While HyunA and Yong Jun-hyung have garnered mixed reactions after publicly confirming their relationship, there seems to be no doubt about their affectionate bond.
HyunA and Yong Jun-hyung were spotted enjoying a sweet date at a mall in Gangnam, Seoul last weekend.
With numerous eyewitness accounts, one entertainment industry source mentioned, “The two of them were seen walking around the store, holding hands affectionately. They were casually dressed and seemed unbothered by the attention, confidently acknowledging their relationship.”
Witnesses testified that there was a sweet atmosphere surrounding the couple, who officially became a couple earlier this year.
HyunA surprised fans on January 18th by posting a candid photo on social media holding hands with Yong Jun-hyung with the caption “Please look at us nicely,” revealing their relationship publicly.
HyunA and Yong Jun-hyung’s respective agencies stated, “It’s difficult to confirm because it’s their personal lives.” However, the next day, Yong Jun-hyung acknowledged their relationship through a paid fan community message, saying, “You might have been surprised by the sudden news. We’re doing well, receiving positive energy from each other. I hope you watch over us kindly.”
With this, the two became a couple after debuting under CUBE Entertainment in 2009 as members of 4Minute and BEAST, respectively, and after 14 years, transitioned from colleagues to lovers.
However, their relationship sparked a variety of opinions among netizens. While many fans cheered for their ‘beautiful love’, some fans remained indifferent. This is partly due to Yong Jun-hyung’s involvement in the past scandal regarding illegally filmed videos and inappropriate conversations with singer Jung Joon-young, which still haunts him. Therefore, the public is keenly observing the honest actions of the couple in love.
