Representatives for Nancy from the group Momoland and Q from The Boyz have expressed their bewilderment at the sudden dating rumors involving the two idol stars.

Suspicions about Q and Nancy supposedly enjoying a date over drinks were recently raised among members of an online community. Eyewitness accounts stating that there were others with Q and Nancy popped up along with a photo showing the two at a bar near Konkuk University in Seoul.

However, the rumors have proven to be false. Nancy and Q were joined by other people at the bar, and the two singers were not on a date but at a gathering among close friends. It appears as if the dating rumors developed after a sasaeng fan took a photo of Nancy and Q sitting side by side.  

Nancy’s agency, MLD Entertainment, released a statement on June 10 saying that “it was a gathering between friends” and that “the dating rumors are not true.” The agency has also stated that they will be taking firm action against excessive speculations.
