ASTRO Rocky Shares Dating Status With Park Bo Yeon– But Actress Denies It
On October 31, ASTRO Rocky and actress Park Bo Yeon confused fans after releasing their respective positions about their dating rumor.

As the rumor ignited, Park Bo Yeon’s agency Management KOO said:
“We fact-checked with our actress about the rumors and she said [Rocky] is just a good colleague she met after working together for ‘Find Me If You Can.”
Soon after, however, Rocky’s side acknowledged his romantic relationship with Park Bo Yeon. Fantagio released an official statement, saying:
“As mentioned by the media, Rocky and actress Park Bo Yeon are currently on the stage of getting to know each other with positive feelings.
…After spending time as colleagues, they recently developed feelings for each other.”
ASTRO Rocky Faces Embarrassment After Park Bo Yeon Denies Dating Him
While a lot of fans, especially AROHAs (ASTRO fandom), congratulated the birth of a new couple as per Fantagio’s confirmation, people felt embarrassed for Rocky after being denied by said girlfriend.
- “She just said you’re not her boyfriend haha’
- “He admitted it alone.”
- “To be honest, I feel sorry for you.”
- “If you are going to release a statement, talk with the other agency first.”
- “Oh my, didn’t the girl deny it first? What is this?”
The problem is that Park Bo Yeon and Rocky took different positions – the former drawing a line that the male idol is only a good colleague while the latter admitted dating her.

People then claimed that one side obviously released a false position. If it is Park Bo Yeon, it will hurt Rocky’s feelings after being denied, regardless of whether she did it to protect the idol or keep it private.
Fans also emphasized that if they want to keep it a secret, Rocky would have denied the rumor as well.
If Rocky’s side released the wrong statement, fans implied that this will still hurt Rocky even more, as that would mean he’s in a relationship alone, or that he thought his relationship with the actress is already more than a colleague.

Others criticized both agencies for not matching their official positions, which caused the conflict.
With Rocky acknowledging rumors of a romantic relationship, attention is being paid to whether Park Bo Yeon will reverse her position or come up with an explanation.
