Is It True That Kang Haneul Has Been Dating Cheetah and Kim So-Eun?

When Kang Haneul heard the rumor, immediately denied having a special relationship with or date any of the two.
Kang Haneul said, “One of my female friends is nicknamed cheetah. I uploaded a photo that she sent me on Instagram which led to the dating rumors with the rapper Cheetah. I’ve never even met her.”
He stated the rumors of him dating rapper Cheetah. “She’s just a good friend. I feel sorry for her for what happened,” he said. “I would have to be an idiot to announce my girlfriend on Instagram for everyone to see. She was in a relationship with someone at the time but broke up because of the rumor. I still can’t contact her because of that,” he admitted. He also added, “I want to express everything I feel openly, but there are things that I am forced to hide. I’m doing everything I can to maintain control over those things.”
He also explained, “There’s no reason to call it a dating rumor. I’m very close with Kim So-Eun who filmed the movie Mourning Grave with me. We’re just friends from college. We’re not in a relationship like that.”
Kim So-Eun also confirmed that her relationship with Kang Haneul was nothing but friendship. Kim So-Eun stated, “No! I am not dating Kang Haneul.

Before this statement, it was reported that Kang Haneul and IU were spotted at a café together on September 10th, just one day before his enlistment. One news outlet had claimed that they were wearing coordinated outfits, and reported about how he was spending his last day as a civilian with the singer.

Kang Haneul’s status is currently single, and he revealed it himself. “I don’t have a girlfriend now, but when I do, I don’t think it’s such a big deal for the public to know the relationship. I don’t see the need to lie about seeing someone I like.”

Moreover, in early 2015, he said, “I just know the theory of love, but I haven’t had a girlfriend for more than a year.”
