K-pop star Park Gyu-ri, of much-missed girl band Kara, has confirmed that she is romantically involved with a wealthy business heir. But the 31-year-old has already ruled out an early marriage to the “chaebol scion” – a term used in Korea to describe the future inheritor of a large family-owned business conglomerate. Park’s boyfriend, surnamed Song, is the eldest grandson of Dongwon Construction's founder Song Seung-hun. He reportedly works as a curator at an art centre in Seoul. “Park met Song at an art exhibition,” said Park’s agency TheCNT Global said on October 1. “As they share art as a common interest, they developed good feelings toward each other and recently began dating.” Why are K-pop awards MAMA skipping Hong Kong this year? But the agency said it is too early to talk about marriage. A local media outlet reported earlier on the same day that Park and Song have been seeing each other since June. It claimed the pair had a date in September at an eatery in Seoul’s upmarket Gangnam-gu neighbourhood. Park debuted as a child actress in 1995 and began her singing career as a member of Kara in 2007. The group was propelled to stardom with hit songs including Mister , released in 2009, but disbanded in 2016. In August it was reported that Park signed with TheCNT Global to pursue a career in acting. Want more stories like this? Sign up here . Follow STYLE on Facebook , Instagram , YouTube and Twitter .
