SISTAR is a girl group under Starship Entertainment and has indeed disbanded on May 31st, 2017, after 7 years together. But one of its former personnel, Yoon Bo-ra or better known by the stage name Sistar’s Bora, came with good news.
On June 28th, 2017, local media reported that the last year Bora had a relationship with Feeldog, a member of BIG STAR. According to a source, the two got close after starring together in Mnet’s Hit The Stage, a television program that brings K-Pop idols together with professional dancers.

The source even said that Feeldog often drove Bora’s car, which shows that the two are comfortable interacting with each other. On May 9th, 2017, to coincide with the South Korean Presidential Election, Feeldog and Bora were also seen together. Even though they came separately to the polls, the two of them waited for each other. They were also seen going home together holding hands.
After the news broke, Brave Entertainment, Feeldog’s agency, finally confirmed the truth of the article. “After asking Feeldog about this matter, it is true that the two of them are currently in a relationship,” the agency stated. However, Brave Entertainment denied that the relationship had been going on for the past year. “The relationship has only been running for six months, not a year as reported. They were close after appearing in Hit The Stage,” they added.
A similar statement was also made by Hook Entertainment, which oversees Bora. The agency stated, “After confirming it with Bora, it is true that she is dating Feeldog.” Big Star’s Feeldog and Bora had a very good romantic relationship as a couple and often shared their moments together via uploads on Instagram.
Feeldog also had time to be on a television show. In the program, the handsome idol talked about his girlfriend, Bora. In one segment, a member of Big Star revealed a romantic gift he gave to Bora.
On February 19th, 2019, Feeldog was one of the guest stars of Video Star. In one segment, the handsome idol talked about his hobby of drawing. “I just had an exhibition and people bought my work,” he said. Feeldog also surprised everyone in the studio when he revealed that he is a romantic person. “Usually I draw or write letters to my girlfriend,” he said.
Hearing this confession, one of the MCs of Video Star, Dara, also asked a question that touched on the question of Bora, the former member of SISTAR. As is well known, Bora and Feeldog were at the time having a love story. Dara asked if Feeldog did the same thing (give pictures and letters) for Bora. “Yes, I gave gifts of paintings or portraits that I drew myself. I drew while thinking about her (Bora),” he concluded.
In addition to this event, Feeldog has also appeared as a guest star on the program Ranking 1,2,3 which aired on September 22nd, 2017. At that time, he was asked about the affectionate call he gave Bora on his cellphone. Feeldog shyly replied that he only wrote Noona. He calls Bora noona because Bora is 3 years older than Feeldog.
Bora and Feeldog’s relationship was revealed in June 2017. At that time, the two agencies immediately confirmed that the couple who met through Mnet’s Hit The Stage program were indeed in a relationship.
On May 10th, 2019, the media reported that the love affair between Bora and Feeldog had ended. Hook Entertainment as Bora’s agency confirmed that the former SISTAR member had indeed ended her relationship with Feeldog. “It’s true that they broke up,” said Hook Entertainment’s representative. Brave Entertainment as the agency Feeldog also stated, “It is true that Feeldog and Bora broke up. We heard the news a month ago.”
The end of the relationship between Bora and Feeldog was also a concern and invited comments from netters. It seems that not a few netters didn’t even know that the two of them were involved in a dating relationship.
“I didn’t know Bora had a boyfriend!” “It seems like a lot of people find out about their relationship through the news when they broke up. Hahaha. I’m not sure if this is a good right or a bad thing.” “I give them support because they don’t hide the relationship without any madness. There’s nothing wrong with young men and women breaking up.” “It’s so scary the lack of popularity. I didn’t even know they were dating.” “I was more shocked when I found out they’ve been together for two years but there’s no one. Who knows,” read various comments on social media.
