Back in September, dating rumors broke out that Infinite’s L was dating Kim Do Yeon, an online shop owner and aspiring actress. Woollim Entertainment denied the rumors, saying they were just friends, but now Kim Do Yeon has stepped forward to say otherwise.
Woollim Entertainment responded on November 26 through an official statement. The statement reads, “When the dating rumors of L were revealed in September, we found out that they’d been dating for about four months. At the time, L wanted to publicly announce his relationship with Miss Kim. But the agency didn’t truthfully acknowledge the news in an attempt to protect our artists. About this, we want to send our sincere apologies. After the reports in August, due to all the attention from the public as well as the world tour schedules, we’ve heard that they haven’t met once and have become estranged. We hope that through this issue, L, Miss Kim, as well as the fans stop receiving hurt. As an agency, we will do our best to mediate this. Once again, we want to apologize to the fans who love Infinite, media affiliates, and everyone for not being able to tell the truth.”
The official statement comes after Kim Do Yeon took to Twitter, saying that she could not handle the internet abuse she was receiving after the rumors started about the two in September. She verbally confirmed that the two were actually dating and that she would report the netizens who bullied her to the police.
