SNSD’s Kwon Yuri’s Love Life

As a part of the most popular South Korea’s girl group in the history, all the things that SNSD’s Kwon Yuri does must be in the spotlight, including her private matters. Though considered to rarely have dating rumors compared to other SNSD members, the gossip of Yuri’s love life had buzzed strangely in the mid-2010s through an online forum from an insider that she was involved in a love triangle with senior actress Son Ye-jin and Han Ye-seul. The bizarre and unusual rumor was soon buried in 2015 as Yuri went public with her boyfriend.

SNSD’s Kwon Yuri Dating News

On 20 April 2015, SNSD’s Kwon Yuri is reported to be dating baseball player Oh Seung-hwan. Yuri’s agency SM Entertainment confirmed the news as lots of pictures of Yuri and Oh Seung-hwan’s date captured by Dispatch have surfaced in various media outlets. Draped in an army coat and black pants, hat, and shoes, Yuri was seen to walk in the parking lot with Oh Seung-hwan who wore a white shirt paired with grey hoodie jacket and black trousers. On another picture is Yuri and Oh Seung-hwan’s date during Christmas Eve.

It was stated that SNSD’s Kwon Yuri and Japan’s Hanshin Tigers pitcher Oh Seung-hwan have been dating since November 2014. They usually enjoyed dates with friends as well as simple dates in a restaurant in Incheon, going to an amusement park, watching a movie in the Gangnam theater, and Christmas Eve date. The seven-year age gap couple met in early March as Yuri did not return to South Korea after recording the Japanese version of Catch Me If You Can with other SNSD members, Reportedly, she spent five days of personal schedules in Osaka and during that time, Oh Seung-hwan had an exhibition game in Japan where he stood on the mount for the first time which made the public suspect that both of them are indeed dating.

Unfortunately, SNSD’s Kwon Yuri and Oh Seung-hwan broke up in October 2015. SM Entertainment confirmed Oh Seung-hwan’s close acquaintance who stated that the long-distance pair has parted ways. The reason of Yuri and Oh Seung-hwan’s break up is because of their busy schedule as Oh Seung-hwan has to stay in Japan for his baseball team during the game season whereas Yuri was busy promoting with SNSD for their new album as well as her personal schedule, hence the final decision to break up.

Hopefully, Yuri will find her one true love soon!
