The agency denies the rumors Yook Sung-jae BTOB dating a non-celebrity (A) circulating in online communities lately. Cube Entertainment stated that Yook Sung-jae was only acquainted with A.
“What was uploaded was not true. They were just acquaintances who played golf together,” a Cube Entertainment official said News MT on Wednesday (20/4).
The agency also explained the reason why A changed his Instagram account to private after rumors of dating BTOB’s Sung-jae circulated.
“After the romance rumors [beredar]there are many DMs asking A for facts. We think that’s why A changed his social networking site to private,” the agency wrote.
In recent days, the online community has been stirred up by articles that raised rumors of a romantic relationship between BTOB’s Sung-jae and a non-celebrity woman with the initials A.
The article highlighted a number of things, starting from Sung-jae being seen using the same cellphone case as A. In addition, Sung-jae’s voice was also heard in a video that A uploaded on social media.
This then made netizens suspect that the two were dating after finding a number of similarities.
Sung-jae is a member of the boy band BTOB which debuted in 2012 with five other members, namely Eun-kwang, Min-hyuk, Chang-sub, Hyun-sik, and Peniel. They debuted through the single Insane. He then made his solo debut through the mini album Yook O’Clock in 2020.

He became more known after starring in Goblin: The Lonely and Great God (2016) through his role as Yoo Deok-hwa. His funny and mischievous character managed to steal the audience’s attention.
