Blackpink’s Jisoo and English Premier League footballer Son Heung-min, of Tottenham Hotspur FC, have been linked for close to two years, even though YG Entertainment has continuously tried to squash the rumours. Here we delve into the pair’s seemingly intertwined fate.

When things started

Things started back in 2019, when Jisoo happened to be in London during the Chuseok (known as Korean Thanksgiving) holiday. She attended a Spurs game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, sitting alongside some of her staff, seemingly just as a tourist. However, the star was soon swept up in rumours when she posted an Instagram story of the game with a caption that cheered on the players.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that her story included Son Heung-min scoring a goal. As Son is known as one of South Korea’s most valued athletes and that came at the peak of his popularity domestically, many dismissed it as an act of patriotism.

Rumours on the rise

However, rumours soon began to swirl around the two when they kept being caught in the same country at the same time. True, Son had been in Europe playing for his team, while Jisoo was touring the continent with Blackpink. But was it really always coincidence?

Most recently, the two were linked again in October 2021, when they both flew into South Korea from Europe to meet their respective schedules. Jisoo had finished up her duties at Paris Fashion Week with Dior and returned to her homeland on October 5. Son had flown back to South Korea to play in a 2022 Fifa World Cup Asia qualifier on October 7 – although media noted that he returned on October 5, the same day as Jisoo. Not only that, but he had specifically flown in on the flight from Paris, rather than London, where his team are based.

YG Entertainment’s denial

YG Entertainment swiftly issued a denial the day the rumours broke. They stated, “We would like to clarify that all the dating rumours related to Blackpink’s Jisoo are not true. We have been aware of the rumours circulating. Considering that it has become widespread, among international fans as well, we now believe the situation calls for an official statement. Please stop the unreasonable spread of false rumours.”

So what’s the truth?

This is not the first time Son has been rumoured to be dating someone from the entertainment industry. Previously, he was linked to actress Yoo So-young in 2015, and Girl’s Day’s Minah in 2014. He acknowledged his relationships publicly on both counts, but his relationship with Jisoo has seemingly been kept completely private.

In fact, Son’s team has never denied nor addressed the matter of his possible relationship with Jisoo. YG Entertainment has typically taken one of two paths when it comes to rumours surrounding their artists. While they rarely provide a confirmation, YG either takes a vague approach, claiming they cannot verify the personal lives of their artists, or else provide a firm denial, such as when they responded to rumours about Jisoo’s fellow band member Jennie and Big Bang’s G-Dragon.

Whatever the case, they sure look good together. The Posh and Becks of South Korea, perhaps? We’re keeping a close eye.
