SEVENTEEN’s Joshua and Momoland’s Jane have been linked in the past with rumors that the two had dated. Recently, when Joshua was reported to be dating an online influencer, the past dating rumors began to make headlines again. Jane has now personally responded to the rumors, firmly dispelling any connections between her and Joshua.
In an emotional message, Jane clarified that she had never met Joshua in person, and that the same held true for the people around her. She explained that she was confused as to how these baseless rumors originated in the first place. Jane also expressed her discomfort in addressing the issue but felt compelled to do so in order to provide clarity for her fans.
She went on to explain that many people contacted her agency to get confirmation on the rumors which resulted in misunderstandings between her and the label. She acknowledged that her lack of response to the rumors has only contributed to the speculation around them. With a heavy heart, she chose to confront the issue, and to not let any misunderstanding continue.
Joshua, who is a member of the South Korean boy band SEVENTEEN, has also been linked to a South Korean influencer Cho Mi Young. She was seen attending SEVENTEEN’s concert which sparked dating allegations along with the photos that showed them wearing similar clothing.
It is understandable that Jane felt the need to address the issue as the rumors had been circulating for a while without any confirmation from either party. While the truth regarding Joshua and Choi Mi Young’s relationship still remains a mystery, Jane’s statement has put an end to any further speculation.
