BtoB’s Lee Minhyuk’s Girlfriend and Past Relationships


Every idol has their own love life. Some of them cover it up, some of them share their love stories openly. Minhyuk is one of the idols who shares his love life. Minhyuk admitted that he once fell in love with a girl who his very similar to him in aspects such as height, blood type, etc. But, apparently it was a one-sided relationship. Minhyuk confessed his feelings towards her five times, but their relationship did not last long. After he became an idol, he once could not choose between Jewelry’s Yewon and Spica’s Jiwon. Looks like they are both close to Minhyuk’s ideal type.

In early 2017, Minhyuk had a controversy involving someone who he thought was his ex-girlfriend. According to reports, Minhyuk sent her a message through Instagram to see how she was doing. But, her current boyfriend got angry, and left angry comments on Minhyuk’s Instagram account. Later, the ex-girlfriend denied that she had ever dated Minhyuk, but netizens think it was a ‘strategy’ so that the controversy would end quickly. On April 14, 2017, Minhyuk wrote a letter to fans explaining what had happened. The translation of his letter is as follows:

“I feel that it’s embarrassing to go on and on explaining what happened, and it may cause further misunderstanding. This is why I’m giving a simple explanation. Yesterday during the day, I sent my former girlfriend a message. I was curious how she was doing because it’s been a while, so I sent a message that said, ‘Why don’t I have your number?’ That was all, but in the end, I did something stupid that I shouldn’t have done.

It wasn’t a meaningful message, and I was just asking how she was doing in passing. However, it seems I’ve made a silly mess. Her boyfriend may have been angry, as he left a comment on my Instagram expressing his unhappiness. Despite the reason I sent the message, I was in the wrong for sending a message without knowing she has a boyfriend.

This has made me realize that it’s immature to think of past relationships. Melodies could’ve gone on without knowing about this, but instead of letting rumors spread, I thought it would be better to just explain myself.

There’s nothing more I can say. Please don’t look into it too much. The recent rumors concerning me are almost all false. The members and I have a deep, big love for Melody. If there are those who were disappointed because of this recent issue, I apologize. With this situation in mind, I’ll take extra care about my actions in the future.”

After the controversy with the ex-girlfriend, there have been no official statements or rumors about Minhyuk dating anyone, at least for now.

So, what do you think about Minhyuk? As someone who is passionate about and talented in acting, singing, rapping, and dancing, Minhyuk is indeed born to beat as an entertainer. Let’s keep supporting Minhyuk and BtoB!
