falls under the zodiac sign Aquarius. Having one older brother, she pursued her passion for the arts at the School of Performing Arts Seoul while undergoing seven years of training at SM Entertainment. An interesting tidbit about Seulgi is her bilingual proficiency in both Korean and English.
Is Red Velvet’s Seulgi Single?
As of now, Seulgi remains single, with no public confirmation of a relationship. Rumors, fueled by fans, have linked her romantically to various celebrities, including BTS’ Jimin.
In the realm of K-pop, publicly disclosed relationships are a rarity due to the anticipated backlash. Many K-pop companies even impose “dating bans” to discourage their artists from engaging in romantic entanglements. Consequently, fans often resort to speculating and “shipping” their favorite idols, even in the absence of concrete evidence beyond fleeting glances on Korean music shows.
Interestingly, within Red Velvet, there is an exception. Seulgi’s bandmate, Joy, made headlines in August 2021 by confirming her relationship with South Korean rapper Crush.
Joy’s Public Relationship
Both Crush’s label, P NATION, and Joy’s label, SM Entertainment, officially confirmed the relationship, describing it as a natural progression from a senior-junior connection. The news followed their collaboration on the song “May Day” in May 2020, where they also appeared together in the music video.
In a letter to fans after the revelation, Crush expressed his feelings, saying, “The number of days where I am smiling has increased due to the positivity and brightness of that person [referring to Joy], and my heart has also become healthier.”
While Seulgi’s romantic status remains shrouded in speculation, the world of K-pop continues to captivate fans with its enigmatic approach to relationships and the unwavering support from dedicated followers.
