Han Groo announces her boyfriend on Instagram
Han Groo is dating, and she doesn't care who knows it! After the actress posted photos with her non-celebrity boyfriend to her personal Instagram account on May 20, her agency confirmed that she is in a relationship.
On May 20, Han Groo posted this series of photos to Instagram with the caption "Be happy hehe."
Aren't they so cute together? They look like a really fun couple!
Later that day, a representative from her agency clarified, "We were not aware at first, as it is her private life. After checking with her, it is true that she is currently dating, although we did not ask for any specifics. Her boyfriend is a non-celebrity. The two of them are meeting well so please give them your support."
A source close to Han said that the two met through the actress's circle of friends, and they have been very open about their relationship. "They regularly go on dates in public while holding hands and are completely open with each other, ” the source explained.
Explaining why the actress decided to post the photos openly, the same source said, “Han Groo is enjoying her life as any other normal 24-year-old girl would. From what I know, she decided to reveal her relationship due to worries that her boyfriend might get hurt if it is made known through speculative articles later on, as he isn’t a celebrity.”
With the backlash that some Korean celebrities have received over their dating lives and the intense secrecy that often surrounds celebrity dating, it's refreshing to see an actress living her life and enjoying dating like the 24-year-old that she is. Good for her! Hopefully the netizens leave her and her boyfriend in peace and allow them to date openly.
Best of luck to the new couple!
