Infinite pretty boy L has found himself right in the middle of a dating scandal. Photos of the idol, 21, and a mystery girl at a supermarket lit up online message boards earlier today.

They were propelled by an alleged hidden message by model-turned-actress Kim Do Yeon, who appeared to be wearing clothes and an Hermes "Kelly Double Tour" bracelet belonging to the "Destiny" singer.

Shortly after suspicions arose, Kim -- who's often called 'the chocolate model' because of her love of the candy on tvN drama Martian Virus -- tweeted an endearing note to a friend that fans believed contained the hidden message "L, I miss you, Myung Soo" hidden amongst the characters. (Kim Myung Soo is the Infinite singer's birth name).

"I'm just speaking to a friend," Kim, also 21, quickly wrote.

Today, Infinite's agency, Woollim Entertainment responded to the rumors with a statement, reading: "The two met through a mutual friend and are good friends with each other. We checked personally with L in the midst of concert preparations. He said they're not dating. Regarding the shopping picture, we're not even sure if it's even L or not."

For some, the explanation was satisfactory, but the news has also resulted in others temporarily closing down. Earlier today, the "Focus L" fancafe dramatically wrote: "That one moment when the star in the sky becomes a shooting star and falls down. Hope you take a moment to realize what kind of an existence you are."
