    Let this people LIVE for once! Let them do what all of us do!! Hope his annoying fangirls won´t ruin their relationship like they did with JongHyun and SSK :/

    “…there were rumors floating around sometime last year of Jungah frequenting SHINee’s dressing room at music show recordings”

    OK, I NEED TO SAY THIS. These rumors started from people (After School fans actually) on my twitter list. It was a [CONFIRMED] joke but it got really out of hand since it was about the same time they would flirt on twitter. Now everyone thinks it’s fact but there’s no truth to it whatsoever.

  • tinkypinky4

    im kinda shocked because its onew but then again itS ONEW i mean who could resist! i just dont want him to get hurt and cry like jonghyun did with shin se kyung…

    • Gaya_SB

      why 4 just give him ALL THE POINTS

  • xchoccies

    Honestly, I wasn’t surprised by this at all. I knew they were close and even Jungah revealed in some interview that a guy six years younger asked her out and the first person I could think of was Onew. If I’m not wrong some said she was the Jungah in his Thanks to. True or not, whatever it is, it’s their life. Personally I’m loving these outing of dating idols (me and my fangirl pairings). At least there’s a smidgen of normalcy in their hectic lives.

    But… there goes my OnSica heart hahaha.

  • itsmysunshine

    Aghh rest in peace my OnYeon heart ;~;

    But I am happy if this is true. I was kinda suspecting that Jungah was/is going out with a younger idol (which I thought is Thunder), and Onew has been saying that his ideal type is Jungah.

    Anyway, let the idols date, they deserve some happines.

    I am enjoying this very much actually! Onew’s alway been my bias as soon as i got into kpop and I just love that he’s “breaking free” of his set image! In the back of my mind I had always seen him as some sort of a badass as soon as i saw his pre-debut photo and i love that he’s showing this side of him because he always seemed restrained by his image to the point that it started looking fake… My point? I AM ABSOLUTELY ELATED MY THIS!!!

    oh and i really don’t think this is going to affect him much…I think they’ve reached that level…sorta..

  • momo

    I am very happy for onew… I am… however I cant help but say my fan girl heart hurts a bit. However! the’s 6 years older than him!! as a noona fan I find that very encouraging. haha.

  • leadaegyu

    fangirls can keep denying this but they’re totally and obviously dating!

    “Just close friends.”

    …Oh baby you… got what I neeeed… but you say he’s just a friend…. and you say he’s just a friend…

    I think its great to be honest, its about time idols were allowed to be themselves for a change. As for the e-cigarette (if it is one) – would netizens rather he was smoking a real one? most e-cigarette smokers I know are trying to quit smoking and surely people should be happy he is taking care of himself and his voice?

  • ShineeWorld52911

    If they’re really together then I’m happy for them. I understand that some on-hos (yes i call his worse than crazy, psychotic fans on-hos) will be butt hurt and want to rip this bitch to pieces, but he’s grown and needs a cuddle buddy.

  • kiimmiieee

    Could be a vaporizer? I think you hold it like that since there is a button you need to push.

  • Nabeela

    Dude honestly. Jung Ah is too flawless to hate on. Onew should consider himself lucky.

    • Gaya_SB

      Pretty sure he does :) They’re so cute!

  • 2SHINee1

    T_T i’m so happy for him!!
    honestly i spazzed out when i saw this news in the morning!!
    just saying but as a hardcore Shawol i would love to see all the members of SHINee be happy with a girlfriend!!

    all the Onew news around lately….i’m enjoying it so much!!!

    *goes to watch him push a bottle cap into its bottle for the thousandth time*

  • Brooklyn

    I’m actually enjoying all this too! It’s kind of nice to see a K-pop idol actually living their life, getting to date, having fun, etc. I know some people may be judging him for the smoking/ middle finger thing, but I honestly cannot. I know TONS of people that I love and respect that do stuff that is way worse. Even if I don’t agree with their choices, I still love them as a person. Onew is probably a great guy, and even if he makes “mistakes”, he’s probably still awesome. I’m glad that he is getting some dating time, or at least friendship time haha. That’s also a good point that it’s possibly not even an electronic cigarette. We don’t know the whole story so we should just let Onew and Jungah be. I wish them the best. :)

  • MisOpparsSonMejoresQueTu

    Lee Joon is crying wherever he is.

