Girls' Generation's Yuri confirms she is in a relationship
Another member of Girls Generation is in love! Yuri and Hanshin Tigers pitcher Oh Seung Hwan are the latest celebrity couple photographed by media outlet Dispatch. The news source released a series of photos of the pair going on dates last year. In response to the paparazzi shots, Yuri's agency, SM Entertainment, confirmed that they are dating.
"They met each other late last month at a meeting with mutual friends. They're getting to know each other and like each other," an SM representative said.
Rumors recently began swirling that their relationship is common knowledge in the pro-baseball league. They were first seen together in November 2014. Past photos of the stars suggest they dated regularly during the last two months of last year.
According to Sunday News, an entertainment and sports insider praised their relationship, but the sports insider also showed concern for the stability of the union now that the media knows they are an item.
"They like each other a lot, and I'm worried excessive interest might ruin their relationship. As stars that represent the entertainment and sports worlds, I think they need quiet support so they can love each other, while still doing the best in their careers more than they need excessive interest," the source said.
Yuri is the fifth GG member to openly admit to dating another celebrity. Yoona is with actor Lee Seung Gi, Sooyoung is paired with Falling in Love with Soon Jung actor Jung Kyung Ho, Tiffany and 2PM's Nichkhun are together, and Taeyeon is dating fellow labelmate, EXO's Baekhyun.
Who do you think the remaining members Hyoyeon and Seohyun will choose to date?
