Is Taeyeon single or dating?
Taeyeon is single, but she used to date Baekhyun from Exo. And there were rumors of her dating Ravi from VIXX a few years ago. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their girlfriend, but she is either a very private person, or being a Kpop artist is not that easy.
When asked about her type she states that she doesn’t like guys with long hair, but also:
“Wouldn’t the most basic factor be the guy’s pretty smile? To make their smile shine, it would be nice to have a guy with a clear white skin and red lips. I wish their style would look natural no matter the location or time.“
