BIGBANG's Taeyang and actress Min Hyo Rin are officially dating, YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk confirming the relationship with the following statement.
"I congratulate Taeyang's relationship. There's been word that Taeyang is a 'motae solo' (never having dated). It was even to the point that fans worried for him... I learned about their relationship through his manager. I don't think it's something to worry about, but rather something to congratulate him about. I wasn't able to talk in detail with him due to filming, but I think of it in a positive light."
According to Ilgan Sports, an aquaitance also commented, "The two met due to Min Hyo Rin's appearance on Taeyang's '1 AM' music video. Although it was their first meeting, they filmed well even with risque skinship and kiss scenes. After the filming, they shared a meal together and their meeting began. Soon after the MV filming, they started dating. It was fast."
Media outlet 'The Fact' also released some photos of the two dates. Apparently they usually took place at Taeyang's home in Hannam-dong or around the Gangnam area.
