1. [+1,965, -57] Hul... that makes it so awkward for Seolhyun if he's denying it when there are already pictures of her going in and out of his house... that's a bit wrong
2. [+1,902, -88] Zico trying to survive this on his own ㅋㅋㅋ that's quite dirty of him
3. [+1,441, -36] After all those pictures of Seolhyun running into his house in a short dress and he's denying it? What does that make her??
4. [+229, -5] That's cowardly of him... There's already so much evidence and he's just denying it ㅋㅋ maybe he has another woman?
5. [+191, -13] As if making a woman run for him like that isn't bad enough, he's just a ba$tard isn't he?
6. [+185, -4] I bet their Katalk situation right now is like:
Seolhyun: Wait, weren't we dating after that day...?
Zico: ...? ㅋ What're you talking about? Don't misunderstand
7. [+178, -6] Maybe he was just going to use her to sleep with her but now that the dating scandal is out, he doesn't want to take responsibility of her either? Seolhyun's probably thinking they were a thing before this
8. [+177, -6] No wonder it was always only Seolhyun running in ㅜ
9. [+158, -12] Come on Zico, a man shouldn't be like that
10. [+138, -5] If he had just confidently confirmed it, everyone would've thought they were a loving couple... but now Seolhyun's image is in the toilet and Zico just looks like an a$$~
Article: Fans are leaving? Zico's fans 'refund' fan gifts at news of his dating

1. [+726, -13] Why can't fans just realize that you can like the idols for what they show on TV and buying their albums. Why spend so much money on their birthdays and everything? You spend all this money on them and all they do is spend it on their girlfriends or buying new cars and real estate.
2. [+438, -59] Still can't believe they called it a "close junior and senior relationship" ㅋㅋㅋㅋ since when do juniors and seniors f*ck each other? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Is this some sort of celebrity prostitution relationship? Is that why Seolhyun's running in all the time? Because she's on a time schedule? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
3. [+188, -3] You poor fans... if you have the money to buy Zico gifts, why don't you try spending that on buying new underwear for your parents
4. [+50, -12] They were going to buy him birthday presents but now they aren't because he's dating ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ how is that a real fan
5. [+19, -1] Doubt Zico cares if they refund his gifts or not. Anyway, I think it's great that fans are waking up and getting back their money. Hopefully they stop being fans and put their mental health to better use.
Article: Zico and Seolhyun, the reason they have so much support is because they were 'careful'
Source: OSEN via Naver
1. [+333, -19] Eh? Who's supporting them? Just you alone, journalist? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
2. [+265, -14] As if anyone's supporting them... Seolhyun's getting terrorized all over her Instagram just like when she was going through her Ahn Joong Geun scandal
3. [+293, -37] Looking at the pictures, Seolhyun was alone getting off the taxi and getting on the taxi... Zico has a car, why doesn't he ever pick her up. Seolhyun must like him a lot more than he likes her.
4. [+258, -40] Nothing about them looked 'careful' to me. Anyone can tell that Seolhyun's a celebrity with the way she was dressed. She was never wearing any pants in all her outfits ㅎㅎ
5. [+80, -11] What were they careful about? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ She's already going in and out of his house dressed in short clothes just months into their relationship, that's being careful??
6. [+71, -3] I can already see FNC trying to handle this now that she's getting a ton of hate, I feel bad for them
7. [+50, -1] Support? Who's supporting them? FNC is already starting the media play ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+283, -4] A "close junior and senior" that goes in and out of his house ㅋㅋㅋㅋ one of the more creative official statements since the "visiting the sick" one ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
2. [+215, -8] They're a "close junior and senior" with benefits
3. [+212, -11] And Seolhyun's image gets thrown in the trash once again...
4. [+24, -1] Mmm... what this does to Seolhyun's image...... especially with pictures of her running in to his house while dressed like that
5. [+20, -0] Their agencies are honestly so dumb
6. [+20, -4] Seolhyun-ah, Zico said he's not dating you... you guys are just junior and senior ㅋㅋㅋ such a pathetic excuse for a man
7. [+14, -1] Seolhyun must really like Zico;;; but what is she going to do about her image now ㅠㅠ
8. [+4, -1] Seolhyun's statement was honest to her feeling about him whereas Zico's just a ba$tard... the pictures totally show that they were dating but poor Seolhyun got left to dry
1. [+614, -109] Can't believe Zico's dating a girl who doesn't even know Korean history when he himself has the Mugunghwa and King Sejong tattooed on himself
2. [+379, -40] Honestly of course your heart breaks when your bias is revealed to be dating. I wish fans would stop trying to act like they're cool about it... I honestly feel like suicide right now ㅜㅜㅜㅜ
3. [+350, -19] I always took Zico to be the type to like older women so I'm surprised he's dating Seolhyun ㅋㅋㅋ they do make quite the handsome couple though
4. [+241, -26] I honestly think Zico's fans are overhyping him. Sorry but he's gotten into a lot of scandals himself and his face is quite average, actually on the uglier end compared to other celebrities. Feels bad hearing that, right? So stop saying Zico can do better or whatever.
