For popular idol girl group Girls’ Generation, 2015 was a very successful year in K-pop. Initiating their success with summertime hit track “PARTY,” Taeyeon, Tiffany, Sunny, Yuri, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Yoona, and Seohyun continued with the release of their fifth Korean studio album Lion Heart. By the end of the year, Girls’ Generation was on top of the world as they partook in their fourth Asia tour known as Girls’ Generation Phantasia, which is still going on at this moment. Nevertheless, it was very important for Girls’ Generation to be successful in 2015 because it tested if they could continue on without its “first member,” Jessica Jung. Needless to say, Girls’ Generation succeeded.
Success, however, can’t extend to Girls’ Generation’s members in their personal lives, especially when it comes to love and dating. Over the course of two years starting in 2014, each Girls’ Generation member in a relationship ended it for one reason or another. These includes Hyoyeon and author and CEO Kim Joon Hyung; Tiffany and Nichkhun of 2PM; Yoona and singer-actor Lee Seung Gi; Taeyeon and Baekhyun of EXO; and Yuri and baseball player Oh Seung Hwan. Sooyoung, who is with actor Jung Kyung Ho, did not fall to the curse her five fellow group members did. As for Sunny and Seohyun, they have never been in a confirmed relationship.

Summarized, Girls’ Generation experienced a lost love curse since 2014. However, is that curse now lifting? Rumor has it that Tiffany is dating Korean rapper GRAY. Many Korean news outlets, like Sports Seoul and DT, have reported on said rumors, but what is the truth?
Multiples representatives in the music industry claim that Tiffany and Gray have been growing in a romantic relationship together over the past three months. According to AllKpop, the two first met while Tiffany worked with Cha Cha Malone on her upcoming solo album. As most K-pop fans know, Malone is a producer for the music label AOMG, the same one GRAY is signed to. It would be understandable if they ran into each other, and reportedly that is how their relationship began. Those around them seemed to notice it too.
“I often saw the two of them sharing thoughts on music. Like an ordinary couple in their twenties, they even brought on the envy of the people around them by enjoying dates.”
Not only that, but some have claimed both Tiffany and GRAY are not careful in keeping their relationship secret. Apparently, they are not conscious of who sees them enjoying each other’s company.
“They are not conscious of the attention from their surroundings as they showcase their affection towards each other. It seems like they’re dating prettily and with no shame. Their relationship is widely known among the rappers, to tell the truth.”
Though testimonies of eyewitnesses might be valid, it is simply mere gossip until either Tiffany, GRAY, or their agencies confirm the relationship. According to Soompi, the rumors of Tiffany and GRAY dating have already been responded to by both of their agencies. Though AOMG said they are in the midst of confirming whether the rumors are true or not, SM Entertainment say Tiffany and GRAY are simply close, citing Tiffany’s easygoing personality and allowance of skinship because she originally lived in the United States.
