Buying a Ring
On December 28th, 2017, Gree appeared on the Trick and True talk show, aired on KBS2. While the show was still on the air, Gree told the other members who were on the show that he wished that the recording would end up early, because that day was a very special day for him. The cast members of the show were suspicious after hearing Gree’s statement and asked him what was so important and special about that day.
Gree then answered, as the show was still recording, by saying that day was the 1-year-anniversary of his relationship with his girlfriend. The rapper who also appeared as a cast member in the drama Golden Rainbow (2013), explained without any hesitation that he needs to spend the time with her. What made the audience and members of the show shocked about Gree’s explanation was that he also said that he has already prepared the first engraved couples ring for his girlfriend as a gift.
The MC of the show, Jun Hyun-moo responded back in a joking manner and said that Gree needs to come back soon in this show to film together with his girlfriend but he also included a thankful comment because Gree could spare his time to come as a guest on this show.
Before wearing the couple rings given as a gift for his 1-year-anniversary with his girlfriend, Gree used to wear a lucky ring that he once uploaded a photo of on his personal Instagram account.
Gree posted a photo on February 19th, 2017, on his personal Instagram account with a caption, “My Lucky Ring Always On TV.” He later uploaded a photo of his and his girlfriend’s fists wearing their couple’s rings.
Getting a License to Drive With His Girlfriend
On December 14th, 2017, Gree appeared as one of the cast members in the television program True Dad Confession, with her father, Kim Gu-ra. During one of the episodes, Gree was studying for the written exam of the driver’s license test.
Kim Gu-ra once told his son that he should buy a car that’s suitable for his age, but first, he needs to pass the test to get a driver’s license so his dad would teach him how to drive a car. After he has accomplished all of the terms, he can buy a city car.
When Gree was asked by his father, what he wanted to do the most when he gets a car, the rapper who sang the song, “Don’t You Love Me,” confessed that he just wants to drive around the city with his girlfriend and drive to work by himself.
Kim Gu-ra is known as a supportive dad, he taught his son by buying a practice exam book and letting his son try a simulator to drive a car. However, Gree jokingly said at the end that his father is not really helpful which was followed by a burst of huge laughter from the audience.
On September 28th, 2017, during an episode of True Dad Confession, Gree surprised everyone, because his father, Kim Gu-ra, found out that he filled for a marriage license without telling his parents first.
The first thing that made him realize there was something fishy in that situation was finding the marriage license form that had been filed and folded inside a pocket. Kim Gu-ra asked his son, Gree, if the thing that he found is true, whether Gree and his girlfriend actually filled the marriage license form.
Kim Gu-ra, as the most popular TV host, questioned Gree a lot and scolded him saying that if he’s really about to file for a marriage license he has to tell his parents first. At the end of the filming, Gree told the producers that he got information that a marriage license could be printed out and he filled it only to surprise his girlfriend and submitting the form later on.
Two years later, after the marriage license form had blown up the whole nation, MC Gree appeared as a guest in an episode of Knowing Brothers, aired on JTBC, on May 5th, 2018.
At this time, Gree looked more mature with his changed appearance and he decided to clarify the controversy that he had made in the past. In a previous television program, the rapper who joined as a contestant of High School Rapper (2017) aired on Mnet, revealed that he has a positive side of himself when it comes to love. His relationship with his girlfriend has been going on for 3 years and he said that they will be going on a short picnic to see the cherry blossoms at the traditional village.
When the cast members of Knowing Brothers asked him about the marriage license that brought controversy in his life, Gree responded by saying that he wouldn’t regret having a public marriage with his girlfriend. The real situation was explained by Gree, saying that they simply went to the government office and saw the marriage license, so they filled the form just for fun, but didn’t actually submit it. A few moments later, Kim Gu-ra, his father, found out about the marriage license form in his son’s pocket and that’s how the story blew up during the filming of True Dad Confession.
So then, the marriage license that Gree filled with his girlfriend is indeed true, but they haven’t submitted it for real because they are still concerned with their personal life.
After 3 years of dating each other, Brand New Music as Gree’s agency released a statement about the news of their artist’s current relationship status.
The rapper, whose real name is Kim Dong-hyun, himself stated and confirmed through the representative from his agency, that the relationship between him and his girlfriend of 3 years has actually ended. The agency did not explain the details about the actual reasons for the breakup of the 3-year-long relationship out of respect for his privacy.
Gree was really confident showing off his relationship with his girlfriend since 2016 and expressing how grateful he is to be a loving boyfriend. His girlfriend is a non-celebrity woman and they probably knew each other from school.
Well, those are all the information about Gree’s relationship in the past and his breakup news. Let’s hope for all the best in his career in the future and pray he finds the next girlfriend soon!
