Besides the scandal of his brother who asked the fans to comply certain request, Im Young-min was also alleged to have a girlfriend before his participation in Produce 101. In Pann forum, the post of Youngmin’s girlfriend surfaced as her Instagram account has been found by the fans. It was stated that Youngmin and his supposed-to-be girlfriend did lovestagram, went to Japan together after he shot the PR video for Produce 101, and spent Youngmin’s Christmas birthday together. What is more shocking is that the girl exposed that she and Youngmin have slept together by taking photos of them sleeping and waking up, a private matter that should not be revealed so easily.
The fans also suspected that during the first episode of Produce 101, Youngmin wore his couple ring.
The dating scandal made Youngmin’s fans disappointed. They understand that the aspiring idol must have dated at some point of his life but they are already upset by his attention-seeking girlfriend, ‘I am not even his fan but as soon as I saw how many spelling mistakes his girlfriend makes, I am completely turned off… Imagine how the other kids want it so bad, but he is busy being obvious about it, it is such a disappointment… He does not look like he is earnest’. In another post, a forum member created a list of why Youngmin should not debut, reasoning that his relationship might affect the other members to do the same, the tribute sent to him might be sent to his girlfriend and that whenever he said something, he might direct it to his girlfriend.
