Momoland’s JooE has found herself in the midst of unexpected dating rumors. 

The rumors started with a picture circulating around an online community that showed JooE walking down the street while linking arms with a man. 

The singer’s label, MLD Entertainment, issued a response on the 6th which stated: “After checking with JooE, we’ve confirmed that the man in the picture is a longtime friend of JooE’s that had accompanied her while she was shopping for sound equipment. It has been determined that the picture that has been going around online was maliciously edited and spread intentionally.” 

They added, “Actions were not taken as JooE felt the situation wasn’t worth responding to. However, if our artist experiences emotional distress due to baseless rumors, we will file legal charges against the person who initially penned it, as well as against those who have written malicious comments.”

JooE and the other members of Momoland are currently getting ready to go abroad to take part in promotional activities.
