8 times celebrity “love rivals” share the same frame: from Jennie – Nana to Park Shin Hye – IU 

Little people know that female celebrities like BLACKPINK Jennie – Nana Komatsu, Park Shin Hye – IU, Yang Mi – Qin Lan, etc… dated the same male celebrity. 

The old and new lovers of male celebrities are often considered “love rivals” in the public eyes, though they never compete for anything. As a result, many people find it exciting when female celebrities who date the same man have encounters, and BLACKPINK Jennie – Nana Komatsu, Park Shin Hye – IU, Yang Mi – Qin Lan, etc… have all experienced this. 

Jennie (BLACKPINK) – Nana Komatsu

Both BLACKPINK Jennie and Nana Komatsu were alleged girlfriends of BIGBANG leader G-Dragon. In 2018, the two gorgeous female celebrities met in an international event, and interacted closely as if they have always been friends. 

On the other hand, Nana Komatsu was reportedly in a relationship with G-Dragon up until 2018, while in 2021, Dispatch claimed that Jennie and G-Dragon were dating. As a result, when the two meet, they immediately become the talk of town, with G-Dragon constantly being mentioned by netizens.

Lee Da Hae and Park Han Byul attended an event of Konkuk University in 2009. It was known that actor Lee Min Ki was also among the participants. 

Back in 2009, Park Han Byul was in a relationship with famous singer Se7en. However, they broke up in 2014, after Se7en was discovered to have gone to “adult massage rooms” when he was still in the military. 

Then, 2 years later, Se7en and Lee Da Hae announced their relationship, and Lee Da Hae and Park Han Byul’s appearance together once again drew attention.

By 2016, Se7en announced that he was dating Lee Da Hae. At first, the two’s relationship faced a lot of criticism due to Se7en’s scandal, but public ire has eased over time. 

Fan Bingbing – Zhang Xinyu

To the public, Fan Bingbing and Zhang Xinyu have always boasted a rocky relationship, having both dated Chinese actor Li Chen. However, back in 2014, they worked together on the set of “The Empress of China” and had a decent friendship, even posting photos together. 

At the time the aforementioned photos were released, Zhang Xinyu already broke up with Li Chen, while Fan Bingbing has yet revealed her relationship with the male actor. It was only until a year later did the couple admit to dating. 

Unfortunately, it seems that Fan Bingbing and Zhang Xinyu’s friendship have soured after the dating announcement. They were regarded as “water and fire” by netizens, and often indirectly mentioned each other in a not-so-positive light.
