On August 4, Dispatch reported that TWICE‘s Jihyo and Kang Daniel are dating. According to Dispatch, the two began dating at the beginning of 2019 and would often meet at Kang Daniel’s home in Hannam-dong.
While the two would meet at Kang Daniel’s home for privacy, the location has sparked interest for another reason. One that has caught a lot of attention from EXO-Ls in particular and has caused EXO‘s Baekhyun to trend ever since the dating news broke!
Kang Daniel’s place in Hannam-dong is part of a luxury apartment complex known as UN Village. The apartment complex should sound familiar as it’s the name of Baekhyun’s title track from his recently released solo album!
Additionally, Baekhyun’s “UN Village” describe UN Village in Hannam-dong as the perfect date night spot with lyrics like “Looking at the moon from this hill, you and me. UN Village hill, side by side looking at the moon. You and me relax and chilling.”
Which may be why as soon as the dating news broke, Baekhyun and his song “UN Village” quickly began trending on music sites like Melon as well as on social platforms like Twitter!
