Love life and relationships
Gahyeon doesn’t normally talk about her love life, and this is believed to be because her agency doesn’t allow her or other Dreamcatcher members to date, because of how this might lose the group many fans and cause controversy. However, she has talked about her ideal type of a man, stating that she doesn’t have a specific type in mind, but is looking for someone who has a beautiful smile, is funny and often tell jokes. The boy/man should also have a good voice, meaning a strong male voice which could be soft while he’s talking to her.
There are rumors circulating the internet that Gahyeon was in a relationship with a boy while she was attending high school, and that they were together for two years before splitting ways for unknown reasons.
