Actress-singer Kim Sejeong has recently become the talk of the town as rumors about her going on a secret romantic trip with her A Business Proposal co-star, Ahn Hyo-seop, did the rounds online. This comes after Ahn Hyo-seop and Kim Sejeong shared pictures from their recent separate trips to Japan. Although neither of them featured in the other’s pictures, fans assumed that they were on a couple’s trip.
The discussions began gaining momentum on social media when Ahn Hyo-seop deleted the pictures. This led many to believe that the A Business Proposal co-stars were in a steady relationship.
Kim Sejeong recently hosted a Weverse Live and addressed the dating rumors surrounding her and Ahn Hyo-seop.
“Why would I go to Japan with oppa?,” the singer-actress asked rhetorically.

Kim Sejeong hosted a Weverse Live broadcast where she addressed the recent dating rumors surrounding her and Ahn Hyo-seop. The All of My Days singer was asked whether she and Ahn Hyo-seop took a trip to Japan together and the singer-actress looked visibly surprised and asked:
“There’s a rumor spreading that Hyo Seop and I went to Japan together? Why would I go to Japan with him?”
She then clarified that she went to Japan with her older brother and best friend and had no idea that Ahn Hyo-seop was in Japan as well and did not meet him or click any pictures with him. Fans are lauding Kim Sejeong for addressing and clarifying the dating rumors with Ahn Hyo-seop on her own and not waiting for her agency to do the needful.
Additionally, @filmhyoseop revealed that a Japanese fan spotted Ahn Hyo-seop with his friend and SF9’s Rowoon a few days ago and thus fans believe Kim Sejeong’s version of the story.
Fans are also reminding each other that they should not concern themselves with idols’ personal lives. Although a lot of fans feel that the actress didn’t need to address the rumors about her personal relationship with Ahn Hyo-seop, most of them are happy she cleared the air.
