G-Dragon and Nana Komatsu are in Relationship?
We all know BIGBANG’s leader G-Dragon, not only for his music, but his fashion sense as well. It’s not uncommon to see his photoshoots in magazines, either individually or partnered up with a model. That’s how G-Dragon met Nana Komatsu, a Japanese model, who posed with him for Nylon magazine. The pair actually first met at a Chanel collections event in Seoul in 2015. It was then reported that the artist was dating the model. Was it true? What’s the truth about their relationship? Channel-Korea will provide more information about G-Dragon and Nana Komatsu, so stay tuned!
The Truth About Their Relationship
The story started when a Japanese news outlet revealed that the two were spotted together on a date in May, 2016. According to Soompi, the article also revealed that after a fan-meeting on May 6, G-Dragon met Nana Komatsu in the Azabu district in Tokyo. There was a video of their alleged restaurant date spreading on Instagram. Furthermore, it was revealed that Nana Komatsu was actually G-Dragon’s fan and she wanted to get closer to him as a fan. She even posted a picture of herself at a BIGBANG concert. People started to make comparisons and thought Nana Komatsu resembled Kiko Mizuhara, G-Dragon’s former girlfriend. Let’s check out their intimate photoshoot for Nylon magazine.
In September 2016, the rumor resurfaced due to leaked Instagram posts on G-Dragon’s private Instagram account (@peaceminusone) before being deleted. According to Soompi, in one photo, it looked like G-Dragon and Nana Komatsu were having dinner together.
His fellow BIGBANG member even left a comment, “Let’s write a song. It’ll be called ‘Lovers.’” In another photo, it looked like a woman with her back to the camera was sitting in front of G-Dragon while he had his hand on her back.
People speculated that the woman was Nana Komatsu. There were also other photos, like the one below.
In response to the rumors, a source from YG Entertainment told Donga.com that it had not been confirmed yet, and usually the agency would not just give a response every one of those rumors, indicating that there would not be any official statement. In another response to Sport Daily, they said that it was the artist’s private life.
Meanwhile, G-Dragon, himself, uploaded a photo that seemed likely to be a response to the rumor and the hacked private Intagram account (including leaked photos).
On MBC’s Radio Star, when asked about his relationship with Nana Komatsu, he saidthat they were in an ambiguous phase, that he could not say whether they’re in a relationship or not. Moreover, he said that if the woman of his life (in the future) wanted to go public, he would do so and, if not, then he would not do it. He thought that his status as a public figure could negatively effect his partner if he were open about a relationship.
Nana Komatsu is Actually Dating Masaki Suda?
According to Soompi, not long after the private Instagram photos were leaked, Japanese outlets reported that Nana Komatsu was actually dating actor Masaki Suda. Livedoor News also reported that Nana Komatsu X Masaki Suda’s relationship was quite famous, and asked, “Isn’t Nana Komatsu’s boyfriend Masaki Suda?” in response to Nana Komatsu X G-Dragon’s dating rumor.
Another Japanese outlet, CyzoWoman, stated that Nana Komatsu met Masaki Suda while filming Drowning Love. They became closer, and have been dating ever since. They also reported that if we looked at when Nana Komatsu started dating Masaki Suda and when the photo with G-Dragon was taken, the possibility that Nana Komatsu might have been cheating can’t be ruled out. A different news outlet also claimed that they had reported several times about Nana Komatsu X Masaki Suda’s relationship. However, there was no confirmation from the artists involved.
Nana Komatsu is still active as model and actress. She took the lead role for the upcoming Japanese movies in 2020, Sakura and Ito. Recently, she posted a video of herself walking in an Chanel event.
Meanwhile, G-Dragon is currently fulfilling his military service as an active duty soldier. It was reported that he will be discharged on October 26, 2019. Recently, he posted a set of pictures on his Instagram, after nine months since his last post.
There might be reasons why they chose not to say anything regarding the rumors. Whether the dating rumor was true or not, it is better to let the artists have their own life and respect their privacy. Let’s all show our support for them and look forward for their activities in the future!