  • http://twitter.com/NyNy_x NyNy ♛ ナイナイ

    Happy as hell if they are together. I support it. I could ship it.

  • http://twitter.com/mae_1003 Issah Mae

    I was not surprised by this since Onew stated a long time ago that JungAh was his ideal type. He’s living the reality he wanted.. :))

    • Bstar5

      It’s funny that Jonghyun said SSK was his ideal type and they wound up dating and now the same thing has happened for Onew.

      • http://twitter.com/mae_1003 Issah Mae

        tbh i ship SSK and Jonghyun before until they stopped dating.. :(( poor him, he was living the reality he wanted until it was over…

  • maldita

    I am just glad that Onew seems to actually have a life outside the idol world. Thank God for that. I was NOT surprised when this came out because Onew and JungAh relatively spam my Twitter feed and I always thought it was a bit fishy they were Tweeting each other.

    Obviously, SM will never confirm another of its artists’ relationships after the whole Jonghyun/Sekyung debacle, so either way, I’m happy for Onew and JungAh if it’s true. Besides, Onew seems to be a lot more carefree and happy these days compared to a couple of years ago. It’s affected the group as well. SHINee seems to be more carefree and loose with each other, so yay! Happy leader, happy group.

  • http://twitter.com/LulcKathy kat

    Well JungAh said in a show before that she likes younger boys, and Onew likes noonas, so why not. XD

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001430085442 Nilly I’ly

    sigh, they need life too. im happy for onew. yay!

  • shannie4888

    Onew is getting it it. I can’t be mad at him. Why should he be famous, good-looking, rich, and have to be alone? Obviously he doesn’t think he should and neither do I. Jung Ah put her magic on him and he obviously reciprocated. I love when I find out idols are dating. I’m always so happy for them. Obviously being an idol can be tiring, stressful, and overwhelming, so whenever I find out that idols are in a relationship, I just feel happy that they have someone they can share their feelings with, not to mention get some much needed love and affection.

    Pledis should have just said that he’s in a relationship with Jung Ah because now they’re going to have to be extra careful or possibly end their relationship. When Tabloids revealed Junhyung and Hara’s relationship, BEAST and DSP just owned up to it and most (not ALL) of the response was positive. Maybe Pledis didn’t want to do that because recently Onew has been getting into a few scandals and they’re scared it would affect Jung Ah’s image. Either way, I’m happy for them and I hope the hype dies down, so they can just get on with their lives.

  • Streby

    I like that he’s living the life not caring about butthurt fangirls, whether he’s dating Jungah or not is not even of import to me.

  • http://twitter.com/ciararad Ciara

    I am! Aha. I’ve seen some stories and these “fans” are getting ridiculous. Not all of course, just some. Honestly, Onew is a grown man. He can do whatever the hell he wants. I wish fans would understand, you don’t / can’t control his, or any other star for that matter, life. I love that the fanbase for Korean stars is supportive, but being supportive and suffocating are two different things. Digging up tweets from a year or more ago? Really though?! Get yo life boo.

    And Jungah? Get it girl! ;D

  • http://twitter.com/mrshobbes Alexis Aragona

    LOL, I’ll be honest, I was so shocked when I first read about all these things. The finger-flipping, the “scandalous” cap (whatEVER *rolleyes*), the dating, the e-cigarette. But now I’m kinda tickled by the whole thing. Does Onew finally feel comfortable enough to truly be who he’s always been? His uber-polite, nice, sweet, smiley image is STILL amazing (he is my absolute favorite Kpop idol). But to see all these other things? He is now waaaaaay more interesting to me!

