A rumor of a relationship between SEVENTEEN Vernon and a stylist of boy group TXT is starting to gain ground.
On January 12th, speculations of a relationship between SEVENTEEN Vernon and a stylist of boy group TXT started to circulate on SNS. The rumor began after the aforementioned stylist answered “Yes” to the question “Are you dating anyone?”, at the same time posting an image of a cute teddy bear.
Immediately, keen-eyed netizens discovered that this teddy is similar to one carried by SEVENTEEN Vernon when he arrived at Incheon airport after an overseas schedule. This led to speculations that the SEVENTEEN member bought the teddy bear as a gift for his lover after finishing the North American leg of SEVENTEEN’s world tour.
At the same time, many people pointed out alleged “couple items” worn by SEVENTEEN Vernon and TXT’s stylist, such as caps and rings. Others even claimed that they spotted Vernon’s younger sister following the stylist on Instagram, adding topicality to the dating rumor.
On the other hand, the majority of netizens remain vigilant, believing that all of the “evidences” were mere coincidences. As of the moment, SEVENTEEN’s agency, Pledis Entertainment, is still maintaining their silence about Vernon’s dating rumor.
