Love life and girlfriend
Kevin hasn’t mentioned any girls he might have dated since he debuted with The Boyz, and this is believed by many to be because his agency has put a dating ban on him as well as his friends from The Boyz, because of how relationships might affect the group’s popularity.
There have been rumors on the internet claiming that Kevin was seen spending time with a mysterious girl at a café in Seoul, but he hasn’t commented on this, neither has his agency – proving that he is indeed currently seeing someone would most likely mean his departure from the group.
There are also rumors claiming that he was once in a long-term relationship while he was attending high school, and that the two split after he began working on his singing career. According to these rumors, he broke up shortly after debuting with The Boyz, but there are some people who believe that he has continued to secretly date the same girl.
