SM Entertainment has confirmed that SNSD’s Yuri is in a relationship with baseball player Oh Seung Hwan.
The label said, “They met each other at the end of last month at a meeting with mutual friends. They’re getting to know each other and like each other.“
To be honest, I had kind of forgotten that Yuri wasn’t in a confirmed relationship (it’s not like she’s the first, second, third, fourth, or fifth member to have a relationship aired out in the media within the past few years). At least Yuri bagged herself an athlete which will (hopefully) allow her to avoid the netizen crazy that would have befallen her if she dated someone from, say, EXO.
Plus, they look cute together! Hell, the two of them probably play baseball together in some literal field of pearly dreams. Unlike some of her peers, Yuri has demonstrated a killer pitching motion in the past.
Basically, wake me from my stupor when Seo-bot finishes building her perfect mate in whatever laboratory she has it stored in.
