Everyone thought Gyuri (KARA)’s ex-boyfriend was only 7 years younger than her.
Gyuri, a former member of the 2nd generation’s famous girl group KARA, used to date her conglomerate boyfriend for 2 years, from 2019 to 2021. According to the media, the reason why the couple parted was due to their busy schedule. However, netizens suspected that the KARA leader broke up with her boyfriend after he was caught causing a hit-and-run accident while being in the same car with a different woman.
At the time their relationship was publicized, Song Ja Ho was known to be born in 1995, which meant he was 7 years younger than Gyuri. However, today (Jan 11th), netizens are shocked after Song edited his real age. Turns out he was born in 2000, which means he is 12 years younger than his ex-girlfriend.
Explaining the reason for lying about his age, Song Ja Ho said it is because Koreans often do not take young people seriously. At that time he was in charge of a major project, so he claimed he was older to increase credibility. He announced his real age now to run for additional elections at Seocho District Council, Seoul.
This information shocked netizens and immediately started trending 1st place on Naver. Until now, Gyuri is thought to be only 7 years older than her boyfriend, but their age difference turns out to be 12. Previously, in October 2019, netizens were surprised when Gyuri was revealed to be dating Song Ja Ho – the eldest grandson of Song Seung Hun, former chairman of the powerful Dongwon Construction Industries. Because this young chaebol grandson looks older than his age, many netizens find it shocking that he was born in 2000 and only turns 22 years old this year.
