Jessica Openly Denies Rumors with Taecyeon
Jessica denied the rumors flying around about her relationship with 2PM’s Taecyeon.
She made an appearance with fellow Girls’ Generation members Taeyeon and Jessica on the November 9 broadcast of MBC’s Golden Fishery-Radio Star, which also featured Park Hae Mi and Im Tae Gyeong.
The MCs touched on the subject by asking Jessica, “Aren’t you busy meeting Ok Taecyeon?” The question was based on recent paparazzi photos showing Jessica and Taecyeon seemingly on a date.
At this Jessica said, “We’re just friends.” When asked again whether they weren’t in a casual relationship, somewhere between friends and lovers, she said firmly, “Not at all. We’re just friends.”
About the photos, which were taken in Japan, she said, “We just went out to get some drinks and it made it into the news. We thought we should just be more comfortable with each other since the news is out anyway, but [after the paparazzi photos], we just agreed that we shouldn’t meet altogether.”
So why are Jessica and Taecyeon seen together so often? Jessica answered, “Because I don’t have many friends, I just meet the few people I know. I guess that’s why we’re seen together often.”
Jessica and Taecyeon were rumored to be in a relationship after a photo was released in August showing the two in a fast food restaurant in Japan, followed by a photo of them in October enjoying brunch in a café in Apgujeong.
