Jung RyeoWon, born in 1981, and Nam TaeHyun, born in 1994, are making headlines as the historical couple to have 13 years difference in age with the woman being older.
Rumors of the two's relationship started circling early this year when netizens discovered signs of the two's love through each of the two's Instagrams.

Fans have been expressing mixed feelings about the breaking news as it follows only a few days after YG’s announcement of TaeHyun’s temporary hiatus from WINNER activities.
Jung RyeoWon's representative has spoken up to reveal that "Although the two are friends, they are not in a romantic relationship."
