Dating rumors swirled around MAMAMOO’s Hwasa last year. Reports claimed she’d been seeing a businessman 12 years her senior for five years, with Hwasa supposedly making the first move. However, getting an answer was tricky as Hwasa’s contract with RBW had just expired.

But soon after, Hwasa signed with P NATION and they briefly addressed the rumors, saying, “This is a personal matter.” While Hwasa stayed silent, some saw P NATION’s response as a subtle nod to her relationship. They reasoned that mentioning “personal matter” meant respecting Hwasa’s privacy choice.

Joshua‘s dating rumors with a non-celebrity surfaced in August. Online communities alleged that they wore matching items, had “lovestagram” moments and even lived together. However, Pledis Entertainment remained silent, neither confirming nor denying the rumors.

The lack of response from the agency further agitated the fandom. In particular, eyewitness accounts of the alleged girlfriend attending a SEVENTEEN concert in the VIP section fueled anger among fans. Fans pointed out that many fans were unable to attend the concert due to fierce ticketing war, and that the concert should be dedicated solely to the fans. On the other hand, some argued that Joshua’s personal life should not be subject to fan scrutiny, leading to heated debates within the fandom.

Public opinion remains divided, with some understanding the fans’ frustration while others criticizing their excessive actions. The controversy continues, with malicious comments targeting the non-celebrity girl also being reported.
