“It is true that Lee is involved in a romantic relationship,” a source close to the singer told various Korean media outlets on the day the news broke.
“The two have known each other for around a year, but they have started dating only recently in the early part of this year.”
In regards to the photo showing the two celebrities together at Incheon International Airport, Lee’s side further explained that “a few of their acquaintances have also accompanied them on the vacation,” arguing that the two were not traveling alone.
The model also acknowledged their relationship through her talent agency, ESteem.
However, regarding the possibility of marriage in the future, the modeling company flatly denied the existence of any plans and said that the two are not yet at the stage in their relationship to discuss marriage.
Lee and Go became engulfed in the scandal after a photo of the two at the airport leaving for Los Angeles spread throughout the Internet.
