K-pop stars JYJ's Junsu and EXID's Hani are officially dating.
In Jan. 1, Dispatch released paparazzi photos of the Korean stars confirming their romantic relationship. The two have reportedly been seeing each other for six months.
The website revealed that the two singers went on a night drive using Junsu's red sports car. They were headed to Han River Park in Yeouido, Seoul. According to the report, they were both seen coming in and out of each other's homes.
Photos reveal both stars in heavy accessories as Hani wore a hat and a mask aside from her thick-checkered wool scarf. She was almost unrecognizable in the photos except for her brown hair.
Junsu, on the other hand, wore sunglasses to hide his face in the photos.
As soon as Dispatch published the photos, agencies of both pop stars confirmed that they were indeed dating.
As reported by DramaFever, Hani's agency Yedang Entertainment said in a written statement, "Junsu helped Hani make the right decisions when EXID (rose to stardom with) 'Up and Down'... Junsu and Hani have been in a serious relationship since then."
Junsu's agency CJ Entertainment likewise released a statement saying that the two have always been close work friends. The agency however revealed that they could not share more about the relationship because it remains a personal matter.
Earlier reports by DramaFever say that Junsu fell in love and pursued Hani for her tomboyish personality. Back in her school days, Hani was a fan of TVXQ, the boy band Junsu was a member of which also inspired her to become a k-pop star herself.
After their official announcement, many fans took to blogs and several social media platforms to voice their support and send their well wishes. Many claim that the two lovebirds match very well and look happy.
Other fans took to Twitter to say their opinions. One Twitter user expressed her happiness for the couple but hope that Hani would remain strong since Junsu has a wide female fan base.
Meanwhile, the couple remains busy with their own professional projects. Junsu is set to return to the stage play Dracula as the show opens on Jan. 23 at the Sejong Cultural Central Large Stage.
Hani, on the other hand, is busy with her group EXID's promotion of "Hot Pink." The group signed earlier this week with Chinese entertainment agency Banana Project to help expand their market overseas.
