Love life and boyfriend

Kim hasn’t talked about any boys she might have dated in the past, and it is widely believed that she won’t be talking about any, as South Korean agencies don’t allow their rookie artists to be dating because of how it might affect the groups’ popularity. However, there are rumors circulating the internet that Kim has a crush on English singer Harry Styles, and that she would date him if she would only be given the opportunity.

There is another rumor circulating the internet claiming that Kim was once in a long term relationship with a boy who attended the same high school as she, and that the two were dating for nearly two years before Kim broke up with him because of the launch of her singing career – Kim hasn’t commented on this.
