Kim Se Jeong drew a clear line on suspicion of her dating EXO’s Sehun, stressing that she has never contacted him personally.
On Jan 11, Kim Se Jeong hosted her Instagram live streaming and had time to communicate with her fans. Talking about various things, including her hit drama The Uncanny Counter, she cautiously added, “I didn’t know if I should say this and I pondered over it a lot, but fans, please don’t worry.”
“Yes, I admit we are close and have good chemistry, but I’ve never contacted him personally, and all we did was have fun filming Busted. So please, don’t worry,” she continued. “More messages and comments than I thought were written, and some of them wrote things on my parent’s Instagram account. I thought a lot about whether I should say this or not, but I hope you stop sending bad words.”
This is believed to be a statement about rumors surfacing about her and her Busted castmate Sehun. Se Jeong and Sehun starred in the Netflix show Busted series since 2018 and received great interest for their chemistry. But since the time Se Jeong posted a selfie of her and Sehun in the waiting room of a music show, some fans have started leaving malicious messages telling her to stop “seducing” Sehun.
Netizens are speculating that Se Jeong carefully brought the issue up, wary of suspicions and overinterpretation, as Busted 3 has confirmed its release on the 22nd.
물론 친하고 예능에서 캐미도 있는건 인정하지만 사적으로도 연락한적도 없고 정말 재미있게 범바너만 찍은 거니까 걱정하실 필요는 없어요. 생각보다 많은 DM,댓글,심지어 부모님 인스타에까지 안좋은 말들을 올리세요. 그래서 이얘기를 할까말까 고민을 했는데 그런말들은 안보내주셨으면 좋겠어요. pic.twitter.com/8DwpFNK1IX
