Many started shipping the two after “Business Proposal” aired.
Actress and idol Kim Sejeong (also stylized as Kim Se Jeong) recently made a trip to Japan, having shared some pictures of her trip with her fans.
Later actor Ahn Hyo Seop also shared pictures of himself, which led to speculation from fans that he had also traveled to Japan with Sejeong.
Hyo Seop later deleted his post and then reuploaded it after deleting some pictures, making fans more convinced that the two had traveled together.
Hyoseop is always very careful when posting pictures on his IG and today he did something very different. Hyoseop made no mistake, he really wanted to tell us the fact that he went to Japan with Sejeong🏠❤️😋 pic.twitter.com/lSNlbSyywM

However, Sejeong recently held a Weverse Live broadcast, where she shut down the rumors, refuting the specuation that she went to Japan with Hyo Seop.
There’s a rumor that Hyo Seop oppa and I went to Japan together? Why would I go to Japan with oppa?
— Kim Sejeong
Instead, she named her best friend and older brother as the people she went on the trip with.
Hold up hold up – to be accurate, I went with my friend, my best friend, and my older brother. Beep beep.
— Kim Sejeong
Sejeong: “there’s a rumor about me and hyoseop oppa going to japan? why would i go to japan with oppa?”

While others pointed out that she shouldn’t have had to clarify her private life in the first place, taking this as a reminder that shippers should respect boundaries.

Especially since Sejeong had to address the rumors during a live broadcast when she has many other exciting things to talk to fans about, like the upcoming second season of Uncanny Counter.
imagine making the person you claim to be a fan of, clarify things like this on a live broadcast🤦♀
this isnt even the first time she clarified these things. ALSO, she went live TO TALK TO US. might as well just tell her how excited you are for her upcoming drama??? + https://t.co/Dyw5N5yZgM
