The Truth Behind Those Dating Rumors Plaguing BTS’ Suga & K-Pop Star Suran

Is love in the air? ’cause rumor has it that K-Pop stars Suga and Suran are dating!

Rumors that the BTS rapper and his fellow South Korean musician are in a relationship began spreading after photos of the two hit the web, particularly this one from last year:

The romance gossip was even further fueled after the vocal talent, also known as Elena and Baily Shoo, recently posted a caption with the word “yoongi” on her Instagram. According to K-Pop website Soompi, that term means “shine” in Korean… but it’s also the 25-year-old BTS artist’s real name: Min Yoon-gi!

So, are they or aren’t they? According to his management company, Big Hit Entertainment, they are… NOT. “The dating rumors of Suga and Suran are not true,” BHE states. “They have only worked on music production together.”

Suran’s people echoed Suga’s team’s comments, saying, “It’s not true. Suga and Suran are close as friends who have high interest in music.”

Suga (a.k.a. Agust D) and Suran (real name Shin Su-ran) previously worked together on the female artist’s “Wine” song, which was released as the first single off her debut 2017 mini-album, Walkin’. Suran crooned the tune and Suga acted as the producer — and fans LOVED it. The track peaked at #2 on the Gaon Digital Chart, and turned out to be the 15th best selling song of 2017. It’s no wonder fans want them to collaborate again!
