Red Velvet’s bandmember Joy and R&B and hip-hop singer Crush are officially dating, their agencies confirmed. They have not been together for as long as most fans believe, though.
K-pop fans were pleasantly surprised when Joy and Crush’s relationship was confirmed by SM Entertainment and P Nation, their labels.
For starters, Joy is part of the South Korean girl group Red Velvet, which recently released an EP called “Queendom.” It is considered a comeback as their last album was released in 2019.

On the other hand, Crush is a South Korean R&B and hip-hop singer involved in the music industry since 2012. His first album, “Crush on You,” was released two years later, and he has been on K-pop fans’ radar ever since.
In June 2019, he made headlines after revealing he was leaving Amoeba Culture, the record label he worked with for six years, to set up his own agency with his manager.
Crush shared the news on Instagram and thanked the Amoeba Culture staff for everything they did together. He specifically thanked Dynamic Duo – also under the company’s management – for being his inspiration.
Coming back to Joy and Crush’s love story, they met in early 2020 when they collaborated on his song "Mayday," released that May. Although the duo hit it off right away, they only started dating “recently.”

As P Nation –Crush’s current label– revealed on August 23, they began their relationship after being close sunbae (senior) and hoobae (junior) and having shared interests in dogs.
Crush is reportedly Joy’s first boyfriend. She once revealed she never had the opportunity to date and pointed out that she would make a “great girlfriend.”
Speaking of K-pop stars, Seungri, a former member of the boy band Big Bang, made headlines earlier this month for being sentenced to three years behind bars due to his involvement in the Burning Sun nightclub scandal.
Seungri was ordered to pay $989,000 and faced multiple charges, including overseas gambling and prostitution. He left the band in 2019, shortly after news of his criminal activities spread all over the internet.
