[Rumor Mill] Infinite and Secret are dating?

With the confirmation of Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung's relationship last night, netizens are taking another look at the organization that spread rumors saying they were dating several months ago and trying to evaluate the truth behind some of their other rumors as well.

These are just rumors spread by the same people that predicted LBH and LMJ's relationship, so take them as what you will. When news of their relationship first broke out, nearly 90% of the best replies were talking about how they now believe in the 'Stock Market Exclusives', a gossip source for rumors on everything from the entertainment industry to the government.

Some say that it's controlled by reporters or government officials wanting to create headlines for their own benefits (hiding scandals, creating scandals, diverting attention, etc), but I don't know much more than that. Others claim it's spread by word of mouth from staff of the industry.

I do see their rumors come up in the news often but they use too much anonymity to make much use of it.

These rumors are CURRENT and mainly focused on idols. I will not go back for the old ones unless confirmed recently.


1. Famous actor 'A', who's notorious for not letting any co-star actress out of his grips, has been rumored to have messed with 'B'. Because of their vast age difference, even industry officials were initially suspicious when they heard about it, but 'A' did indeed manage to win over 'B'. As it turned out, 'B' was actually quite the player herself and they spent an "enjoyable night" together without any restrictions.

(a - Song Kang Ho, b - Shin Se Kyung)

2. The arrogance of actress 'I' is said to be able to reach the sky. She was recently chosen as a drama lead and has raised issues with the drama's title, reasoning that the drama is about her character's growth so it should include her character's name. She came up with 20 or so titles herself and texting them to all of the staff, which have all been promptly ignored. Industry officials feel that she should be grateful for even being considered an actress worthy of a leading role.

(i - Goo Hye Sun)

3. Girl group 'A' member 'B' and boy group 'C' member 'D' are currently dating.

The way they met is actually quite amusing, as they were intoduced to each other after the break up of member 'E' from group 'A' and member 'F' from group 'C'. E's relationship with F was said to have been a rollercoaster due to F's tendency to cheat, which was the cause for their break up. E was said to have spent many nights crying over the loss.

On the contrary, F started spreading rumors among idols about his relationship with E. Although E tried to get back at him, it never happened.

'B' and 'D' actually had no idea about the state of their relationship so when they started dating, they tried to include F and E in their dates.

(a - SECRET, c - INFINITE, Hyosung, Sunhwa, L, Sungjong - no one knows which one is b, e, f, d)

4. Top star 'A' is said to be enjoying scandalous activities since his rise to fame. After his concerts, he'll throw lavish after parties with his staff. After he gets drunk, he'll wave around a wad of cash and tell everyone that the person that strips the most will earn the money. The party then turns into a strip bar as everyone strips for the prize. Although A is loved for his innocent and handsome image, he's quite the player in the backroom.

(a - Jang Geun Suk)

5. Staff are feeling the stress due to the poor acting skills of actor 'E'. Because of his relationship to another famous celebrity 'E', F is on the smallscreen despite his poor acting skills. Not only that, but the industry also feels that he's not handsome enough to be on screen, let alone earn the roles he has played so far, so there is a lot of discord with his co-stars.

A manager of E's co-star mentioned, "At the film set, nobody treats E like an actor. Who would like someone who earned his role for being brothers with another celebrity and drops the quality of the drama with his poor acting?" Cue sighs of stress.

(e - Park Yoo Hwan, celebrity family - Park Yoochun)

Stars I left out: Yoo Se Yoon, Jang Shin Young and Kang Ji Sub, Ha Ji Won. The best replies are all just expressing shock over INFINITE and SECRET, as well as some claiming that there wouldn't be smoke without fire.

What do you mean? The others treat him bad or something? O_o

Yes? They're quite open about it too; they do it on camera all the time. Sunggyu is the ringleader (and often the only one doing it) but everybody else joins in sometimes, except for L. I can't recall him ever ragging on Sungjong like the others do. If anything, L seems to favour Sungjong.

I follow Infinite since 2011 and I swear that I've never realized of that, tbh. Could you give me some examples? Like videos and all. I've seen them trolling each other sometimes, but that's because they're close enough to joke with each other imo :/

I've been following them for maybe like, a year and half, maybe? Anyway, it kind of starts in Sesame Player (notably when they're cleaning their dorm) but it has definitely intensified in Ranking King.

I'm sure that they're close and everything, but the way that Sungjong gets treated by them (mainly Sunggyu) sometimes definitely rubs me the wrong way.

I've only watched 3 episodes of Sesame Player and I didn't see anything 'weird', so I'll try to watch the whole show and Ranking King to have a proper opinion.

yeah i've always felt this too. the cleaning episode, when they were doing birth of a family and always made sungjong clean the poop etc... made me have a soft spot for sungjong and always irked me, but also made me ship sunggyu/sungjong? idk but i think sunggyu and all of them do appreciate sungjong, just kinda bully him lol
i would tell myself it was bc of korea's whole age hierarchy thing and the maknae has to do the work or sth but honestly i never rly see that in other groups, anyway...
true that myungsoo never joins in tho, so i ship them (myungsoo/sungjong) as well haha

I've clocked that too! L usually watches, with this kind of "over it" look on his face, while other members are messing with Sungjong. I've never seen him participate, though I haven't seen everything. Ranking King, a bit of Sesame Player, and random interviews/bts stuff.

Idk how far you got in Sesame Player, but man, there were some really bad moments for Sungjong in there ;_;

You've seen almost everything that I've seen except that I've seen all of SP as well as You Are My Oppa. You should def check out YAMO if you haven't since it's pre-debut and just generally awesome. I also don't remember there being any bullying in it, so that's good.

Then again, even with that, I don't think I've seen ~everything~ either. What I have seen has def been more than enough for me to form an opinion on the matter though.

:P Yeah. You don't need to see everything to see enough to know something ain't right.
