One of K-pop’s most lusted after bachelors is off the market. YG Entertainment have officially confirmed that Big Bang’s Taeyang and actress Min Hyo Rin have been secretly dating for two years.
After rumours of the couple’s longterm relationship surfaced earlier this week, a spokesman for the “Eyes, Nose, Lips” singer today, June 2, announced the couple are indeed seeing each other.
“It’s something to celebrate about,” says the YG spokesperson. “He’s never had [a girlfriend] before.”
A representative for Min, 29, was cagier, simply stating, “It’s a personal issue, so it’s difficult to say anything at the moment.”
As for rumours that the couple have been together since summer 2013, the YG rep says the company still “needs to check” the information. However a source tells IdolWow!, “They have known each other for years. They have been together for a long time.”

Eagle-eyed fans will have already spotted the couple — who are two years apart in age — together in one of Taeyang’s music videos. In June 2014, they shared a sexy kiss scene in his solo music video for “1AM”, where “The Grand Heist” star Min played a former lover.
Taeyang is currently filming KBS series, Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook.
