Jinjin’s Dating Rumor
Falling in love with someone is normal for human beings, right? And the same goes for our idols as well. But sadly, dating matters for artists are still considered a taboo in Korea. Every time idols are involved in a dating scandal or are caught, especially by Dispatch (Korean platform news), they tend to get a lot of hate comments and backlash from the fans. And our leader, Jinjin once became a victim of a dating scandal.
It all started when one of Jinjin’s popular fan sites decided to close her account on Twitter. She wrote a long tweet to explain the issue and the fan site accused Jinjin of already having a girlfriend.
The translation says, “When I asked for a nickname this year and you wrote one down without hesitation.” Then continued, “Who would have thought it was the name of your girlfriend’s cat? Just what were you thinking while looking at the fans who found the name cute, saying it suited you and that they liked it. Also, let’s refrain from wearing couple’s shoes during schedules.”
It references the fan-site of one of Astro’s fan-signing events, and asks Jinjin if there is a nickname that he would like to be called in 2019.
The translation from the picture says, “I asked Jinwoo (JinJin’s real name) if there was a nickname we can call him this 2019 and he said: ‘Ddaenggeul JinJin’ (round/soft JinJin) Ddaengeul… Ddaengeul… Jinwoo is sharp but seeing him say this himself is adorable. Ddaengeul Jinwoo, fighting this year too.”
Right then, someone finally has been able to find the ‘girlfriend’s’ Instagram account. There was a photo of a cat, after being asked she confirmed that the cat name is Ddaengeul. Here is the screenshot of the conversation:
Ms. B: Is it Ddongeul?
Girlfriend: It’s Ddaengeul.
People then were able to find more evidence, such as couple stuff on the ‘girlfriend’ Instagram. This was considered to be an even more conclusive proof that Jinjin is allegedly dating her. For example, a black and white couple bracelets.
The ‘girlfriend’ seems to own the white one, while Jinjin owns the black one.
Also, she posted couple’s shoes, where we can see Jinjin wearing the same pair in a different photo.
Jinjin’s alleged girlfriend also posted a photo of her boyfriend where he hugs a cat. People started to believe that it was Jinjin, due to how similar the faces are. And the fact, Jinjin also has the same hat and shirt as well. Below you can check out the comparison photos.
This is the picture that the ‘girlfriend’ posted on her Instagram account:
And here is Jinjin’s picture, where he has the exact same shirt and hat.
After the rumors went viral, ‘Jinjin’s Girlfriend’ started trending on Twitter Korea. The hashtag was at the 13th position at that time, here is the evidence:
Regarding the issue, there isn’t any confirmation nor statement released neither from Fantagio Entertainment, nor Jinjin himself.
There are so many fans that are upset about the sudden news, but there are also fans that support him and believe he should be able to date whoever he wants to. Many fans agree, that he doesn’t have to be so obvious. And Jinjin shouldn’t have left so many hints that he was already seeing someone.
Beside fans, non-fan netizens have said that if he wanted to date then he should have admitted it coolly. Instead of dropping some hints, that could hurt his fans more. What do you think about this rumor, do you think it’s true? Or it was just a media play?
Jinjin Has a Tattoo?
These days, idols are getting braver than before. The most popular act of bravery is getting a tattoo, which in Korea is still considered to be a taboo. Astro’s leader Jinjin, also decided to get some tattoos on his body. Want to know more about it, right? Well then, let’s check out the full information from us below!
On August 9th, 2018, Jinjin wore a sleeveless tee at the airport. That is the first time, where the fans noticed the tattoo. Especially, the moment when Jinjin entered the car, showing that he has a tattoo on the chest area.
After leaving the airport, Astro had a special stage recording for “Always You” on M Countdown. In the picture below, you can see that he has a tape on the chest area which covers the tattoo. This kind of tape is usually being used when doing broadcasting or TV censorship since it’s not legal there.
Around December 2018, Jinjin finally revealed his tattoos to the public. The fans were so happy that he finally mustered the courage to do this, which is not easy at all.
On his chest, we can clearly see that the tattoo is a lion face in a crown. Fans found out that the tattoo was inspired by drawing artist Rachel.
Jinjin also has another tattoo on his ribs with some words of the wise that say: “Don’t chase money make money chase you. Treat yourself well to treat others well. Play with the process always be humble.” These inspiring words came from his mother for him, the quotes that he likes and also the things that he learned through many life experiences.
