TWICE’s Jihyo and Olympic skeleton racer Yun Sung Bin spark dating rumors – report


TWICE’s Jihyo and former Olympic skeleton racer Yun Sung Bin are reportedly in a relationship.

According to Korean media reports, the rumored couple has been quietly dating for approximately a year.

Their relationship is said to have blossomed from their shared passion for fitness, initially connecting through “mutual acquaintances” before starting their romance.

“Jihyo and Yoon Sung Bin are both fitness enthusiasts. Yoon Sung Bin’s guidance in exercises brought them closer, swiftly evolving their bond into a romantic relationship,” AllKpop quoted an insider from the entertainment industry.

Reports also stated that sources close to the pair revealed that the two were frequently spotted dating in the Geumho-dong neighborhood in the Seongdong-gu district of Seoul.

The two also reportedly live just a brief “5-minute drive” away from each other, making it possible for them to spend time together by visiting each other’s homes.

Other sources even noted Sung Bin’s frequent visits to Jihyo’s residence, where the two “naturally engaged in affectionate displays”.

It is worth noting that both Jihyo and Yun Sung Bin became cast members of the popular Korean reality show “I Live Alone”.

Sung Bin made his debut on the show in June 2023 followed by Jihyo’s entrance in August.

Jihyo released her first-ever solo album “ZONE” last year, becoming the second TWICE member to promote as a soloist next to Nayeon.

The idol previously dated fellow K-pop soloist Kang Daniel until they confirmed their split, ending their one-year-and three-month relationship in 2020.

On the other hand, Sung Bin marked his name in Olympic history by clinching the gold medal in men’s skeleton at the 2018 Winter Olympics. The former athlete has now transitioned into the field of broadcasting following his retirement in 2022.

Neither Jihyo, her talent agency, JYP Entertainment, and Sung Bin have yet to release their statements about the issue as of writing.
