Infinite member L’s agency Woolim Entertainment confirmed that there was a relationship between L and Kim Doyeon on their official website on the 26th.
A representative from the agency said “During September, when the relationship was first reported, we knew that they had been meeting for about four months.”
The representative also said “L confirmed that he was meeting Kim Doyeon but the agency did not confirm the relationship in order to protect the artist” and “We sincerely apologize about that.”
Finally, the representative said “We know that the two have not been able to meet since September due to public scrutiny and also the world tour and that they have become estranged” and “We do not want L, Kim Doyeon, or the fans to be hurt anymore due to this.”
Kim Doyeon previously wrote on her Twitter “When the rumors spread I did not say anything due to the agency’s (L’s agency) request but I cannot just look at the personal attacks anymore” and shared her personal thoughts.
This was Kim Doyeon confirming that she had dated L.
Netizens wrote “Why is Infinite’s agency like that?”, “It is not bad to date”, “Our country needs to change how they view dating” and “They ended badly.”
