With the female idol trainee show, “Youth With You 2020” (青春有你2), rumored to debut this month, netizens have begun digging up the deets on its trainees. Hot favorite trainee, Snow Kong (孔雪儿), was the topic of discussion these past few days as she was involved in two dating rumors with Victor Ma (马伯骞), who won second place on the first season of the male singing competition, “The Coming One” and UNINE member, Jia Yi (嘉羿).
Snow Kong is one of the hot favorites amongst netizens as she was a JYP trainee from 2012 to 2015. After leaving the Korean entertainment company, she debuted as a member of the group “Lady Bees” in 2016 after winning the competition of the same name.

The rumors first started with Victor Ma. According to netizens, Snow Kong and Victor Ma were rumored to have traveled to Japan together last April. It’s reported the two were dating for a long time already. Netizens found the pictures posted had similar backgrounds. They reportedly met each other through Zhou Zhennan at the end of 2017/early 2018. Neither parties have addressed the rumors.
As for UNINE’s Jia Yi, he was added into the mix over an alleged video of him eating with Snow Kong. However, the identities of the video cannot be confirmed. Some netizens say the girl doesn’t look like Snow Kong, while some say the guy doesn’t look like Jia Yi.
Netizens also claim Jia Yi’s background picture on his Weibo account was secretly spelling out Snow Kong’s Chinese name, Kong Xue’er. Her last name Kong, is a homonym for dragon, while her first name means snow, Xue. Netizens deciphered the dinosaur character, which is pronounced as “konglong” and the snow in the background to represent “Kong Xue”.
Jia Yi’s management company issued a legal statement on February 5, refuting the dating rumors and asked netizens to stop spreading the rumors and sharing the details.
