boyfriend Bang Yongguk

how they met Hongbin tweeted a video of Raeyim soulfully singing part of Rain Sound which quickly spread around the website ; the two were formally introduced at Hyuk and Jongup’s graduation from Hanlim and regularly kept in contact, growing especially close during B.A.P’s lawsuit

time together 2014.12.18 - present [4years, 8 months]

status Considering themselves mutually exclusive since late 2014, the couple came out publicly on 2018.08.24 ; Raeyim moved in with Yongguk soon before his military enlistment to take care of his home and Tigger


  • Despite being public, their relationship is quite private as Yongguk is a private person and Raeyim respects him
  • Yongguk produced and composed 'Apagando las estrellas' to help Raeyim remember her boyfriend and other suicide victims
  • Raeyim has taken classes on panic disorders and how to help someone cope with anxiety attacks for Yongguk's sake
  • Yongguk thinks he is sneaky with his photography but Raeyim knows when he is taking pictures (and plays along)
