Love life and relationships
Seola hasn’t commented on any boys she might have dated since the launch of her career, and this is believed to be due to a dating ban her agency has put on all the WJSN girls. There are rumors circulating the internet that she and her high school sweetheart once dated for around two years before she decided to break-up because of her singing career, however, Seola hasn’t commented on this, although many of her fans have asked her about it.
She has talked about her ideal type of a man, and that he would have to earn enough money for both of them, give her the attention she needs, and be handsome.
