The rumor mill is rolling for two members of two popular groups. The persons in question are TVXQ’s Xiah (22) and Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon (20), who are being rumored to be an item because of video captures of them holding hands after TVXQ and Girls’ Generation’s joint performance in the recently concluded “2008 Korean Music Festival” that was held in Los Angeles.
Netizens have different takes on the matter. One said that she felt betrayed and another was in disbelief that the two held hands in front of fans. A certain Netizen did not antagonize the situation and said, “It’s only natural for a young man and woman to like the opposite sex.”
Another Netizen explained that the gesture was just a form of encouragement between a senior and junior.
