Lee Jong-suk’s Dating Rumor With Kwon Nara
Lee Jong-suk was serving in the military as a public service officer after starring in the drama Romance is a Bonus Book. He started his duties on March 8, 2019. However, his military service did not prevent Lee Jong-suk from being exposed to gossip. On August 1, 2019, Korean media reported that actress Lee Na-young’s co-star was secretly in a relationship with Kwon Nara, a former member of the girl group Hello Venus.
According to several sources, as reported by Newsis, Lee Jong-suk first met Nara when she was still a member of Hello Venus. Lee Jong-suk also directly contacted Nara to join the agency he founded, A-MAN Project.
One source revealed to Newsis that Lee Jong-suk holds the position of CEO of A-MAN Project, and he put a lot of effort into recruiting Nara. Sources also claim to have seen the two of them on a date, including at a cafe owned by Lee Jong-suk in the Shinsadong area, Seoul. When asked about this issue, A-MAN Project representatives stated that they would first check the facts. But, not long after the news circulated, they finally gave a statement.
The A-MAN Project denied reports that Lee Jong-suk was in a relationship with Nara. “The news released today saying that they are dating is wrong. They are just close seniors and juniors,” said A-MAN Project. Meanwhile, Nara left her old agency, Fantagio Entertainment, after Hello Venus disbanded in April 2019. The 1991-born idol joined Lee Jong-suk’s agency in June 2019.