5. [+156, -17] I wonder if Seolhyun saw the King Sejong tattoo on Zico's arm and was like "oppa who is that?"
6. [+140, -16] From a third person's perspective, I don't think Zico can do better. He's been in a lot of scandals and his visuals are way lacking compared to hers. Sure his fans are obsessed with him so they're going to think he can do better but to the rest of the public, they only remember him as the guy with the Thai scandal who uses words like 'fagg*t'.
7. [+118, -21] Uhh, Seolhyun has a lot more to lose from this scandal than Zico. I feel bad for her.
8. [+116, -69] I do think it is quite goosebump inducing that Seolhyun cried at her showcase over her history controversy and then ran straight to Zico for their date right after ㅠㅠ
9. [+96, -5] Something about them just doesn't match
10. [+64, -1] Zico can go on all he wants about being addicted to work or loving his fans but celebrities are really nothing special when you see that they also enjoy having girls with hot bodies in and out of their homes ㅋㅋㅋ
Pann: Zico's disappointing as a man....
1. [+345, -22] I agree, Seolhyun already has so many antis but the way the article said that Zico didn't confirm they were dating is going to harm her image a ton... Now it looks like she's the only one who was obsessed with him by running into his house all the time. There's not one picture where Zico's driving her anywhere. I do think they're dating, it's just that Seolhyun likes him more.
2. [+307, -42] Honestly, aren't women tired of the girl in dating scandals always getting more hate than the boy? In every single idol dating scandal, it's always been the girl who gets the hate. What's even funnier is that it's us women who are hating on the girl idol ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
3. [+306, -60] I admit that Zico's got it all.. I'm sure he has some type of charm but I still think Seolhyun could do better. Imagine all of the men who want her right now. A woman should always choose relationships where she's loved and it doesn't seem like the case in this one. I feel bad for her and think she can do better.
4. [+183, -0] All of the pictures are only of Seolhyun going to see him... whereas Lee Min Ho tried so hard to keep Suzy out of attention by driving her around in his car and going out to pick up coffee by himself. That's real consideration, no?
5. [+165, -10] If they really are dating, I wish they'd break up. The way Zico's treating her is no way to be treating a girlfriend.
6. [+157, -3] Personally, it doesn't seem like Zico is deeply in love with her and all... sorry to Seolhyun but I think he's just with her for the sex.
7. [+156, -5] He's not just "bad", he's the worst boyfriend possible. Seolhyun confirmed their relationship and yet he denied it;;;; and she's the one getting all the hate like usual
8. [+151, -2] I don't normally like Seolhyun but I feel bad for her in this. There are already pictures of her going into his house in short dresses and he thinks he can deny it? If he's scared of his fans leaving him, then he shouldn't even be dating in the first place.
9. [+148, -1] Zico has so many cars, would it have killed him to go pick her up? He's making his girlfriend run around in taxis for him? And why's he so scared to confirm their relationship? He's already making bank and he knows that it's worse for her image if he doesn't... He can just cover her up and take her out for coffee dates.
10. [+140, -1] After seeing the pictures of Taeyang look at Min Hyo Rin like he's utterly in love with her and tying her shoe laces and all, fans never gave him any crap about him dating. Imagine if Dispatch's pictures of Seolhyun and Zico were of them looking lovingly at each other or going on simple dates outside at parks or cafes, fans would've obviously supported them. But the only pictures Dispatch has of their 5 month relationship is of Seolhyun running into Zico's house, and judging by what she's wearing, you can obviously tell what they were doing inside. That's no normal relationship.
11. [+115, -1] There's nothing "careful" or "safe" about going on dates at your house.. ㅋㅋㅋ Even if you're avoiding the paparazzi, getting caught together at a house is probably the biggest scandal you can get into. To make matters worse, Seolhyun was caught at his house multiple times ㅋㅋㅋ
12. [+109, -4] Even Dispatch admitted Lee Seung Gi and Yoona were a pretty couple... He'd pick her up and they'd go on a drive near the mountainside and he'd always take her home before midnight or 1 am. I'm sad they broke up, they matched well.
