Nam Tae Hyun says he’s just friends with Ryeowon, Sulli, Son Dam Bi


In an interview, Nam Tae Hyun denied the recent dating rumors involving Jung RyeowonSon Dam Bi and Sulli

He said, “First of all, I’m close friends with Ryeowon. And Dam Bi is Ryeowon’s best friend. So I’m a close friend of Dam Bi as well.”

He added, “My personality makes it hard for me to talk to men. I get along with women better, so I have more female friends, which is probably why I get caught up in a lot of dating rumors. It’s because I’m really comfortable with them. I really wanted to explain the rumors, but people won’t believe me, so it was like, what’s the point.”

He also talked about his relationship with Sulli, a former member of f(x). He said, “As I’m a close friend of Sulli‘s acquaintance, we had meals together. So we’re very close, close enough to each friend chicken together.”

He continued, “I think the photo of her putting makeup on me was the origin (of the dating rumor). We did a photo shoot together once, and I didn’t call the makeup staff because their service was too expensive. Sulli said she’d do my makeup herself, and we’ve become close since then.”

Nam Tae Hyun claims that he is currently single. He said, “I’d like to be in a relationship. But no one shows interest in me because they think I have a girlfriend due to the dating rumors.”

But he says that music is his priority for now saying, “Although I do want to date, I don’t want to force myself to do it. I need to focus on my band and album right now. I can save dating for later.”

Nam Tae Hyun debuted as a member of WINNER in 2014, and he left the group in November of last year. Since then, he formed the band South Club.
