8. [+52, -8] Guys, there’s not a day that newspapers aren’t packed with political-related articles. But you obviously don’t know because political issues are the least of your concerns. . Don’t think that political scandals only break out when articles about dating scandals are released, because there is something happening out there all the time. Stop creating conspiracies on your own but get in the habit of knowing more about politics.
9. [+40, -4] She was Kim Tan’s fianceé in ‘Heirs’. Kim Tan broke up with Suzy and the fianceé’s finally dating someone ㅋㅋㅋㅌ
I personally love both of them, individually and together, so this dating rumour news came as a pleasant surprise to me. Though the rumour was denied, but it is also nice to know that they are actually close friends ❤. What do you think of Yoo Yeon Seok’s first ever (ㅋㅋㅋ) dating rumour?
