Is Suran Dating Anyone, What Do We Know About Her Age And Height?

Following a suggestive Instagram post and the fact that they have worked together on the professional front, the rumor mill started buzzing with folks speculating that Suran is in a relationship with a BTS member. But, is Suran dating him or anyone else? The South Korean songstress has not been generous with information about her love life but we were able to glean some interesting facts.

Like most K-pop stars who are making a global statement with their talents, Suran started her music career in a band but unlike many who start very early, she launched her career as a singer when she was already in her 20s. She is a singer-songwriter and record producer plying her trade in a country that boasts an entertainment circle with an array of musical talents that have attained global appeal. Regardless of the challenges of competing for a spot in the limelight with many talented musicians, Suran seems unfazed and geared up to hold her ground.

Suran’s Age and Early Life

Her given name at birth is Shin Su-ran and she was born on July 15, 1986, in the Metropolitan City of Busan, South Korea. Her family facts have not been verified, thus, nothing is known about the members of her family. Although the names of the academic institutions she attended have not been made available, the singer went all the way to college where she majored in Computer Science.

How Old Was Suran When She Started Singing?

She probably focused more on her education as she took her time and only started singing in her early 20s.

Asides the name Suran, the singer is also known by other stage names including Elena and Baily Shoo. The Korean entertainment industry welcomed her into the fold in 2014 when she made her debut as part of the duo Lodia on July 9. They (Effy and Suran) stormed the spotlight with the single “I Got a Feeling” under ATC Entertainment.

Early in 2017, Suran was a contestant on episodes 93-94 of King of Mask Singer, a South Korean singing competition that airs on MBC. A few months afterward, she collaborated with BTS’ Suga, rapper Changmo and Slow rabbit in the digital single Wine. Once dropped, the piece peaked at number 2 on the Gaon Digital Chart and sold more than 500,000 digital copies in one month. The single’s success paved the way for her career to shine.

Riding on the waves of the success she recorded with Wine, Suran’s debut EP – Walking, dropped on June 2nd, 2017 and peaked at number 30 while the title track dubbed 1+1=0 took the number 32 spot and sold more than 100,000 digital copies.

Suran has been nominated for several awards locally and she has won a lot of them as well. She scooped two 9th Melon Music Awards in 2017 in the categories of R&B/Soul and Hot Trend Award (alongside Suga of BTS). She also won two more awards – 32nd Golden Disc Awards in the category of Best R&B/Soul and 27th Seoul Music Awards in the category of R&B/Ballad Award.

Is Suran Dating Anyone?

Spurred by the speculations that she is dating BTS member Suga in 2018, the South Korean singer had to make a public statement to set the records straight. She first tendered a heartfelt apology for any misconception that stemmed from her Instagram post that fueled the rumor of a possible romance between her and Suga. Her initial posts on Instagram had been misconstrued to mean that she was dating Suga but Suran reiterated in another post that her relationship with the BTS star is strictly professional.

According to Suran, she met Suga in 2017, the same year they worked on the hit single Wine and their relationship has remained professional since then.

Whoever Suran is dating or dated is yet to be revealed as she keeps such details away from the public. She is perhaps focused on her health in recent times. During a session on the talk show Video Star in April 2019, Suran shared the news of her battle with cancer in 2015. She is a survivor of the deadly disease and went through mastectomy to fight it off.