    I remember being really worried about him during Sherlock promotions in that he seemed more withdrawn and less animated compared to previous years. I’d read rumors of people saying it wouldn’t be long until Onew leaves the idol life, etc. Later in 2012 and until now I perceive him to be more animated and more engaging with his other members. It makes my noona fangirl heart happy. As for everything else, with the exception of the finger-flipping (which I was like GAH! stupid move on your part even if you were just having laughs with your members), everything that’s happened was during his downtime, off-work hours. So I say, go ahead, enjoy what floats your boat, as long as you’re not destroying yourself or the world around you. :) (I may be wrong, but hopefully an e-cigarette won’t ruin a voice?)

  • OboyM

    That thing is an electronic cigar, got one for meself and to tell you honestly they say it’s healthy, no lung cancer whatsoever just constipation, it’s like puffing thin air.

  • WorthInClay

    Yay! Someone in Shinee is finally having a life of his own outside of work!

  • http://twitter.com/PhanTheHotness Jenny

    i am quite enjoying it! go onew!!

    • hapacalgirl

      I know right?! I always feel like his squeaky clean idol image is so forced on him and not natural, so its great to see pieces of his natural personality come out. I was happy to see him flip the middle finger at his bandmate because lets be real, we have all done that.

  • hapacalgirl

    They could be friends, but I dunno the hanging out at night, the matchy matchy attire screams dating to me. I hope they are dating, they are both adults and its always great to hear idols having some sort of normalcy outside their idol life. I am younger than JungAh and wouldnt date younger but go get it girl do your thang. As for Onew, claps for snagging the awesomeness that is JungAh, hope you treat her right.

  • Ditu3ka

    “Onew! Dating! Smoking! Flipping off Jonghyun!”

    Perfectly fine with me (ok, he probably shouldn´t smoke but he´s an adult to make his own decisions).

  • ajj

    I’m worried about Onew, he’s been into too much scandals lately and with all the hate coming his way I hope he’s fine. And oh he really do like noonas, I’m happy.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dim.tso Dim Tso

    Good for him. That’s a pretty hot chick. She’s older too? All the better.

  • http://www.facebook.com/persia.ferguson Persia Ferguson

    He’s such a rebel, lol. Between all the Onew “scandals” and seeing Taemin drop the f-bomb during a Korn cover, go skydiving and get tipsy, and get cozy on screen with the fabulous BoA (I don’t know who to ship her with now, him or Yunho…), I’d say the cutie boy SHINee members are definitely starting to come out of their shells. Good for you guys!

  • aridnie

    I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to my reaction towards the scandal. If it was any other idol, I’d be happy for them and poopooing the fans who diss the couple and don’t support it. But this made me really upset. Onew is my ultimate bias and (warning: overreaction) I did cry when I heard the news. The smoking thing was just ridiculous but him dating a noona six years older than him? i was really sad. You can call it jealousy or immature, but I really hope it isn’t true. I didn’t mind him pulling out the middle finger either… I do it all the time. But I felt a little betrayed as his fan, which I know is totally irrational. Well, there wasn’t really a point to this post but there you go.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joe.antara Joe Antara

    I am with you too…I mean common…this tells us that even they are celebrities they would like to have a normal life too…and Onew is 23…its ok if he is dating someone…I don’t think anything wrong with that…just imagine hypothetically if he wasn’t an idol…would anybody given a damn about it??? So just let the poor guy enjoy his time…And there is a fair chance that he was just hanging out with her…/ peace onew…carry on…:)

  • Butter Bacon

    That is an ecig. Holding an ecig is way different from how you hold a cigarette. And the vapor? It comes straight out of your mouth if you even so much as open your mouth a little.

  • MamaWack

    I say the more idols dating the better. I mean they are humans and they are young and attractive so go ahead guys. I was wanted more idol relationship, I hate how fans think that they need to control their idol lives

  • Opal

    I have to say… I am LOVING this. Onew is being awesome: flipping Jjong off and smoking and dating and in general being the opposite of the squeaky-clean image hoisted upon him by SM.

    I love his independent streak, always have. (About the smoking, I don’t think he would because it’s bad for the voice)

    If HE is happy, I am ecstatic. I love Jinki to bits and if Jungah is helping him be a happier person then…

    I SHIP IT.
