HyunA previously had almost a six-year relationship with Dawn, a rapper and singer-songwriter, before choosing to go separate ways in 2022. They were one of the most well-known couples in the Korean entertainment industry.
But the news didn’t receive positive responses from the fans; instead, they seemed disappointed. Their dismay stemmed from Junhyung’s involvement in the Burning Sun controversy. It was a 2019 sex and entertainment scandal concerning many K-pop idols and police officers.
Despite their dating rumors, both artists’ agencies came forward to clear the air. HyunA’s company remarked, We are involved with our artist’s personal life. On the other hand, Junhyung’s agency acknowledged the rumor by saying, Because it’s a personal matter, it’s difficult for us to confirm.
Just a person who invests her time mostly updating herself with the news surrounding the Korean, Thai, and Japanese entertainment industries or watching Asian dramas. Her interest in and knowledge of them encourages her to write about them. Writing is her peace in this chaotic world.
