Rumored Girlfriend

Onew is said to be dating with Jung-Ah, an ex-member of the girl group AFTER SCHOOL.

In 2010, Onew said that his ideal type of woman was Jungah in a TV variety show.

Three years later, they were rumored to be dating. They were seen enjoying dinner at a restaurant for about an hour, then were gone somewhere on Jungah’s car and got caught by a paparazzi that took photos of them.

Both say that they are just friends, but their fans think otherwise. For example, they officially say they are in love with ‘someone else’. They also enjoy wearing matching hoodies.

Recently, Jung-Ah posted pictures of her favorite doll named ‘Jin-ki’ (Onew’s real name) on her SNS site with the comments like, “I’m going to sleep with Jin-ki.”

In 2013, Jung-Ah cleared up the rumors saying that Onew is like a little brother to her.

Luna, a member of the girl group f(x), was said to be dating with Onew. They were so close that they often sang duets in music programs.

Onew said that Luna was one of his ideal type of women, which caused many people to think that they were dating.

Moreover, at the SM Entertainment concert they co-starred, many people saw Onew and Luna holding hands while singing.

At that time Onew had less rumors about his romantic affairs compared to other members, which gave some credibility to the relationship between the two.

His Ideal type of woman

When asked about his ideal type of woman in a variety show with other SHINee members, Onew answered as follows; “My ideal type of woman is someone who looks good in anything. In short, someone who I think looks attractive whatever she wears”. 

Also, he said that he likes a woman who looks like a ‘noodle’, which made the audience burst into laughter. He also likes girls with pretty hands and with a nice voice.

In the past he mentioned SNSD‘s Yoona and After School’s Jungah as his ideal type.

He said that he can forgive his girlfriend up to three times if she cheats on him and that he doesn’t care if she drinks or smokes.

Views on Marriage

Onew doesn’t seem to be interested in marriage for now, but he mentioned about his ideal marriage partner in an magazine interview in the past.

He said, ” My ideal partner is someone who has a passion for music just like me. It would be better if she can sing with me. I also admire people who have talents or abilities that I don’t have, so I hope that my future spouse will be such a person and help me grow as an entertainer.”

However, Onew has once said that if he could propose to his girl, he wants to do it in a formal way.

His Ideal Dating Situation

Onew mentioned his ideal situation of dating when he appeared in a TV variety show. He said, “I want to walk with my girlfriend holding hands on a busy street.

Now I’m too busy to do such a thing, so I’ve longed for that dating situation.”

Onew also said that he’d like to enjoy delicious meals during a date. 

He especially loves meat, so his favorite place for dating must be a ‘bulgogi’ restaurant(a Korean barbeque restaurant)!

Onew said that he would like to sing for his lover while playing the piano.

Fans’ opinions on his lovers

Onew’s fans have considerably negative thoughts about his love life and Jung-Ah.

Most of the South Korean netizens refused to believe that he was actually dating Jung-Ah, and repeatedly commented that they were probably just friends.

The most cynical ones even commented on how Jung-Ah was a “plastic-surgery beauty” and on the singer’s poor tastes.

Many fans thought of Jung-Ah’s tweets as an insult, too.
